GP Patient Survey

Your views can help improve local GP and health services

Some patients registered at this GP practice will soon be invited to take part in a national survey about their experiences of local NHS services.
It covers issues that concern patients, such as access to care and satisfaction with treatment.

If you receive a questionnaire, please help NHS England by filling it in as soon as possible.
It is really important that we hear your views, even if you have received a questionnaire like this before. Your response will help us to improve GP practices and other local NHS services so they better meet your needs.

Latest news

Call for people aged 70 and over to contact the NHS for their COVID-19 vaccination  

We are now asking people aged 70 and over who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19, and who would like to be, to contact the NHS to arrange a jab. Until now the NHS has asked people to wait until they are contacted to help ensure that those who are most vulnerable are protected first – and that remains the case for most people. However, to ensure absolutely everyone is offered the vaccine, people aged 70 and over can now contact the NHS so they can be vaccinated by the middle of this month.

People in this group should book their vaccination through the National Booking Service which allows patients to choose a time slot and location that suits them. Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.

NOTE TO ALL PATIENTS:

Covid-19 Update:  We are following NHS England guidance with regards to putting safety procedures into place to ensure future plans for the surgery are safest for all. Please see the link on page for up to date Government Covid-19 information

MASKS

For help with wearing mask – please click on the Gov website as this will give you the required information. Please note we CANNOT issue letters for people who are unable to wear masks as this is not an NHS service.

APPOINTMENTS

The practice will be using video and telephone communications for some consultations. Before joining a video consultation, please can you ensure your camera and microphone settings allow third-party access.

Following current guidance with regards to the Coronavirus the practice will continue to allow access to the practice on a social distancing level (please use the buzzer for entrance) and all patients will need to follow the guidance especially in the waiting area, and around the building.

PRESCRIPTION COLLECTION

If you need to collect a prescription please call between 4-5pm whilst ensuring you are complying with social distancing (and have no symptoms). We will require you to take this opportunity to nominate a Pharmacy for further prescriptions so that they can be sent electronically. We take this decision to ensure we can protect all patients and staff.

If you need to speak to a member of the team please ring 0161 766 8221.

ZERO TOLERANCE

Please may we remind patients of our zero tolerance policy.  We are all working together through this Pandemic and this very stressful time, and would appreciate your understanding while providing the best care possible to all our patients. The Practice is still open its usual core hours.

Monthly Staff Training

The practice will close between 1pm and 3.30pm every 3rd Tuesday of each month for mandatory staff training to keep up to date to improve patient care and experience.

If you require medical assistance during this time please call the practice line and you will be directed to the BARDOC GP service line for advice.
