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.

If you require a GP appointment out of opening hours you can now use the 7 Day Access Service.

The Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale (HMR) 7 day access service, along with BARDOC allows patients to have access to evening, weekend and Bank Holiday appointments.  This allows patients who struggle to attend their doctors during the week, because of work or family commitments, flexibility to use local health services. 

Patients will not get to see their own doctor during these hours, however the GP or Nurse that they see will have access to their medical record, subject to consent.
