BIG CHANGES AT WILSON STREET!

Unfortunately, two of our doctors are moving on to new chapters of their lives – Dr Burton left Wilson Street at the start of September, and Dr Nkwam leaves us at the end of October. Replacing two doctors has not been easy, and we have taken the decision to employ three Advanced Clinical Practitioners, or ACPs for short. In the best spirit of our vision to train new clinicians, our own practice nurse Angela Parker has been in training to start in this new role, and we are also training Faisal Hussain, a prescribing pharmacist, who will be starting to see patients as an ACP in around six months. At the moment, you might see Faisal doing health checks for some chronic problems. We have also taken on experienced ACP Kelly Elliott. The ACPs are trained to see and treat minor ailments, freeing up GP appointments

BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?

From the 1st October you will hear a new message when you call for an appointment, informing you that our reception staff will ask you to briefly describe your problem. This aides us in booking you with the most appropriate member of staff. A comprehensive list of the problems that the ACPs can help with is below:

  • Allergies (e.g. hay fever/ allergic reactions)
  • Asthma, COPD
  • Back, leg and joint pains
  • Breast problems
  • Constipation
  • Coughs & colds, chest infections
  • Cystitis or urinary tract (water) infections
  • Dizziness
  • Eye problems such as conjunctivitis
  • Earache and ear infections
  • Contraception, including Emergency contraception
  • Headaches
  • Indigestion or acid reflux
  • Incontinence
  • Low mood, anxiety problems
  • Men’s Health
  • Minor Injuries, including wounds, burns and scalds
  • Skin problems such as rashes, eczema, psoriasis, ulcers, and insect bites
  • Sore throats
  • Tiredness, fatigue
  • Vaginal discharge and sexual health
  • Vomiting & Diarrhoea

Because of their level of training, the ACPs are unable to treat pregnant women, Kelly cannot see children under 1, and at present Angela cannot see children under 14.

The ACPs will also be available to treat emergency problems.

The bottom line is that we will be offering more appointments and a more efficient service for everyone!

A NEW GP AS WELL?!

In addition to the changes above, we have also employed a new GP, Dr Ghandi. We are very much looking forward to her starting on the 8th of October.

*Mid Morning surgeries have been introduced as a result of the closure of our Boots satelite surgery.One GP will consult each weekday on a rotational basis from 11:00am until 1:00pm. Some of these appointments are available to pre-book up to 14 days in advance either by telephone, online or by visiting the practice.

The surgery doors are opened at 7.30am to allow you to call in and make an appointment. These times may vary slightly according to the doctor you are seeing.

For patients consulting with the Extended Hours GP from 7.00am, you will be able to gain access to the building.  

We close at 6.30pm Monday to Friday.  Please note there are no routine doctors appointments on a Wednesday afternoon, however, the surgery remains open for other clinics (nurse, minor surgery etc.) and for collection of repeat prescriptions. 

**Please Note:

The Saturday Extended Hours surgery ceased with effect from 1 June 2011.

Due to the popularity of the early weekday morning Extended Hours surgeries, we have introduced a second GP who will see patients from 7.00am until 8.00am. These appointments are pre-bookable up to 14 days in advance.
