We have received new guidance regarding the wearing of face masks in GP surgeries from NHS England.

Patients who have any respiratory symptoms (coughs, wheezing, etc.) should continue to wear facemasks / face coverings, if tolerated, when coming into any of our buildings. This is for the safety of our other patients, our staff and our community.
If you are Covid-19 positive please do not come into any of our buildings, unless specifically invited in by a clinician.
Patients without respiratory symptoms or who are Covid-19 negative no longer need to wear facemasks when coming in for an appointment, unless this is their personal preference.
In addition, GP and Pharmacy Staff are now not required to wear facemasks, unless it is their personal preference.

NHS England has launched a survey to find out people’s views and experiences of veterans mental and physical health services.  The information gathered will be used to help inform the development and provision of these services in the future.

OUR NEXT PATIENT GROUP MEETING IS:

WEDNESDAY 29TH JUNE 1.30PM AT BEEFORD

We are pleased to announce we have been  accredited as a veteran friendly practice.  Please let the practice know if you have ever served in the armed forces, even for just a day.  This includes both men and women and could include service in the Second World War, Northern Ireland, the Falklands, Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq. We can then update your health record.

We are looking to set up a Veteran Support Group, if you would like to be involved, please contact our Business Manager terriwardell@nhs.net 

Message for patients of our practice with Diabetes:

As you know, as part of your diabetes annual review, urine testing is really important to look for early signs of kidney damage. We do this through a test called the albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR) test, which looks for small amounts of protein in the urine.
We know people struggle to do the test, and many would prefer to avoid the clinic and test at home wherever possible. That’s why we are offering a new, NHS funded service to allow people to do this test at home with a kit and a smartphone.
If you meet the criteria for the new service, you will receive a text message (or a letter) about this testing process, which is run by Healthy.io. If you want to find out more, please click here: https://lp.healthy.io/minuteful_info/.
Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

Could we remind patients that anyone with a cough, including children, should have a negative PCR test before booking an appointment.

Many thanks
