PRACTICE NEWS

“If you have any communication/information needs relating to disability, impairment or sensory loss that you want us to know about, please speak to our reception team so we can record your preferred method of contact and ensure you can receive your health information in a format you can understand, for example large print.”

 

 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

homevisitsHome visits are reserved for patients who are genuinely too ill to attend surgery. It is now well accepted that a consultation with a doctor at the surgery allows a more complete medical assessment.

If you need a home visit please contact the surgery before 10.00am if at all possible.

Our receptionist will ask for details of your medical condition in order to help the doctor to assess the need for a home visit. The doctor may also telephone you for further details.

In cases of serious illness, this information may be vital to assess the type and speed of medical aid.

 

Please do not request home visits via the website, contact the surgery by telephone.
