The Practice has now completed its training for our Reception Staff to become Care Navigators. This means that they are prepared to help direct you to the best service for your specific health needs. Our receptionists are here to help you get it right. The receptionist might be able to suggest more appropriate professionals such as:
- Family Services
- Support Groups
Please don't be offended if they ask you what the problem is when you ask for an appointment.
WHY YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT PRESCRIBE YOUR USUAL MEDICINES
NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for buying health services on behalf of people in Sheffield, including medicines provided on prescription.
We need to make sure we get the best value for NHS resources and that patients get the most effective care and treatment.
In Sheffield, we currently spend over £3 million a year on medicines that are widely available to buy over-the-counter without a prescription and a further £300,000 on expensive branded medicines where a non-branded product would have been available at a much lower cost.
Please see the following leaflet and poster for more information.
