We are getting an increasing number of reports from our Reception Team that patients are being verbally aggressive and abusive. This will not be tolerated.
General Practice is experiencing record demand for appointments and our Reception Team do an incredible job and are trying as best they can to address patient queries as quickly as possible. We do ask our staff to book patients an appointment with the most appropriate clinician which may not be a GP for instance our First Contact Physiotherapist, Tom, who works alongside us on a Monday afternoon and all day Wednesday. If you have a musculoskeletal problem our staff may direct you to an appointment with Tom. We also have a First Contact Mental Health Practitioner Joe who our Reception Team can book you in with if you are experiencing mental health difficulties.
If you have a concern please raise this through the appropriate channels. Information about our complaints process is visible on our website.
You can now use the NHS app, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. You can use the NHS app to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more. If you already use online services here at the Surgery you can continue to use this as well as using the app.
National Diabetes Audit - helping to reduce diabetes and improve diabetes care
We are taking part in an important national project about people at risk of diabetes and diabetes care and treatment in the NHS. The project is call the National Diabetes Audit (NDS). If you have diabetes, non diabetic hyperglycaemia, impaired glucose tolerance or prediabetes, your GP practice will share information about your diabetes care and treatment with the NDA. The type of information, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security. For further information about how your data is used please click here for the NDA patient information leaflet. Taking part in the NDA shows that we are committed to reducing diabetes and improving care for people with diabetes. If you do not want your information to be used, please inform the receptionist, your GP or nurse. This will not affect your care. To view the NDA reports click here
Examinations and sickness certificates
It should be noted that GPs do not provide sick notes for schoolchildren. When children are absent from school owing to illness, schools may request a letter from a parent or guardian, and this is no different during an exam period. However, children who have missed exams due to illness are frequently told by schools that a note from a doctor is required; but this cannot be provided by a GP. Aside from the fact that parents/guardians are responsible for excusing their children from school, GPs cannot provide retrospective sickness certification. When a child suffers from a long-term condition, any certification will be provided by the responsible specialist.
GPC has sought and received confirmation from the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator that Awarding Organisations make no requirement for pupils to obtain a medical certificate in support of their application for special consideration. Students are asked for information in support of their application, but this may take the form of a statement by the school. The Joint Council for Qualifications has confirmed that as far as they are concerned, if a student was absent from an examination as a result of illness and has the support of the school or centre to be absent, special consideration will be granted on that basis. Awarding organisations do not insist that medical proof is provided.
Information for teenagers
Please remember we offer a confidential service to everyone including under 16's. This means we DO NOT discuss the conversations you have with us with anyone else. You DO NOT need to tell the receptionist why you need to see a Doctor or Nurse. You are welcome to bring a friend or relative to your appointment or you can come by yourself if you prefer. You DO NOT have to sit in the main waiting area but can ask to wait somewhere more private.
Patient Participation Group (PPG)
We are looking for patients who are interested in joining our PPG. If you would like to be involved please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the surgery on 01751 431254.
