—— SURGERY NEWS——

 

We would like to announce, Dr Elizabeth Stanger,  Salisbury’s longest serving GP will be retiring from the Three Swans Surgery at the end of September.

Dr  Stanger first came to Salisbury as a junior doctor at Salisbury Infirmary and has been a key part of our medical community ever since.  For 34 years she has provided outstanding care to the patients of Salisbury and has been a wonderful colleague to those of us fortunate enough to work with her.

 We would like to wish her a very long and happy retirement.

PROPOSED MERGER

 

Three Swans Surgery is proposing to merge with Endless Street Surgery and St Ann Street Surgery in April 2017. The aim of the merger is to enable the three surgeries to provide more and improved services to our patients with the ultimate objective being the construction of a new purpose built primary care centre to replace the St Ann Street and Endless Street properties

 

The majority of the changes in April 2017 will be in the way the administrative support for the practices is organised and as a patient you should notice very little change. You will still ring the same phone number for the surgery, talk to the same receptionist and see your usual GP in your usual building.

 

We are hoping to be able to buy a piece of land In Harnham to construct our new building but at the moment we are in the early stages of negotiation with Salisbury City Council, the owners of the land. If we are fortunate enough to be able to build a brand new surgery, we will still retain the Three Swans Surgery in the centre of Salisbury. We intend that patients from all three surgeries then will be offered the choice of seeing their own doctor either at the new site or at Three Swans.

 

As the project progresses we will endeavour to keep all our patients informed and there will be opportunities for consultation on the services and facilities that we hope to provide

Accountable Named GP

In line with our contractual requirements all of our patients, as of 30th June 2015,  have been allocated a named, accountable GP.

 What does 'Accountable' mean:

Your named accountable GP will oversee the co-ordination of your care amongst the other health professionals.

 Does this mean that my named accountable GP will take 24 hour responsibility for my care:

No, the named accountable GP will not take 24 hour responsibility for your care, your named GP will purely oversee the care that you receive.

 Does this mean that I have the right to see my named GP every time I book an appointment:

No, a patient can express who they would like to see, however, this may not always be possible due to appointment availability with that GP.

Can patients still see any GP they wish:

Yes, a patient can continue to see any GP they wish as they currently do.

Will I be informed in writing who my accountable named GP is:

No, your practice does not have to inform you in writing. we have added the information to patients who have a repeat prescirption   If you would like to know who your named GP is then please contact the practice.

Can I change my named accountable GP:

Yes, just ask at reception and they will help you with this

 DATA SHARING

Your health record and sharing of information

 

Your health record includes your medical history, details about your medication and any allergies you may have.

 

At a time of emergency or crisis it’s important that clinicians can securely access your recent medical history so that they can understand the best way to help you. 

 

This means that if you need to see an out of hours doctor, Access to Care, Wiltshire Community Health Services or require treatment at an acute hospital for example, your health records can be quickly and easily accessed by clinicians to help tailor the medical support you need.

 

Your information will only be shared with other healthcare services if you give your explicit consent.

 

You will only be asked to share your medical information if the clinician feels it will benefit your care.

 

If you don’t want a clinician from another healthcare service to be able to view your health record, you can say so at the point at which the clinician asks you.

 

Your information will only be used by the clinician to help determine the most appropriate medical support for you. Your health records won’t be shared with any other organisation or used for any non-clinical need.

If you have any concerns or need further information, please speak with your prac­tice or contact Wiltshire Clinical Commis­sioning Group on: WCCG.info@nhs.net
