NEWS & NOTICES

21st May 2018             General Data Protection Regulations 2018 Privacy Notice for patients

 

These new regulations come into force on 25 May 2018 and it is important that all patients are made aware of them. Further information can be viewed here or you can ask at reception for a copy of this Data Protection Privacy Notice.

 

17th May 2018            Overdue your smear? Drop-in clinic

If you are overdue your smear we are holding a drop in clinic at Chilwell Meadows Surgery on Tuesday 26th June 4pm-7pm. There is no need to book an appointment - just turn up!

 

26th April 2018            Registration of new patients

Due to the number of patients who have recently registered with our practice we regret that the decision has been taken to close our list to new registrations.

 

In the last few days we have taken on many new patients but in order to continue to offer a safe level of care and acceptable access to our existing patients we have unfortunately had to take this action.

 

We have been granted permission from Nottingham West CCG and NHS England to close our list and having taken this action we are not permitted to accept any more new registrations.  Neither our Doctors or our staff have any discretion in this so this is non negotiable. The only permitted exceptions are newborn babies to existing patients and family moving into the same household as existing patients.  

 

Other practices in the area are still accepting new patients with no limit to numbers.  If you need help to find a new practice or have any other registration query please contact the Nottingham West CCG Patient Experience Team on 0800 028 3693 (option 2) during office hours or email nnestccg.pet@nhs.net.

8th March 2016           Friends and family test

 

When you visit the surgery you have the opportunity to give us feedback on whether you would recommend us as a surgery. We have forms you can complete at Reception or online (see the homepage of this website). The question is: "How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they need similar care or treatment?". The results for the year 2015 are as follows :

Extremely likely                       85%

Likely                                           6%

Neither likely nor unlikely       5%

Unlikely                                       0%

Extremely unlikely                    4%

 

3rd March 2016          CQC inspection rates Chilwell Valley and Meadows Surgeries as ‘OUTSTANDING’

 

We are very proud to have been rated as ‘outstanding’ by the CQC inspection that took place last October. As a surgery we pride ourselves on the service we offer our patients and are very pleased this has been recognised by the CQC.

We are starting this new service 11th January 2016.

You will receive a confirmation text one week before your appointment and another a day before.

Please let us know!  If you do not wish to receive text reminders you are able to opt out – please inform Reception.
