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

 

People Experiencing Mental Health Conditions

At Crystal Peaks Medical Centre, we pride ourselves on providing high quality proactive care to our patients experiencing either acute or enduring mental health problems/ conditions.

We liaise closely with our IAPT Team (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) who run clinics throughout the week here at the surgery. Patients with high anxiety levels find it comforting visiting a surgery they are familiar with rather than travelling to an unknown location.

 If you are attending the surgery for a routine appointment and find coming to the surgery a difficult task, please inform reception who will try to book you into the first available or last appointment slot or provide you with a separate room upon arrival if available.

We also find liaising with relatives is very important in dementia care, especially when they are geographically distant; we always log their details on the patient record and involve them whenever appropriate, given appropriate patient consent, keeping them updated on developments. If you feel this would be of benefit to a family member or you care for a person with dementia and would find this service useful, please contact reception who will give you more information on how this can be done.
