‘MESSAGE FOR ADULT WOMEN (NON PREGNANT) WITH POTENTIAL URINE INFECTIONS

We are looking to stream-line the way we manage urine samples. If you feel you may have urine infection then you must discuss this with a receptionist, either at the desk or over the phone. We will not be assessing any urine samples just handed in at the surgery.

Please review the NHS website on ways to manage urine infections – some infections improve without the need for antibiotics.’

Breathing better                      

 At Wibsey & Queensbury Medical Practice we really want to do the best for our patients with COPD and asthma, keeping you as fit and well as possible.  We also want to protect the environment, providing cleaner air for you to breathe and reducing carbon emissions.  To achieve all these goals we are planning to switch some of your inhalers to ones which are better for the environment, but which are still the same medication, doing the same job in your lungs. This is not a cost cutting exercise, as if anything these types of inhalers are slightly more expensive than your old ones.

The best swap is from an MDI (metered dose inhaler) to a DPI (dry powder inhaler).  It is the delivery system in MDI inhalers which is bad for the environment and so, in the long term, bad for your lungs.

We hope you will find these swaps easy to use, but if you are having difficulties, please do get in touch with us. Please see the leaflet 'breathing better' below. 

Wishing you Good Health,

 

Wibsey & Queensbury Medical Practice

Econsult is Available 24 Hours Per Day, 7 Days per Week!

You do not need to be registered for our online service to use econsult. The practice does experience large increase in the number of telephone calls that we receive each day. This is resulting in patients having to queue for longer on the phones. To help with this, we are asking as many patients as possible to use our E-Consult service.

To use this service, click on the banner above.

This allows you to send messages to the surgery from your laptop, smartphone, or PC at any time of the day or night, and it can be done 7 days per week. When the practice receives a message, a response will be sent within 2 working day (except when it is a bank holiday or when the practice is closed.)

You can send us prescription queries, requests for sick notes and any routine medical matter, or any admin queries.  A clinician will then look at your request, and respond  normally within 48 hours.
