Named GP ( posted on Mar 31, 2016 )

You may be aware that, under the terms of the most recent GP Contract, all GP Practices are now required to provide their patients with a 'named, accountable GP'.


All patients registered with Grafton Medical Partners, including children, have a named GP reflected in their clinical record. We have allocated our patients, where possible, to doctors that they have most recently seen. In cases where patients have not been seen or the previous ‘usual GP’ is no longer with us, we have allocated patients more randomly to ensure a more even distribution across the Practice. 


We have been notifying you of the GP that you have been allocated in non-specific letters that you may have received, as well as via prescriptions, text messages and to your email if we have those details. You may also be informed when you contact us or during a consultation.


You can change your named GP if you wish to once you have been informed. Let us know and we will organise for this to be amended - so long as it is agreed by the Practice that your preference is suitable.


Please note that this is for administrative purposes and does NOT prevent you from seeing any GP of your choice in the practice as you currently do now. You are unlikely to see any notable change in the way care is delivered to you by us.

GP Practice Earnings (2014/15) ( posted on Mar 31, 2016 )

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice for 2014/15.


The average pay for GPs working for Grafton Medical Partners in the last financial year was £49,766 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 13 full-time and 15 part-time GPs as well as 11 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

Think! Why A&E? ( posted on Mar 3, 2015 )

That is the message from local doctors, as a new campaign to raise public awareness of the different NHS services available to local residents launches.


Developed in partnership with NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, it encourages people to choose the right NHS service for them and their families according to their symptoms.

 

The aim is to remind local people that A&E is not for common health problems associated with the colder weather but for critical or life-threatening emergencies.

 

Many people attend emergency service departments with minor ailments which could be better treated elsewhere. This can put extra demands on already pressured emergency departments, particularly during the winter period.

The Silver Line - The free, 24 hour, confidential helpline for older people ( posted on Jan 20, 2015 )

Set up by Dame Esther Rantzen a year ago, this helpline for the elderly has received over 300,000 calls since its inception. Its principal aim is to allow elderly people with few friends or family to overcome their isolation by having the opportunity to talk to someone. We highly recommend this service to our elderly patients and also to others perhaps thinking of some voluntary work.

 

The number to call is 0800 4 70 80 90.

care.data medical records download ( posted on Oct 7, 2013 )

URGENT ACTION REQUIRED

 

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 legally requires GPs to release electronic medical records of all registered patients, in an identifiable form, to a new central records database called care.data. The records will contain all coded data about you, but no free text. It will include your NHS number, so you could be easily identified from it if it fell into the wrong hands. After processing, we are told that the identifiable information will be removed, but we have to take Ministers' and Civil Servants' word for this.

 

We regard this as a serious and unnecessary breach of patient confidentiality and we have insufficient confidence in the security of this system. However as a GP practice we are legally obliged to provide this information in the next few weeks UNLESS you object. 

 

If you object to your personal, identifiable medical records leaving the practice, you must inform reception immediately.
