Noticeboard

PLEASE NOTE: As from 1st June 2017 the Practice will require 48 hours notice for all repeat prescriptions to be ready for collection at our reception desk.

We had 31 patients who failed to attend their appointment last week!!

We will be closed on Wednesday 12th July and Monday 28th August for Bank Holiday.

We have been informed that callers, claiming to be linked to the patient's GP Practice, are seemingly using private patient details and are using this information trying to either sell products to the patient, or to extract financial information, including bank details.

Please be assured that under no circumstances are these people contacting you on behalf of your GP Practice.  Therefore, do not disclose any information to them.  Please contact our GP Practice, or the PSNI, if you are aware of any of these incidents, so we can assist you from becoming victims of these callers.  Thank You.

 

 

Diabetes Update: Lucozade® Energy is Changing

 

 

Lucozade® Energy Original now contains approximately 50% less glucose-based carbohydrates. This applies to all Lucozade® Energy flavours. New products will appear on the shelf from April 2017, so for a time, both old and new bottles and cans may be on the shelf together – remember to check the label.

Further information for both patients and healthcare professionals is available at http://www.lrsuntory.com/our-brands/lucozade-energy/health/ and https://www.diabetes.org.uk/Guide-to-diabetes/Teens/Me-and-my-diabetes/Getting-my-glucose-right/Hypos/Hypos---what-to-do/.

 Diabetes

 

Diabetes UK has provided the following advice:

If you have been advised to drink Lucozade® Energy Original when your blood glucose is low, the amount you drink will need to change. For example if you have been told you need:

 10g of carbohydrate, you will now need 110ml

 15g of carbohydrate, you will now need 170ml

 

For other flavours, the amounts to drink will be different. Always check the label before use.

 

Social Media 

The Practice is aware that some patients have posted disparaging comments about staff and the Practice on social media. If you have any comments or complaints about the Practice please write to the Practice Manager. This ensures we can respond to people's concerns with patient confidentiality in mind.

 

New Year Resolution

In 2017 we would appreciate if our patients would CANCEL their appointment if they are unable to attend the Doctor or Nurse. Each week approximately

12% of our appointments

are wasted because patients do not attend!!!

 

If you suffer from a chronic illness, and have recently received a letter asking to make an appointment please remember to do so.
