Dr Loganathan has moved & Our New Doctor

Sadly Dr Loganathan has moved to a surgery closer to home.  He has been an excellent doctor to his patients for the last 14 years and also a pleasure to work with.  We will miss him greatly and wish him all the best in his next chapter.

Dr Jessica Udia has joined Park Surgery as a Partner from June and will be taking over a majority of Dr Loganathan's patients.  Dr Jessica Udia lives locally, is conscientious, patient focused, very enthusiastic and I'm sure will be an asset to the surgery.

From Monday 15th June it will be required for everyone aged over 3 entering Park Surgery to wear a face covering or mask to reduce the risk of infection to other patients and staff members.  Thank you for your co-operation.

COVID-19 Research Study

At Park Surgery, we are taking part in a research study to help find treatments for COVID19. Here is some information on how you may be able to join this study.

The study is called PRINCIPLE. It is run by the University of Oxford, and is funded by the UK government as a national priority study. The study aims to find treatments that reduce hospital admission and speed recovery for people with symptoms of COVID-19. People included in the study must be aged over 65, or aged 50-64 with underlying health conditions. They will either receive usual care, or usual care plus a study drug. All study drugs are widely used to treat other conditions and have been assessed as being safe for use in this study. As many people as possible who join the study will also be tested for COVID-19.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (a new or worsening continuous cough and/or a high temperature), and have had them for less than 15 days, you may be able to take part in this study.

For more information about the study and signing up, please visit the study website https://sentry.phc.ox.ac.uk/prinscreen/PAS

If you have any questions, or do not have internet access, please call the PRINCIPLE study team on 0800 138 0880.

We are pleased to be supporting this important research, as we urgently need to find effective, early treatments for COVID-19 that can be used in the community.

So, please make contact if you have symptoms of COVID-19 and are aged over 65, or aged 50-64 with underlying health conditions!

Yours Sincerely

Park Surgery

NEW SYSTEM FROM JANUARY 2020 TO ADDRESS APPOINTMENT WAITING TIMES

Letter To Patients

NEW SYSTEM FROM JANUARY 2020 TO ADDRESS APPOINTMENT WAITING TIMES

Dear Patient

We know access to our services has become difficult and following feedback from our recent patient survey we like to introduce some changes to our appointment system from 1st January 2020.

What Will Change?

Doctor Triage – Patients will now be offered a telephone call back from a doctor the same day and the doctor will ask you to come into the surgery on that day if a face to face appointment is needed.

An additional Advanced Nurse Practitioner and a Paramedic have been appointed, increasing the size of the clinical team and the number of appointments available.

A clinical pharmacist has been appointed to deal with medication queries and reviews which will free up some of the GP’s time.

The reception team will continue to receive updates on the care navigation training they have undertaken to actively signpost patients to other clinicians and services.

How It Will Work

  1. When you call, the receptionist will ask for some information, this is to ensure they arrange the correct next step for you.
  2. Everyone that needs a consultation will be given a call back during that day and triaged by a doctor. All doctors who are in each day will be involved.
  3. When the doctor calls they will listen and discuss what you need and either book you to come and see them that day or an alternative clinician. Or give the necessary advice.

Why Change?

To make sure you get the necessary advice and guidance first time.

To make it easier to speak with one of your preferred GP’s.

To remove the need for the 8 o’clock phone demand.

To improve continuity of care and patient safety.
