Noticeboard

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.

Anyone who needs an urgent blood test will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date. 

From 19 July face coverings will still be required when entering any site of Sandhurst Group Practice, unless you are exempt. In line with official public health advice, measures remain in place across all healthcare services to protect patients, visitors and staff. 

From Monday 19th July our doors will be open again from 08:30am  

On the day appointments will be available on the telephone from 8am - we encourage everyone who is phoning for anything other than on the day GP appointments to phone after 9:30am - thank you for your understanding

Please be ready to give your Date of Birth and a SHORT description of why you require a consultation immediately you get through - this will help us deal with you quickly 

 Please note that Face Coverings & Mask Exemption Letter Requests will be refused as Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. For further information please follow  this link Face Mask Exemption Poster.

  Your local A&E is experiencing longer delays than usual, so to help us (and to avoid a long wait) we would ask that you only attend there or call 999 in a serious or life-threatening emergency.

Teenage Health

heart_and_stethoscopeMost young people will talk to parents about health and illness, but for some teenage issues like feeling depressed, contraception or bullying, they may decide to go and talk to a doctor or nurse in confidence. Sometimes this happens because it is just too embarrassing to talk to parents about sensitive and personal matters.

All children, even those under 16, can make an appointment to see their doctor or nurse without their parents’ knowledge or consent. The doctor or nurse will keep this appointment confidential as long as they are satisfied that the young person understands what is going on. There may be occasions, such as sexual or drug abuse, where the doctor is unable to keep information confidential, but they will always discuss this first and act in the best interests of the young person.

 

The Help Spot

The HELP Spot is a drop-in service, available to all young people within the Sandhurst area and is staffed by a GP, Family Planning nurse, School nurse and Youth Worker.  It is based in a dedicated room at The Spot – the youth centre adjacent to Sandhurst School.  It is open each Wednesday afternoon from 3.30 to 4.30 pm  for confidential help and advice on issues important to young people, ranging from acne and bullying to sexual health and contraception
