We offer a SMS text messaging service. We will send your results to your mobile phone as soon as they have been received in surgery. If you have had more that one test you will receive a text message per test.

SMS text service is available to all mobile phone users to remind them of their appointments. Please ask at reception for a consent slip or you can register online. Please be aware it is the patient's responsibility to inform the practice of any changes to mobile numbers. 

If you are unable to attend an appointment you can text your name and appointment details to 07754 805009 and a member of the reception team will cancel your appointment.

NAMED GP

You may be aware from April 2016 all surgeries are required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides. This is intended to continue the patient care you already receive from the practice.

Important: This does not mean that you must always see this doctor. You are free to choose to see any of the GPs at the surgery. Also your named GP may not always be available. You may need to see a different doctor if you are acutely ill. If this is the case, your continuity of care will not be affected.

Accessible Information Standard

The AIS aims to ensure people who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand. For example, in large print or braille. As well as professional communication support if they need it. A British Sign Language interpreter is an example.

The standard requires organisations that provide NHS or adult social care to:-

  1. Ask people if they have any information or communication needs, and find out how to meet their needs
  2. Record those needs clearly and in a set way - This is clearly documented as an alert within patient records at the surgery.
  3. Highlight or flag the person’s file or notes so it is clear that they have information or communication needs and how to meet those needs
  4. Share people’s information and communication needs with other providers of NHS and adult social care, when they have consent to do so. At Horton Bank Surgery this information is coded and highlighted so that communication to outside agencies, such as hospitals are clear on your specific needs.
  5. Take steps to ensure people receive information they can access and understand, and receive communication support if they need it.

InductionLoop

The Accessible Information Standard (AIS) is a new standard that must be put in place by all organisations that provide NHS or adult social care. Compliance is mandatory for all GP practices.

Successful implementation of the AIS will lead to improvements in patient satisfaction and experience, patient safety, outcomes (for example to due to earlier diagnosis and treatment) and patients’ ability to self-care and follow clinical advice.

We have an induction loop available at reception for hearing impaired patients. A hearing loop is a special kind of sound system for use by people with hearing instruments. It consists of a microphone to pick up speech, an amplifier - which processes the signal - and a loop cable which the signal is sent through. The loop cable is a wire placed around the perimeter of specific areas, such as hospitals, churches, service counters in banks or shops, meeting rooms and sometimes around the room in homes where the TV is housed. The wire then acts as an antenna, which sends speech as a magnetic signal to the hearing device.

We want to get better at communicating with our patients. We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you. If you find it hard to read our letters or if you need someone to support you at appointments, please let us know.

We want to know if you need information in braille, large print or easy read. We want to know if you need a British Sign Language interpreter or advocate.

We want to know if we can support you to lip read or use a hearing aid or communication tool.
