Providing lifelong care that is: safe, effective & dependable - for all of our community.

 

September 2020 - In order to keep our patients safe, the surgery is continuing to operate a triage model of care.  Once your care needs have been assessed by a clinician - either by phone or by reviewing your online consultation - please be assured that you will be offered a face-to-face appointment if the clinician feels that your care cannot be handled over the phone. 


Please use Online Consult - This is a new service for all NHS GP Practices and our reception team can walk you through how to use it.

Further to recent Government Guidance on wearing face masks, please see document from Worcestershire & Herefordshire LMC, stating that our GP's are not in a position to provide patients with exemption letters.  There is more information about this in our NEWS section of this website.

 

We have been issued with Guidance Notes for Parents of Children who are Self-Isolating from Worcestershire & Herefordshire LMC.  Further information is in 'Our  Documents' section of this website. 


THE SURGERY - INCLUDING DISPENSARY - WILL BE CLOSED ON THE MORNING OF WEDNESDAY, 23RD SEPTEMBER FOR CLINICAL GOVERNANCE

Doctors and non-NHS letters

Time spent on completing forms and preparing reports takes the GP away from the medical care of his / her patients. Most GPs have a heavy workload, even if your GP is not in the surgery full time they will be working long hours and paperwork takes up an increasing amount of their time.

 

Non-NHS work must be undertaken outside of NHS contracted time. 

 

I only need the doctor's signature - what is the problem?

 

When a doctor signs a certificate or completes a report, it is a condition of remaining on the Medical Register that they only sign what they know to be true. Therefore in order to complete even the simplest of forms, the doctor needs to check the patient's entire record. Carelessness or an inaccurate report can have serious consequences for the doctor, with the General Medical Council or even the Police.
