West Cheshire is moving the out of hours call handling to NHS 111 on Thursday 31st March 2016. The answerphone message for patients when ringing the surgery will be changed to advise the patients to hang up and redial 111 if they need medical advice before the surgery re-opens. Practices will not redirect the call, as calls to 111 are free, and enable 111 to re-contact any disconnecting calls. They need to see the number from which the patient has called – not a redirected number. This service has now been live for nearly 3 years.
Online Pre-Bookable Appointments
You can now pre-book online appointments for our Nurse Practitioner Louise Hammond. She can prescribe and make refarrals, she can help you in many areas instead of seeing a GP such as; women's health problems, contraceptive advice, children's illnesses, musculoskeletal problems, acute chest problems, minor illnesses, minor injuries, acne and other skin conditions.
Friends & Family Test
The Friends and Family test was a new contractual requirement from December 2014. It is for practices to offer all patients the opportunity to complete the test and then publish the results. It is for patients to provide feedback on the care and treatment they have received and to help improve services. You can complete the questionnaire by following the ling on this homepage on the right hand side or you can complete a questionnaire next time you visit the surgery.
OVER 40'S NHS HEALTH CHECKS
The free NHS health Check is your chance to get your free midlife MOT. For adults in England aged 40 - 74 without a pre-existing condition, it checks your circulatory and vascular health and what your risk of getting a disabling vascular disease is. The NHS Guide explains what happens at the check, the reasons for having it done, and how to lower your risk.
If you would like to have this health check (strongly recommended!), please ask for a healthcheck appointment with our Healthcare Assistant.
