As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
DR REEMA GHAI LEAVING
Dr Ghai is sadly no longer working routinely at this practice. She has been with us for 10 years and will be missed greatly. We would like to say a big thank you to her for all her hard work and dedication over the time she has worked with the practice. However, Dr Ghai will be doing locum sessions here - so we will be seeing her in the future.
PHARMACY BANK HOLIDAY OPENING TIMES

THINK! WHY A&E?
A&E departments treat patients with major, life-threatening illnesses and injuries, so you should only call 999 or visit A&E when your situation is critical. Using a more appropriate service will save you time-and could save lives.
Minor illnesses, ailments and injuries can be treated with plenty of rest and a well- stocked medicine cabinet that includes painkillers; cold and flu remedies; plasters; and a thermometer.
Pharmacists offer a range of health services. As well as dispensing prescriptions and other medicines, your pharmacy can provide free, confidential expert advice
and treatment for a variety
of common illnesses and complaints, without having
to book a GP appointment.
NHS 111 is a free telephone service, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You should call 111 if you urgently need medical help or information, but your situation is not life- threatening. When you dial 111, you will be directed to the best local services to make sure you get fast and effective treatment.
If you have an illness or injury that won’t go away, make an appointment with your GP. They provide a range of services by appointment, and when absolutely essential, can
make home visits. If you
need to see a GP outside of the surgery’s normal
opening hours, telephone
the surgery and your call will be forwarded to the GP out-of-hours service.
These centres provide consultations, guidance and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses, as well as emergency contraception and sexual health advice.

NEW TELEPHONE TRIAGE SYSTEM
We will be trialing a new access system called Telephone Triage System starting on 17th June 2014.
This means that instead of phoning the practice and having a receptionist book an appointment for you, the reception team will ask a few questions and then your request will be dealt by the triage GP or senior practice nurse. The triage team will call you back, establish what your needs are and book an appointment with the most appropriate clinician if that is necessary. Therefore if the clinical team think you need to see the doctor the same day then this will be booked for you straight away. Alternatively they may be able to help you without the need for you to be seen in person.

Sharing information in the NHS helps ensure that the quality and safety of services is consistent across the country. It can also highlight different diseases and conditions that may require more NHS investment. This is an opportunity for each of us to help the NHS provide high quality care for all.
GP Practices will soon be required to supply patients' data to the Health and Social Ca re Information Centre. Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others to make sure the NHS provides the best care possible for everyone.
