EMERGENCIES

If you need urgent medical advice during practice opening hours, please phone the surgery on 01623 550254.

If you need to see a doctor urgently when we are closed, please phone 111.  An operator will take some details and pass you through to our local out of hours GP service.

APPOINTMENTS

You DO NOT NEED TO CALL AT 8 o'clock in the morning for routine appointments.  If your problem is urgent, please call reception as early as you are able to and you will be seen in our Urgent Care Clinic.  Routine appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.  Some appointments can be booked online - please speak to reception to obtain a username and password.

CANCELLING AN APPOINTMENT

If you no longer need your appointment, it helps us and other patients if you can cancel your appointment as soon as possible.  This way, we can make sure the appointment can be offered to another patient.  You can cancel at reception, by telephone (01623 550254) or online.

STAFF TRAINING

The practice will be closed on the 3rd Wednesday of the month for essential staff training.

 

                  Patient Participation Group

The Medical Centre established its Patients Participation Group (known as HIP – Huthwaite Involving Patients), in May 2009 at the old New Street Surgery. There were only four members when we started, but since then our membership has grown steadily to ten. We meet with the practice representatives once a month (normally on the third Wednesday evening of every month), for approximately one hour.

 

We have Terms of Reference that identify our purpose, but it’s mainly about working alongside the practice staff to help them deliver the best level of patient service possible. You may have seen us providing support at the flu clinics, or at the Brierley Park fun days, but we’ve also been involved in assisting with events providing help and support on medical conditions such as fibromyalgia and diabetes.

 

The NHS is placing increasing importance on patient participation and patient education within the development of health provision in future years and, as such, it is likely that the PPG will become more involved with decisions concerning practice development.

 

All of the members of the HIP group give up a little bit of their time because we appreciate the service that we receive from the practice and want it to become better still.

 

If you share this sentiment then we’d love to meet you - Lorraine Walton has the details of our dates and times of meetings, so please come along to one and see if you’d like to join us.

 

 

Regards,

Steve Wright – Chair of HIP
