Appointment Reminders

Would you like a reminder of your appointment time and date sending to your mobile phone? If so please contact the reception team on 01274 697600.

Patients Not Attending

During May 2015, 77 patients failed to attend a prebooked appointment with one of the doctors wasting 13hrs 20mins of surgery time.

61 patients didn't attend prebooked nurse appointments wasting 16hrs 20mins of surgery time and 18 patients didn't attend with the attached teams (physio etc) wasting 7hrs 35mins.

Repeated missed appointment will result in the patient being removed from the practice list and will need to register at another surgery.

Electronic Prescribing

In May 2015,the practice and its pharmacies went live on a system called Electronic Prescribing. Initially this will be used just for patients who have regular repeat medications. This system has the benefit of a greater security between the practice and the pharmacy. As a practice, we encourage all our patients to have a conversation with their pharmacy about the scheme and make a nomination of receiving pharmacy as soon as possible. Please note patients who already have a chemist receiving their prescriptions still need to have this conversation at the pharmacy.

Medical Students

The practice has moved to being a training practice for doctors in training and will be hosting third year medical students. The students will be working along side our regular GP's in the consulting rooms, and holding some surgeries of their own. All patients will be advised if the offered appointment is with a student, who is supervised by one of our regular doctors. If you are unhappy with this, you will be offered an alternative appointment, but we cannot guarantee it will be on the same day.

Online services for Low Moor Medical Practice users

 

People registered with our surgery can now book appointments and request repeat prescriptions at a time convenient to them, thanks to GP online services. These services enable people to book GP appointments and request repeat prescriptions via their computer, smartphone or tablet at a time that suits them rather than calling or visiting the surgery.
 
This approach can save people a phone call or journey to the surgery, and allow them to do what they need to when the surgery is closed. Patients living with a long term health condition can also benefit by having a greater involvement in their healthcare as they can access test results and keep track of their treatment.
 
All patient information is kept securely. This page on the surgery website www.lowmoormp.co.uk allows access to the information patients need.
 
This service works alongside traditional methods of accessing services, it does not replace them. By allowing people who want to make appointments and order prescriptions this way, it should become easier for others to get through on the phone to the surgery during busy periods.
 
If you want to register for GP online services you will need to fill out a form at the surgery and show two forms of ID one of which should have a photo (such as a UK passport or driving licence) and the other should have your address (such as a council tax bill). If you don’t have photo ID or anything with your address on it, it doesn’t mean you will not be able to use online services, our surgery staff may be able to help.
 
To register for GP online services, drop in and ask us, or to find out more visit the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk/GPonlineservices.
If you are already rgistered and struggling to access the system, we are running a series of masterclasses through December 2016 and January 2017. Please call the reception team for dates and times and to book your place.
