Noticeboard

NAMED GP

Everyone in the practice now has a named GP.  If you are unsure who yours is then please ask at reception, but please remember that you can still see whichever GP you prefer.

CCTV

Closed Circuit Television is installed at the practice premises for the purpose of staff, patient and premises security. Cameras are located at various places on the premises, and images from the camera are recorded.  The practice follows the recommendations issued by the Data Protection Commissioner in accordance with powers under Section 51 of the 1998 Data protection Act. 

Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible information standard is a new law to make sure that people who have a disability or sensory loss are given information they can easily read or understand.  Please inform us if you have any communication support needs.  

For further information about the standard and a form you can fill in to let us know if you have communication support needs in the column on the right hand side of our website under the Accessible Information heading.

We sometimes ask you to take your blood pressure yourself at home.  Often when people have their blood pressure checked at the surgery it is higher than normal.  This may be due to 'white coat hypertension', a term used to describe the effect on blood pressure caused by the anxiety of the check.  You may not be aware of this feeling but it is very common.

Taking your blood pressure at home allows us to obtain a more accurate picture of your blood pressure.  Taking a series of readings allows us to see what level your blood pressure is on average.  Blood pressure is normally very variable, however if the pressure remains high it can cause damage.

If we have asked you for a reading and you have a machine at home you can use the form below to record the results.  Remember that home machines should be calibrated regularly.
