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

Your Data Matters to the NHS

Following the introduction of the new General Data Protection Regulations on 25th May 2018 the NHS introduced the National Data Opt-Out Programme. It is a new service that permits patients to opt out from the use of their confidential patient information for purposes of research and planning.

Further details on this new initiative can be found by following the link below:

Greener Practice Initiative

A group of South Yorkshire General Practitioners recognise that Climate Change is a health issue as it affects the fundamental determinants of health. By working together to mitigate against its effects, we can improve the resilience of people, patients, communities and the health care system. We aim to develop and support win-win initiatives that help our local general practice community to engage in greener practice

Urgent Notice to Patients

 

The Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group has been informed that a patient has been contacted by someone claiming to be from an online pharmacy quoting the Department of Health. The patient was advised that they would be unable to order prescriptions through their normal method and would need to go through them otherwise their medication would be stopped. The patient realised the call was a scam prior to providing personal information or agreeing to any services and terminated the call.

 They advise any individual receiving anything similar to terminate the call and seek advice before agreeing to anything generated from an unsolicited phone call.
