IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS ADVISORY MESSAGE FOR ALL PATIENTS - PLEASE READ
To help reduce any Coronavirus risks for patients and staff, we have made changes to our appointment booking systems with immediate effect. We will now be doing telephone triage for ALL patients who are requesting new appointments, to reduce the number of people visiting the surgery. When your call is answered, our Care Navigators will take some basic details and add you to a telephone call back list. You will be called back by a clinician who will assess your need for a face to face appointment, and book you in if needed. We are also switching the online booking system back on for telephone consultation appointments only.
Please note that we encourage appointments to be booked via the telephone or online system.
For appointments booked for today or Monday 16th March please note you will receive a text message or telephone call accordingly. If you have an appointment for Saturday 14th March please attend as normal unless you have been advised otherwise or have the symptoms outlined below.
We also offer an e-consultation service which can be accessed via https://www.withernseadoctors.co.uk/index.aspx
Please note due the expected increase in volume your waiting time may be longer than currently advertised which is a response within 24 hours, if you are wanting advice sooner then please telephone the surgery.
Dispensary will be open as normal however, please DO NOT ATTEND if you have a high temperature/fever or any cough, flu or respiratory symptoms please send a nominated person to collect on your behalf.
If you are worried you may be affected by Coronavirus, please visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or call NHS 111 for further advice. Further information can be found at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Long Term Conditions

LONG TERM CONDITIONS CLINIC

 

There are a large number of our patients who have two or more long term conditions.

 

These include:

    • High blood pressur
    • Heart diseas
    • Heart failur
    • Stroke/TI
    • Dementia

To help these patients we will run 'Long Term Conditions Clinics'.

 

Any patient with two or more of these conditions will be invited to the Long Term Conditions Clinic. 

 

The aim of these clinics is that patients will be seen once a year for a full review.  They will have a nurse appointment when all their long term conditions and medication will be reviewed. 

 

Any relevant investigations, ie. blood tests etc will be arranged one month prior to the appointment. All the investigation results will be reviewed by our Pharmacist and a GP prior to your appointment.

 

The clinics will be run by our qualified Nurse prescriber and our LTC Nurse.  Patients will have their health and medication reviewed and will receive a personalised care plan to help them.

 

Please contact our reception staff if you have any queries.

 

Should you have any feedback or suggestions, please feel free to direct these to Cathryn Palmer, Practice Manager.
