SURGERY IMPROVEMENT WORK begins 1st September

Men-at-WorkWe are very excited to announce that building improvement work is due to commence on 1st September 2014 and will last for approximately 22 weeks.   The work will be undertaken in phases in order to keep disturbance and disruption to both patients and staff to a minimum.  The Phases are:


Phase 1 – Create a new Reception Office 

Phase 2 – Create a new Dispensary directly adjoining the waiting area.

Phase 3 – Create a new front desk reception area along with a new interview room.

Phase 4 – Create a new office for the Administration Team within the old dispensary and remove the port-a-cabin from the car park.

Phase 5 – Remodel the front entrance with automatic outer and inner sliding glass doors.  The existing seating and flooring in the waiting area will be removed and replaced with modern, compliant furniture and floor coverings.

Plans are available for viewing in the surgery foyer.  We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused during this time and will do our very best to ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum.

Thank you.


Your-GP-Cares-logo-196Your GP cares campaign

 

The environment in which GPs are striving to provide services is increasingly challenging.

Bullet pointAn increased demand on general practice caused by demographic changes, more complex health needs and some care moving out of hospitals is all contributing to unsustainable pressures on GP services.

Bullet pointBased on the current number of doctors working as GPs, and the staff who support them in the general practice team, there are simply not enough hours in the day to meet everyone’s needs.

Bullet pointGPs are telling the BMA that they are struggling to recruit to vacant posts in their practices and to find locum cover so that patients can still be seen if a colleague is sick or absent.

Bullet pointThe increasing demand and workload pressures are leading to low morale and stress causing many GPs to leave the profession or to consider early retirement.

Bullet pointMany GP practice buildings are old and need investment to create more room for patients to be seen or simply to make them fit for purpose.

Bullet pointGPs and their practice teams must have greater support to deliver high quality services that meet the requirements of all their local patients.
