Latest news – February 2020

You now have access to the NHS App. We can help in practice with any queries relating to the app including registering for this service. You can also find information on our digital inclusion guide.
Please note, any issues we become aware of relating to use of the app will be posted on the practice website along with estimated downtime (if known). For troubleshooting tips www.nhs.uk/apphelp; for further help please visit www.nhs.uk/contact-us/nhs-app-feedback-form.
The NHS App has been developed by the NHS in England. It is a new way for patients to connect to your practice and other NHS services, allowing them to:
  • check their symptoms using the health A-Z from the NHS website
  • find out what to do when they need help urgently, using NHS 111 online
  • book and manage appointments at your GP practice
  • order repeat prescriptions for collection at your practice or a pharmacy they have already nominated
  • securely view their GP medical record
  • register to be an organ donor
  • choose how the NHS uses their data
You can also find more information in the practice. Just ask for a leaflet!
The NHS App is available to download now from the Google Play or Apple app store.

Please DO NOT book a GP appointment or attend the GP practice if you have recently visited mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan or Thailand and have symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath. You must call 111 (NHS non-emergency helpline) immediately who will advise further. Thank you.

 

We must stress to patients with appointments booked that if you are unable to make the appointment to please rearrange. We are having difficulty booking patients in.

We are pleased to inform patients that the new partnership with Dr Hussain and Dr Haris is now in place.  We have embraced the NHS five year forward view and have a team of Advanced Nurse Practitioners working alongside a new team of Doctors and nursing staff.  We are committed to establishing a team that will work together to make care better for patients.

We are also pleased to have Angela Powell and Maggie Hughes on board as the new Practice Manager and Assistant Practice Manager respectively who will work with the Partners and Practice team in moving the practice forward.

Telephone Access

We have been working closely with the telephone company and conveyed feedback from patients and staff regarding telephone wait times.  As of 30th April 2019 a call queuing system has been introduced and the practice will continue to monitor this closely.  We appreciate the time patients take in giving feedback as this helps to improve our services.

Online appointments

The number of pre-bookable online appointments with Doctors and Advanced Nurse Practioners have been increased.  Booking appointments online saves time for patients and also reduces the call waiting times on the phone as you can make an appointment online anywhere anytime without delay.
