Noticeboard

A recent survey found that almost a third of GPs already employ a pharmacist in their practice and a further 16% are considering this move. The Village Practice is now part of the national NHS pilot to include a clinical pharmacist in our GP practice. The pharmacist will offer patient appointments for long-term conditions such as diabetes or asthma, medicines reviews and other medicines-related support, including discussing side effects. The pharmacist can also help patients with their medicines following a stay in hospital. Having a pharmacist working at our surgery will increase the available appointments, ease the workload of GPs and provide valuable medicines support”

Dear Patients

Our Quick Access Clinic is one of the busiest clinics in the Practice and we are very proud to offer this exceptional access for our patients.

In recent months the clinic has been extremely busy and we have been forced to call Doctors in from their annual leave to try and help us manage the numbers of patients and we are pleased to say we have never turned a patient away. However this is not sustainable, and for the safety of patients and our staff we are implementing a policy to ‘cap’ the number of patients attending the clinic if numbers become unmanageable.

Please be aware we do not take this decision lightly and will only put these measures in place if completely necessary.

If this happens patients will be

  • Informed by Reception as soon as possible
  • Asked if your problem can wait till the next day, in which case they will be asked to come to next day Quick Access.
  • If not, then a message will be taken and this will be reviewed by a Doctor within 3 hours and triaged to be seen later that day.
  • If your problem is more urgent you may be asked to attend a clinic at another location.

We very much appreciate your support in this matter

Kind regards

 

Amanda Meehan

Practice Manager
