Networking with other GP Practices
There are currently 37 GP practices in Greater Huddersfield serving a registered population of around 247,000 patients. The 37 practices are divided into 7 networks to encourage partnership working. Network practices actively work together to help develop services for the community allowing patients to access services whether they are registered with a large or small practice. This will deliver a more equitable service, achieving better health outcomes for patients.
The Waterloo Practice is a member of the Tolson Care Partnership Primary Care Network which includes the following surgeries:
- Almondbury Surgery
- Dalton Surgery
- Greenhead Family Doctors
- Junction Surgery
- Rose Medical Practice
- The University Medical Centre
- The Whitehouse Centre
Our patients no longer need a pharmacy nomination for prescriptions to go electronically to a pharmacy
We are delighted that we have been chosen to pilot the new electronic service where you will take an unsigned token that we give you to any pharmacy. The pharmacy will dispense your medication after scanning the bar code on the token. This is one of the many moves by the NHS to help reduce inefficiencies and provide safer prescribing.
Dr Hassan will be taking maternity leave from the beginning of June
From the beginning of June Dr Hassan will be taking maternity leave. We welcome Dr Naheed Anwar to the practice to cover her absence. Dr Anwar has been working with us for the past few months on a Friday afternoon so is familiar with the practice.
Electronic Repeat Dispensing for Eligible Patients
Our practice is collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) who is providing NHS numbers for those patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to NHSBSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients as part of our medication review process to explain the benefits of this service.
Patient Feedback - Good and Bad!
From 1st December 2014 we are participating in the national NHS Friends and Family Test which invites you to provide feedback on the services you have experienced at the Practice. We want to know about the good things that we have done so we know what is important to you and should not change. We also want your feedback about things that you feel need to be improved and we will see if we can do anything about those.
The results of your feedback from January 2015 onwards will be published nationally. It doesn't take long and you don't need to provide your details.
Look for details in reception or you can ask a member of staff how to take part. More information is available via www.nhs.uk/friendsandfamily.
Our Friends and Family Test can be accessed using the "Patient Survey" link on the homepage or click here.
Order your repeat prescriptions safely via this website. Ask at reception.
