Patient Reference Group

Patients have a key role to play in both supporting the development of general practice and in ensuring the sustainability of the NHS as a whole. A way of achieving this is includes strengthening patients' input into the organisation and delivery of their general practice services through the developement of Patient Reference Groups.  We would like to start a new group at the practice called a 'Patient Participation Group'. The aim of the group is to give patients, clinician's and staff a chance to share positive, realistic ideas for improvement's at the practice. It could lead to involvement such as

  • Promoting health in adults
  • Promoting health in children
  • Seasonal health such as the Flu campaign
  • Liaising with citizens advise
  • Being a contact for Patient suggestions

The list is not exhaustive and is still open to development. From the volunteers, a representative number of patients will be chosen to join the group and will meet 2 or 3 times a year. This group is not a forum for complaints. Members will have to take a balanced view of needs and it does not give any preferential entitlement at the practice.

 

On Line Prescribing

New Collegiate Medical Centre use's the Electronic Prescription Service

The Electronic Prescription Service allows your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.

To sign up, you need to speak to your preferred pharmacy and complete a form to confirm that they can receive your prescription directly. Once you have signed up, your chosen pharmacy will receive your prescription electronically and you will not have to pick up your paper prescriptions from us.

For more information, please go electronic-prescription-service, pick up a leaflet from reception or speak to your pharmacist

 

Video appointments

Our staff now have all the equipment needed to offer virtual consultations, webcams and headsets etc

All the patients needs is access to a smart phone

This option has been provided throughout the Coronavirus outbreak but we think it will make our service more accessible to patients who struggle to make time for their medical needs, for example, full time workers and people who struggle to leave the house.

 

 

Sadly Dr Whiting will be retiring from the surgery on 30.6.2020. We thank him for all his hard work over the last 33years and wish him a long and happy retirement.

 

We would has like to welcome back Dr Zafar from maternity leave. She has been missed.
