Urgent on the day care and Nurse Louise’s change in role

Nurse Louise Main and her new role in urgent on the day care

With the ever increasing pressure on GP surgeries in general, and Shere Surgery in particular, it has become necessary to look for alternative ways to maximise the availability of routine GP appointments whilst ensuring that patients in need of urgent on the day care can be helped in a timely way.

As many patients know Nurse Louise has a wealth of experience in practice nursing, managing long term and acute conditions, minor ailments and urgent care. This experience makes Louise ideally suited to a new role in providing urgent on the day care to our patients.

We will begin trialling this new role on 16th October 2017 and all patients in need of urgent on the day care, on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, will be given an initial telephone consultation with Louise. It may be that the problem can be resolved over the telephone but if not patients may be given an appointment with Louise or with a GP as appropriate.

All routine nursing care previously provided by Louise will continue to be available from her very able colleagues in the nursing team. If anyone is particularly concerned about how this change may affect them personally please do contact Nurse Alison Bytheway who will be happy to help.

Telephone Fault

We now have partial functionality on our telephone system so we can now receive incoming calls on our main number 01483 202066. However some functions, such as option 2 for Dispensary,  are still out of action but Reception will be able to transfer your call. It may be a week or two before the system is fully repaired and up to full functionality again and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible Information Standard is an NHS England initiative that tells organisations how to ensure that disabled patients and their carers receive information in formats that they can understand, as well as receiving appropriate support to help them to communicate. Such formats could include large print, braille or easy-read documents.
A disabled person is defined as “Persons with disabilities include those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others.”
As a practice we will ask patients if they have any information or communication needs, and find out how best to meet their needs. This information will be recorded clearly and in a set way.
For more information on this aspect of the GP contract please click here to visit the dedicated NHS England webpage.
