Patient Online Access Request

 

 * 

Named accountable GP

From 1st April all practices are required under the 2015-16 General Medical Services Contract to allocate a named accountable GP to all practice patients, including children.

The named accountable GP will take the lead responsibility for the co-ordination of services required.

Any member of the practice team will be able to confirm the name of your accountable GP. This does not prevent you from seeing any doctor or nurse of your choice!

If a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they are assigned to, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.

*

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

 

Can all patients please be aware that ONE booked appointment is only ten minutes long.

 

This means that only ONE patient will be seen, and only ONE problem dealt with.

 

This will help everybody to be seen as close to their allotted appointment time as possible.

 

NHS Choices Conditions and Treatments

See the NHS Choices Conditions and Treatments browser for an in-depth description of many common health issues.


Childrens Health

There is a good guide on the NHS website which describes various conditions affecting children.  There is advice on how to diagnose them, how to treat them and if further advice should be consulted.

When Should I Worry?

Having an ill child can be a very scary experience for parents. If you understand more about the illness it can help you to feel more in control. This booklet is for parents (and older children) and deals with common infections in children who are normally healthy.

Fevers

Most symptoms of a fever in young children can be managed at home with infant paracetamol. If the fever is very high, they may have an infection that needs treating with antibiotics.  

 


Head Lice

Head lice are insects that live on the scalp and neck. They may make your head feel itchy. Although head lice may be embarrassing and sometimes uncomfortable, they don't usually cause illness. However, they won't clear up on their own and you need to treat them promptly


Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds (also known as epistaxis) are fairly common, especially in children, and can generally be easily treated.
