Breaking News about Priors Field Surgery

Plans are maturing for Priors Field Surgery to combine in 2019 with the Fenland Group Practice, which is currently made up of Doddington, Wimblington, Manea and Rainbow (Ramsey) surgeries.

This is in keeping with the NHS Forward View which is encouraging GP Practices to scale up to offer greater support to each other and more efficient working practices.

What does this mean for patients?

Priors Field Surgery will continue to run as stand-alone surgery with dedicated team of clinicians, while back office functions will be merged.
Future plans will involve central triage, to quickly assess patients’ needs and direct them to the most appropriate service and networking so that patients can take advantage of appointments available over all five locations.

Watch this space for more information as plans develop.

NHS Long Term Plan

As medicine advances, health needs change and society develops, the NHS has to continually move forward so that in 10 years time we have a service fit for the future.

The NHS Long Term Plan is drawn up by frontline staff, patients groups, and national experts to be ambitious but realistic.

About the NHS Long Term Plan

The NHS is one of Britain’s greatest achievements and for 70 years its dedicated staff has been there for us.

A lot has changed since it was created in 1948, and today the NHS is responding to changes in society that were never expected, let alone planned for.

The Government has announced additional funding for the NHS and this means we can plan to make the NHS fit for the future for patients, their families and our staff.

The NHS Long Term Plan will make sure the NHS has a bright future ahead of it. We know that families work hard to pay their taxes and that’s why we will make sure every penny is invested on the things that that matter most, from providing high quality lifesaving treatment and care for our patients and their families, to reducing pressure on our hard working NHS staff and investing in exciting new technologies.

Priors Field Surgery - Patient Participation Group

 

Here are some national statistics which ought to alarm the patient community…

 

A survey recently revealed that 10% of patients take up 50% of all GP appointments, and most of those patients are not unwell - they are just unhealthy!

 

Diabetes costs over 10% of the NHS budget!

 

Less than half the people eligible for the free NHS Health Check for the over 40s have taken it up!

 

These are just three of the many reasons why your PPG will continue to promote good health and well being through self-care during 2019.

 

Watch out for us on Facebook - Priors Field PPG, and see us on the surgery website -
