PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICE 31.10.18

Our colleagues in Public Health are predicting a surge in the number of people who will get pneumonia over the next couple of weeks. It is important  that if you have COPD that you ensure you have sufficient supply of inhalers and your other medication (including your rescue pack of antibiotics and steroids) and that you try and avoid mixing with people who already have coughs and colds over this time. Can we also take this opportunity to remind you to ensure you have had your flu vaccine this year and that you have had your pneumococcal vaccine in the past. Finally if you are still smoking we would encourage you to consider stopping to help your chest, discuss this at the surgery when you next attend.

For those who don't have COPD please contact us if you have a cough and fever that seems worse than usual, particularly if you are getting short of breath.

Named And Accountable GP

NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP


Under the terms of the latest GP contract, the Practice is required to allocate all patients a “named and accountable GP”. This is purely an administrative exercise as all of you will already have a named GP.


It is not essential that you see your "Accountable or usual GP" at all times, but we would encourage you to form alliances with at least two GPs within the Practice which will allow more flexibility when booking an appointment.   It is accepted however, that with the drop in clinic arrangements where the clinics are run by our Nurse Practitioner and our clinical Pharmacist that this is not always possible.

 

If you wish to know who your named GP is, kindly ask at reception and the practice staff will be happy to let you know.   


Please note that your named GP will not be available at all times and if your need is urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
