March News!!

We are excited to announce that, thanks to some successful grant applications we have been able to secure some exciting new equipment for the surgery and our patients!

In the forthcoming few weeks we are to receive the following new equipment- a new automated BP machine, A FeNo machine - this machine is used to calculate the inflammation in your airways - it is a brilliant tool in the diagnosis and management of Asthma and last but not least we are excited to be getting a Surgery POD- this innovative piece of equipment will take pride of place in our reception area, and will enable patients to walk in and have such measurements as a BP and weight taken via the self service 'pod'. 

 

Our new improved CQC rating is in! .

We are very proud to announce that our CQC rating has improved and although we know we still have improvements to make we are extremely happy that the hard work we have been putting in is paying off.

We recognise that recent months have been challenging, and we have been striving hard to address the difficulties we have faced, but we are now in a much better place and will be able to reflect this in the care we provide. We are continuing to work with the CQC and will continue to work hard to improve .

We hope that our patients are reassured that our absolute focus remains on their care, and we will continue to work with the CCG to identify what further actions may be required, and what further steps we may need to take in the interests of patients and staff.
