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

 

Urgent Access Clinics in the mornings at Crystal Peaks MC

We are always looking for ways to improve access and have tried a number of initiatives over the past few years.  Having attended a regional workshop on Access, we were encouraged by the experiences of practices that moved from a system of a mix of “book on the day” and “book in advance” (as we have presently), to having an element of “open access”, or “drop in” surgeries.

Changes to ‘Urgent Access’
As of Wednesday 17th April 2013 to obtain an Urgent Access appointment, please ring reception between 8-10am, if you deem that your problem is urgent. You will be given an allotted time to attend. The Dr will endeavour to see you as close to this allotted time as possible. Once all the urgent access appointments are taken, you will be advised to either ring at 2pm for cancellations or may attend the Walk In Centre 
 

Morning surgeries:

Appointments from 08:30 to 10:10 will be “book in advance”

From 10:20 to 11:50 will be “urgent access”

 

Evening surgeries:

Continue to be a mixture of “book in advance” and “book on day”, although the number of book on day will be less than currently.

 

Rules for Urgent Access

  1. Patients must ring reception between 8am - 10am, if you deem your problem is urgent.  You will be given an allotted time to attend. 
  2. Patients cannot choose which Dr they wish to see, but can request male/female (if available) for examinations of an intimate nature
  3. Please be respectful to others and do not bring a “list” of problems to these consultations, as they are not intended for dealing with a long-standing or complex problem, which is better dealt with through a “book in advance” appointment.  You may be asked to book an advance appointment if the problem is not urgent and needs more time. Remember you may ask to book a double “book in advance” appointment if you have several problems you wish to discuss. This will allow the Dr to do their best to help you without inconveniencing others by making them wait longer.
