Noticeboard

What is GDPR?

GDPR is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed, kept safe and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data. The regulation applies from 25 May 2018. GDPR will supersede the Data Protection Act 1998 which the practice already complies with but strengthens many of it’s principle.

You can find more information on the further information tab under the heading 'GDPR'. We have all of this information displayed in the patient notice board in the practice. If you have any questions then please speak to the Practice Manager.

New Physiotherapist service - We now have two Specialist Physiotherapists based at Pathhead Medical Centre. They can be booked as an alternative to an appointment with the GP, for people with a muscle, bone or joint problem. There is no need to see the GP first.

Contact reception and they will ask you a few questions to make sure you are allocated an appointment with the most appropriate person.

MEDICATION IMPROVEMENTS - the practice is now running some prescribing improvement projects to ensure that you receive the safest and most cost-effective medications for your conditions. You will receive a letter directly if you are affected by any of these changes.

PRESCRIPTION CHANGES FROM APRIL 2017 - all prescription requests will now take 4 working days to process. Any urgent requests must go to the duty doctor.

Asthma Review

All patients with ASTHMA are encouraged to have an annual asthma check with one of our Practice Nurses.

Please bring your inhalers, and your peak flow diary if you have one to this appointment.

We will ask you how often you are wheezy - in particular at night, and if you have any triggers e.g. exercise or animals.

If you are on a regular preventer (steroid) inhaler then you will also be eligible for an annual flu vaccine.
