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.

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.

Patient Participation Group

commentsThe practice is a member of the National Association for Patient Participation. 

At the Parks Medical Practice we have a Patient Participation Group meeting  every three to six months. These meetings provide patients with the opportunity to bring any issues or enquiries forward to the practice. There will be a chance to speak to members of staff and doctors, who can try to resolve problems within the practice or other health facilities available.  These meetings also provide an opportunity for the practice to inform patients of new services offered within and outside of the practice.

The patient participation group is also involved with the practice fund raising scheme. Monies raised go to local charities, while some goes toward buying medical equipment for the surgery.  We have seasonal raffles and a continuous book sales, (books located in reception area).

We have already raised substantial amount of  monies, and helped so many charities. We have also been able to purchase a blood pressure machines for the practice which will enable us to provide the best care for our patients.  We are currently trying to raise fund for an ECG Machine.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
