At the end of July we said goodbye to Dr Anisio Veloso and Dr Laura Nutt our GP registrar.  We wish them all the very best for the future and will miss them being a valuble member to our team.

 

JULY 2016

Kirstie Yelland, Nurse Practitioner has joined the surgery.  Kirstie will be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays at Parkhill.

 

MARCH 2016

 

Dr Veloso will be leaving us at the end of July 2016 and Dr Laura Nutt ends her period of training with us at that time too, this combined with Dr Murray's reduction in hours from April 1st leaves us with a serious reduction in medical time which we have been unable to replace. I expect most people are aware of the press coverage of a national shortage of GPs which is affecting Torquay very badly. We are therefore intending to close our Sherwell Valley site this summer as we no longer have the medical manpower to staff it safely - NHS England have asked if patients who wish to comment on this do so in writing to the practice manager. Parkhill will therefore be the only site and will enable us to use sparse medical manpower more effectively. Sadly the national shortage of GPs does not seem likely to improve in the foreseeable future.

 

JANUARY 2016

 

You may have heard on the news about Zika virus and pregnancy risks on the news so as this is the time of year when people think about holidays abroad we thought it sensible to put a link to the guidance on the website here
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/zika-virus

Dr Tessa Barton has joined us on Wednesdays working at our Parkhill site .

 

DECEMBER 2015

 

We wish all our patients a very 'Happy Christmas '.The surgery is closed over the bank holiday days and is open as usual between Christmas and New Year . 

There are still flu vaccinations left for those patients who are eligible but have not booked yet .

In January we welcome Dr Tessa Barton who will join our team of doctors on one day each week -she has already been doing some locums for us over the past few months so some of you may have met her already .

 

NOVEMBER 2015

 

We wanted to let our patients know that Torbay Depression and Anxiety service have recently updated and relaunched their website. It offers information about the services provided, access to self help materials and there is an new online self-referral facility. The service is available to both young and older patients who feel that they may benefit from this. You can either be referred by your GP or you can refer yourself directly if you prefer.

Please use the link to access the website -Torbay Depression & Anxiety Service

We also had our scheduled CQC inspection this month  and the report is expected sometime in the new year .Thank you to those patients who took the time to fill out one of the feedback forms in the waiting room .

We have also received the final results of our CFEP survey done earlier this autumn and have taken on board the comments about appointment access and issues with prescriptions so will be working on ways to improve in these areas .

 

OCTOBER 2015

 

This month sees the launch of two local initiatives from the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group), one reminding patients not to over-order medicines to avoid medicine wastage which cost the NHS locally over one million pounds last year (money which we would all agree would be better spent on other things) and the second to encourage people to 'self-care', i.e. to treat many self limiting conditions yourself (which we are sure that many of you already do) by seeking the advice of pharmacists who can sell quite a large range of medicines over the counter to treat these minor conditions . We support both of these initiatives .

PLEASE ALL REMEMBER TO BOOK YOUR FLU VACCINATIONS (SEE BELOW TO FIND OUT IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE)-THANK YOU
