NHS 111 Online ( posted on Aug 13, 2018 )

NHS 111 ONLINE

 

Across Kent, Medway, Surrey and Sussex, we are beginning the phased roll-out of the new NHS111 online website. This will offer people advice and information on where to access the right care for them, based on their clinical needs and location.

 

 

The website is being rolled out by NHS Digital over three phases. The first phase went live on Tuesday 31 July 2018. This website is still in its infancy, which is why it is not being proactively promoted to the public until phases two and three, which we hope to implement later in the year.

 

However the website is searchable and accessible. The questions are similar to that used by the 111 telephony service, and use the same clinical governance.

We want to ensure that you are aware of this new online service. This is because you may have patients coming into your surgery saying they have been advised to see a GP after using NHS 111 online, as during this first phase the website will:

  • Answer questions about symptoms
  • Give advice on what to do and, if necessary, where to go – and this may be to see a GP.

We will be keeping you informed on the next phases of the roll-out over the next few months.

Had a recent blood test or urine test? Want to know the result(s)? ( posted on Aug 7, 2018 )

Had a recent blood test or urine test? Want to know the result(s)?


 

Please allow 5 working days before calling 01622 885880, after 2pm, to obtain your test results or accessing them online via Patient Access (please ask reception for log in details).

It is your responsability to obtain your test result(s). You will only be contacted if the result(s) are significantly abnormal and if the Doctor has instructed the receptionists to contact you. 

 

 

Thank you for your co-operation and assistance.

Telephone Triage System ( posted on Aug 7, 2018 )

Telephone Triage System

 

Following several comments from patients regarding problems getting through to the surgery on the telephone, we have been in touch with our telephone provider and are looking into ways to upgrade the system. This will include information about how many callers are waiting and your position in the queue.  

 

We also have a second telephone line which, unfortunately, during particularly busy periods, cuts off after a fixed time, giving the impression staff members are hanging up. This problem is also being rectified.  

 

 

The telephone company have reported that some of these changes will take a few weeks to come into effect, so please bear with us during this time. If your call is not urgent, please try to telephone after 2pm when the lines are less busy.

Nurse Practitioner ( posted on Apr 12, 2018 )

From Monday, 4th of June, we will be having a Nurse Practitioner, Kate, joining our team. Kate is an experinced Nurse Practitioner who is able to diagnose, prescribe and refer patients the same as doctors can.

 

New Appointment System ( posted on Apr 12, 2018 )

NEW APPOINTMENT SYSTEM

 

The surgery appointment system will be changing from Monday, 4th June, in response to feedback from patients.

 

Pre-bookable morning and afternoon appointments for the doctors and nurse Practitioner will be available up to 2 weeks in advance.

 

Patients requiring urgent same-day appointments should call the surgery after 8am and they will be allocated a telephone call.

 

There will no longer be a morning walk-in clinic.

 

In order for the receptionists to allocate the most appropriate appointment for your needs, the doctors have instructed them to request a brief reason for the appointment. Please be assured they are bound by the same duty of confidentiality as the doctors.

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

Temporary List Closure - Not accepting New Registrations

 

 

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 e-mail 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 3 'Unable to Rgister' letters.

 

 

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

Publication of GP Net Earnings ( posted on Mar 31, 2016 )

Publication of GP Net Earnings

 

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 £77,323.21before 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.
