PROBLEMS- Standards of facilities especially in light of CQC Standards of clinical care offered in facility LITTLE WEIGHTON BRANCH SURGERY DOES NOT MEET CURRENT REQUIREMENTS Poor access Not DDA compliant Limited equipment to deal with emergency situations- no oxygen/nebuliser/ECG machine Confidentiality concerns Difficult to comply with good practice such as offering chaperone
20715 patients registered with the practice 611 patient registered in Little Weighton Only ¼ of Little Weighton patients have used the service in the last 12 months Of the 150 patients who have used Little Weighton Surgery ¾ of their total appointments have been at South Cave or Brough Surgery 406 appointments at LW 95006 appointments offered over the entire practice in the last 12 months- Appointments
We are committed to providing a high quality of care and NHS England commissions us to provide a full range of General medical services which requires access to the wider team and facilities chaperones – HCAs, NP, PNs, Counsellors, Minor surgery, retinal screening, pharmacy advisors CQC assesses us on how we meet the requirements for a high quality of care The Disability Discrimination Act demands that we comply with statutory legislation Quality of care
We are trying to recruit new clinicians at the time of a National GP recruitment crisis and a squeeze on funding We need to concentrate our resources to maximise benefit to our whole patient population we have several rural villages in our area We currently have 10 Full time equivalent GPs and 2 Full time equivalent nurse practitioners but in 2014 we have lost Drs Hart and Lyons and two salaried doctors in 2014 and we are stretched We need there to be a realistic expectation of what we can deliver to all of our patients – 8am-8pm 7 days a week is coming but no new staff (everyone can’t work longer than their current 12 hour days) There is a complaints culture – increasing complaints from non- LW patients about access to appointments with our reducing resource of personnel Sustainability of existing services
