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.

Noticeboard

MERGER

Jessop Medical Practice will be merging with Leabrooks Medical Centre on 1/4/14. Dr Terry Jones and all the staff at Leabrooks will join us at Jessop, and their patients will also become registered with Jessop (unless they choose otherwise).

This is an exciting development for us all and will enable us to develop our services to you, as well as giving the practice resilience. For more information please click here for our PPG newsletter, or here for the letter sent out to Leabrooks' patients.

We will do our very best to minimise any disruption to our service that may occur, and no current services currently offered will be lost.

New Partner

We are delighted to say that Dr Maria Wallis, who has been with us covering Dr Parrott's maternity leave, will be joining us a half-time Partner from 17/3/14. Dr Parrott returns the same week.

CQC Inspection

We are pleased to confirm that we passed our inspection by the Care Quality Commission in all 5 areas they assessed. The report is available on their website, accessed directly from the widget below the photos of the practice.

SHARING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU

The NHS is planning to start using 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 new NHS 111 service was introduced in this area. From this date 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).

GP Registrars

We have welcomed new GP registrars to the practice in August 2013. Two of them, Dr Chung and Dr Ghafoor, have been with us in the past and return for 12 months to complete their GP Training.

Dr Ashby joined us for 4 months from December (until April 2014) as part of their GP training. Welcome all!
