AdviceASAP Campaign

Demand for GP services continues to increase as the population ages. Please help us manage demand for appointments by considering whether you really do need to see a GP or nurse. For example, pharmacists can treat many minor ailments just as effectively. You can find guidance about this on the AdviceASAP website    

"Your Circle"

is a website that gives you access to information, advice and support to help you,

and anyone you know or care for, stay independent, safe and well. It will help you to

find out what’s available in your local community and what you can do for yourself. Click here.

The Friends & Family Test

The Friends & Family Test was introduced for GP Surgeries by the Department of Health on 1/12/2014.

This is a very short questionnaire which we would like you to complete each time you use our service.

The results will be published monthly on the NHS Choices and the NHS England websites.

 

For more information, visit  http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/Pages/nhs-friends-and-family-test.aspx

To complete a Friends & Family questionnaire online in respect of a recent consultation, please click on "Take the Patient Survey" at the bottom of this page.

Thank you.

Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one

The NHS is carrying out work in Bath, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate.  Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all. If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by Freephone, via text message or online. Changes can also be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope

It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do become out of date over time. If we don’t have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.

We may also need to contact you:



    • with test results

    • to invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer, for example

    • to offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella

    • to give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long-term illness.



Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHS can be certain about your details. If you do not respond, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.
