NOTICES

Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) – Put Patients First Campaign to save General Practice  Despite carrying out 90% of all NHS patient contacts, general practice only receives 8.39% of the NHS budget in the UK — an historic low. By 2017, this is projected to plunge to just 7.29%.  As a result, general practice is facing a growing crisis.  Due to the sheer volume of GP workloads, in this year alone, patients will have to wait longer than a week to see their GP on at least 27 occasions.  The RCGP are asking patients to sign a petition to demand that the Northern Ireland Executive acts now to ensure practices have the resources they need to continue to provide the high quality care patients deserve.  To get involved and sign the on-line petition please click on the link below and follow the instructions:  http://www.rcgp.org.uk/campaign-home/get-involved/petition.aspx

CANCELLING AN APPOINTMENT? CAN'T GET THROUGH ON PHONE? We have just set up a new facility where you can text us if you wish to cancel an appointment.  You just need to text your name, date of birth and name of person you have appointment with to 0774 509 3174. PLEASE NOTE WE CANNOT REPLY ON THIS PHONE SO DO NOT PUT ANY OTHER INFORMATION IN YOUR TEXT.

CHANGE OF ADDRESSES  You may update your details by downloading a form from our "News" section on this website.  You can return the form to us by email/post/drop in at reception/in our tick and post boxes.  Remember it is vital that we have your correct details in the event that we need to direct emergency services to your home. We thank you for your co-operation in this regard.

SELF TESTING OF BLOOD PRESSURE - The Practice is trialling a system where patients can check their own blood pressure as they wish.  This is open to all patients but we would especiallity encourage patients >40 who have not had their blood pressure checked in the past year, or patients on treatment whose blood pressure has been well controlled on recent annual review.    The monitor is located in the Reception Area with guidance on how to use the machine. 

CARERS  A carer is someone who regularly provides a substantial amount of care for example a young person under 18 looking after a parent/brother/sister, looking after a relative with a disability, the parent of a child with special needs, a friend or relative looking after an older person.  As a practice we want to support the carers role and recognise the input they have into the life of the person they care for. Please go to our "other information" section on this website for support and advice.

PATIENT SUGGESTIONS  Patients may make suggestions/ideas to the practice which will positively help us ensure a quality service to all our patients.  Please see our "News" section for further information on how you can do this.
