IMPORTANT PATIENT ANNOUNCEMENT
We are delighted to announce our intention to merge with Jesmond House Practice on the 1st April 2015. Patients will undoubtedly be aware of the pressures on General Practice over the last few years, that particularly affect smaller practices. With the new surgery build on the horizon we feel this offers us an exciting opportunity in terms of increased resources, skills and experience.
The same Doctors, Practice Nurses and Staff will still be part of the new Team. You will be able to see your chosen Doctor as usual. The same principles of quality and personal care will continue to be uppermost in the new partnership and our aim is to enhance services and flexibility whilst ensuring stability for our patients.
The Practices are very enthusiastic about the new partnership – we will be working closely over the next six months to integrate systems and combine processes so that when we eventually move into the new building it will cause as little disruption to patients as possible.
For us it is an opportunity to build a secure future for our two Practices. For you, it will mean a proactive Practice able to manage the challenges of the NHS and offer the best for our patients with excellent resources.
We will keep you updated regularly with any developments. In the meantime our Patient Participation Group is available for contact via the Practice if you have any concerns or comments. They will be liaising with the Practice regarding the proposed merger at their regular PPG Meetings.
Friends and Family Test
Would you recommend us to your friends and family?
From 1st December you will be able to provide anonymous feedback regarding your experiences of the practice in the form of the NHS Friends and Family Test. This is a survey that all GP practices across the country are carrying out and will help us find out if we are doing well or learn if we are not.
The results will be published on the NHS choices website www.nhs.uk.
Complete the survey under the Have your Say section of our website or complete a paper form when you are next in the surgery.
We look forward to hearing your feedback.
We have recently launched additional online services via the SystmOnline platform. SystmOnline allows you to book GP appointments, see and request your repeat prescriptions, update your contact details and much more. Call into the surgery with ID to collect your password or click here for further information.

The practice building was designed to help people with disabilities. There is easy access for wheelchairs and none of the areas for patient use have steps. The toilet is easily accessed. A hearing loop is available for the hard of hearing. Please ask at reception.
We have limited parking space at the surgery (found behind the surgery off Watledge Close) and would like to keep this available as far as possible for elderly and disabled patients. Please help us to do this by using nearby streets or car parks as much as possible.
Tewkesbury Health Care Project

Our aim is to provide all of our patients with the best care possible in one modern centre. To find out the full details, click here http://www.tewkesburysurgeries.org/
