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.

Training Practice

gp_and_bookThe practice gained the status of a teaching practice - responsible for training new general practitioners - in August 2004. There is a possibility that you may be offered an appointment with a trainee but you will be asked to consent to this first.

Trainee general practitioners in the UK are required to have spent a minimum of 2 and half years in accredited hospital training posts. This follows on from their 5 or 6 years training as medical students. On completion of their hospital posts they are required to finish their training in accredited training practices such as Mark Street Surgery.

During their attachment to the practice they are supervised and assessed. On successful completion of vigorous assessments (which includes written and oral exams, video analysis and other work based assessments) they are finally allowed to practice as independent GPs.
