Improving Access to Appointments
We all know that the NHS is under extreme pressure nationally. At Chesterfield Medical Partnership we are doing all we can to mold our systems to best meet the needs of our practice population.
With this in mind you will start to see a change in the way we book our appointments.
We will be using our highly trained Nurse Practitioners to run clinics. They can diagnose, prescribe and refer patients in the same way as GP’s can. They will work alongside the GPs running their own clinics and referring to their colleagues where required.
In order for this system to work, you will find that the Reception team will be asking a standard set of questions (much like the 111 operators do). We want to reassure you that this is not because they are nosey, it is because they need to ensure you are booked with the correct clinician.
To help us help you, please book one appointment for one issue and do not come with a list for a 10 minute appointment.
We anticipate that this revised system will help with the access to appointments.
Thank you for your co-operation.
We have once again listened to our patients and simplified our extended opening hours. Due to the popularity of the early morning drop in Phlebotomy sessions, we are to run a weekly session both at Whittington and at Ashgate on Thursday mornings from 7am.
We will be increasing the extended hours we do weekly at Ashgate and dropping the monthly evening session at Whittington.
So as from 6/7/15 our extended hours will be as follows:
- Thursdays at Ashgate and Whittington from 7am
- Tuesday at Ashgate only, we will be open until 8:30pm
We believe that this will make it clearer for all our patients.
