PATIENT CONFIDENTIALITY AT RECEPTION

To improve patient confidentiality we have recently purchased a rope barrier and respectfully ask patients to stand back behind the barrier until the person in front of you has been dealt with by reception staff.

NON N.H.S. SERVICES

A detailed list is displayed at reception.  Your G.P. is contracted only for N.H.S. services there will be occasions when certificates etc will be charged for. (see Clinics & Services for further info) or speak to our Practice Manager

ACCESS TARGETS

It is our aim to see all patient's within 48 hours.  To help us acheive this target reception staff will ask you for a short reason for your appointment.  This information will enable us to prioritise our day. If you are not comfortable to provide this information you will not be forced.

ARE YOU A CARER?

The National Health Service provides most health care to most people free of charge, but there are exceptions.

At the moment due to the unprecedented pressures on GP services non-compulsory, non-NHS work, not falling under collaborative arrangements will be declined as shown below:

  • Private Sick Notes - employers should accept the statutory self-certification to cover the first seven days of absence and not waste GP appointments for this purpose.
  • Occupational Health Vaccinations (most commonly Hepatitis B), Medicals and Reports - this is the responsibility of your employer.
  • Passport applications or similar forms which can be done by a range of non-medical professionals.
  • Insurance Medical Examinations - that can be carried out by an independent clinician.
  • Blanket certification for school absence for minor illness that do not require a GP appointment.  In most cases this is a parental responsibility (specific circumstances may apply i.e. when there may be a safeguarding issue)
  • Blanket requests to certify fitness to exercise, whether for local authority or private gymnasia or for any other activity including travel.  (Requests for a medical opinion on fitness are invariably inappropriate as GP's are not in a position to provide one - a simple statement of fact related to medical condition would be appropriate if the practice is happy to provide this service)
