COVID-19

Dear patients

We regret that we have to share this.

Unfortunately, over the last 2 months we have noticed increasing incidences of verbal aggression and disrespect towards staff, both on the phone and at the front door.

We appreciate how difficult life is at the moment and understand the frustration when the phone lines are so busy. We share this frustration.

However, our staff are working exceptionally hard to provide your healthcare needs under very difficult circumstances, which are set to worsen over winter with the 2nd COVID wave.

We are now enforcing a Zero Tolerance policy.
We will end phone calls for verbal aggression and call the police for aggression at the front door.
We endeavour to be kind and courteous to all patients, and we expect the same treatment in return.

We hope you understand that we need to protect our staff through these unprecedented times.
It is by working together as a practice with our patients that we will come through this testing period. 

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.

Dr Gillgrass

It is with tremendous sadness that we have to announce the death of one of our GP Partners, Dr Gillgrass. Kirsty was a remarkably intelligent, industrious and caring individual and colleague who will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with her family and friends, and we would request our patients' understanding at this is difficult time for all staff at Crystal Peaks Medical Centre.

Due to the current COVID situation we are unable to open a condolences book at the surgery. Please send all messages of condolences to the below email address which we will transfer into a book and pass onto her family.

Coronavirus - Latest Guidance

Over the past month we have been working hard to work through the cohorts to vaccinate as many patients as possible. We will then be awaiting confirmation of our next vaccine deliveries. 

All clinics will be at Beighton Medical Centre S20 1BJ. 

Directions for the site are found here: 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h8GkgVklTqOQgf5z2De4N71JstWHrkv_/view?usp=sharing


We will contact eligible patients by text or phone so there is no need to ring reception to book an appointment. Please DO NOT ring to try and arrange a vaccination. We will contact you. There is a strict priority list set by government and we will be following this closely.


There is limited parking and waiting around Beighton Medical Centre so when you attend for a vaccination please don’t arrive early and please leave promptly after the 15 minute observation time that is required after your vaccination.


At the medical centre there will be strict social distancing measures in place. There are no refreshments available and patient toilet facilities will not normally be accessible on site so please be prepared for this.   You may have to que outside prior to your vaccination especially at busy times. The 15 minute observation area is inside in a waiting room and is comfortable.

New Facebook Page

We now have a new temporary Facebook page that will give updates regarding the COVID-19 vaccination rollout. Please follow the page for regular updates.

You can find the page on Facebook by searching @crystalpeaksmedicalcentre

Screening Appointments

We would like to encourage any patients who are due their cervical screening tests to please contact the surgery to book an appointment. We would like to assure patients that when attending the surgery we are doing our upmost to adhere to government guidelines and provide a safe environment for all patients. Please ensure when attending the practice for any reason a face covering is worn.

We would also like to encourage patients to attend any mammogram appointments at the hospital, and to return their colon cancer screening kits when eligible patients (60-74 every two years) receive them.
