 Accountable/Named GP for ALL Patients - The Practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP Contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice as you currently do. Your accountable GP is the doctor you are registered with. If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask a receptionist when you are next at the surgery. 

NHS Health Checks are available for patients aged 40 - 74 years. This check is part of a national scheme to help prevent onset of health problems. Patients will be invited for a check once every 5 years READ MORE 

 We use Electronic Prescribing . In order to use this service, you must nominate a pharmacy to receive your prescriptions electronically. All repeats will be dealt with by your nominated pharmacy and you will be informed by them when the last repeat is dispensed. At this time, you will need to contact the surgery for a further prescription. You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time by contacting the surgery. 

NHS 111 - A SERVICE FOR NON EMERGENCY MEDICAL HELP making it easier for you to access local health services out of normal working hours. You can now ring 111 when you need help fast, but it isn’t a 999 emergency. You can ring 111, 365 days a year, to reach a full range of local health services, including out of hours, doctors, community nurses, emergency dental care and late opening chemists. Calls to 111 from landlines and mobile phones are free – just like 999.

 

 

 

 

We advertised the creation of a PPG around the Surgery and on this website. We devised a form for interested patients to fill in which asked for contact details and information related to their age and ethnicity. It was importatnt to accurately reflect the Practice Population in both age and ethnicity, but we also decided that our PPG should include the following:-

  • An even Male/Female split
  • At least 3 students to reflect our large student population
  • Somebody from one of the Care Homes we look after
  • a patient of the Addictions nurse
  • a parent of young children
  • a patient with a Disability

We received 14 expressions of interest in the Group, but since these did not include most of the types of patients identified above, we decided that a more targeted approach was necessary. During a meeting with with the Doctors, we identified some patients to approach directly. We contacted the Health/Welfare Reps of the Colleges we look after and invited them to join the Group, and we asked the Midwife and the Addictions Nurse to recommend a suitable Group member.

The final breakdown is as follows:-

4 students; aged 19-24

1 resident of a care home (84+ age range)

1 recovering addict (35 - 44 age range)

1 registered Disabled person (84+ age range)

1 mother of young children (25 - 34 age range)

1 person in the 75-84 age range

3 people in the 65 - 74 age range

3 people in the 55 - 64 age range

1 person in the 45-54 age range
