Reception Triage And Advanced Access
Following government guidelines
we operate a receptionist triage system which allows the receptionist,
after asking a few simple questions, to direct you to the most appropriate health
care professional for your problem. This, in turn, frees up doctors' appointments
and allows us to operate Advanced Access, ie a 10-minute appointment with a doctor
of your choice, as soon as that can be arranged.
The doctors are
happy to carry out medicals, eg insurance and driving licence, by appointment
outside surgery hours. Please telephone the surgery for an appointment. These services are outside the scope of the NHS and may therefore be chargeable. Please ask the receptionist for the current fee when booking your appointment.
Fylde And Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group
Responsibility for commissioning health services in this area lies with the above organisation (or CCG). CCG are the statutory bodies which set out the necessary plans under the aegis of the Health and Social Care Act. The Act therefore indicates how family doctors (GPs) and other clinicians decides how your local health budget is spent.
The Fylde and Wyre CCG is run by local GPs. With a budget of some £215 million a year, they aim to commission high quality, safe and effective health services to meet the needs of the local populace (over 150,000 people). The CCG can be contacted at:
