CHANGES TO REQUESTS FOR REPEAT MEDICATIONS - South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (SLCCG) have instructed all Community Pharmacies that they may no longer accept Repeat Medication Requests from patients for delivery to Beechfield Medical Centre - the onus is now on patients to deliver their requests directly to us, or to register online with us and make their requests that way.  Arrangements have been made for those patients who consider themselves to be "vulnerable" to continue to service their requests through Community Pharmacies on application to the pharmacy.  Please note that if you are unable to register for online requests, then the simplest option will be to hand deliver your request outside of normal working hours, and post it in the letterbox for that purpose just to the left of the main entrance to the surgery building.  


Please note that this change has not been instigated or driven by the Practice, but we have no choice but to comply with the instructions of the SLCCG in this matter.


See Latest News Section for details of recent in house surveys of our services, and for details of our Training Closures in 2018.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST

The Practice collects information from you following visits to the surgery with regard to the way that you feel that the visit went - in short this is called the "Friends and Family Test" and asks whether, based on your latest visit, you would recommend the surgery to your Friends and Family.  We collect this information primarily through the SMS texting service, but it can also be fed back at the surgery through the forms and collection boxes held there.  This information is fed back to NHS England on a monthly basis and we are able to react to emerging trends if and when they are noted.   

For previous data please click HERE which covers all of 2017.

STRUGGLING TO COPE WITH A FAMILY MEMBER'S DRINKING?

Al-Anon Family Groups support people who are struggling to cope with a family member's drink problem. There are over 750 groups throughout the UK, and Spalding has it's own group.  It meets every Monday evening at 1945 at the Ivo Day Centre, 67A Albion Street, Spalding PE11 2AU.  It is a completely confidential and anonymous service that is funded as a registered charity, and supported by voluntary contributions.  It is a walk in service - simply turn up and you will be assured of a warm welcome.  More information is available by clicking here.


RECENT PRACTICE SURVEYS

We are always keen to hear the views of our patients in relation to the services that we provide, and attached are the results of three recent surveys with regard to our Nurse Team, our Dispensary Services and an externally assessed patient feedback analysis of our GPs.  

Many thanks to all of those that took part - the extremely positive results are very encouraging.  We will continue to run ad-hoc surveys of this nature for the future, as we are able to learn from them and- where necessary - adapt our services accordingly.
