Clinical IT System Migration
We're upgrading our electronic patient record system during September 2016. From mid August we will be issuing 2 months worth of medication for most repeat prescriptions requested during the change over. Thank you for your patience whilst we carry out this vital upgrade.
If you do require urgent medical care at any time when the surgery is closed, please call 111 to speak to an adviser at NHS 111. If your call is an emergency, call 999.
Emergency Medication Supply Service
From 9.00am until 6.00pm on Monday 25th July 2016 and through until 6.00pm on Friday 2nd September pharmacists working in participating pharmacies during normal pharmacy opening hours will be able to supply a sufficient quantity of medication to visitors to the area, to cover their duration of stay in Cornwall.
Please note that the in-hours extension is not available to local patients as surgeries remain open and accessible for repeat prescriptions. Local patients can however access the service out of hours if necessary when pharmacies are open, e.g. August Bank Holiday Weekend.
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 'Have Your Say - Friends & Family Survey' tab at the right of the page.
To improve our service to you we are changing our clinical system to a more up to date system. This should mean we operate faster and can give more of that time back to you.
From mid August 2016 we will be issuing 2 months prescriptions for every repeat requested to cover us during the change over.
We are hoping to be back to normal if not better by October 2016.
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.

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
The average pay for GPs working in The Three Spires Medical Practice in the last financial year was £51,275 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 3 full-time, 6 part-time and 3 part-time assistant GPs.
