Noticeboard

We are terribly sorry and disappointed to have had to cancel our planned flu clinic for the 50-64year olds this Wednesday 25th. We have the vaccine and staff ready and organised for your appointments. NHS England however, have refused permission to allow clinics to be run before 1st December, for contractual reasons.

We have taken this as high as we can as we feel we / our patients are being penalised for efficiency.

We can only apologise and we have rebooked you all- texts sent. Please only contact reception if the new appointment isn’t suitable.

FLU VACCINE:  As you are aware this year the influenza vaccine is being made available to all patients aged between 50 and 64 years old. We have now received our vaccine stocks for this cohort and are able to offer appointments. We will be running clinics on the next Wednesday morning, 2nd December, and Thursday 10th December at our Pitstone branch. If you are registered please book via our online access https://www.patientaccess.com/ or call your surgery (Eds 01525220333 or Pits 01525223211) only between the following times Tues - Fri 10-12 or Mon 11-12 to book an appointment

Training Practice

The practice is approved for training of general practitioners. Fully qualified doctors spend up to a year with us to complete their training. By the time they come to us they have already spent several years in hospital medicine.

In our practice, we accomodate the following levels of Doctors in Training:

  • F2: Fully qualified doctor with at least one year experience of working in hospital.
  • ST1: Fully qualified doctor in their first year of GP training.
  • ST3: Fully qualified doctor in their final year of GP training.

Occasionally you may be asked if you are willing to have your consultation videotaped. This is used to help doctors to assess and improve their consultation skills and their ability to talk to patients. No intimate examinations will be recorded and the camera will be turned off immediately if you are unhappy at any stage.

If you agree to the recording of your consultation you will be asked to sign a consent form before and after you have seen the doctor. The videotape is subject to the same degree of confidentiality as patient records. The tape will be used for teaching consultation techniques and for examining training doctors in communications skills. If the tape is to be viewed by other doctors outside the practice the viewers will be asked to give a written undertaking to maintain confidentiality.

Reception

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
