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

 

New Patient Registration

The Practice welcomes new patients who are residing within our practice area boundary, details of which can be found under Practice Information. Please ask for a registration form or download one here.When you register with us, we will request details of your past medical problems so as to avoid delay whilst we wait for your records to reach us.

Hand written records can take anything up to three months to arrive at the practice. Even in these days of coded computerised medical records, there is as yet no way of transferring the electronic record from practice to practice, which is particularly frustrating.

Register before you need us

Many new patients only register with us when they have a medical problem. We strongly recommend that you register when you move into the Practice area.

Other fit young professionals are rather proud of the fact that they still are registered with the family doctor where their parents live and regard it as a weakness to even consider that they might one day require an urgent appointment! It is much more sensible to plan, so that we can avail ourselves of your full medical record, ready for when we need it. PLEASE NOTE: We need to see evidence of your current home address, such as Council Tax or other utility bill, as well as identity such as birth certificate, passport or driving license.

New patients

At the time of registration, patients are encouraged to see the practice nurse/ health care assistant for a new patient medical. This is a good opportunity to be screened for raised blood pressure, and kidney problems, as well as general health advice. If you are attending for a new patient check with the practice nurse, you may find if more convenient to bring a fresh urine sample with you rather than produce one at the time. The receptionist will happily provide you with a suitable container for this.

If you are on repeat medicines, we would like you to come and see one of the GPs so that they can be set up on our system. It maybe that your Dr can recommend some changes in light of new developments, or that the quantities need adjusting. Some practices have different approaches to prescribing, such as generic rather than proprietary, or the length of esch prescription. We generally issue 2-monthly prescriptions, but this is at the discretion of the Dr and certain medicines, such as controlled drugs, can only be issued for 1 month at a time.
