NEW CLINICAL IT SYSTEM
Our new clinical system went live on 23 June. Prior to changing patients were informed of the change and its implications via text message, if a valid mobile number was registered (over 5,000 texts were sent), full details were made available on this website, details were published in the parish magazine, posters were placed in surgery and local chemists, leaflets were available in our waiting areas for patients to take away, staff informed patients when calling and messages were also placed on the side of prescriptions
As we have moved to a completely different clinical system, patients who previously used patient online will need to re-register as we cannot transfer their accounts over. This is due to the fact the new clinical system places greater security requirements on passwords. We are now accepting registration for online services for patients over the age of 16 and proxy access for parents of children aged 0-11. We do not offer access to 11-15 year olds. Please ensure you bring photo identification with you. The web address to access patient online is contained within your login details document (https://systmonline.tpp-uk.com) and links are on this website (click the links 'request an appointment' or 'repeat prescriptions').
HELP WITH PATIENT ONLINE
For assistance with patient online click here. To log on please type the address on your letter which contains your username and password to your browsers address bar or click the links at the end of this page. Please note, this service is provided, supported and hosted securely by our clinical systems provider.
If you require patient online access for your child, please note you must be registered at the practice yourself, access will be via proxy. Access to your child's record will cease when your child becomes 11 years old and you will not be permitted access after this time. This is in line with the NHS England and the Royal College of GP guidance.
SURGERY CLOSURE - TRAINING AFTERNOON
The practice will be closed from 12.00 pm on Thursday 9 November 2017 for training.
There is still an urgent service available should you need to access healthcare during the afternoon and if you do need NHS help during this time please call 111.
Click here to view our practice area, once open please input your postcode where indicated and press 'check if postcode is in catchment area'. If your postcode is not in our practice area, you will need to register at another GP surgery.
From 2015, practices could allow patients who live or move outside of the practice area, to register as an out of area patient and patients could be seen at any GP who participated in the scheme. This is a voluntary scheme to which the practice does not have to participate.
Due to the number of new housing developments within our practice area, we have decided not to participate in the voluntary scheme in order to ensure that we offer the best possible service to patients within our area. Unfortunately this means that patients, who live or move outside our practice boundary, will be asked to find a new GP or be removed by Primary Care Support England if they suspect a patient has moved.
The practice has recently undergone a focused inspection and our report is now available to view. Please click here.
Accountable/Named GP For All Patients
The Practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP (identified as your usual GP on your medical records).
Please note there is no need to telephone the Practice, it is for information only. Please feel free to ask the reception staff when you next visit the Surgery of who your named doctor is.
Our named Accountable GP's at the Practice are Dr G Harrison, Dr S Chubb, Dr H Turner, Dr L Boyle, Dr I Shaikh.
Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the Practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Having a Name Accountable GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the Practice.
The Self Care Forum
It is now winter and we are seeing many people with the common cold, who could manage themselves. Please have a look at the 'Self Care Forum' for help with conditions such as low back pain and coughs. A great self-help resource for common ailments.
