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.


 

Depression Questionnaire and IAPT

It can also be used to make a tentative diagnosis of depression.

Introduction to the North Yorkshire IAPT service

Welcome to the North Yorkshire Improving access to psychological therapies (IAPT) service. We provide talking therapies for people experiencing the following difficulties:

  • depression
  • panic disorder
  • anxiety and worry
  • health anxiety
  • social phobia
  • specific phobias
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

IAPT is a national NHS programme designed to increase the availability of talking therapy treatments recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

It is believed that one in four people experience mental ill health at some point in their lives.

Significant events like bereavement, unemployment, relationship breakdown, traumatic events or even stress at work can lead to difficulties requiring help and support. Problems with low mood and anxiety can develop and make it difficult for us to cope with life’s daily demands.

IAPT seeks to use the least intrusive method of care possible to treat people. This is often called a ‘stepped care mode’ and means that the patient is generally offered a low intensity therapy in the first instance. Examples of low intensity treatment would include computerised cognitive behavioural therapy (cCBT), psycho-educational courses, guided self-help over the phone or face to face.

If low intensity treatments are unsuccessful or inappropriate then patients can be ‘stepped up’ to a high intensity therapy. This often takes the form of one-to-one cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). 

To make sure that the IAPT service is right for you we will first offer you a brief initial assessment. Most are undertaken over the phone, although alternative arrangements can be made if required.  At the end of the assessment we will discuss what help is available within the service.

Where IAPT is not the most suitable service we can sign post you to alternatives where available.
