STAXTON SURGERY AND PRESCRIPTION COLLECTION UPDATE 


We have noted the uptake for the Staxton clinic appointments has declined and we have thought about how we could serve our patients better. We noticed an increased demand for urgent appointments for problems that could be treated excellently by a nurse practitioner.


 From 4th September our new nurse practitioner, Theresa, will start and will be available 3 days per week, offering 'immediate' (same day) appointments.


We feel the appointments are best offered in the Sherburn and Rillington practice premises as they are much better equipped than the Staxton Village Hall. We are therefore finishing the Staxton Village Hall clinics from July 2017, meaning the last clinic will be held on Tuesday 27th June.


 The current prescription service which currently runs from Pat Pickard’s home in Staxton will cease from Wednesday 28th June – any prescriptions not collected from Pats after this date will be returned to the Practice for collection. As an alternative the practice does offer a prescription delivery service for all our patients, this will continue where needed to deliver prescriptions to patient's houses by our delivery driver. This requires you to be at home to sign for the prescription on the delivery day. We offer this service on a Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Wednesday evenings


Please ask at dispensary for further information and to be added to the delivery service.


We trust we will improve our service to our patients this way.


We would like thank Pat Pickard for all those years that she has assisted us out of the goodness of her heart with the Staxton clinics and prescription collection service.


 

Care Data

your care dataInformation about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
