Temporary List Closure - Not accepting New Registrations ( posted on Apr 7, 2017 )

The Practice is not taking on new patients at present due to rapid increase in our list size.

 

The GP Partners have agreed not to accept anynew applications to join our list, except those who are from households of existing patients, e.g. newborn babies, returning students, new partners.


Nationally there is an increase in demands on GPs, and this includes our Practice.


In order to maintain the quality and safety of the service we provide to our current patients we have had to make this difficult decision to stop accepting new patients for a period.


We will review this decision on a monthly basis.


In order to find a GP you may try contacting other local practices to see if they may be able to accept you if you reside in  their area. You can visit NHS Choices website www.nhs.net to find all local practices.


If you are unable to find a GP you may contact West Kent CCG Primary Care Team for further advice and assistance on 01622 228393 or email WKCCG.patientallocations@nhs.net or write to them at: Primary Care Booking Service, Johnstone Room, Maidstone Hospital, Hermitage Lane, Maidstone, ME16 9QQ. They are likely to expect patients to have at least thre 'Unable to Rgister' letters

 

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day to give advice on medical matters.

Prescription Ordering Direct 

Call the NHS Prescription Ordering Direct service (POD) on 01732 375262, it is an easy way for you to order your repeat prescription.

You can call from the comfort of your own home – there’s no need to go into your GP practice or pharmacy.

You’ll also speak to a trained prescription clerk who can discuss your needs and can ensure that you’ll only order medication when you need it – saving the NHS money to spend on other important services.

 This service launched on the 9th January 2017 and is available Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) from 8am to 4 pm for patients at the following surgeries:

  • St Andrews Medical Centre (St Andrews Court, Southborough, Tunbridge Wells TN4 0LZ) 
  • Aylesford Medical Centre (Admiral Moore Dr, Aylesford ME20 7SE)

Further surgeries will offer this service in due course and times will be extended so keep checking here for updates. 

 Why use this new service?

You can order repeat prescription medication by making just one phone call. You will be speaking to a dedicated person who will have the time to answer any repeat prescription queries, will ask you how you are getting on with your medication and will alert you if a medical review is needed.

Who will you be talking to?

The POD will be staffed by dedicated, experienced and fully trained prescribing clerks and clinical members of the Medicines Optimisation team at the NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group. They will have access to all repeat prescription records and immediate access to your GP practice should the need arise. This is all private and confidential and your personal information is secure.

Why are we offering this new service?

We want to ensure that patients are receiving the correct quantity of medication that they need at a time. We also hope to reduce the amount of wasted prescription medicines, this amounts to millions of pounds each year, so that this money can be better spent on improving healthcare. 

Already use a pharmacy to order your repeat medication?

You can continue to use the same pharmacy. If your pharmacy manages your repeat medication on your behalf, and orders prescriptions from your GP this agreement will no longer be valid, your pharmacy should be aware of this change .

If you have a current arrangement with a pharmacy to deliver your prescription then this will still continue.

Once you have made the telephone call your prescription will be authorised by your usual GP and will then be available from your nominated pharmacy in the time frame normally specified by your practice (usually 48 hours) for collection or delivery

NHS England require that the Net Earnings of Doctors engaged in the Practice is publicised and the required disclosure is shown below. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time Doctors spend working in the Practice and should not be used for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other Practices.

 

The average pay for GPs working at Aylesford Medical Centre in the last financial year was £82,525 before Tax and National Insurance. This is for three full time GPs and 1 part time GP who worked in the Practice for more than six months.
