INFORMATION ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

**There is now a dedicated Covid-19 line. Please call 119 to organise testing and for further information**

Claverley Surgery would like to remind you that if you have a cough or fever DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY!

Due to the current outbreak we will be accepting repeat prescription requests via our email address claverley.medical@nhs.net. You can also post requests through our letter box if you wish.

Online booking of appointments have been suspended for the foreseeable future.

We are doing our bit to try and protect our most vulnerable patients.

SURGERY CLOSURES

The surgery is closed on Monday 25th May (BANK HOLIDAY).  

Claverley surgery is now taking part in "GP First Extended Access". We now offer appointments outside of our usual opening hours. We are working alongside other surgeries in the surrounding areas that our patients can attend with a pre-booked appointment. See extended access tab on the right of the webpage for more details.

 

DNA's (did not attend)

A total of 33 appointments were wasted in February through patients failing to attend their booked appointments. If you know you cannot attend your appointment please ring up to cancel it.

For test results please  phone the surgery after 2pm.

For medication queries please phone after 11am.

28 Day Repeat Prescribing

A 28 day repeat prescribing interval is recognised by the NHS as making the best possible balance between patient convenience, good medical practice and minimal drug wastage. Prescribing for shorter periods has been widely promoted across England. Research by the National Audit Office in 2007 has shown home and excess medicine stock values for patients prescribed a 28 day supply of a medicine to be one third less than those for patients receiving prescriptions to cover 56 days. In addition, a Bradford University Study concluded that the NHS cost of prescriptions issued for 56 days’ supply is greater than those for 28 days.

 

From 1st April 2020 the NHS Prescription Charge is £9.15

 

The NHS prescription charge is a contribution to the NHS; it is not a payment to the surgery or its dispensary and is not related to the cost of your medicines(s).

If you need 4 or more prescriptions in three months or 13 or more prescriptions a year, you could save money with a Prescription Prepayment Certificate.

We actively encourage our patients to consider this as it covers any prescription during this period of time, eg one off antibiotic prescriptions or creams etc. in addition to any regular repeat prescriptions.

Ask a member of the dispensary team for more details or visit www.nhs.uk/healthcosts

 

Average GP Earnings for 2014-2015

 

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

 

The average pay for GPs working at Claverley Medical Practice in the last financial year was £53,905 before tax and National Insurance.

 

This is for 1 full time GP, 3 part time GPs and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.

 

NAMED GP   

All of our patients now have an allocated NAMED GP.  This is a national requirement from NHS England. Dr Peter Jones is the named GP for all patients registered with Claverley & Pattingham Surgery. Patients can still choose which GP they see at the surgery.

 The Practice now provides FREE SMS Text message reminders for appointments - please check that we have your correct mobile number (We do not send any patient identifiable information)

111 GP OUT OF HOURS

The goverment has launched an out of hours service.

Appointments

baby_district_nurseAppointments can be made personally or by telephoning Claverley (01746) 710223 during surgery hours. It would be most helpful if you could arrive promptly for your appointment and if you are unable to attend please cancel as early as possible.

Unfortunately, surgeries do sometimes run late but we will do our best to avoid this and keep you informed of the situation. You can see either doctor in the practice, but it is preferable to see one doctor during each period of illness. Urgent cases will be seen the same day, though not necessarily by your usual doctor.

We would politely ask patients to adhere to their allotted appointment time (10 minutes) as this affects other patients waiting their turn. If you know you may want a longer appointment, please tell the receptionist at the time of booking that you wish to book a double appointment.

DNAs (Did not attend)

Each week a considerable number of appointments are lost through DNAs. If you are unable to keep an appointment please telephone as soon as possible to cancel. This enables another patient the opportunity of seeing the doctor or nurse.

Telephone Advice

We do try to avoid disturbing the clinicians with telephone calls during surgery whenever possible. If you wish to speak to a doctor or a nurse, please discuss this with the receptionist, who will assist you in booking an appropriate telephone consultation.
