NHSquicker

People across Devon and Cornwall can now download a free app which gives them information about waiting and travel times for their local urgent NHS services.

The app, NHSquicker, shows up-to-date waiting times for local emergency departments (A&Es) and minor injuries units, based on the user’s location.

It also shows live travel times to help people make informed decisions about where to go when they are in need of urgent treatment for a minor injury or illness.  

People can also use NHSquicker to find information about less urgent NHS services, such as GPs, pharmacies, sexual health services, dentists and opticians.   

NHSquicker is available for smartphones and tablets, on Apple and Android

The app has been launched by the Health and Care IMPACT Network, a collaboration between the NHS across Devon and Cornwall and academics from the University of Exeter.

The launch comes at a time when doctors are urging people to consider using another urgent care service, if the issue is not serious or life-threatening, rather than an emergency department, as hospitals become busier through the winter months.

GP Online

If you are registered with our surgery did you know you can:

  • access all blood results saving a telephone call to the practice
  • order repeat prescriptions, and change pharmacy if wish
  • book, and cancel, GP appointments
  • view your summary care record – this is the information that health professionals access if you’re seen “out of hours in hospital or another site”
  • access details of vaccinations you’ve received through viewing your detailed coded record – will assist you when filling out forms and saving you a call to the practice

 Click here for further details.

 

** Be Aware **

We'd like to inform you of the change you will face should you sign up to any payable online GP services that have recently been advertised on television (e.g. www.pushdoctor.co.uk).  This is different to the online access registration service that we offer at Bramblehaies Surgery.

These companies act as a GP practice and offer online GP consultations, prescription services and more.

Should you opt in and register on any of these websites it will trigger a new practice registration with NHS England. This, in turn will de-register/deduct you as a patient at Bramblehaies Surgery.

This will mean that any service (consultation, prescription etc) notes that are recorded will not be transferred to your current patient record at the practice.

Please ensure to check their terms and conditions prior to accepting any agreement.

Let your friends and family know.

Vaccination News

Following a global shortage of Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccinations supplies are expected to improve in 2018.  Supply will remain constrained due to backlog demand and will initially be available for those at highest immediate risk.  Please contact the surgery for further information.
