Welcome to Prospect Medical Group
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Named Accountable GP
From 1st April 2015, as part of our GMS contract, we as a practice are required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all of our patients, including children. When you are next at reception or contact us by telephone please ask who your named GP is, the receptionist will be able to give you this information. If you wish to change the name of your named, accountable GP to another GP we will do our best to accommodate your request. Please be aware that this does not restrict you to that named GP, you are free to see whichever GP you wish.
Extract of Fit Note Information
The Department of Health has advised us that at the end of January they will begin extracting information on Fit Notes (formerly called Sick Notes) from the patient medical records. This information will be anonymised so individuals will not be identified. The data is being collected on behalf of the Department for Works and Pensions to:
- Undertake research analysis to inform policy relating to employment and sickness absence, including evaluation of the Fit for Work programme.
- Help identify geographic level differences in return to work so that national and local providers can respond to provide appropriate services.
The surgery has no power to prevent this data extraction which will be retrospective to December 2014 and will continue until August 2018. Individuals may, however, opt out. Further information is available on the Care Data tab or by contacting the surgery.
WHEELCHAIR ACCESS IS AVAILABLE FOR DISABLED VISITORS
