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.

Aims and objectives

 

·         To provide a means for the whole of the general public registered with the practice to receive medical consultation, examination and diagnosis by a General Medical Practitioner, Practice Nurse, HealthCare Assistant and other associated health services. The service is to be provided in courteous, peaceful, practical, professional and comfortable surroundings.

 

·         The Practice will aim to provide the best possible healthcare within the scope of the NHS. It will be free at the point of use for the vast majority of services, however, any charges for services not covered by the NHS, will be made clear to the patient in advance of those services being carried out.

 

·          We will seek to offer alternatives to hospital based care and help develop patient care pathways.

 

·         The Practice will strive to maintain patient equality and confidentiality at all times and all fully registered patients will be afforded the same level of service regardless of age, sex, disability, sexual preference, ethnicity, nationality or religious beliefs. All staff and patients will be treated with dignity and respect.

 

·         Maintain high standards of patient care through monitoring performance and continuous learning and training. We will also maintain compliance with all legislative and industry requirements.

 

·         We will operate on a financially sound basis. The Practice will continue to look at ways in which it can become more efficient without compromising on quality and seek patient support to help us to achieve this.

 

·         The practice will continuously look at ways and means for the patient to take ownership of their own healthcare by educating and informing patients through our website as well as other lines of communication.
