Welcome to The Park Surgery
Welcome to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services.
We provide a comprehensive medical service to residents of Driffield and its surrounding villages from two surgeries. Our main surgery is situated in the middle of Driffield and is located within a new, purpose-built modern building . We also have a branch surgery situated at 22a High Street, Nafferton which primarily serves the people living there.
We are happy to see our patients at either of our surgeries during opening hours.
Female patients registered with our practice in the relevant age cohort (50 - 70) will shortly be invited to attend for routine breast screening. The screening will be provided in a unit located in Tesco car park.
Also there is a chance, if you are aged 47 - 49 or 71 - 73, that you may also receive an invite. Approximately half of the patients in one of these age cohorts will be invited to attend as part of a research trial which is happening in this area.
More information aabout screening and the trial are available at www.cancerscreening.nhs.uk
Friends & Family Test
All practices are required to offer this test to our patients. It is very brief and asks only 2 questions. We would be very grateful if you could take the time to please click the link on the right of this page (Friend & Family Test) and complete the test.
Summary Care record
Unless a patient has “opted out” (declined), The Park Surgery patients have their Summary Care Record held on the NHS national computer system. A Summary Care Record is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed. Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record.
We are experiencing some staffing issues at our branch surgery at Nafferton. We are trying our best to ensure it is open to our patients as much as possible however, when we are not able to provide sufficient cover to open the surgery and provide a safe service, we will have to close it. We will do our best to communicate this to our Nafferton patients. If we do need to close, we will try to ensure this is on Thursday afternoons as much as possible as this is the quietest time for patient demand. Please be assured that the main surgery will be open to help any patient who requires assistance during any closure times.
The GP2GP facility enables the electronic transfer of patient records between practices. This means that your records will be available to your new GP much quicker than previously. The Park Surgery already use this facility.
On-Line facilities to patients
You may (or may not) be aware that from 1 April 2015 general practice is contractually obliged to give patients access to a summary of their medical record, access to online appointments and the ability to order repeat medication online. We have already ‘gone live’ with this requirement.
You will be able to view your medical problems, medications, allergies and vaccination records online. However we need to ensure that we have appropriate mechanisms in place to be certain that we only give access to this information to the person it relates to. We are sure you can appreciate that it is vital that we follow the strictest security procedures! Therefore, if you wish to view your medical record online, please ask reception for the relevant form which you need to complete. You will also need to show appropriate ID so that the member of staff is absolutely certain it is the correct person requesting access. Once this process is complete, we will ensure that you can view your summary medical record online. Please note, this process applies even if you are already registered to use our online access to appointments and repeat medicines (as it is likely that you were not asked for ID verification at the time of registration).
If you have any queries about the medical information you see, please put in writing to us your concerns so that a GP can check the details.
The next scheduled practice closure is 7 October 2015.
We are pleased to advise that Dr Clare Lavery joined the practice on 15 June. Dr Lavery has been working in Scotland for the past few years.
It is with much regret that we advise that Dr Sibilski will be leaving the practice towards the end of the Summer. He will be greatly missed by all at the practice.
We welcome back our medical students who are studying for their medical degrees at the Hull & York Medical School. The practice has a strong belief in the value of training the future generation and we welcome your support in assisting us with this.
We try to make our service available to all patients regardless of disability or other special need. If you have a special need which makes it difficult for you to make the best of our services, please let us know. We will do whatever we can to make things easier.
The Park Surgery is a purpose built, modern property and has automatic doors from both the street and the car park. There are a number of dedicated disabled parking places and a lift inside the building as we do have consulting rooms on the first floor.
At the Nafferton surgery, our disabled patients are able to access the surgery entrance from the rear car park, rather than from the High Street.
We have been visited by the Care Quality Commission. To see their most recent report please click on the following link http://www.cqc.org.uk/sites/default/files/1-560665097_The_Park_Surgery_INS1-1922747602_Responsive_-_Follow_Up_28-02-2015.pdf
A drug formulary has been developed by Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust and adopted by the East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group. This document alerts GPs and nurse prescribers to the medicines which should be prescribed within our area.
