Patient Online Service

 

This practice offers the facility for patients to view online, export or print detailed coded information including documents held in their own records from 1st March 2017.

 

This practice currently offers the facility for patients:

  • to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online
  • to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or appliances
  • to view online, export or print summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and individual patient
  • to view all detailed coded records 

We will publicise and promote our online services to our practice’s patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and the Patient Participation Group.

 

 

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.

 

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

 

The average pay for GPs working in this practice in the last full financial year was £51,550  before Tax and National insurance. This is for three full time GPs, four part time GP sand one locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.

 

 

 

Confidentiality

We offer a confidential service which means we wont tell anyone else what you say, the only time this may happen is if we think you may be at risk, even then we will always try to get your consent first.

Smoking Cessation

We can provide you with help and advice on quitting smoking; this can be with information leaflets or things like nicotine patches or gum. If you are under 18 years of age we can refer you to one of our specialist smoking cessastion advisors.

Spots and Acne

Most young people get spots, and they do always seem to break out when you really dont want them to. They are caused by your glands producing too much sebum - a substance that your body produces naturally to stop your hair drying out. Too much sebum makes your skin oily and causes spots. Antibacterial face washes and creams can help, and its important you try not to squeeze as this can make the spots worse.

Acne is different from getting a few spots. It can appear on your back, shoulders and chest as well as your face and can sometimes be painful and cause you to feel self conscious or embarressed. Acne usually needs treatment with products only available on prescription, if you are finding your spots a problem come along and discuss with a doctor or our Nurse Practitioner.

Confidentiality Policy for Patients under 18 years of age

 

·          The Practice recognises that the principles of confidentiality apply equally to all patients, irrespective of age.

·          The Practice will ensure that its staff recognise that all patients under 18 are entitled to the same level of confidentiality as all other patients, including being respectful of any request to withhold information from their parents or guardians and take all necessary steps to ensure that this right of confidentiality is not inadvertently breached.

·          Where a young person requests a consultation at the Practice premises, they will be booked in to see a clinician in the normal way.

·          In the event that a young person attends the surgery without a pre-booked consultation and without adult support, the normal procedure for providing them with a consultation appointment will take place.

·          Should the young person independently request medical advice or treatment (including  contraceptive advice, abortion, other treatments and surgical procedures), the Practice clinician involved in the consultation with the young person will determine their competency and capability to understand the choices of treatment available and the consequences of such treatment.

·          When such competency and capability is deemed to exist, the Practice clinician will provide appropriate medical advice or initiate suitable treatment.
