Stay well this winter

 

GP’s surgeries and A&E come under increasing pressure over the winter months, so we’re asking you to consider whether you can self care if your illness is not serious.

 

Coughs, colds and other minor illnesses can often be managed with a visit to your local pharmacist, but if your symptoms persist we recommend you book an appointment with your GP.

 

We understand that some health problems get worse as the weather gets colder, and we want you to be able to access the right service for your health care needs.

 

There are lots of options available, from self-treatment to advice in a pharmacy, GP services, calling NHS 111, mental health services, walk-in and urgent care centres and A&E.

 

Gedling GP and Nottingham North and East Clinical Commissioning Group’s clinical lead, Dr James Hopkinson says: “Often people needing medical help go straight to A&E when there may be another more appropriate service available, such as their GP, pharmacist, NHS 111 or their local walk-in or urgent care centre, all of which may be better placed to help.

 

“People tend to get better advice and faster treatment when they need it if they choose the right NHS service for their symptoms or illness, so I’d ask them to consider carefully before going straight to A&E.”

 

Top tips for staying well this winter

  • Keep your home warm, at least 18 degrees Celsius
  • If eligible, make sure you get your FREE flu jab - speak to your doctor or pharmacist
  • Make sure you keep taking any prescribed medicines and take them as directed
  • If you are prescribed antibiotics, make sure you finish the course
  • Keep a supply of cold and flu remedies in the house
  • If you start to feel ill, get help from your pharmacy straight away
  • A&E is for emergencies only. If your surgery is closed then NHS 111 can help you get the right treatment

New system for sending messages to patients

We have introduced a new system for sending messages to our patients.  This system enables us to not only send our patients messages and reminders we can send out invites and gather information quickly and easily.  The system is called MJOG and works with our clinical system to send text messages for all those patients for whom we hold a valid mobile telephone number.

When you book an appointment you will receive a text message confirming it.  The message will be sent within a couple of hours of you making the appointment.  However if your appointment is more than 7 days away you will not receive a message until 7 days BEFORE the appointment.  All patients will also receive a reminder text message the day before their appointment.  If you receive the reminder and no longer need the appointment you can quickly and easily cancel your appointment by texting CANCEL to the number in the message.  Please be aware if you are booking an appointment for the same day you will not receive a text confirmation message.

After your appointment you will receive a text message asking you to participate in our Friends and Family Test - it is a quick and simple text response for how you would rate the practice.

In the next few weeks we will start to send out health campaigns using this system.  For example if we do not have an up to date smoking status for you we will text you to find out if you smoke or not.  Again it is a simple text reply that gives us all the information we require.

We operate a named GP list.

Patients are registered with Dr Campbell or Dr Louca. You will be allocated one of these GPs. The doctor you are registered to will be your accountable GP.
