Consultation Document and Consultation Survey

The proposed changes are:

- to relocate services from The Welby Practice, Bottesford to the adjacent Belvoir Vale site

- to modify the opening hours of our branch surgery at Waltham

NHS Long Term Plan - As medicine advances, health needs change and society develops, the NHS has to continually move forward so that in 10 year’s time we have a service fit for the future.

The NHS Long Term Plan is drawn up by frontline staff, patients groups, and national experts to be ambitious but realistic.

Please see the link to the NHS England Long Term Plan

Evening Clinic - Extended Access Service

From week commencing 26 November 2018 the above service will be delivered at:-

Belvoir Vale Surgery, Bottesford     6.30pm-8.30pm    Thursday

There will be a clinician session and nursing session running with appointment availability at an increased level to accommodate the same level of appointments previously offered.

The last Monday clinic will take place on 19 November 2018.

We will assess the level of uptake over the coming months. 

Many thanks for your kind co-operation.

Information Notice

Repeat Prescriptions - we have reverted back to two full working days for repeat orders.  In accordance with NHS guidance repeat prescriptions are, in general, issued as a one month supply.

Belvoir Vale Surgery has now merged with The Welby Practice

As there are two sites in Bottesford we will refer to the practice as The Welby Practice with the site name as Belvoir Vale or Welby Bottesford, the other locations are known as Harlaxton and Waltham.

You will notice some changes e.g. The Welby Practice header on letters, etc.

You will be able to book appointments with GPs, ANP, NP, Nurses and HCAs across all the sites.

New Data Protection Regulations from May 2018 (GDPR)

Under the new data protection regulations introduced from 25 May 2018, we will continue to contact patients via text messages regarding the delivery of care if they have provided consent to do so.

If practices are sending messages about recommended treatment for the management of a specific health issue, then this is defined as providing appropriate care for patients, not marketing purposes.

If you would like to opt out of any future contact via text messaging then please contact the surgery who will provide a form for completion.  

 

Improving SMS text Communication


We want to improve the way we communicate with patients.  Some of you are already receiving text message reminders for appointments.  We want to widen the number of patients benefiting from this service and we want to use the service for more than just appointment reminders.  For example, we might text you to let you know when a prescription is ready to collect or to ask you to come for your annual review.

From March 2018, if we've got your mobile number, we'll include you in this service unless you've opted out. 

Please let us know if you would not like to be part of this service and please make sure you inform us if your mobile number changes.
