Named GP for all over 75
To provide a more personalised approach to care for our patients over the age of 75 will have a named accountable GP. This GP will take lead responisibility for ensuring that all appropriate services are deliverd to each of their patients over 75 and they will:
- work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver multi-disciplinary care package that meets the need of the patient,
- ensure that the physical and psychological needs of the patient are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinician in the practice,
New Appointment System
From 3rd February, the GP appointment system is changing. The Doctors will no longer offer telephone triage calls. There will be an approx. 50/50 split between pre bookable appointments and on the day appointments. When you call at 8:15 you will be asked if you require a face to face appointment or a telephone consultation with the GP. If we have no routine appointments left for the day, you may be asked to call back the next day.
We will also be offering appointments with our Nurse Practitioner, Sister Jane Wells-Spittle. Jane, can recognise and deal with most common health complaints and is able to give advice or prescribe if appropriate. If your problem is more serious and needs the attention of a GP Jane can arrange this. Jane has undergone additional and extensive training to qualify as a nurse practitioner.
We will also have an On Call Duty GP available for acute medical emergencies. If you feel you have something urgent that needs dealing with on the day and that you really cannot wait another day, you will be offered an appointment with the Emergency Duty GP.
If you have an Emergency appointment then please be aware, if the GP gets called out on an Urgent house call or a patient walks in that needs dealing with more urgently then you will have to sit and wait in reception. You will be informed of what is happening but we will not be able to inform you of how long the wait will be.
