NHS commissioners launch online survey as part of the big conversation around urgent care ( posted on Jul 17, 2018 )

NHS East Berkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) launches an online survey as part of its drive to engage with local people about what matters to them when they require urgent care.  The survey will run from 10 July – 6 August. 

 

Urgent care services are for people who have an injury or illness that needs attention the same day, but it is not life-threatening or life changing. These services are currently provided by a number of health professionals, including GPs, nurses, paramedics, pharmacists and others.

 

The CCG has had a busy few weeks talking to over 280 local people at meetings, online via two ‘Cover It Live’ sessions and by visiting local community groups.

 

These early conversations are designed to ensure that patients and local residents are involved from the beginning in influencing how services should be developed.

 

The survey launches the second phase of the ‘Big conversation’ around urgent care.  The survey has been designed to give local people an idea of some of the things we have heard already and test their views.

 

The survey can be accessed by using the following link:

https://your-voice-matters.eastberkshireccg.nhs.uk/communications/the-big-conversation/

 

The insights from these conversations and the survey will inform what services could look like in the future.

 

Dr Adrian Hayter, Locality Lead for Windsor, Ascot & Maidenhead, said: “It’s really important for local people to be part of this journey to help us transform the future of urgent care in East Berkshire.  We need local people to share their experiences and tell us what matters to them when they have an urgent care need.

 

He added: “I would like to reassure the people of East Berkshire that their feedback will be taken into account in developing options for the future.  If we need to proceed to a formal consultation stage before making any changes, we will do so later in the autumn.”

Measles outbreaks in England, including confirmed case in Bracknell ( posted on Jan 8, 2018 )

Since November, measles outbreaks linked to large outbreaks in Europe have been declared in various places across England. Please note that Romania, Italy and Germany are the worst affected countries. All of the cases have been reported in children and adults who have not received 2 doses of the MMR vaccine. Measles is highly infectious and can lead to serious complications, particularly in immunosuppressed people and infants. It is also more severe in pregnancy and increases the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and preterm delivery.

There has been local activity recently in Thames Valley with one confirmed case in an unvaccinated child who lives in Bracknell. This case is not travel-related. 

Please ensure that you are up to date with your vaccines. If you are unsure, please make a telephone appointment with one of the nursing team. 

Measles starts with cold-like symptoms that develop about 10 days after becoming infected. This is followed a few days later by the measles rash. For most people, the illness lasts around 7 to 10 days in total. Initial symptoms can include:

  • a runny or blocked nose
  • sneezing
  • watery eyes
  • swollen eyelids
  • sore, red eyes that may be sensitive to light
  • a high temperature (fever), which may reach around 40C (104F)
  • small greyish-white spots in the mouth 
  • aches and pains
  • a cough
  • loss of appetite
  • tiredness, irritability and a general lack of energy

If you think your child/ you have the measles, please DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY, but telephone us for advice. Measles is HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS, and we do not want to put our patients and staff at risk unnecessarily. 

Message from Chair of CCG regarding recent media interest in cancelled operations ( posted on Jan 5, 2018 )

You may have read in the national press that the situation in hospitals - especially in A&E departments - is very challenging.  We have received notification from Frimley Trust (Frimley, Wexham Park and Heatherwood Hospitals) that they have taken the decision not to cancel planned surgery and outpatient appointments at this point in time.  

We would encourage you to:

  1. Use reliable online resources for advice as a first option (e.g.) www.nhs.uk
  2. Seek telephone advice from NHS 111
  3. Visit your local pharmacist for medication advice and advice on minor illnesses
  4. Contact your surgery for telephone help and advice where required.
  5. Make use of extended hours services available in the hubs and clusters, and in the Walk-In-Centres

Don't stop your Antibiotics because of the News ( posted on Jul 31, 2017 )

A large number of newspapers, TV and radio programmes carried news recently recommending patients should stop their Antibiotics when they feel better and ignore doctors advice on the length of treatment.
Dr. Martin Kittel, GP Partner at Forest Health Group, Bracknell said "Please ignore the newspapers and read this article before you take any action."

Emailing the surgery ( posted on Jun 15, 2017 )

Please note that we will only accept email requests for repeat prescriptions. We will NOT accept email requests for clinical information (e.g. referral letters, query about a clinical condition etc.) and would kindly request that you make either a face-to-face or telephone appointment for these issues.

This is for governance reasons, and is to ensure that your clinical safety is maintained at all times. 

Thank you for your co-operation.

(Dis) courteous parking ( posted on Apr 13, 2017 )

When attending the surgery, please consider our neighbours and park courteously. Please do not park across their driveways, as this inconveniences them as well as being inconsiderate on your part. 

Please do not park immediately outside the surgery entrance either - we are situated on a blind bend, and for those who are turning out and cannot see on-coming traffic, this is dangerous. 

A polite reminder that the rear car park is for STAFF ONLY. Patients are continuing to ignore the clear signs and park in there. Three staff cars have recently been hit and damaged by inconsiderate individuals ignoring the signage and blatantly disregarding the rules. 

Thank you for your co-operation. 

Check in screen ( posted on Apr 6, 2016 )

You will have noticed that we haveÂa new check in screen, and we have changed its location to just inside the waiting room on the wallÂnext to the reception desk. This means that you will be able to check in as soon as you come into the surgery, rather than having to walk right through the waiting room.ÂPlease ensure that you follow through all of the screens right to the end and click "FINISH" otherwise the system does not update, and we will not know that you are here.

Credit card machine ( posted on Oct 8, 2015 )

We have a credit/ debit card machine available for your convenience when paying for non-NHS services at the surgery.

 We accept all major debit and credit cards. Please note: we do NOT accept Americal Express.
