Your GP Cares (Item from the BMA)
The environment in which GPs are striving to provide services is increasingly challenging.
The burning issues are:
- An increased demand on general practice caused by demographic changes, more complex health needs and some care moving out of hospitals is all contributing to unsustainable pressures on GP services.
- Based on the current number of doctors working as GPs, and the staff who support them in the general practice team, there are simply not enough hours in the day to meet everyone’s needs.
- Practices are struggling to recruit to vacant posts in their practices and to find locum cover so that patients can still be seen if a colleague is sick or absent.
- The increasing demand and workload pressures are leading to low morale and stress causing many GPs to leave the profession or to consider early retirement.
- Many GP practice buildings are old and need investment to create more room for patients to be seen or simply to make them fit for purpose.
- GPs and their practice teams must have greater support to deliver high quality services that meet the requirements of all their local patients.

Plan to Meet GMS 2015-16 Contractual Requirement for Patient Online Services
This practice plans to offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print detailed coded information held in their own records from Monday 21st March 2016. The Practice has a strict policy in place for the granting of such access requests.
These dates are subject to the necessary NHS GP systems and software being available to the practice.
This practice currently offers the facility for patients:
• to book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online
• to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or appliances
• to view online, export or print summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and individual patient
We publicise and promote our online services to our practice’s patients through the practice website, practice waiting room l posters and the PPG Online Forum.

Public and Patient Consultation on In-hours Urgent Care Services
This survey has been compiled to collect the views of the public and patients regarding the development of a new In-hours Urgent Care (IHUC) service. By the term "In-hours", we mean that period of the day from 08:00 am to 6:30 pm, Monday to Friday. The objectives of the service will be the improvement of patient access and accompanying speed of access to on-the-day consultation, which will in turn:
- reduce footfall at the local A&E from patients who should be seen in primary care; and
- free up more GP time to concentrate on the case management of older patients and those with more complex needs, so as to reduce the number of avoidable conveyances and emergency admissions to acute hospital facilities.
We hope that you will take this opportunity to contribute to our work so that our solution is correctly tailored to reflect the views and expectations of our local population. Once developed, we aspire to test the new service in a small number of geographically close practices to prove the concept, before extending the scheme to cover the whole population of patients registered with a GP practice in the North Hampshire locality. This delivery will be affected through a single hub operating on behalf of the selected practices: when fully deployed across the locality we expect to operate the service from 3 or more hubs to minimise travel distance for patients.
The survey should only take a few minutes to complete and we appreciate you taking the time to help us get it right! Your responses will be treated in the strictest confidence; they will only be used to help shape our IHUC service offering and will not be shared with any other organisation.
