Practice Notice September 2017
Dr Scott will be leaving the practice at the end of September to develop other professional interests. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours. We have appointed Dr Mark Stephen to replace his hours.
I have greatly valued the 17 years that I have been here. Working with the patients and staff here has been an absolute privilege, and it is with mixed feelings that I move on. I wish to thank everybody for making my time here so memorable. Oliver Scott

Self-monitoring Blood Pressure & Scales at Wadebridge
Patients are able to call in at the Wadebridge surgery at a time convenient to them to monitor their own blood pressure and weight. Patients can take the results to the receptionist who will confirm the patient details and pass the result to a nurse to record or patients who have an appointment can take the results into their appointment for recording.
Patient Participation Group
We are keen to recruit more members to our Patient Participation Group (PPG) to represent the patient community.
The PPG will discuss issues affecting the practice, provide positive inputs to the service, facilities and quality of patient care offered by the practice and also contribute to the wider local healthcare needs of the community.
The group meets approximately 4 times a year, please ask at the practice for the next date.
If you would like to join the group or learn more please ask the receptionist for an information leaflet or down load here:

Care.Data – Patient Information
The Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has been commissioned under the Health and Social Care Act 2012 to extract data from GP practices and other care settings.
The data to be extracted from GP systems for care.data includes information such as family history, vaccinations, diagnoses, referrals, values (such as blood pressure) and all NHS prescriptions.
Patients will be identified by using their date of birth, postcode, NHS number and gender. This information is required to link the GP data to data from other care settings in order to analyse patient care across pathways.
Practices cannot opt out, but individual patients have opt out choices. Patients can change their mind at any time.
To find out more information go to Care.Data in the ‘Further Information’ section of this website or to http://www.england.nhs.uk/ourwork/tsd/care-data/
