SURGERY NEWS

Half Day Closing

The Surgery will be closed for Staff training and development on Wednesday 22nd March 2017 from 2pm until 5pm.

We will be open as usual between 8.30am - 1pm and from 5pm - 6.30pm.

If you need to seek advice from the surgery, you can contact us in the usual way on 01749 840233 and your call will be diverted to another GP practice who will triage your medical need or offer you advice.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this causes.

 


GP in training

We are pleased to welcome Dr Tom Wright to work at our practice. Dr Wright has many years of hospital and GP experience and is coming to work with us for his final year before becoming a fully fledged GP.

He will be with us from 03-08-2016 for 1 year working full time at the surgery.

 

Dr Urike Naumann

Sadly Dr Ulrike Naumann will be leaving the practice on Friday 26th August 2016.

Dr Naumann is leaving to become a partner in another practice in Somerset.

We would like to thank her for the wonderful care she provided to our patients and we wish her all the best in her new practice.

 

Extension Completion

We are please to announce that from Monday 8th August our extension work to the practice will be complete.

The rooms will need to be equipped and furnished but this area of the practice should be in use within the next few weeks.

We would like to thank you all for your patience during this building work and hope that you will be as happy as we are with the extended building and car park.

Francesca Palmer (03-08-2016)

 

Flu season approaching

Just a reminder to all patients that the flu season will soon be upon us. We will be holding flu clinics in September and October for those eligable for immunisation. Date will be published shortly.

 

Extension Update

The surgery extension is coming along nicely and so far it is going to plan.

We are sorry for any noise disruption caused and hope that you understand we are doing our best to keep this to a minimum whilst the works are carried out.

The car park will be closed throughout July due to the work that is required to the existing car park and also the car park extension. This will improve services for the patients vastly in the long term, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience of accessing the surgery during this time.

Disabled toilet downstairs will be out of use for the remainder of the building works. We do have a toilet located in the upstairs of the surgery if you are able to go up the stairs. Alternatively we have placed a temporary disabled toilet at the entrance of the surgery.

If any one has any concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to reception or ask for me.

Francesca Palmer, Practice Manager (18-05-2016)


Accessible information

If any patients require information in another format or which to communicate with the practice in another format, please ask at reception and we are happy to try and provide this for you. Eg, large font, braille, use of portable hearing loop.


Virtual Patient Group

Patients may be aware that we have a patient participation group which meets regularly throughout the year at the surgery. We do understand that many people would not be able to attend this group which is why you may be interested in joining our virtual group.

This group would be contacted via email and would be sent short survey's and asked for opinions on particular matters. This may allow you to participate in your local surgery and give us your views, without having to find the time to attend a meeting. Its something you can access at your convenience and hopefully would only take a few minutes of your time on an adhoc basis.

If you are interested in being a member of this group, please inform our reception team, giving us your name and email address.


Counsellor services available from 9th June at Oakhill Surgery

We have a counsellor starting with us at the surgery who will be coming to us once a week on a Thursday afternoon to hold conselling sessions for our patients. If you are aged 18 and over and feel this service would be helpful to you, please discuss this with your doctor or our practice nurse who would be happy to refer you.


Oakhill Surgery Premises and Car Park Extension starting work Tuesday 29th March 2016

We are pleased to announce that the practice is undergoing work for an extension to the current building and car park. The practice is pleased to say that NHS England have part funded the project which is fantastic news for our patients who will benefit from the work being carried out.

The building work will take approximately 4 months to complete, fininshing in July, but once finished the practice will benefit from:

- A new ground floor consultation room
- An interview room
- A lift to the upstairs consultation room
- An additional 10 spaces added to the current car park

We are confident that our patients will see the benefits to this and it will make it more convenient for patients for access our premises as we know you have long awaited an extension to our car parking facilities. The additional rooms will also allow us to look at expanding the services we offer to our patients.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or noise disturbance caused when visiting the practice and we are grateful for your ongoing support throughout the building work. We will keep you all informed throughout the build of any changes or disruption to services.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Many thanks

Francesca Palmer, Practice Manager (29-03-2016)


GP Average Earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean net earnings (eg. Average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.  This is required in the interests of the greater public accountability recognising GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public.

The average pay for GPs working in  Oakhill in the last financial year was £24,112 before tax and national insurance.  This is for 4 part time GPs and 1 locum GPs (who worked in the practice for more than six months.)

Half Day Closing

Drs.Gillberry and Solman have decided to close the Surgery and the Dispensary for half a day each month to enable us to update our staff with appropriate training and educational support and to look at our current practices and systems.  It is essential that our clinical staff are updated every year in areas such as resuscitation and child protection and this will give us the ideal time for this.  

During the closure there will be an answerphone service with the option of contacting a call handling provider who will have direct contact with a GP.  The Surgery and Dispensary will close at 2pm and re open at 5pm. Thank you for your co-operation and continued support
