Dermatology comes to Three Spires !
After months of negotiation we are very pleased to announce that we have secured a 4 month pilot contract, with RCHT, for 2 week wait skin cancer clinics.
We will be running these clinics here in the minor ops suite with two consultant dermatologist - Dr Tom Luke and Dr Samantha Hann. Joining the consultants will be our own Dr Black and Dr Sandy Anderson who is a GP with special interest from Mullion.
Most clinics will have a GP and consultant working side by side seeing a total of 30 patients in a session. The appointments will be made by Treliske and the patients will come from all over the county.
Assisting the clinicians will be ours and Lander's Practice Nurses and HCAs. The clinics will run on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Joining the team will be a very experienced Dermatology Nurse, Jo Pope who will be here to train our team on a temporary basis.
The clinics started on Monday 19th January.
Patient Participation group news
Earlier this year, the surgery together with our Patient Participation Group surveyed our patients with regards to any improvements we could make in the services we provide. See the results of that survey here:
Patient Survey (PPG) 2014-15.docx
FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST
From the 1st December 2014 all GP practices are required to ask patients the Friends & Family test questions that will be monitored by NHS England on a monthly basis. The two questions are as follows:
How likely are you to recommend our GP Surgery to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?
Can you tell us why you gave that response?
Please let us know how we are doing and answer these questions by clicking on the 'Friends & Family Survey' tab at the right of the page.
See the page on Car Parking in Further Information for details on parking rules.
BETTER INFORMATION MEANS BETTER CARE - The Care Data programme has been postponed for six months to give patients more time to learn about the benefits of sharing information and their right to object to their information being shared. Please see 'Care Data' of the Further Information section on this website for more details.
There is a document entitled 'Your Medical Record and The NHS' which explains the different ways in which the NHS may use your data. A copy can be found by clicking below.
NHS Use of Patient Information
See the further Information list to the right for details of our Free NHS Health Checks (for over 40s) and the NHS electronic prescription service.
See the the Clinics & Services section for details of our Minor Illness Clinic which is to be held on Mondays and run by our Nurse Practioner. Also, we have a surgery at Sainsburys, please telephone to make an appointment.
The practice is offering a free text messaging service. If you wish to receive appointment reminders, please make sure we have your mobile number (you can advise us of this in the change of address form online). We will be trialling a few specific clinics to start with and if this is successful we hope to include all appointments in the future.
The Three Spires Medical Practice provides General Practice GP medical services from a brand new purpose built surgery in the Truro Health Park for the people of Truro and the surrounding area. The doctors, nurses and staff take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centered health care. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery including vasectomies (see Further Information for details), childhood vaccinations, contraception, well-person check-ups and specialist Musculo-skeletal (MSK) clinics. In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
Three Spires Medical Practice and Lander Medical Practice have agreed to work closely together where this benefits both practices and their patients. We value our own identities and will continue to work as independent partnerships, but believe that through collaboration rather than competition, we stand the best chance of protecting existing services for our patients, and developing new ones in their interest.
For urgent care when the Surgery is closed, please dial 111 to speak to NHS 111. If your call is an emergency, please call 999.
