YOU PROVIDE A LETTER OF AUTHORITY FROM THE PATIENT ALONG WITH A COPY OF ID FOR BOTH THE PATIENT AND YOURSELF.

 

Proposed changes to the out of hours service

Coastal Health GP Services (CHGPS) is a federation limited company formed by the seven GP practices in Christchurch and one in Southbourne (Marine & Oakridge).  They are currently working together to consider the potential for an extended, local, out of hours services, operating from 17:00-20:00 Monday to Friday and 08:00 to 20:00 at the weekend and bank holidays.  The service will be GP-led and would complement the existing ‘111’ service during these hours.  This initiative will not affect the usual in-hours services already provided by your practice.

Your surgery would appreciate your views on the possibility of this service and the following link will take you to a survey which they hope you might complete  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CoastalQaire

There is also a patient event for anyone who would like to attend to discuss this proposal with local GPs and management at St Joseph’s Church Hall, Purewell, on Thursday 3 March 2-4pm.

 

Do you know who your named GP is?

Please contact our reception team who will be happy to advise.

Friends and Family Test

Would you recommend us? Every patient now has the opportunity to provide us with feedback on their experiences with us….whether your contact with us was for a consultation, repeat prescription or simply a call to get some assistance from our Reception staff.

We have made it very easy to provide us with feedback…the Friends and Family Test is available in paper form from the surgery, through our on-site iPad unit (in the waiting room), or through a web-link for the surgery: www.leavemyfeedback.com/4618.

Whatever the method you use, there are very few questions, and we would appreciate you taking a minute to give us some valuable feedback. Thank you.
