  Sharing your medical & personal information

 

As of January 2014, NHS England is sending out a leaflet entitled Better information means better care (2MB PDF) via junk mail. It is not addressed directly to you as a patient and it deliberately doesn’t include an opt-out form. The leaflet says you should “speak to your GP practice” if you want to opt out. This is misleading and is not necessary.

All you need do is write a letter ,download a simple form from the following website www.medconfidential.org/how-to-opt-out  or call at reception to collect a copy of the form instructing your doctor to opt you out, which you can fill in, sign and post or drop into your surgery reception for their attention.

 

 

THURSDAY 9th October 2014

   The surgery will be closed from 1pm for a training afternoon,we will re-open at 8.00am on Friday 10th October 2014. For any urgent medical problems please ring the surgery as normal and you will be diverted to our Out of Hours provider.

Self-Care - When and Why?

 

Self-care is the best choice to treat very minor illnesses and injuries. We have advice on our website regarding self-care and you can find information on www.nhs.uk.

 

A lot of illnesses can be treated in your home by using over the counter medicine and getting plenty of rest. A typical medicine cabinet could have -

Pain Relief - (Aspirin/Paracetamol/Ibuprofen)

Antihistamine - (Cream &/or tablets)

Oral rehydration sachets

Anti-diarrhoea tablets.

Antacids for indigestion

Sunscreen

etc

 

 

 

 

Choking

Chest Pain

Blacking Out

Blood Loss

 

A&E or 999 - When and Why?

Accident and Emergency services are very busy. They should only be used in very serious or life-threatening situations.

 

 

Emergency departments are found at most hospitals. They help people who show signs of being very ill or are badly injured. If you telephone 999 and tell the operator that there is a medical emergency, a response vehicle will be sent to your location.

Cuts

Strains

Itches

Sprains

GP - When and Why?

 

Make an appointment with your local GP when you have an illness or injury that will not go away.

You can make an appointment with a doctor for medical advice, examinations, and prescriptions.

 

There is an Out of Hours GP service which you can ring when the surgery is closed (ring the Practices normal number to be connected). This service will assess your needs and advise you on how to access appropriate healthcare at the time. They can also arrange for a doctor or nurse to see you if required.

Telephone Number

 

We now have a single local line operating alongside our existing telephone system. This number is 01535 631813. This line will feed into the choices option on our main number but remain at a local rate. Please note this is a single line only and so will only be able to take one call at a time (and have an engaged tone when already in use). We hope that this will give patients an alternative to the 0844 number which is a Lo-call number charging the equivalent of a local BT call (in line with goverment directions) although calls from mobiles and other service providers may vary.

 

                                  **********************************

  

A & E attendance

 

During the Practice opening hours of 8:00 - 6:00pm Monday to Friday we request that patients with conditions that can be treated in Primary Care contact the Practice rather than attend A & E for treatment.
