CQC Inspection Results
The Practice is pleased to announce we have received the results of our recent CQC inspection. We have been given a rating of Overall Good. Thank you to those patients who took the time to speak to the Inspectors on the day of the visit or who completed a comment card.
Reminders and Results by Text
We hope to be introducing a new service whereby patients can receive results by text and will receive text reminders of upcoming appointments. This should help the Practice reduce the number of late attenders and DNA's and help patients to find out their results in a quick and easy way. Watch this space or look out for posters in the waiting rooms with further details.
Choose & Book Referral Appointments
The majority of our hospital appointments are now made electronically via the Choose & Book system. Unless you specify otherwise, Thelma Fison, our secretary will select the next available appointment showing on the system for you. Details of the appointment will be sent to you in the post (or we can email the details if you prefer).
Please ensure your contact details (including mobile number, email address etc.) are up to date so the secretary can contact you about your referral appointment if necessary.
Recording of Calls
Following installation of our new telephony system, please note that all calls may be recorded for monitoring and training purposes from 24th July 2017.
Retirement of Dr Sebastian Alexander
After considerable thought and deliberation, Dr Alexander has decided to retire from Petersfield Medical Practice and his last surgery will be on Friday 29th September 2017. After 27 years at the Practice he will be sad to leave and he considers it a tremendous privilege to have worked at Petersfield and has seen and helped many patients over the years.
