Welcome to The Studfall Partnership
EXTENDED ACCESS HUB FOR CORBY
From 1 April 2019 patients registered with GP surgeries in Corby will have access to up to 150 more appointments per week as NHS Corby CCG introduces a new Extended Access Hub. The additional appointments will mean patients can access General Practice services between 6.30pm and 8pm on weekdays and slots will be available at weekends, Bank Holidays and over Christmas and Easter at Woodsend Medical Centre.
Corby’s new Extended Access Hub will allow patients to book routine appointments with a GP or other healthcare professional, including GPs, nurses, physiotherapists and health care assistants, seven days a week. The service will be tailored to meet the needs of the Corby population.
To access this service, call your own GP practice where receptionists will be able to access and book evening, weekend and Bank Holiday appointments where appropriate.
Patients needing healthcare when their practice is closed should continue to call NHS 111.
PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP
WE NEED YOU.........
We would like to recruit more members to our Patient Participation Group. We meet every 2 months on a Tuesday to discuss practice issues. If you are interested in becoming a member please ring 01536 401372 and ask for Mrs Vanessa Hurling.
PRESCRIBING OF MEDICINES TO TREAT MINOR ILLNESSES IS CHANGING
NHS England has recommended that medicines for minor ailments such as colds, hay fever and mild dry skin should no longer be routinely prescribed. Please purchase these in future, with advice from a pharmacy if needed. More info is available at www.nhs.uk/OTCmedicines
ALLOCATED NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP
Your allocated named accountable GP at The Studfall Partnership is Dr S Kumar who is responsible for your care. However you can see any GP you wish to at the practice.
FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST
The Friends and Family Test (FFT) for patients is a single question survey which asks patients whether they would recommend the NHS service they have received to friends and family who need similar treatment or care.
Please take a few minutes to fill out our Friends and Family survey on the right hand side of the home screen.
Out of Hours
When the practice is closed please telephone 111 to be put through to the 111 service who will assist you. The Out of Hours 111 urgent care service is available for patients who are concerned about their health and feel they need to see a doctor when their surgery is closed. It is available Mondays to Fridays throughout the night between 6:30 pm and 8:00 am, and 24 hours a day on weekends and bank holidays.
Alternatively Corby Urgent Care Centre is open from 8am until 8pm, 7 days a week for any urgent medical needs or injuries. Their contact number is:
