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.
Flu season is well underway. If you are aged over 65 or are under 65 with a condition that qualifies you for a free flu vaccination on the NHS, please contact us as soon as possible to make an appointment. Most eligible patients have already attended for their flu vaccination and over 85% of our available flu vaccine has been used - make your appointment now to ensure you get your vaccine!
As you will know Bird Flu has been confirmed within our area. Public Health England are the body responsible for coordinating and organising the response to this situation. Current advice is that there is little risk to human health and we have been told to carry on as normal (ie no additional precautions are to be taken with regards to humans). The situation will be reviewed nationally throughout the day and if any changes are made, we will update this website accordingly.
Dr Susan Dale retired from the practice at the end of May after being here for over 20 years. We wish her a long and happy retirement.
Dr Jorge Alegria Valencia decided to leave the practice to go and work in another area. He left us on 22 August 2014.
Dr Adam Hearn joined the practice on 6 August 2014 as a full time, permanent GP.
Dr Matthew de Hoest joined us as a GP Registrar in August. He is in his final year of training as a GP and will be with us for one year.
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.
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
Plans are currently being developed which will enable patients to be able to access their summary health information on-line by 31 March 2015 and we will also provide an opportunity for patient feedback. Currently patients are able to book and cancel GP appointments and order repeat medication on-line. You need to register to use this service. Please ask at reception for further details.
The next scheduled practice closure is 22 January 2015.
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 were visited by the Care Quality Commission on 2 July 2013. The CQC assessed five of the sixteen outcomes. To see the report please click on the following link http://www.cqc.org.uk/directory/1-199694192.
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.
