Noticeboard

The need to protect patients and staff from Covid-19 (coronavirus) is as important as ever and is a top priority for the practice; particularly as we head into winter.

In addition, the amount of patient requests coming in remains significant. We continue to encourage patients to seek help for their ailments but also ask that patients consider whether the practice is the most appropriate point of care. Before you submit a request do remember that you can order your repeat prescriptions directly through patient access, can get NHS support and advice online to undertake self-help, and for minor illnesses and ailments your local pharmacy team are trained clinical professionals who can provide free advice on the best treatment. If you are ever unsure about where to obtain help, visit 111 online for guidance.   

When accessing the surgery, please remember that we are doing things differently to keep you safe, while making sure that you have access to the care you need. If you have a booked face to face appointment at the practice please ring on the door bell so we can meet and greet you (the door will be closed). This is so we can ensure precautions are taken for you and the healthcare teams safety; and so you can socially distance within the waiting room.

To submit a request or query, we encourage our patients to use our online consultation platform by  clicking on the askmyGP link below. However, if patients would rather call the practice please be prepared to tell our healthcare team about your symptoms or concerns. We will respond in a number of ways, either by online message, by phone, or by video call and we may ask you to come into the surgery. We can assure you that we are dealing with all requests in a safe and timely manner. If you are requested to attend the surgery, please do follow the instructions provided by our staff before arriving.

With great appreciation from the staff at Hamdon Medical Centre

What does the PPG do?

The Patient Participation Group (PPG) is an essential and valued part of all our practices and helps us to understand what the patient experience is really like.

The group will meet a few times a year to hear about current news at the practice, current challenges and developments for the future. Now that we have become part of Symphony Healthcare Services, we have set up a new group to work closely with our patients.

We have had a fantastic response to our new PPG launch and have a great team of enthusiastic volunteers to put forward ideas, suggestions and ask questions on behalf of all patients and to support communication.  If you would like to join the full, or virtual group please contact our PPG Chair; Peter Callaghan for a chat.
