PATIENTS ATTENDING FOR APPOINTMENTS AT THE PRACTICE

We are still operating a telephone triage appointment system only and patients should only attend the surgery if they have a pre-arranged appointment.  Where patients have been advised to attend the surgery they should follow infection control guidance, use hand sanitiser provided and adhere to social distancing to minimise the risk of Covid-19.

PLEASE WEAR A FACE COVERING IF YOU HAVE TO VISIT THE PRACTICE

Unless advised otherwise by a GP or Clinician, patients who have been asked to attend a Face to Face appointment should bring their own face covering; this can be a face mask or a scarf.  It should be applied before entering the building and worn at all times while in the building and only removed if to do so by a GP or another Clinician during your consultation.

Please do not attend your appointment if you are unwell or you or any member of your household are suffering from symptoms associated with Covid-19, you should contact the surgery by telephone to re-arrange your appointment.

If you need to order your prescription where possible please order on-line, if you do not have on-line access you can contact the surgery to register for this. You can also ask your nominated pharmacy to order your prescription on your behalf. Otherwise contact the surgery by telephone, wherever possible do not visit the surgery.

PATIENT NOTICE

 

PROPOSED MERGER OF ROYTON & CROMPTON FAMILY PRACTICE AND THE PARKS MEDICAL PRACTICE WITHIN ROYTON HEALTH & WELLBEING CENTRE.

We write to advise of the above proposal which will enable expertise and services to be combined providing responsive, high quality general practice care for the benefit our patients.

 

HOW WILL THIS AFFECT ME?

Your registration and access to general practice services will be unaffected and you will still be able to see clinicians from both practices at Royton Health and Wellbeing Centre as you would normally.

 

Patients from both practices would then be registered at the new combined practice known as “Royton & Crompton Family Practice” You would not need to do anything – these changes will happen automatically.

You can do this by filling in the Patient Survey form, this can be obtained by clicking the link below or at Reception, and these can be handed in or emailed to:-

HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE?

  • By asking at reception.
  • Via posters and information in the waiting room
  • Reading the FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions) Sheet which can be obtained by using the link below or collecting from reception

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Following the consultation period, the practices will submit formal application to Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group’s Primary Care Commissioning Committee. You will be informed accordingly of their decision.

 

IN CONCLUSION
