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.
Drop in Service for Smear Tests
We are pleased to announce we are able to offer a drop in service for smear tests at our Staff Health Centre for the next 3 months, starting Monday 30th January 2017. This is open to patients who are registered at Petersfield Medical Practice as well as the Staff Health Centre. This service will be available from 1100 to 1130 every Monday to Thursday with Amy White, our Staff Health Centre Nurse. Please telephone Diana McCormack, Receptionist at Staff Health Centre, on 01223 216689 if you would like further information.
Disappearance of Radio from Upstairs Waiting Area
Regular patients will have noticed that it is a little quieter in the upstairs waiting room. Unfortunately someone appears to have removed our radio, obviously without our permission. The staff are very disappointed that this has happened and I am sure the staff and patients alike would be very pleased if it could find its way back to the waiting room again at some point. The radio was used not only for everyone's enjoyment while they were waiting but also for confidentiality reasons and is obviously missed. Thank you.
