PPG (PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP) NOTICE
PLEASE CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO FIND OUT ABOUT RECENT PPG CHANGES IN OUR JULY 2017 LETTER
AS FROM THE 19TH SEPTEMBER 2016 WE ARE MOVING TO A GP FIRST APPOINTMENT SYSTEM. WE WILL BE OFFERING AN INCREASE IN DOCTOR'S TELEPHONE CONSULTATION APPOINTMENTS TO BE BOOKED ON THE DAY WHERE PATIENTS WILL BE OFFERED A GP TELEPHONE CONSULTATION.
HOWEVER, SHOULD THE GP FEEL THAT A PATIENT SHOULD BE SEEN OR ISSUED A PRESCRIPTION THEN THEY CAN ARRANGE THIS FOR THE PATIENT. ROUTINE AND FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOLLOWING THE DISCRETION OF THE GP.
PRESCRIPTION PROCESSING CHANGES 2017
COMMENCING 1ST APRIL 2017 YOU WILL NEED TO ALLOW 72 WORKING HOURS FOR YOUR PRESCRIPTION TO BE PROCESSED FROM ORDERING TO COLLECTION. THIS WOULD REQUIRE YOU TO ORDER PRESCRIPTIONS EARLIER IF NOT ALREADY DOING SO TO ENSURE THAT MEDICATION IS READY ON TIME.
IF YOU ARE ON ANY TYPE OF BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION OR HAVE NOT HAD YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKED IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS, THEN CAN YOU PLEASE VISIT THE SURGERY TO CHECK YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE. THERE IS NO NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AS WE HAVE A SELF SERVICE BLOOD PRESSURE MACHINE AVAILABLE TO USE IN RECEPTION.
