New Practice Business Manager
As many of you will know, our Practice Manager Robert Weir, left us at the end of December to pursue a career in the private sector, providing support to NHS practices. Ann, the Business Development & Finance Manager has been covering both roles in the interim. Good News – a new Practice Business Manager, Samuel Barrett, joined the practice on 1 March. Although Sam has no previous experience as a Practice Manager, he is a qualified Paramedic and has plenty of experience of healthcare services. Prior to joining us he was Station Manager at St John’s Ambulance service.
Sam and Ann will work together to assist the Partners in ensuring the smooth running of the practice.
Improvements to the practice
Carrying on from completion of the new extension, further work is to be undertaken to refurbish the original building. Initially this will involve replacement of the sinks in 10 consulting rooms, and replacement of the fluorescent lighting throughout the building with new LED lighting.
Consequently there will be workmen on site, and some areas will be cordoned off in order to ensure your safety.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding this work please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ring her on 01235 517760.
Every patient on the practice list has been allocated a Named Accountable GP. You can ask reception next time you contact the surgery, or email email@example.com to confirm the name of your Named Accountable GP, or to change to another doctor.
The Named Accountable GP is ultimately responsible for ensuring that health care issues related to the patients on their list e.g. test results, prescription, letters are processed and acted upon appropriately.
Each doctor has a 'list' and we endeavour to distribute the lists evenly, depending on the number of days the doctor works at the surgery.
Having a Named Accountable GP does not mean that you need to see that GP when you visit the surgery, patients can choose to see whichever doctor they wish.
We want to ensure that we can contact patients when we need to. Do we have the correct contact details for you? You can pick up a form at Reception, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us of any changes to your email address or phone number.
Our main surgery is Woodlands Medical Centre, Didcot. We also have a branch surgery at Blewbury. Woodlands surgery has an attached pharmacy run by Lloyds. Woodlands has easy access for those with disabilities and ample parking space. Patients living in Blewbury may prefer to attend the branch surgery, held in the Village Hall each Tuesday and Friday morning 08:00 - 12:00.
