Latest Practice News: IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
CHANGES TO SURGERY OPENING TIMES
Staffa Health provides a high degree of choice to our patients in terms of:
- Type of clinician
- Clinicians with specialities
- Time of the day
- Day of the week
- On-the-day appointments to meet urgent needs
- Ability to book ahead
- Access to other professionals e.g. physiotherapist, talking therapies, wellbeing worker, other specialists etc.
Operating in this way over our four sites and providing effective and efficient cover is challenging and is becoming more challenging in these times of ever increasing pressures on the NHS.
Demand for General Practice services continues to increase at a time when funding isn’t keeping pace.
It is now necessary to review the way we provide services to reflect these growing challenges and we have been looking at ways in which we can make our service more responsive and more effective.
This review has resulted in the need to adjust our opening hours at Pilsley and Stonebroom surgeries. We believe that consolidating services will allow us to deliver them in a better way for the good of all our patients and quality of your care.
What changes are necessary?
Pilsley surgery will close at 12.30pm on a Tuesday, reopening at 08.30am on Wednesday.
Stonebroom surgery will close at 1.00pm on a Friday, reopening at 08.00am on Monday.
The changes will come into effect on the 1st February 2017.
We will still provide services to registered patients from four locations.
This proposal has been agreed with Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) who commission and manage our contract with the NHS.
