Would Patients bringing children to the surgery, please bring something to keep them occupied. The surgery is a working environment so, although we do have some toys, there is not a lot for children to play with " ESPECIALLY if you are coming to Monday walk in, we can’t have loads of toys around the surgery as this causes trip hazard. Thank You.

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

If you’re in the 40-74 age group without a pre-existing condition, you may be contacted by the surgery to invite you for a free NHS Health Check every five years.

Patients can call in themselves and book an appointment, the surgery would just need to see if you are on any of the pre-existing disease registers.

The Health Check consists of asking you a few simple questions, and taking your BP, Height, Weight and a blood test.

Once you’ve had your NHS Health Check, your healthcare professional will discuss your results with you.

You’ll be given advice to help you lower your risk of a stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes or dementia and maintain or improve your health.

  • Request your medicines by phone, online or app 24 hours per day, when it suits you
  • Your medicines will be delivered to any UK address you specify, home, work, neighbour etc

Further details are available via this link

West Bar Surgery has a commercial interest in P2UWest Bar LLP, trading as "West Bar Prescription Service" and therefore cannot make any recommendation to you to use this service in preference to any other pharmacy. The GPs do not seek to persuade you to use this service and this letter should not be taken as amounting to any recommendation of this service by the GPs.

Named GP

All patients have a named GP.

This GP is responsible for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensuring they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP).

The GP you next see will confirm who is your named GP.

NHS England

There are changes coming in how we protect the information that we record in your medical record. The changes make it a legal obligation for us to share your information. The proposed benefits of sharing identifiable data are to help plan and monitor effective patient services especially where you may receive care from several different organisations. Please see the Patient Advice tab to the right which provides further information.

What do you need to do?

If you are happy for NHS England to direct the HSCIC to extract, store and manage your data you need do nothing. The information will automatically be taken from our computer system.

If you do not want your information to be taken you must tell us and we are able to block the upload of your identifiable and personal information.

If you are happy for your data to be used by HSCIC for anonymised reports but not shared with other agencies or companies in identifiable format, let us know so that we can add an alert to your record.

Text Messaging - Appointment Reminders

We have introduced an additional service to help you remember your appointment. You will now receive an appointment reminder by text to your mobile phone the day before your appointment, with the exception of Monday appointments where the reminder will be sent on a Friday.

To ensure you receive a text message please check the number we hold with our receptionists.

Should you not want to receive a reminder by text please advise our receptionists and they will ensure this is recorded.
