‘Stay Well This Winter’

Cold weather doesn't have to go hand in hand with illness. Here are some simple things you can do to help yourself stay well this winter.

Visit the new NHS public website for tips and advice: http://nhsstaywellderbyshire.co.uk/

PRACTICE CLOSED FOR STAFF TRAINING

Please note that the Practice closes early one afternoon each month for staff training.  The next training afternoon is on Wednesday 20 April 2016.  Both surgeries will close at 1.00pm.  If you need to speak to a doctor during this time then you should dial the free NHS telephone number: 111.  However, if you have an emergency situation you should dial 999.

Carer's Clinics

  • We are now holding Carer's Clinics on the first Friday of every month at our Greenhill Surgery

At our Carer's Clinics a Care Support Worker can: Complete carers assessments, oranise personal budgets, create emergency plans, look into funding opportunities, arrange home visits, provide one to one support and offer support and advice to carers, offer respite and help for the person being cared for.

CQC Inspection

We are pleased to confirm that our inspection by the Care Quality Commission on 17 January 2014, was successful in all 5 areas assessed. The report is available on their website: www.cqc.org.uk   

SHARING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU

The NHS may use the data held in general practice about us all, to improve patient care and develop services. You can choose to opt out of sharing your data, if you wish, by letting us know. For more information please see leaflets 2_cd_patient_information_leaflet.pdf and 6_cd-patient-faqs.pdf, or come into the practice to discuss.

NHS 111 Service

From 21st August 2012 the NHS 111 service was introduced in this area.  Therefore if you need urgent medical attention when the surgery is closed you should dial 111 which will connect you to the service, free of charge (from landlines or mobiles).

Patient Group

Our Patient Participation Group continues, and new members are always welcome!  Please see the PPG pages on the right hand side for further information or the PPG noticeboard in the waiting rooms. 

Our next PPG Meeting is being held on Tuesday 7 June 2016 at our Greenhill Surgery at 6pm.

Commissioning

Jessop Medical Practice is one of 57 practices that make up the Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group. One of our GPs, Dr Mott, is heavily involved in this work. Further information is available here.

Opening Times (at both sites)

Monday - Friday:07:30 to 18:30

stethoscope

We have been constantly trying to improve our access and appointment system, and have been bold in our developments. It is difficult to meet the needs and wishes of everyone, especially when we are serving a growing list of patients from two sites, and several of the doctors work part-time.

We have learned from our past systems, including the telephone access we used over winter.

We currently have various options for you, and hope you will choose the most appropriate for your needs.

 

  1. Telephone appointments - all GPs have telephone appointments available to be booked. We can deal with many things over the telephone including medication reviews, sick notes and other admin tasks, and results.
  2. Nurse practitioner appointments - our experienced and able nurse practitioners are trained to deal primarily with acute and minor illnesses, such as urinary and chest infections, many skin problems, and so on. Reception can advise if you are unsure whether this is the best option for you.
  3. Routine GP appointments - these are available to be booked ahead, usually up to 4 to 6 weeks. The more specific your request the longer you may be asked to wait, ie a part time GP at a specific location will be longer to wait for than any GP or at either surgery.
  4. Urgent Appointments - If you feel you need to be seen on the same day the Duty Doctor is likely to call you to discuss first and then, if needed, arrange to see you. You are likely to be asked to travel to a specific surgery as a specific time, so please be flexible in this regard as it allows us to offer as good a service as we can.

 

More routine nursing appointments, such as cervical smears, contraception and health checks can be booked ahead routinely via reception.
