Risk Profiling

Crossley Street Surgery is taking part in a new NHS service that helps your GP to spot whether you need more help to manage your health. This service is called “Risk Profiling”.

Using information from your health records, a secure NHS computer system will look at any recent treatments you have had in hospital or at this surgery, and any existing health conditions that you have, and alert your doctor to the likelihood of a possible future hospital admission. This information will help you get early care and treatment where it is needed.

If you don’t want your information being used in this way, or have any other concerns, please contact Peter McIntyre, IT Manager, at the practice.

TO ALL PATIENTS AGED OVER 75

As part of our contractual requirements with the government, we are now obliged to allocate a named GP to all our patients aged 75 and over.

If this affects you, you will have received a letter advising which GP is now allocated as your named GP. We appreciate that this may not be the GP you see most often.  

In all cases patients are registered with the Practice rather than an individual doctor and can choose to have their care provided by the Healthcare Professional of their choice, subject to availability.  

The process to allocate a named GP was discussed and agreed with the Crossley Street Patient Participation Group, prior to the letters being sent.  

   

Prescription Announcement

Please be aware that, from the end of 2014, we will no longer take routine prescription requests via the telephone, for safety reasons.

Community Connect

Community Connect is a new service (free of charge) provided by the British Red Cross in partnership with Wetherby in Support of the Elderly (WiSE) covering the Wetherby and Harewood wards. The service is available on a short-term basis for individuals aged 60 and over who are living in the area and require support to connect to their local community. It aims to improve wellbeing, independence and quality of life for the individual, alleviating loneliness and social isolation.

InterCare

We are supporting the work of InterCare, a charity that recycles surplus quality medicines and donates aid to African health units.

If you have any unwanted, unused medicines, please return them to the surgery and we will donate them on your behalf. You can find a list of what medicines can be donated here.

Meningitis B Vaccine

The media has recently announced that a new vaccine against Meningitis B is to be given to children. To date, we have not received any information from the Department of Health regarding when the vaccine will be available to order, or which children will be eligible to receive the vaccine. As soon as we have that information, we will plan a vaccination programme and invite those children that are eligible to be vaccinated.

   

Medication Reviews

Medication reviews are GP initiated, based on a thorough review of a patient’s record. Please book a GP medication review appointment only if requested to do so by the practice.
   

Shingles Vaccination Campaign 2014

Following last year's campaign, the practice will once again be immunising eligible patients against shingles. The shingles vaccine will be given as a single injection for anyone aged 70, 78 or 79 only. Unlike the flu jab, you'll only need to have the vaccination once.

We will be inviting all of those eligible for the vaccination to attend clinics in September.
