Primary Care Delivering Improved Access for Their Patients

Please read for more information regarding our Improved Access service for evening and weekend appointments.

MONDAY - THURSDAY IMPROVED ACCESS SERVICE
As of Monday 1st October we will be offering additional evening appointments for our patients. These are different to the appointments some surgeries in the South Devon and Torbay CCG area currently offer in the evenings. This is a requirement (known as Improved Access) where practices ensure that across the week Monday-Thursday that a practice in their area is open between 6pm-8pm. To access these appointments please continue to contact your registered practice.

The timetable for evening appointments is detailed below:
Mondays - Teignmouth Medical Group
Tuesdays - Channel View Medical Practice
Wednesdays - Dawlish Community hospital (for Barton Surgery)
Thursdays - Dawlish Community Hospital (for Barton Surgery)

WEEKEND IMPROVED ACCESS SERVICE
As of the weekend commencing Friday 5th October 2018, we will also be offering weekend appointments situated in a central hub location. The hub location for our patients is Cricketfield Surgery Newton Abbot TQ12 2AS. Cricketfield Surgery has been selected as the “weekend hub” as it is considered the most suitably based surgery geographically to serve 290,000 patients in the South Devon and Torbay area.

As of the weekend commencing Friday 5th October 2018 this weekend service will begin to take place. The appointments offered are by pre-booked appointments by contacting your local surgery and booking ahead. Patients will be able to be seen by a healthcare professional during these extended hours, we will be offering appointment’s with a GP, Practice Nurse and Health Care Assistant .

This service is very different to the current out of hour’s service where patients contact 111 in an urgent/acute situation that cannot wait until their practice is open again on the Monday. For any acute illness please still continue to contact 111, this new service is just for pre-booked routine work and is not for acute/urgent/walk in situations.

Please note that as this contract is being delivered at scale across the locality, you will not necessarily be seen by a Clinician known to you from your practice.

Please see our timetable below for the dates and times of our new service:-
Cricketfield Surgery
Cricket Field Road, Newton Abbot, TQ12 2AS

Fridays - 6.00pm—8.00pm
Saturdays - 8.00am—6.00pm
Sundays - 8.00am—2.00pm

Consent:
Please note as this contract is being delivered at scale across the locality, you will not necessarily be seen by a GP, Practice Nurse or HCA known to you from your practice

To ensure that the Clinician you see has full access to your medical records, when you book your appointment the Administrator will ask you to consent to sharing your medical records. Once consent is gained the GP Practice that is hosting the appointment will be able to access your medical records. Once this consent is gained it will remain on your records until you tell us otherwise. It is essential that consent is gained for you to be able to have the appointment. If you feel you do not wish to provide consent than it will not be suitable for you to book the appointment.

Thank for you your co-operation and support and we hope you make full use of this new service.

Parking

FLU INFORMATION 2018-2019

This year the Department of Health has recommended two different influenza vaccines:-
Trivalent for over 65 years in the at risk groups, healthy over 65 years and healthcare workers over 65 years.
Quadrivalent for pregnant ladies, patients aged 18-65 years in the at risk groups and healthcare workers under 65 years.

For children up to 18 years the nasal vaccination still applies.

Eligible patients will be contacted and invited to make an appointment at the main surgery - we are sorry to say that there will be no clinics at the Warren Surgery this year.

Unfortunately due to issues at the supplies company our original delivery schedule has been altered and put back by two weeks. Therefore clinics will commence at the end of September and continue dependant on delivery dates.
