Noticeboard

We are following advice from NHS England that all patients must be triaged first before they can be seen. We are aware this has caused an increase in our phone traffic, we ask patients to be patient with us during this very busy time, or use the E-consult or Patient Access Service if they have access to the internet. 
Please think before you shout or abuse our staff, we are trying our best and do not tolerate abuse of any kind.

FLU - We are vaccinating patients on an appointment only basis, those who are in the at-risk categories will be actively encouraged to attend and the new over 50-64 co-hort will also be able to book in, depending on flu supplies. Please call the Practice to check if you can book in. 

COVID Vaccine - We are not able to offer this service currently, patients eligible will be contacted in due course. Please do not contact the Practice to book in, or for further details. This information will be shared once it is available. 

Accessible Information Standard

THE ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION STANDARD STARTED ON ON 1ST APRIL 2016.

The accessible Information Standard is a new law to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are given information they can easily read or understand.

The Accessible Information Standard tells NHS and adult social care organisations they must make sure people get information in different formats such as:

  • easy read
  • braille
  • advocate
  • British sign language
  • large print
  • email

THESE ARE 5 REQUIREMENTS OF THE STANDARD THAT WE MUST DO:

  • Ask people if they have any information or communication needs and how to meet these.
  • record those needs clearly and in a set way
  • highlight or flag the persons file or notes so it is clear they have communication needs and how to meet these needs.
  • share information about people's information or communication needs with other providers of NHS and adult social care when they have consent or permission to do so
  • take steps to make sure people receive information which they can access, understand and receive communication support if they need it.
