As from February 1st 2020 we welcome Dr Fitzjohn back to the practice. There will be changes at both our sites so that we can release more appointments to patients and relieve pressure from facing a workforce crisis in the coming years . We have evaluated our workforce in line with the 5 year plan and recognised that in order for our G.P's to work longer under the current demand of the NHS we need to reduce stress and workload. For us to safely deliver this without effecting patient care we have spent the last 2 years building a strong Multi disciplinary team to support the G.P's in reducing sessions . Please see our staff section on the website so you can clearly see which days and which site our regular G.P's will be working from .
We advise all patients to:
Register for our online services where possible. This is because it is the most effective way for you to book or cancel appointments , view your test results and access your medical record.
Nominate a pharmacy. This is so your prescriptions can be sent electronically for you to go to the pharmacy to collect your medication.
Ensure you notify the practice of a change of address or telephone number. This is so we can communicate with you about our services or at the request of a gp.
Did you Know:
You can now self refer to some services such as Physiotherapy , Live Life social prescribing and counselling services without the need to see a GP .
For more information and contact details please look on our appointments page under self - referral
You can join our Patient Participation Group and contribute to patient experience at our practice, for further details please click on the Patient Group link.
Medicines Continuity of Supply - Brexit
Today the Government has set out a new scheme to ensure a sufficient and seamless supply of medicines in the UK in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit. In the unlikely event we leave the EU without a deal in March 2019, based on the current cross-Government planning scenario we will ensure the UK has an additional six weeks supply of medicines in case imports from the EU through certain routes are affected. This is the current planning assumption but will of course be subject to revision in light of future developments.
Under the medicines scheme, pharmaceutical companies should ensure therefore they have an additional six weeks supply of medicines in the UK on top of their own normal stock levels. The scheme also includes separate arrangements for the air freight of medicines with short shelf-lives, such as medical radioisotopes. The
Government is working closely with companies who provide medicines in the UK to ensure patients continue to get the medicines they need. I am today also writing to pharmaceutical companies with more details.
Hospitals, GPs and community pharmacies throughout the UK do not need to take any steps to stockpile additional medicines, beyond their business as usual stock levels. There is also no need for clinicians to write longer NHS prescriptions. Local stockpiling is not necessary and any incidences involving the over ordering of medicines will be investigated and followed up with the relevant Chief or Responsible Pharmacist directly.
