NHS England - List Maintenance Project 2015
Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one
The NHS is carrying out work in Bath, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all. If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. For more information about this project please visit http://www.sbs.nhs.uk/primary-care-services/sw
For self help information - patients can download the app: ASAP Glos NHS.
See the research section in the policies tab for information about the National Diabetes audit.
See the update on the Prime Minister's challenge fund for Glos on the appointments tab.
A patient Group meeting was held on Tuesday 24th March 2015 at the surgery. The report is now available. If you are not already part of the patient group and would like to get involved please speak to reception. We correspond mainly by e-mail and hold occasional meetings at the practice.
Health visitor drop in clinic started in February 2015 - see "clinics and services" for details.
We now have our new surgery entrance door. This is to assist with easier access for patients and is also self-closing.
From 1st December you can complete a Friends and Family survey on-line or in the practice for each visit to the surgery. Please see the link under "Have your say" on right hand side of this page. We have received lots of positive feedback via this survey. You can also visit NHS choices to add feedback on the practice.
Information has been added to the website for the "EPS - electronic prescriptions service" and "Urgent Repeat medicines service" (on the prescriptions page) and the "Keep safe scheme" and "My cancer treatment" website (on the further information list).
We are currently experiencing a high level of demand for GP appointments and home visits. We have booked locum GP surgeries (with GP locums we use regularly and who know the surgery well) to try and help with demand. Please only request a home visit if you need medical treatment and are housebound. Routine appointments with GP's can be booked up to 8 weeks in advance if your problem is not urgent.
Out of Hours 01386 841894
Your call will be answered by the NHS 111 medical answering service. They will contact the most appropriate service for your symptoms.
In order to avoid blocking the line at busy times, we would ask you to ring for test results after 2pm weekdays on 841894. The doctor will have left a message for the receptionists to access on your notes.
If a visit is required, please try and phone early in the day. The doctor may telephone before visiting. Home visits are available for those patients who are housebound and in need of medical treatment.
