PATIENT SURVEY RESULTS 2015
The patient survey results are now available to view on line. Please see 'Survey Report' on the right.
Each month many appointments are wasted by patients not attending and not cancelling their appointments.
If you no longer need your appointment or cannot attend pleasse help us by phoning or texting our new Cancellation Hotline on
07840 208 638
This will get you through without delay and allow the appointment to be available for another patient.
Please note the hotline is for cancellation only
New On-Line Services
The practice is expanding on-line services for patients. You can now book appointments, view a Summary Patient Record or order repeat prescriptions on-line.
If you wish to use these on-line services you will need to register for them at the practice, and, for security reasons, we require sight of evidence of a photo identity such as:-
Your driving licence or passport.
When you register for the on-line services you will be given a sheet with a username and password to enable you to log on the online services through either the appointment or prescription tabs above.
Once you have logged on for the first time follow the instructions to change your password to something you will remember, as unfortunately if you do forget your password you cannot retrieve it and would have to come to the practice to register for online services again if you wished to continue to use them.
The new service will replace the current on-line prescription service and existing users of the current on-line prescription service will need to register as above for the new service in order to be able to continue to order prescriptions on-line as well as using the other new on-line services.
PATIENT REFERENCE GROUP
We are always looking for new members to join our patient reference group. If you are interested in becoming a member please contact the Practice Manager, Sheila McLean on 01268 546411.
There are over 21 million attendances at accident and emergency (A&E) departments each year.
A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:
- loss of consciousness
- acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
- persistent, severe chest pain
- breathing difficulties
- severe bleeding that cannot be stopped
If an ambulance is needed, call 999, the emergency phone number in the UK. You can also dial 112, which is the ambulance number throughout the European Union.
Major A&E departments offer access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, although not all hospitals have an A&E department. At A&E a doctor or nurse will assess your condition and decide on further action.
If it is not an immediate emergency, call NHS 111. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can provide medical advice and advise you on the best local service to offer the care you need.
Less severe injuries can be treated in minor injuries units (MIUs) and NHS walk-in centres (WICs), which can treat patients without an appointment.
For illnesses that are not life-threatening you should first contact your GP surgery. Outside of normal surgery hours you can still phone your GP, but you will usually be directed to an out-of-hours service. The out-of-hours period is from 6.30pm to 8am on weekdays, and all day at weekends and on bank holidays. During out-of-hours periods you can also call NHS 111.
