NAMED GP FOR ALL PATIENTS
Since April 2015, practices have been required to provide all of their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them. (For the avoidance of doubt, this does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice). We are aware that many patients already know who their named GP is as a result of procedures that we have put in place but if you do not know who it is and would like to, and/or wish to discuss this matter further, please contact us on 01823 432361 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of staff will be happy to assist you.
NHS HEALTH CHECKS
These are intended to assess the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. These checks are available to patients aged 40 - 74 who do not have any of the aforementioned pre existing diseases. They will be offered every five years. We particularly welcome Carers to have an NHS Health Check. The screening clinics will be run by our new practice nurse Sue. Please ask at reception for further details and click here to be redirected to the official NHS webpage.
