Noticeboard

CORONAVIRUS

Due to the lockdown, our door is closed and you can only be invited for an appointment by GP or nurse after being screened by triage first - use eConsult to request an appointment.

STAY ALERT TO STAY SAFE


Everyone must stay alert to help to the spread of coronavirus. Failure to do so puts lives at risk unnecessarily.


With governments easing of restrictions, you can now:

  • form a 'support bubble'* with one other household if you are in a household where there is only one adult
  • attend your place of worship for individual prayer
  • visit any type of shop and some outdoor attractions such as zoos
  • meet outdoors with up to six people from different households, as long as social distancing is observed and you stay at least two metres away from anyone outside of your household or support bubble


* If you or anyone from within your household or support bubble begins showing coronavorus symptoms, you must all stay at home. If you or a member of your support is contacted by the test and trace programme that individual must stay at home; if that individual starts showing symptoms, everyone i the support bubble must isolate.


For more information on meeting people you do not live with, click here.


As before, you must still:

  • stay at least two metres (three steps) away from anyone you don't live with/outside of your support bubble when outside your home
  • wash your hands with soap and water often, for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitizer gel if soap and water are unavailable
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands!) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bins immediately and wash your hands afterwards 
  • wear a something that covers your nose and mouth when it's hard to keep away from people, such as in the shops or on public transport

DO NOT GO TO YOUR GP SURGERY, HOSPITAL OR PHARMACY IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS.

Patient Participation Group

The New Surgery believes that patient experience and engagement should be a key driver of the services we provide now and those that we would wish to provide in the future.

The practice has had a Patient Participation Group (PPG) since 2007 and the practice staff meet with the group bi-monthly to gather their experiences and views and to discuss the development of the services that we provide. The group also helps to develop, inform and review the annual patient Survey. They work with the practice to ensure that the priorities and aspirations highlighted by our patient population are addressed. They are also involved in any big decisions that the practice takes and provide valuable feedback from other patients in the locality. They also host some of our annual flu clinics providing light refreshments. More recently we have supported the annual MacMillan Coffee Mornings with great success and we are hoping to continue to do so.

In April 2010, though our group was small and beautiful we wanted it to be truly representative of the practice population and like many other practices, developed a Patient Reference Group (PRG) which now has over 150 members. The (PRG) submit their views and comments via email mostly, though we are able to engage a small number of patients over the telephone or by post. The main PPG still meets bi-monthly and though membership is still quite small we incorporate all of the information, views, comments, suggestions and other information received from the wider group, into our meetings.

There is always room for additional members to join our PRG and if you would be interested in joining please contact the practice reception team on 01277 218393 or email patientexperience.newsurgery@nhs.net, giving your name and contact details and we will ensure you are included in all future communications.
