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

 

Which service is best for me?

Which Service is Best for me?

 

NHS Sheffield tell us that many problems seen in Accident and Emergency (Casualty) could be better dealt with somewhere else. Sometimes this can mean that people who are seriously ill are not being seen quickly enough because they are being delayed by others with non-urgent problems.  These non-urgent problems still need sorting out, but a busy Accident and Emergency department is often not the right place for this.

 

A guide to choosing the right NHS Service if you become ill:-

 

Self-Care (Hangover, grazed knee, sore throat, cough) – A lot of illnesses or symptoms can be treated in your home by using a well stocked medicine cabinet and by getting plenty of rest.  Self care is the best choice to treat very minor illnesses and injuries.

 

Pharmacist (Diarrhoea, runny nose, painful cough, headache) – Your local pharmacist can give you advice on common illnesses and the medicines you need to treat them.  To find your nearest pharmacy call NHS Direct: 0845 4647 or visit www.nhs.uk/servicedirectories

 

GP (Unwell, vomiting, ear pain, backache) – Make an appointment to see a GP when you have an illness or injury that will not go away. Tel: 0114 2510040

 

NHS Direct (Unsure, confused, need help?) – Contact NHS Direct if you are ill and have any questions about health.  Tel: 0845 4647 http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/

 

NHS Walk-in-Services (Cuts, Strains, Rashes, Sprains) – Walk-in Services treat minor illnesses and injuries that do not need a visit to A&E.  Sheffield’s walk-in services are open 365 days a year.  For more information visit: www.sheffield.nhs.uk/walk-in

 

A&E or 999 (Choking, Chest Pain, Severe Bleeding, Blacking Out) – Accident and Emergency departments provide immediate emergency care for people who show the symptoms of serious illness or are badly injured.  If you telephone 999 and tell the operator that there is a medical emergency, a response vehicle may be sent to your location.   Emergency services are very busy.  They should only be used in

very serious or life threatening situations. 

 

An emergency is a situation where someone is experiencing a loss of consciousness, heavy bleeding, suspected broken bones, chest pain, breathing difficulties, an overdose, has swallowed something harmful, poisoning or has a deep wound.

 

BEFORE YOU GO TO A&E THINK!

 

Is this an emergency/accident?

Can I wait and see my GP?

Could another GP help me?

Would an alternative service be better and quicker
