Education for Doctors
On the second Wednesday afternoon of every month the Doctors will be partaking in mandatory education sessions to keep their knowledge up to date. As a result there will be limited capacity for appointments on these afternoons.
Please bear this in mind when booking appointments
Out Of Hours - when we are closed
If you need medical help when the surgery is closed, please call 111. NHS 111 is a telephone advice line and signposting service for patients with urgent health problems, but which do not need a call to 999. After assessment by a 111 health advisor, if you need immediate medical care they can arrange for you to talk to a clinical advisor, see a Doctor, or go to an appropriate alternative health care service.
This direct number to the out of hours service operates between 6.30pm and 8am weekdays and at all times over the weekend and bank holidays. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landline and mobile phones (this number will only work outside the surgery opening hours).
BANK HOLIDAY CLOSING
The Surgery is closed on all Statutory Bank Holidays
Retirement of Dr Graham Deakin
After over 30 years working as a GP in Stoke Gifford and Filton, Dr Graham Deakin retired from the practice at the end of March 2014. Having been a part of the surgery, virtually since it began and “senior” partner for over 28 years.
Dr Deakin said “I have had the privilege of working with a great number of doctors, nurses and support staff over the years who have all contributed to making the practice what it is. I have had the opportunity to know many patients over very many years and to have helped support them through many life experiences. Some of these experiences have been sad or difficult, but some have been joyful such as new babies, triumph over ill heath or progress through difficult times. I am sorry that I have been unable to personally say “goodbye” to many of the patients who I have known for so many years, but I wish you all well and thank you for the opportunity to serve you over these past years”
IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE RE EMAIL SCAM
We have been advised by colleagues in Cornwall that bogus e-mails have been sent to members of the public which purport to come from NICE.
The subject line of the e-mail reads ‘IMPORTANT: Complete blood count (CBC)result’ and goes on to say that the recipient of the e-mail may have cancer. This is a particularly nasty way to panic people into clicking on links which they would not if they know the true circumstances.
Please ignore and delete this email and do not click on any links. The nature of the scam at this stage is not known other than it could well cause alarm and stress to those receiving it.
We are a friendly, forward looking medical practice providing the highest standard of medical care delivered by a supportive team who are sensitive to the needs of the whole person.
