Opening Hours

PPG Meeting

We have held our first PPG after relaunching the group this summer. Thanks to those PPG members who attended. We had some really good ideas to improve communication and recruit more PPG members to ensure that we have a diverse group that represents the practice population.  To see the minutes from the meeting click here.

Online Consultations Update 

We have done our first week of online GP consultations and had some brilliant feedback from patients about the service.

Our average response time for queries before 12pm has been 30 minutes

Patients have been able to obtain treatment and advice without coming to the surgery

We have found that patients who consult online but still need to be seen in person by a GP take less time to be seen due the detailed information given online

Keeping in touch.......

Our Summer News letter is available here, in the Surgery or on our

Clinical pharmacist

We now have a clinical pharmacist working at the practice.  As a specialist in medicine, you can see her if you have medication related problems to discuss rather than seeing a GP.  As at reception.  

 

Research

As your local GP practice we’re committed to ensuring we work with you as well as our partners to continually make improvements to the services you receive. We are currently working with NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (responsible for planning and funding the majority of local health services), Leeds GP Confederation and Leeds City Council on a piece of research work and we need your help.

We are working with an independent research company called Qa Research Ltd, who have been asked to find out more about your experiences of an annual review process for people living with one or more long-term conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or respiratory disease. This review forms part of a service called collaborative care and support planning (CCSP).

The CCSP process is for people with a long-term condition to help them manage this effectively over a 12 month period. The process involves two appointments. At the first appointment we carry out some health tests and at the second appointment we focus on what’s important for you and set goals, as identified by you, for the following year.

It’s your choice if you want to take part in the research however by doing so you’ll be helping us make changes that could help you as well as other people in Leeds. It’s entirely up to you if you’d like to take part and it’s really important for you to know that everything you say will remain confidential and information that could identify you will never be shared with your GP practice, NHS Leeds CCG or Leeds City Council.

To thank you for your time, Qa Research will offer you a small payment for out of pocket expenses of either £15 (telephone interview) or £35 (focus group) which they will confirm with you. Please note if you’re in receipt of benefits or declare income to HMRC, you may need to declare this as an income. There are a limited number of places available, so not everyone who expresses an interest will be selected to take part.

If you’d like to take part please get in touch with Qa Research on Freephone 0800 980 9030 or email patient@qaresearch.co.uk
