COVID-19

Dear patients

We regret that we have to share this.

Unfortunately, over the last 2 months we have noticed increasing incidences of verbal aggression and disrespect towards staff, both on the phone and at the front door.

We appreciate how difficult life is at the moment and understand the frustration when the phone lines are so busy. We share this frustration.

However, our staff are working exceptionally hard to provide your healthcare needs under very difficult circumstances, which are set to worsen over winter with the 2nd COVID wave.

We are now enforcing a Zero Tolerance policy.
We will end phone calls for verbal aggression and call the police for aggression at the front door.
We endeavour to be kind and courteous to all patients, and we expect the same treatment in return.

We hope you understand that we need to protect our staff through these unprecedented times.
It is by working together as a practice with our patients that we will come through this testing period. 

Which service, when?

Inappropriate A+E attendances for problems that are neither emergencies nor related to acute injuries from accidents, cause delay in assessment for those who have genuine need. NHS Sheffield is keen to help you choose the right service for your needs at the time, i.e "the right place at the right time". That might be, self-care, pharmacist advice, walk-in-centre, GP (including urgent access as at Crystal Peaks MC),or out of hours GP service. In order to facilitate that, there is some guidance available in our further information list. Please help by accessing the right service at the right time. This is especially important in the winter months when the health service is under additional pressure.Thank you

 

 

HGV/PCV Medicals- £99!

We have reduced our price for Heavy Goods Vehicle and Passenger Carrying Vehicle examinations. We believe there are advantages to having your registered medical practice carrying out these medicals as we have full access to your medical record, if there are any queries and we can rapidly arrange any further tests that may become necessary. Please contact reception to arrange an appointment.

 

Dr Davison undertakes Minor Surgery sessions. There are approximately one per month. You may see any Dr to discuss any medical condition, but if minor surgery is suggested and you wish to proceed, sometimes you may be asked to see Dr Davison, to discuss the matter in more detail, before proceeding.

Please note that funding for "cosmetic" surgery is extremely limited and generally only granted if their are special circumstances, following an appeal to the Individual Funding Requests Panel, of the CCG. Therefore, skin tags blemishes and moles, which are not causing functional impairment, or are not considered pathological, cannot be removed on the NHS.

Some of the typical operations that are undertaken are as follows:

-Ingrowing toenails
-Sebaceous cysts
-Incision and drainage of abscesses (tends to be done ad-hoc as they present, unless they are too large to manage under local anaethetic)
-Lipomas, where causing functional impairment
-Punch biopsies to clarify diagnosis
-Shave excision of seborrhoeic warts, where causing functional problem
-Suspected dysplastic naevi (not suspected melanomas, which are referred to a Dermatologist)
-In severe cases, where medical treatment has failed and there are e.g. occupational implications, curettage of warts.

Additionally, cryotherapy to warts and seborrhoeic warts and skin tags may be offered in normal surgery appointments, in selected cases, if appropriate- by Dr Davison and Dr Andrzrejowski
