Patient Participation Group AGM

Tuesday 7th September 2021 at 10.00am

Notice is given that the Annual General Meeting of the Patient Participation Group will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams on Tuesday 7th September 2021 via the internet as we are still unable to hold the meeting face to face due to the staged removal of restrictions on NHS premises as a result of Covid 19.

Patients of the Practice are invited to attend and should you wish to join the meeting we would ask you to contact Rachel Hurst, Patient Services Manager via e mail moorland.med@nhs.net

so that you can be invited to the meeting via email.

 

All Staff at Moorland Medical Centre work hard to provide an excellent service to our patients

 

We are not here to suffer physical, or verbal abuse from patients, their relatives or members of the Public.

 

This practice operates a zero-tolerance policy with regards to violence or abuse. ANY patient or their relative who use threatening or offensive behaviour, either verbal or physical, in person or via the telephone or social media could be removed from the practice in order to protect our staff and other patients.

New Patient Registration

To register with the practice you must live within the practice boundary. If you are new to the area we can register you immediately. If you wish to transfer from another doctor's surgery in the area we would need further information from you.

To register please visit reception and fill in a registration form. It would be helpful if you could bring with you your NHS card or number. You will be registered with the practice rather than an individual GP and may see any of the doctors. You can express a preference for which doctor you wish to register with and if possible we will register you with that doctor. You can express a preference of which practitioner you wish to see and if possible the practice will arrange this.

As part of the registration procedure you will be asked to attend an appointment with a Health Care Support Worker or Practice Nurse for a new patient check. This enables us to ensure we have the correct details and to be aware of any current medical problems or medications. You can only register with us if you agree to attend this appointment. Usually it should be within one month of wishing to register with the practice.

All staff within the National Health Service have the right to work without being subjected to violent, abusive or threatening behaviour. The practice will not tolerate violent or abusive or drunken behaviour towards any staff members or other patients. The practice reserves the right to remove these individuals from the practice list. If necessary we will also call for Police assistance.
