Noticeboard

Over at Church Street Medical Centre we have extremely big hearted GPs, though a little wacky!!!  Three of them have very kindly decided to raise money for Eastwood Memory Cafe with a totally amazing challenge.  I would be really grateful if you could share this with anyone and everyone you know, so we can hopefully reach the target set. 

 

Please see the following link:

RACE TO THE PYRAMIDS

In order to support the amazing work of Eastwood Memory Cafe; we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively running the equivalent distance of Eastwood to The Pyramids of Giza, 2200 miles, by the end of 2018 and would love to raise the same number in £s - £2200!!!

Please support this fabulous charity which makes such a difference to those affected by dementia in our local area.

Feel free to keep nagging us to get those running miles in. We will give monthly updates with progress toward our target!

Practice Merger

Please see below for further information.

In order to help us deal with the merger of the systems we would be grateful if patients would order their repeat prescriptions before the bank holiday Monday on the 28th May. If minimal prescription requests can be sent this week it will help us immensely and will save delays in processing. Thank you

We are delighted to announce that Church Walk Surgery and Church Street Medical Centre are proposing to merge to form a ‘super-partnership’. We have begun to make arrangements to merge in May 2018.

Merger Leaflet

FAQ Sheet

 

The two practices have a history of working closely together and we believe that this merger will enable us to offer a greater variety of services to our patients.

Whilst our name will change, we will continue to work to our shared values and ethos, placing patients at the centre of our combined service. Patients will still be able to see their named GP for routine care appointments but we will be able to provide improved access for urgent care appointments too.

 

There will be many benefits to all our patients including availability of earlier and later appointments and medical staff with a wider pool of knowledge and skills.

 

Have your say

We very much welcome your feedback on our plans. If you have any specific queries or concerns please email noweccg.eastwoodmergerfeedback@nhs.net

or post to one of the surgeries. Open meeting sessions at Church Walk and Church Street practices will be arranged. Details will be published in due course.

****************************************************

From August 2016 our patients can now see a therapist for counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy at the Surgery.

Lets Talk Well Being, a well established provider of psychological therapies, are now operating from the surgery. Patients can self refer directly to them by asking at Reception or can be referred by their GP.

****************************************************

We are pleased to announce that an Ultrasound service is now running at the Surgery.

The community ultrasound clinics started at the Surgery from  March 2016 and have proved extremely popular. Patients that have been refered by their GP for a scan are now able to have thier scan at the practice rather than travelling to hospital for it.

****************************************

Extended Hours are being offered at our practice 

 Additional appointments are being offered for patients to book into from 7am on Wednesday mornings, there will be appointments available to pre-book with the GP, Nurse and HCA. We hope this service is of value to those patients who work and find it difficult to attend at other times.

Please remember to cancel appointments if you no longer need them - remember there is always someone else waiting to book appointments, try to be considerate.
