Noticeboard

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 Corroon in August 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:

Tuesday 6th November

 

Medicals

Medical examinations for insurance policies, HGV or PSV drivers, elderly drivers, sub-aqua purposes etc, can be arranged by appointment. As these invariably do not come under your doctor's terms of NHS service, a fee will be charged.

New Patient Consultations

Every patient registering with Crystal Peak Medical Centre will have the opportunity of a new patient consultation. The appointment gives you a chance to meet us, have your health checked and bring to light any ongoing medical problems or important past medical history, including continuing your medication. Your appointment may be with your doctor, a practice nurse or the Health Care Assistant.

Well Woman / Cervical Smear Clinic

All women aged 25 - 65, who have ever been sexually active need a regular cervical smear test detect any early changes that might lead to cancer later on. The CCG invites patients on a routine basis for a cervical smear, blood pressure check, urine test and teaching on breast self-awareness. The routine appointments are offered as follows:

  • Women aged 25 - 49 years - once every 3 years
  • Women aged 50 - 65 years - once every 5 years

Children and Teenagers

Health Visitors
Health Visitors are available to monitor the growth and well being of children and to give support and advice to parents on issues such as feeding, development, sleeping and behavioural problems. They are a knowledgable point of contact and can direct you to other services and agencies if appropriate.

Infants and children up to 5yo are seen by appointment in the joint Health Visitor/Dr clinics which are held weekly in the afternoon.
 
Teenagers
We would generally prefer a parent or guardian to attend with a child or teenager. However there are circumstances when a teenager may wish to be seen alone, for confidentiality reasons. Hence we will see those 13 and over unaccompanied, but depending on the problem, they may be asked to re-consult with a parent or guardian


Smoking Cessation

We are committed to helping those who wish to obtain help with smoking cessation.

Our practice policy is based on both the local Sheffield Stop Smoking Service (SSSS) and NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) Guidelines and is updated annually

There are several ways you can get help:

  • Direct self-referral to the Sheffield Stop Smoking Service: 0800 068 4490
  • Make an appointment to see either a Practice Nurse or GP at the practice.We will generally encourage you to obtain behavioural support, as this improves your chances of quitting. However this is NOT an absolute pre-requisite for obtaining smoking cessation aids on prescription, and this depends on personal circumstances
  • Approach your local Pharmacist, where they are part of the accredited SSSS scheme

 

Self Care

Self care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from brushing your teeth, doing some exercise, managing common conditions (like headaches, colds and flu) or living with a long-term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.

As a Self Care Aware practice we are here to help you feel able to look after your own health when it is right for you. So, when you come in for a consultation, the doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants in this practice will talk to you about what you can do to help maintain and improve your health.
