Noticeboard

 For Information – Contrary to some press and internet stories most GP Surgeries have never stopped seeing patients.  From day 1 we continued to see patients in the surgery for assessment, review and treatments if face to face appointment was indicated.  We have transformed the way we work to enable more patients than ever to be helped by rapidly replacing carpets with vinyl to allow more rooms to be opened to face to face appointment.  We offer telephone, video, email consultations and yes we still do home visits.  Front door triage ensures all patients having to attend are a safe and distanced as possible and leave by other doors to the front to avoid crossing paths.  We clean down after EVERY patient.   At no time since the start of this pandemic has anyone been away from surgery duty unless annual leave, sickness or shielding and this is a testament to the dedication of amazing team from Patient Administration dealing with over a thousand calls a week; our Nursing Team working tirelessly seeing their regular patients for dressings, injections, blood tests and urgent patching up;  to Doctors who have had to adapt overnight to using technology to continue to see patients in a different way and using their skills and knowledge to try to best help those in clinical need.  With the measures we have had to put in place we have managed to avoid bringing Covid-19 into the surgery and been able to maintain and expand our services to our patients.   Whilst Covid-19 is still a threat we will continue to telephone triage ALL patient facing appointments,  and on entry to the surgery go through the protocols of temperature, recent travel, cough or loss of sense of taste or smell & ask that you wear a face covering because we already know that most people attending the surgery are already ill or at risk and we will try to do everything to ensure you are protected whilst in our care.

ALL patients attending the Surgery for their pre-booked appointment will be asked to wear a face covering or mask in line with the latest advice.

CQC Findings 2016

Following an initial visit in January and a review in August we have now got our final outcome which is now GOOD in all areas.

We had a few things to put right or update ourselves on and have achieved this within the 6 month timeframe given.  A lot of the items were administrative improvements of spreadsheets and tick box forms to prove education & learning.  We worked closely with Rural Rother Federation to ensure ALL clinicians across Rural Rother had Safeguarding Training and will continue on this line with other mandatory training sessions.

We would like to thank all patients who responded to the CQC in-house survey in January as we had glowing reports from all responders which adds greatly to the CQC points tally.

We hope to continue to improve across all areas and maintain high standards of care to our practice population.
