Did not Attend Appointments!

Have you been struggling to book an appointment?!

Since the start of Summer (1st June 2018) we’ve had over 160 patients who have not attended their appointments,

with no reason given!

This equates to just over 70 Doctors appointments = over 5 full Doctors Surgeries

and over 95 Nurse appointments = 5 Nurse Surgeries

These appointments could have been offered to other patients who needed to see a Doctor or a Nurse BUT couldn’t get an appointment.

Help us to avoid this by letting reception know in advance whether you are unable to make your appointment and please don’t forget if you have an appointment.

Can`t make it? Cancel it!

Pharmacy First

Your local pharmacy is the place to go to get any prescription medicines and clinical advice for minor health concerns. But they do a lot more than that.

As well as helping with common illnesses – like sore throats, coughs, colds, tummy troubles and aches and pains – pharmacy teams can also help with stopping smoking, cutting down on alcohol, advice on safe sex and emergency contraception.

Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends. You don’t need an appointment – you can just walk in. Find your nearest Pharmacy here.

Statistics suggest that about 1 in 10 people who fall become afraid to leave their homes (2010). This Rural Living programme aims to improve tge strength and balance of those who need it, reducing the risk of falling.

NEW DISPENSARY OPENING TIMES

icon

From 1st April 2018 the Dispensary will be open as follows:-

9am – 1pm & 2pm – 6.30pm

This will allow protected time for staff working in the dispensary to deal with repeat prescription orders, controlled drugs and legal requirements.

Any medication already dispensed (other than controlled drugs) will be available for collection from reception outside of these hours.

We hope that this will not cause you any inconvenience and look forward to your continued support of our dispensary services.

Cheshire & Merseyside Sustainability and Transformation Plan

The draft Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) for Cheshire and Merseyside sets out how the health and care system can remain fit for the future and respond successfully to the growing demands that are being placed on it, alongside ambitious ideas to improve the health of people living and working in the region.

The document sets out a shared core purpose to ensure that the people of Merseyside and Cheshire become healthier than they are now and can continue to have access to safe, good quality and sustainable services.

The plan represents the thoughts and ambitions of more than 30 different organisations serving a population of over 2.5 million people.

The next stage will refine the ideas further through engagement with local communities, the NHS workforce and other stakeholders such as local councils and the voluntary sector.
