We've just finished watching BBC Panorama, this weeks story was about the UK's biggest GP chain. We want to be clear about the things that we do, that are different from the practice portrayed in the programme
* Everyday we have at least 2 GP's on site, some days we have 5
* Where possible we have employed GP's, at the moment we have 2 permanent GP's (Dr's Flynn and Dr Dullehan) as well as Dr Gor, Dr Kilroy and Dr Mather (Partners) on site each week seeing patients
* Our nurse team are very competent and led by Sister Michelle Adshead, a very experienced Practice Nurse, excels in care of chronic disease management, diabetes, COPD, sexual health, baby and childhood immunisations. We have our Trainee Nurse Assistant Emma (an experienced HCA who is now progressing her career with us), and our wonderful HCA Sue
* we always have one Doctor trainee, currently Dr Nagle, (who is already a qualified Doctor but gaining additional General Practice experience). The trainee is supervised every day by a GP. All of our clinical staff are always able to refer to a GP for advice if required.
* we have never had 1000's of letters waiting for a GP to see them.
* Our reception team are trained to signpost you to the right service and organisation for your needs, they have training from our clinical team in order to do this.
* Our duty doctor is always on site in case of an emergency.
We hope this gives you confidence that the practice on the programme, in our experience, is an exception not the kind of practice that you are patients of. We are a small business led by our Partners, who are all GP's, and have been collectively partners at Chadsfield for over 35 years. Please do not be concerned about Chadsfield and our team of committed Doctors and staff

Elective Care in Greater Manchester (26/1/22)

Hospitals in Greater Manchester are starting to resume non-urgent surgery and appointments following a two week pause due to pressures caused by the Omicron variant.

If your appointment or surgery was postponed, please wait to hear from the hospital about when you will be rescheduled. Your GP practice doesn’t have this information.

 

Hospitals will initially focus on day case surgery, where patients don’t need an overnight stay. Restarting other services will be a gradual process as the situation continues to improve over the next few weeks.

If you are currently waiting, you may find it useful to visit whileyouwait.org.uk. Here you will find some information and advice on how best to look after your mental and physical health during this time

The Cheshire and Stockport Breast Screening service

"Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are not able to offer self referral appointments at the moment. As there is a large backlog of women needing screening, Public Health England has made the decision units will only screen women in the routine screening age (50 to their 71st birthday). This situation is likely to continue for the foreseeable future."
