Dragon Boat Race

The GPs and Staff from  Clevedon Medical Centre took part in the Bristol Dragon Boat Race Festival on Sunday 10th June to raise money for the  Caring in Bristol (homeless support) Charity.

We  would be very grateful to anyone willing to support us in our Fund Raising efforts through our “Just Giving Page”

or by donating during our fund raising events in the practice over the coming weeks

Our Crew  rowed under the name of  the  Clevedon Clowns and managed a win and 2 places in the three heats.

 

Parking

At the beginning of February one of our patients was knocked down by a delivery van in the area clearly marked with double yellow lines.

The van driver’ view was  obstructed by  another patient’s car which had been left on the double yellow lines, partially blocking the entrance, and this significantly contributed to the accident, which resulted in a hospital admission.

We would ask all patients to please comply with the parking  restrictions. They are there to protect our patients from accidents such as this, and to leave the area clear for ambulances.

Please respect our caretaker if he asks you to move your car away from a restricted area and please, under no circumstances, drive across public right away between the medical centre and the     pharmacy or around to the back of the building. Parking in that area is for staff and GPs, on a permit basis only. Access must be kept free at all times to allow GPs and our paramedic to exit quickly to attend to emergency call-outs.

Improved Access

We are working together with other local practices to offer more appointments at weekends. Speak to a member of the practice team to find out more.

 Staff Training

It order for us to provide the best service we can for our patients we need to set aside time for training for both clinical and non clinical staff. This training takes place one afternoon every six weeks between 2 and 5pm. During that time a GP remains on duty for emergency requests but there are no routine appointments and staff are not able to provide prescriptions or book appointments.

Staff training dates for 2018 are as follows;

Wednesday 25th April

Thursday 18th June

Tuesday 24th July

Wednesday 26th September

Thursday 29th November

Getting the right appointment

Sometimes  the GP isn’t really the best person to see. You could be seen and treated quicker and more appropriately by a nurse practitioner / physician associate / acute care practitioner or it may be better to have an assessment with an associated  physiotherapist or a pharmacist. In some cases, the GP practice might not be the right place at all for your query.

Our receptionists and admin staff are trained to ensure that they can help you get to the right service and the right appointment with the most appropriate clinician.

So the next time you call for a GP appointment, these trained frontline staff will ask you what the problem is. This isn't to be nosy but it's so they can help get you to the right health professional within or outside the practice for your needs.

They also have a multitude of information and knowledge about services outside of the GP practice that can help too if you need that.

Care Quality Commission Report

We are pleased to advise that following our recent inspection the Practice was rated as Good across all categories. The inspectors praised the leadership and governance culture; staff understanding of their responsibilities to raise concerns; the use of proactive methods to improve patient outcomes; the positive feedback from patients; close working with other organisations to plan services that met patient's needs and the implementation of suggestions for improvement from patients and the patient participation group.

They are able to undertake some follow-up appointments by telephone and they also prescribe for conditions such as UTIs (where they do not need to examine you) over the telephone. The reception staff should be able to guide you as to when a telephone conversation is appropriate.
