Noticeboard

2015 MORI Poll

Thank you for your feedback on the way our surgery works. We are delighted to say we are once again rated very highly against the whole of West Yorkshire and indeed the UK. Many thanks from all of us here for helping us to work so well together.

Practice Performance

We are pleased to announce that once again we have achieved maximum points in the 2014 Quality and Outcomes framework which assesses how we manage most of the major chronic conditions.
 
Thank you to all the staff and patients who helped us perform so well. We will keep up the good work. If you do have any suggestions as to how we could improve our service then please let us know, we are always happy to listen.
 

Automated Arrival

We now have an automated check in system. On arrival you can register yourself as arrived using the touch screen on the right before reception. When your appointment is due your name will appear on the large screen in the waiting room. If you would prefer to use the traditional method of speaking to a receptionist this is still available. 

Missed Appointments

Whilst we are generally able to offer you an appointment with the doctor of your choice either on the day or the following day we are dependant on patients attending their appointments. We are increasingly finding a small minority of patients are not attending their appointments. Last month the doctors had a total of 4 hours and 40 minutes of missed appointments. We could have used that to see another 28 patients. Sister Bailey also had a total of 32 missed appointments. If you are not able to attend then please let us know as soon as possible so that your appointment may be given to another patient. 

Online Services

We now offer online access to some of our services including making and cancelling appointments, prescription requests, and updating your medical records. To use this service you will need a username and password. To protect the confidentiality of your medical record the username and password can only be given to you in person from reception. Please speak to reception if you would like to use this service.

PALS (Patient Advice and Liaison Service)

PALS

The NHS employs over a million staff in thousands of locations. It is a large and complex organisation providing a broad range of services. It is not surprising that sometimes you or a loved one may feel bewildered or concerned when using the NHS. And this can be at times when you are feeling at your most vulnerable and anxious.

 

So, what should you do if you want on the spot help when using the health service? The NHS expects all members of staff to listen and respond to you to the best of their ability. However sometimes, you may wish to talk to someone employed especially to help you. The Patient Advice and Liaison Service, known as PALS, has been introduced to ensure that the NHS listens to patients, their relatives, carers and friends, and answers their questions and resolves their concerns as quickly as possible.

PALS also helps the NHS to improve services by listening to what matters to patients and their loved ones and making changes, when appropriate.


What does PALS do?

In particular, PALS will:

  • Provide you with information about the NHS and help you with any other health-related enquiry
  • Help resolve concerns or problems when you are using the NHS
  • Provide information about the NHS complaints procedure and how to get independent help if you decide you may want to make a complaint
  • Provide you with information and help introduce you to agencies and support groups outside the NHS
  • Inform you about how you can get more involved in your own healthcare and the NHS locally
  • Improve the NHS by listening to your concerns, suggestions and experiences and ensuring that people who design and manage services are aware of the issues you raise
  • Provide an early warning system for NHS Trusts and monitoring bodies by identifying problems or gaps in services and reporting them.
