• TARGET Training Afternoons 2020

    Once a month the surgery closes on a Wednesday afternoon for training (except during August and December). These training afternoons were cancelled during April, May and June so as not to put additional pressure on 111 services whilst practices were closed and the 111 services were already extremely busy due to COVID-19. We are pleased to say that our TARGET training dates will resume from July 2020 and the practice will close on the following Wednesday afternoons from 12 o’clock; 15th July 16th September 14th October 11th November

  • Delays In Cervical Screening Results

      Have you had a cervical screening recently and not had your results yet? As you may be aware, there are currently delays for people receiving the results from their cervical screening. This is as a result of the introduction of primary HPV testing as part of the NHS cervical screening program. This should be fully implemented by 2020. Letters are usually issued within 14 days of the original sample-taking appointment, however, NHS England are aware people across England are currently experiencing longer waits. While the level of delay is unlikely to cause or increase the risk of clinical harm, NHS England advise that this should not have implications for…

  • Yorkshire Cancer Patient Forum CNS Survey

    We are keen to find out about the quality of care you have received as a cancer patient, and in particular, the role played by a clinical nurse specialist (CNS), who may also be called your keyworker or support worker or care coordinator. The CNS or keyworker plays an extremely important role in each patient’s care (often called pathway of care). They provide support through the pathway from diagnosis, to treatment and follow up and beyond including supportive care. A total of 90% of cancer patients were given the name of a CNS according to the National Cancer Patient Experience Survey for England 2016. We would like to look at…

  • Online Consultations – Public Survey

    NHS England is supporting local NHS GP practices to offer their patients alternative ways to have a consultation with a GP or other practice-based health professional online via the internet, rather than waiting for the next available appointment to attend in person – we are referring to this as ‘online consultations’. Your views are valuable to shaping the services that NHS England and GP Practices provide and we would appreciate it if you could find the time to complete this survey by Friday 15 June 2018. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

  • PARKING EYE

    As you may have noticed we have now had camera’s installed at Trinity Medical Centre in an effort to improve the car park for patients use. We currently allow users to park in the car park for 2 hours which should be more than enough for patient use, but hopefully will stop those who were abusing the car park for other means. We have already seen a huge improvement in the car park since the signs and cameras have been installed and hope our patients see this improvement also when they visit the surgery. If you would like to leave us some feedback about this change, please do so either…
