Walk in Centre

 

NHS 111

The NHS 111 service is if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation. NHS 111 will direct you to the service that best suits your needs, this could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist. If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will immediately arrange for one to be sent to you. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from land lines and mobile phones.

 

Accident and Emergency Department

A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness
  • acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

Friends and Family Test

From the 1st December 2014, it will be a contractual requirement that all GP Practices undertake the NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT). The FFT is a feedback tool that supports the fundimental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience that can be used to improve services. It is not a traditional survey. It is a continuous feedback loop between patients and practices.

It is NHS Englands intention to be as flexible and inclusive as possible, while creating as low a burden as possible on practices and on patients who want to provide feedback. 

From January 2015 results of this survey will be published nationally on the NHS Choices website and here on our own website and in our waiting room along with information on what actions we have taken as a result of your comments.

Please click HERE to complete the survey.
