Accessible Information Standard

PREFERRED METHOD OF CONTACT

 

All organisations that provide NHS services, or publicly funded adult social care must have fully implemented and conformed to the Accessible Information Standard (1605) by 31st July 2016. This means we would like to record your preferred method of contact so that you can receive your health information in a format you can understand.

 

For most of us our preferred method of contact is our home number or mobile number but for example, if you suffer from hard of hearing or blindness that may not be suitable for you. If you or someone you are caring for wishes us to contact you in another way, please do let us know by informing reception at the surgery.   We will then record your needs by highlighting it on your medical records.

Access to your GP Surgery is changing

The local CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) are consulting on a proposed new model for Primary Care developed by our GPs to improve access to GP services in East Lancashire. After initial feedback from our patients, our vision is for same day access, 8am-8pm 7 days a week to a GP wherever you are in East Lancashire. This consultation is about the principles of delivering extended GP access for you. The CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) would like to hear what you think.  Please click here for more information and to complete a short survey. We strongly encourage our patients to complete this survey and help shape the future of primary care.
