Pennine Extended Access 2019/2020

NEW PATIENTS WELCOME!  We are registering new patients.  If you live out of our catchment area you may still be able to register as an Out of Area Patient if you do not expect to need home visits.  Out of Area patients need to call 111 to arrange visits as they are not provided by the practice. 

MAGAZINES -  REALLY SHORT OF THESE AGAIN (Aug 19)!!   If you have anything suitable that you are willing to donate please drop them off for us.  Thank you!

OUT OF HOURS - CALL 111 if you need medical advice or assistance anytime the practice is closed. All calls are free to this number.  CALL 999 immediately if the problem may be life threatening at anytime.

PRIVATE WORK - Please note that anything that is not NHS contracted work can take up to four weeks to complete as the doctors must give priority to all NHS work.  This includes some forms that are required for the Council.  Fees are charged where appropriate for private work.   If you do need something done please contact the Patient Services team to find about about the charges.  A GP appointment is NOT needed if you need to have forms or reports done.   Charges can be paid by card over the phone and must be paid before the work is undertaken.


CLICK ON LOGO FOR ONLINE SERVICES :

You can BOOK & CANCEL APPOINTMENTS or ORDER REPEAT MEDICATION using the online system -  saving you time.

The online system can be downloaded as an APP to any Smart phone.

The practice releases GP and some Practitioner (NOT nurse) appointments to the online system daily for a variety of future dates. Some appointments will also become available early in the day (before 8am) so that anyone with an acute problem can book to be seen urgently without having to phone the surgery.

To get a login and password please ask the Patient Services staff who can arrange that for you.

Coronavirus - Advice for Patients 

Due to the coronavirus, patients calling to book appointments with flu-type symptoms may be asked if they have been abroad/China. Primary care practices are asked to identify possible cases, isolate them immediately and seek specialist advice.

The Department of Health are recommending that all travellers who develop relevant symptoms, however mild, within 14 days of returning from mainland China, should self-isolate at home immediately and call NHS 111.

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Community Transport booking for patients and drivers wanted

At our recent Patient Participation Group, it was highlighted that some patients may find it difficult to attend the surgery for an appointment due to mobility or other issues.  This is a fantastic service that is offered by volunteers who will collect patients for appointments and return, for the charge of 45p per mile to cover expenses.   

They are also looking for volunteer drivers so if you have some time to spare and are interested in joining, please click the link below for further information.

Wasted Appointments January 2020

It is very unfair to miss appointments, other patients can use any appointment that is cancelled even at short notice so PLEASE CANCEL if you are unable to keep your appointment

151 GP/NP/AP appointments were missed = 22.5 hours wasted

(According to Government data 2013 this equates to a waste of £2,622- One 10 minute GP appointment = £38)

 84 Nurse/HCA appointments were missed = 21 hours nursing time wasted

(According to Government data 2013 this equates to a waste of £728  - 1 nurse hour = £52)

The Boulevard Pharmacy

We hope to make positive changes at the pharmacy as well as providing extra new services including; longer opening hours, speedier prescription turnaround, more flexible delivery service, much better supply chains for hard to get medicines, Travel Clinics etc.  It is early days but we hope that those who use this pharmacy will find the service efficient and professional inline with the aspirations and aims of the Practice.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PARK RUN

The practice has signed up to support our local park run held at Shroggs Park every Saturday morning

Join us in getting fitter and healthier

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 SATURDAY CLINICS

Please note the clinics that run here on a Saturday morning are put on by the Local Network and they access a different clinical system to the practice and staff may not be regular Boulevard staff so we are unable to offer routine services and can only provide the clinic appointments that are pre-booked. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We Are Merged with Horne Street

The systems merge is now complete.   We did have some small teething issues but we are working to ensure they are all resolved they are not expected to have any impact on patient care.

Please note that ALL ADMINISTRATION will now be done centrally at the Boulevard - all appointments will be booked via the Boulevard -  online or by phone 01422 365533, all prescriptions and letters will be done there too.

If you do not have your prescription sent directly to your pharmacy you will be required to collect them from the Boulevard.  You will also be expected to collect forms or any other documents required from the Boulevard too.

Please contact your pharmacy if you wish us to send your prescriptions directly to them electronically to save you coming to collect and they can set this up for you.

I know there will be a few issues as we settle into a new way of working for Horne Street patients and we apologise for any inconvenience but please be assured we will endeavour to ensure we have the resources and appointments in place for all patients to be treated.

We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.  New patients who live in our catchment area are more than welcome to join us!   Sorry - We are NOT currently accepting patient's who live outside our practice area.  This will be reviewed at some point once the merger is completed.  Those patients who are already registered as Out of Area will not be affected.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

Disabled Access

The practice has access for the disabled with all consulting and treatment rooms on two floors along with a patient lift and disabled toilets.  We also have wheelchairs in the surgery for patients to borrow whilst attending to help them get to / from the car park and around the building. Please ask at reception if you would like to use one.
