PRACTICE NEWS

Please note: If you have any communication needs and wish to access information in a different format please notify a member of Reception.

 

 We are now providing an electronic prescribing service.  If you nominate a preferred local pharmacy we can send your prescriptions directly to them electronically.  The advantage of this service is that you will not have to collect the prescription from the surgery, simply collect the medication from your pharmacy.  If you are interested, please go to your preferred pharmacy and they can arrange.

 

We now have an on-line service for making appointments and ordering prescriptions at the surgery.  If you are interested in this service and have not already registered, please speak to the receptionists.

 

PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP

This group is made up of patient representatives, general practitioners and management staff.  The group has now met three times and are in the process of discussing the views put forward from the questionnaires at the PPG meetings to come up with an action plans.

PATIENT NHS CHECKS

You may be entitled to an NHS Health Check please check with Reception.

This involves an appointment with the Practice Nurse who will record medical details, check height, weight, blood pressure and relevant blood tests.  She will then review your case following the results.

Home Visits

 

Please note that all home visit requests are triaged by a GP. This may mean that the problem can be dealt with over the phone. The GP may ask you to come down to surgery if appropriate or signpost you to a different service.

If deemed appropriate the visit may be carried out by a GP, a GP trainee or an Advanced Practitioner. Visits requested after 12pm may be carried out by an out of hours visiting service.

Home visits are a limited resource and are reserved for housebound patients. For full policy details please discuss with Practice Manager.
