Noticeboard

Dispensary Text Messaging Service

From 1st May 2019 the practice intends to launch a new text messaging service for dispensing patients.  This will allow our Dispensing Team to notify you of when your repeat medication is ready for collection or whether there is a query with your repeat medication request which we need to discuss with you saving you from unnecessary journeys to the practice or unnecessarily long waits in the Dispensary queue.

If you collect your repeat medication from the practice dispensary and would like to receive notifications of when it is ready for collection please complete the SMS Consent form online or complete a consent form next time you're in the surgery.

If you already receive SMS Appointment Reminders then there is no need to complete another consent form.

For further information or if you have any queries then please speak to a member of our Dispensary Team.


NHS Prescription Fee

Please be aware that the NHS Prescription fee will rise to £9.00 from the 1st April 2019.

Named GP

The 2015-2016 GP contract in England extends the requirement to provide a named accountable GP to all patients, rather than just those over 75. The contract remains ‘practice based’, so overall responsibility for patient care has not changed.

The role of the named GP is to take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services and ensure they are delivered where required (based on the named GP’s clinical judgement) to each of their patients.

Having a named doctor means that your named doctor will:

  • take the lead for ensuring that we offer you all the appropriate services that we can,
  • work with relevant associated health and social care professionals where necessary for your care,
  • help to ensure that we recognise and respond to your physical and psychological needs,
  • ensure that you have access to a health check if you request one.

Having a named doctor does not mean that they will:

  • be available 24 hours a day
  • that you will have personal access to the doctor throughout the working week,
  • that this will be the only doctor or clinician at the practice who will provide you with care.

You do not have to see your named GP when you book an appointment; you can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in line with current arrangements and the Practice already operates personal lists for GPs and all patients have their own named, usual GP.

We have been, and will continue to, inform patients of whom their named GP is when they contact the practice, however, if you wish to have this information then please contact the reception who will be happy to inform you of your Named GP.
