** WE HAVE LOTS OF AVAILABLE ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE THROUGH MAY **

Important Patient Notice

For the foreseeable future we will be moving to primarily telephone or online modes of consultation, although we will still continue to see people who need to come in to surgery, and some clinics will still run in limited way.

If you have an appointment already booked, please do not come to the surgery. Instead, the doctor or nurse will call you to discuss your problem and see if they can help without coming into surgery.

Please keep your phone nearby around your allotted appointment time.

We are all grateful for your patience and understanding in this period of uncertainty, and wish to reassure you that we are here to help and care for you as normal.

Covid-19 is a viral infection which is spreading across the world. It is infectious and potentially fatal.

Information is changing on a regular basis. The latest current guidance can be found on:

 https://www.england.nhs.uk/coronavirus/primary-care/

Please note: If you have any communication needs and wish to access information in a different format please notify a member of Reception.

  • OUT OF HOURS INFORMATION:

If you require urgent medical assistance that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please call 111 where you will be put through to the NHS 111 helpline who will be able to assist you further

NHS111 is a free to call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England.

The service is part of the country’s NHS telephone and triage and advisory services

 The Choose Well website is an excellent resource which includes details of services in the area, including local pharmacies and walk-in centres, and self-care information.  It provides a wealth of clear, clinically assured self-care information for patients, covering over 40 topics in 64 languages; each topic comes with a downloadable pdf leaflet to help you to self-care. www.choosewellmanchester.org.uk 

 We are now providing an electronic prescribing service.  If you nominate a preferred local pharmacy we can send your prescriptions directly to them electronically.  The advantage of this service is that you will not have to collect the prescription from the surgery, simply collect the medication from your pharmacy.  If you are interested, please go to your preferred pharmacy and they can arrange.

 

 PATIENT NHS CHECKS

 You may be entitled to an NHS Health Check please check with Reception.

This involves an appointment with the HCA who will record medical details, check height, weight, blood pressure and relevant blood tests.  She will then review your case following the results.

Named Accountable General Practitioner

Named Accountable General Practitioner

NHS England has indicated that all practices must inform their patients of their named accountable GP as required in the 2015/16 GP Contract.

All new patients who registered with the practice from 1 April 2015 are allocated their named accountable GP within 21 days of registration.

We have therefore been offering this information for some months now but if you are still unsure of your named practitioner please ask a member of our Reception Team.

Although you do have a named GP the Practice operates a service where you are free to choose which GP you see. Our patients  are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements, as we work as a team at the practice.

Your named accountable GP is Dr Jaiswal, who will take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract, ensuring that they are delivered to all of our patients where required.
