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.

Practice Health Champions volunteer with their GP Practice to deliver health and wellbeing activities to patients and the wider community. To become a Practice Health Champion you will need to attend a 2 day training course which will develop your knowledge, skills, experience and passion. Following this the Practice Health Champions will volunteer with the practice for approximately 3 hours per week. The Practice Health Champions will meet regularly with GP practice staff to identify and explore health concerns and issues which affect patients of the practice.

For more information contact 01274 322662, email practice.champions@bdct.nhs.uk. Application forms are available from the above or the practice reception. Closing date for application is 4th July 2015.

Appointments

appointment_1Appointments are bookable up to 2 days in advance but we also have a limited number of appointments available up to 2 weeks in advance These are at the end of the working day to allow workers time to arrange their shifts. The phones are automatically switched on at 8.00am

Appointments

Appointments are made for one person only, if more members of your family need to see the doctor please advise the receptionist when booking and you will be given the appropriate number of appointments. Appointments are for 10 minutes only during which time the doctor will only be able to deal with one issue. If you feel that your problem will take longer please discuss with the receptionist. You may request an appointment with any of our doctors, however we cannot guarantee that they will always be available. All our doctors have access to your records and will be able to help you.

Workers

We offer a number of workers appointments on Monday evening from 6.30pm to 7.30pm with either a doctor or with a Nurse Practitioner. Please call the reception in advance to book one of these sessions. Unfortunately at this time we are unable to offer a nurses appointment during this period. N.B. Our Nurse Practitioners are able to diagnose, prescribe and refer patients on, they are unable to offer Fit Notes (usually known as sick notes).
