Changes to Our Telephone Lines
TELEPHONE IMPROVEMENTS We have undergone an important upgrade to our Telephone system, which should improve access to the Surgery. As well as improving access to our main telephone line (01670 513657) we now have two dedicate lines:-
- Dedicated Prescription Line (01670 501322)
- Dedicated Line to Our Dispensary (01670 501323) (This is for Dispensing queries only and is not for ordering prescriptions).
Patients with Type 2 Diabetes
NHS Northern England Clinical Networks with support from Diabetes UK would like to invite you to take part in a short survey about diabetes education as someone living with Type 2 diabetes. We are committed to ensuring that people living with Type 2 diabetes have access to the correct information and education to help manage their condition. Dedicated diabetes education sessions happen all across the country, however attendance is low. We would like to understand why this is, and what steps we can make to improve the uptake. With the information you provide, we hope to gather enough real life experiences of people living with type 2 Diabetes, to help them live a better, healthier life, through education of the condition. Alongside this, healthcare professionals are being invited to take in a survey about diabetes education The survey is anonymous and we would be really grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete the online survey here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/R2V78X5 and tell us about your experience. Paper copy surveys are available so please let us know if you would prefer this option. Should you wish to talk to someone about this survey please contact NHS Northern England Diabetes Clinical Network team by email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0113 825 3307. This survey will close on Monday 10th September 2018. Your contribution and views are very important in helping to shape this piece of work.
