Training Practice

We are pleased to announce that we have been approved as a GP training practice. We will therefore be welcoming GP Registrars into our Practice from the 3rd February 2016.

Dr Gillgrass and Dr Costen are the practice trainers.

GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are continuing their training in practice.

We will be welcoming GP Registrar Dr Chukwumerije in February 2018.

 

Which service, when?

Inappropriate A+E attendances for problems that are neither emergencies nor related to acute injuries from accidents, cause delay in assessment for those who have genuine need. NHS Sheffield is keen to help you choose the right service for your needs at the time, i.e "the right place at the right time". That might be, self-care, pharmacist advice, walk-in-centre, GP (including urgent access as at Crystal Peaks MC),or out of hours GP service. In order to facilitate that, there is some guidance available in our further information list. Please help by accessing the right service at the right time. This is especially important in the winter months when the health service is under additional pressure.Thank you

 

 

HGV/PCV Medicals- £99!

We have reduced our price for Heavy Goods Vehicle and Passenger Carrying Vehicle examinations. We believe there are advantages to having your registered medical practice carrying out these medicals as we have full access to your medical record, if there are any queries and we can rapidly arrange any further tests that may become necessary. Please contact reception to arrange an appointment.

Extended practice boundary

We are currently working with the PCT to agree an extended practice boundary, such that those who are already registered with us, but moving slightly out of our area, may remain registered with us, as long as they fall within the extended zone. As per Government regulations, those already living in the extended zone but not currently registered won't be able to register with us. We will publish this once finalised.

Practice Closure

The practice will be closed in the afternoon on the following dates due to staff training, if you require a doctor in an emergency please call 111 or visit the Walk-in-Centre on Broad Lane:

National Diabetes Audit - Diabetic Patients Only

Crystal Peaks Medical Centre are taking part in an important national project about diabetes care and treatment in the NHS. The project is called the National Diabetes Audit (NDA). We will share information about your care and treatment with the NDA but it is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security. The NDA will only receive your NHS Number, DOB and postcode.

If you do not want your information to be used, please contact reception.

Care Quality Commission (CQC)

In April 2014 all primary care providers registered with Care Quality Commission (CQC). This means that GP practices and other primary providers such as Walk-In-Centres are regulated to ensure that all health and adult social care services meet essential standards of quality, this includes protecting their safety and to respect their dignity and rights wherever care is provided.

The practice will from time to time be visited by members of the CQC to inspect the surgery and its services. Inspectors will speak to staff to ensure they are aware of CQC and have an understanding of what is needed. Inspectors may also speak to patients to get their point of view about the practice and the services we offer. In addition inspectors may ask for consent to sit in on a consultation either with a doctor or a nurse.

To download copies of their booklet please go to www.cqc.org.uk

Following our recent CQC visit on 13 April 2016, please follow the below link for our full practice report.
