Illness or injury? Not sure where to turn? Get health advice ASAP
The NHS in Gloucestershire has launched their ASAP (Choose Well) public information campaign.
The campaign targets adults and parents of young children with advice on what to do if they are ill or injured and are unsure where to turn.
The promotional material encourages them to check out the App, Search the website, Ask NHS 111 or visit their Pharmacy.
The ASAP website and App allows users to ‘Search by Service’ or ‘Search by Condition’ – providing a step by step guide through symptoms, self care and signposting to the appropriate NHS service/s.
They can also find opening hours and service location information.
As well as on-line options, the public can call NHS 111 for advice, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and they can visit their pharmacy for advice on whether or not they need to use other NHS services.
Local GP and CCG Governing Body member, Dr Caroline Bennett said:
“It can be difficult sometimes to know where to turn for help when you are ill or injured, but it’s not a life threatening emergency. Now, local people will never be without timely advice on what to do.
This campaign – including its headline message and supporting resources should make a real difference in helping people to access important health advice when they need it most.”
The high profile campaign will include targeted social media advertising, traditional media, distribution of promotional material, outdoor advertising and outreach (e.g. schools).
Local people are encouraged to add the website www.asapglos.nhs.uk to their favourites and download the App free from the App store (ASAP Glos NHS).
NEW GUIDANCE FROM JUNE 2018 - NEW GUIDANCE
If possible please try to telephone reception before 10:00 if you require a home visit.
You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed.
You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
NEW GUIDANCE FROM JUNE 2018- PLEASE READ -APPOINTMENT GUIDANCE
You can book to have a telephone consultation with a GP. He or she will ring you at an agreed time on the telephone number you have given us.
Telephone appointments are a convenient alternative for those problems which do not require a face to face consultation, e.g. for advice or follow up.
For more than twenty years, the surgery has been involved in the postgraduate training of doctors to become GP's. GP Registrar's have several years hospital experience before they join the practice team. Dr Rachel Khalid is our qualified GP trainer, currently working closely with GP Registrar's to assist their entry into General Practice.
Patients may, from time to time, be asked if they mind having another doctor present during their consultation, or if they mind their consultation being recorded for training purposes. The doctors fully understand that some patients may prefer not to have another doctor present or their consultation recorded and will always respect the wishes of the patient at these times.
We are a 4 partner Practice, (of approx 10,300 patients in a mixed urban/rural pattern). We also have the services of Dr Alyson van den Broek in a part-time post for three sessions weekly, Dr Reita Kanan who works 3 days per week, Dr Jackie Orme who works 3 days per week, Dr Wendy Peek, who works 3 days per week, Dr Hannah Bland, who works 3 days per week and Dr Hannah Lunn, who is currently on Maternity Leave. They are all salaried partners. The practice is situated in the northern half of the city approximately 1 mile from the centre. The surrounding areas of housing constitute the bulk of the practice population, but all urban areas of Gloucester contribute and we have patients present in all the small villages surrounding the city.
The practice is long established and has had five partners since 1984 and increased to six partners. The practice population is stable and has increased since 1984 by approximately 2000.
The age spread of our patients is typical of all those practices in the city, but we probably have a higher representation of middle class patients than some. All social classes are represented from the homeless to the most socially advantaged.
All have the MRCGP and all contribute equally to the Practice
We are a teaching practice and, in recent years, almost every registrar has applied to extend his or her training with us. We currently have Dr Joanne Jones, trainee, with us. The current Practice Trainer is Dr Rachel Khalid.
We believe that the practice provides a superb environment for the GP registrar with full commitment to protected teaching time, VTS release, study leave, weekly joint surgeries, video surgeries and tutorials. There is even time for a half day each week for the registrar. Your training year must however be enjoyable and memorable. One partner holds the DMJ and is a Vice chair of the Clinical Comissioning Group.We provide clinics for asthma, diabetes, ante- natal, well person, cervical cytology, immunization, smoking cessation, hypertension, coronary heart disease and child health surveillance clinics. Minor surgery, sigmoidoscopy and family planning is also undertaken. Our immunisation rates for children are approx. 98% and cervical cytology rate close to 85%. The Primary Health Care team is comprised of the following:
All participate fully in our monthly primary health care team meetings and clinical governance.
Practice premises are on one large site at the Aspen Centre in Horton Road with consulting rooms for each GP and a further consulting room for our registrar, three nurses/treatment rooms and a branch surgery three miles away in Tuffley, a Gloucester suburb. Both sites are served by the same linked computer system, EMIS system, with full local area network, NHS net and Internet connections. All consultations are entered onto the computer record by individual partners, which would be termed "paperless" consulting. This terminology does not however indicate the huge influx of paper communication currently being received! All hospital correspondence is scanned into the computer system and we are electronically linked to the hospital for pathology results.
The practice is highly regarded locally with a very good relationship with the consultants at Gloucester Royal Hospital. All partners are fully accredited, with full PGEA.
The above profile is a brief outline of the practice, which we hope is helpful to you. Should you require more information we would be delighted to see or speak to you.
Our Practice Manager is Mrs Clare Barnfield Tel. 01452 337733 . Alternatively our trainer, Dr Khalid on the same number or by email Rachel.firstname.lastname@example.org
