Noticeboard

From December 2018, the only Gluten Free products to be prescribed on the NHS are Bread (includes rolls and part baked bread) and Mixes (does not include flour).

This is in response to the NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) and NHS England public consultation.

Gluten free products are now more widely available from shops and supermarkets for you to purchase instead.

Our next Carers Coffee afternoon is on Thursday 13th December at 2pm at Ramsbury Surgery - please contact the Surgery if you are interested in coming along.  Please note this is open to anyone who cares for someone on a regular basis - please see our section below on "Do you care for someone?"

FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST

We welcome patient feedback.  Please click on the Friends and Family Survey link on the right hand side under Have your say.  We are trialling sending out text messages with links to this survey - we would really appreciate your time to complete this questionnaire - it only takes a few seconds to complete and submit.

Friends and Family Tests are still available to complete online or you can leave feedback in the Surgery.  We are currently reviewing data from recent months and will action any feedback received.  This is an ongoing feedback resource - please continue to communicate with us through this service.

DEMENTIA SCREENING

You may have read about a recent NHS proposal for practices to invite patients over 60 for Dementia Screening.  Having looked at the evidence and potential benefits and harms to patients, the Partners have decided NOT to take part in this initiative.

As a Practice, we would encourage any patient who is concerned about their memory to consult their Doctor in the usual way for assessment.

The Doctors will automatically test patients who are at risk of memory decline as part of good medical care.  As a Practice, we do not intend to call patients in specifically for a memory assessment alone.

If you have concerns about your (or a relative's) memory, please do not hesitate to discuss it with your Doctor at a routine appointment.

Transport to the Surgery - please remember we utilise the Ramsbury Community Bus on a Tuesday and Thursday morning for transporting our patients to and from the Surgery (from designated pickup points).  This new minibus has a disabled access ramp and provides a service for any patient without transport.  Please ask our Receptionists for further information if you feel this service would be beneficial to your or your family.  

Don't forget you are able to register for online access to book appointments, order repeat medication and view your medical summary.  Please ask at Reception for a request form - please note you will need to provide ID to process your request.
