Dementia Friendly GP Surgery

The Friarsgate practice is pleased to announce that it has implemented changes within the surgery to improve support for the care of people with dementia and their carers and so has been awarded the title of dementia friendly GP surgery.

Important information regarding the Winchester Primary Care HUB

You may have seen some publicity regarding a new service that started on the 2nd October 2017 called The Winchester Primary Care Access HUB.

The Winchester Primary Care Access HUB is a Clinical Commissioning Group initiative being delivered by Mid Hampshire Healthcare.

The HUB will operate from bases in both Andover and Winchester. The Winchester HUB will be located at the Badger Farm Surgery but, is completely independent from the Friarsgate Practice and is simply renting space from the practice.

Patients will be able to book appointments at the HUB via their own GP practices 2 weeks in advance. The service will be GP led but, supported by Nurse practitioners and Health Care assistants. Patients will need to contact their own GP surgery to obtain any information about their appointments. The Friarsgate Practice has no access to the HUB computer systems and so can only access information regarding our own patients.

The HUB will be operational from 5-8pm Monday to Friday, 8am-4pm on Saturdays and 8am- 12noon on Sundays.

Infection Control Annual Statement

This annual statement will be generated each year in May in accordance with the requirements of The Health and Social Care Act 2008 Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance.

Patient Warning

Please be advised there is currently a global shortage of Hepatitis A & Hepatitis B Vaccines.

Clinicians are being advised by Public Health England to act responsibly in light of this situation and to prioritise vaccines for those most at risk, this ensures that any further spread of the disease is prevented and/or minimised.

The above action may result in patients being advised to delay or defer immunisation schedules or booster doses, particularly those who are being immunised for travel health reasons.

We hope our patients will work with the practice to ensure the best possible care for all those in the Winchester area.

Healthwatch Hampshire

Healthwatch is the new independent consumer champion created to gather and represent the views of the public. It exists in two distinct forms – local Healthwatch and Healthwatch England, at national level. The aim of local Healthwatch is to give citizens and communities a stronger voice to influence and challenge how health and social care services are provided within their locality.

Local Healthwatch has taken on the work of the Local Involvement Networks (LINks) and also:

  • represents the views and experiences of people who use services, carers and the public on the Health and Wellbeing Boards set up by local authorities
  • provides information and signposting to people about local health and care services, how to access them and how to find their way round the system
  • reports concerns about the quality of health and social care services to Healthwatch England, which can then recommend that the Care Quality Commission take action
