Birthday Annual Review

From April 2014 we will be changing the way we manage patients with long term health conditions.      Patients who have conditions such as diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypothyroidism, cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure will have a single review for all their long term medical problems each year in the month of their birthday .  This will reduce the number of visits patients have to make to have their long term conditions monitored which we hope will be much more convenient.  We would encourage you to contact the practice around the time of your birthday to book a Birthday Review  appointment if this applies to you.

Transferring from the old system to a birthday review system is going to be challenging and may result in some patients being seen earlier or later than they initially expected.  The doctors would like to thank all their patients for their support whilst we are implementing these changes

 

 

Home Visits

Home visits are carried out if you are too ill to visit the surgery. Please always phone as early as possible in the day giving the receptionist some idea of the problem so that the doctor can assess the urgency. Please remember that home visits are very time consuming and that facilities are better in the surgery than at home. Children can usually be safely wrapped up and brought to the surgery. Patients with rashes can be put in a separate room. We request you therefore attend the surgery whenever it is possible.
