IMPORTANT PRACTICE CHANGES


June 2018


  


We would like to welcome back Dr C Phillips from maternity leave.


 


Dr Phillips will be working 5 sessions, which for June will be usually on a Wednesday morning, all day Thursday and Friday.  You will be able to pre-book appointments from the 11th June 2018.


 


Dr James Thompson will continue to work two sessions on a Monday, alongside Dr Jurgita, who will also work other sessions over the week normally on a Tuesday and Friday.


 


Dr J Mandhar will work 5 sessions usually all day on Tuesday and Wednesday and a Friday morning.


 


Rachel Brown the Nurse Practitioner will work when available on a Thursday.


 


We will still run open surgeries each day to primarily see urgent problems.  The open surgeries will be run by the duty GP or Nurse Practitioner; both are able to deal with most acute problems and can issue prescriptions.

New Data Protection Regulations from May 2018 (GDPR)


 


Under the new data protection regulations introduced from 25 May 2018, we will continue to contact patients via text messages regarding the delivery of care if they have provided consent to do so.


If practices are sending messages about recommended treatment for the management of a specific health issue, then this is defined as providing appropriate care for patients, not marketing purposes.


If you would like to opt out of any future contact via text messaging then please contact the surgery who will provide a form for completion.


 


Improving SMS text Communication


We want to improve the way we communicate with patients.  Some of you are already receiving text message reminders for appointments.  We want to widen the number of patients benefiting from this service and we want to use the service for more than just appointment reminders.  For example, we might text you to let you know when a prescription is ready to collect or to ask you to come for your annual review.


 


From March 2018, if we've got your mobile number, we'll include you in this service unless you've opted out. 


Please let us know if you would not like to be part of this service and please make sure you inform us if your mobile number changes.
