Changes to Extended Hours

Following the results of the annual survey organized by the PPG, the practice has decided to change the way if offers extended hour consultations for patients. As opposed to doing these ALL on Saturday mornings, as we currently do, we will now offer new additional telephone consultation slots EVERY weekday between 6.30pm and 7pm as well as having 2 GPs doing appointments every other Saturday morning at the surgery.

The hope is that this is fairer for all, as many have said they cannot wait or make Saturday mornings but would like to speak to a GP later in the day during the week. This change will start from the beginning of January

Diabetes Annual Reviews

We are changing the way diabetes annual reviews are carried out

Have you heard about Care Planning?

Care planning gives you the opportunity to have more information and be more involved in your health care.

So what does this mean for me?

Your annual review will happen over two separate appointments.

At the first appointment:

  • You will be asked to attend the surgery to have all your checks and measurements done.
  • Shortly after this your test results will be sent to you. This will give you the chance to be able to think about what the results mean to you and what you might like to discuss at your care planning appointment.

At the second appointment:

  •  You will be able to discuss your results and talk about what is important to you.
  • By the end of the appointment you will have a plan that has been agreed jointly.
