Local opticians will see patients with minor eye symptoms – please see the attached booklet for a list of participating opticians and the common eye problems they will see. Please note, you will need to advise them that you have been referred to the service by your GP to access this free of charge.
Please see the enclosed update on our forthcoming collaboration with Ash Trees. Although not merging the contracts, this development offers opportunities to our clinical teams to alter their working arrangements and the attached letter explains how these teams will be made up.
Any change is unsettling, but our intention is always to facilitate necessary transitions as smoothly as possible and good patient care remains our main focus.
New test messaging service and MyGP app
We have recently changed our text messaging service provider so you may notice that your text reminders are a little different, but hopefully not too different! This new service not only provides patient text reminders and the ability to cancel appointments via text, but also a new ‘myGP’ app. The app allows you to book, view available appointments and cancel appts on the move. It will also direct you to Patient Access to order your repeat prescriptions when on the move. One of the benefits of the app is that it enables parents of younger children to be able to create a ‘family’ and this will allow parents to book and cancel any of their children’s appointments.
You will find the link to the app here, why not sign up today:
