Reepham & Aylsham Medical Practice

Do you really need an appointment?

 

We are currently seeing a high demand from patients in relation to coughs, colds and sore throats. In many cases these can be treated without seeing a GP.

 

Before approaching the GP surgery we are asking all our patients to consider the following:

 

1. Can I deal with this myself?

2. Have I looked for online help and advice? (NHS Choices)

3. Could my local pharmacist (chemist) help me?

 

 

 

 

AGEWISE Event

NHS Health Check

 

 

What is an NHS Health Check?

 

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

 

How do I get an NHS Health Check?

 

If you are between the age of 40-74 you are eligable for an NHS Health Check every 5 years. You can contact the surgery to book an appointment.

More GP Appointments Released

 

Over the next three months we are working with NHS England to offer extra GP appointments. This is because we know that there are times you want to be able to see a GP at short notice. We also know that over winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses which require more than a pharmacy but don't need emergency treatment.

 

The extra appointments are bookable on the day by ringing the surgery on the usual telephone number.

 

If you haven't yet signed up for GP Online Services simply visit reception with a form of photo ID, we can sign you up there and then. GP Online Services makes it easy to book appointments online, request repeat prescriptions and view some of your medical records. Find out more about this on NHS Choices.

 

If you are not able to attend an appointment you have booked, for whatever reason, please let us know. We can then offer that appointment to someone else that needs it.

Enhanced Summary Care Record

 

 

 

If you would like to ehnance your summary care record please speak to our reception team.

 

Why you need an Enhanced Summary Care Record

 

Most people in England have a basic NHS Summary Care Record which contains key health information about you, however additional information can be added that could be important to your treatment. This is called an Enhanced Summary Care Record.

 

This means that if you have to call an ambulance, contact 111, the Out of Hours service or go to hospital anywhere in England, they will be able to access vital health information about you, which could help them treat you more quickly and effectively.

 

Having an Enhanced Summary Care Record means you don't have to remember all the details of your past care.

 

It is quick, secure and safe for health staff to access your Enhanced Summary Care Record. Access to this information could make a real difference to your care as clinicians will have all the information they need.

 

If you would like more information on this visit our Enhanced Summary Care Records tab.

 

Self Care Campaign

 

 

 

 

A campaign is being launched by the five CCGs in Norfolk and Waveney to encourage patients to self-care and not to ask their doctor for everyday medicines.

 

The change comes after figures showed the local NHS spent £5.7m last year on remedies for minor conditions such as diarrhoea and indigestion, as well as medicines such as paracetamol.

Self Care Campaign

 

 

What is self care?

 

The self care forums definition of self care is: "the actions that individuals take for themselves, on behalf of and with others in order to develop, protect, maintain and improve their health, wellbeing or wellness."

 

Why is self care good for people?

 

In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients, such as those with comorbidities, the very young and elderly, managing long-term conditions and providing new services. Self care empowers people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when necessary.
