Patient Triage System Access To Your Full Medical Record New Total Triage Service starting 6th November 2023 Church Walk Surgery Honoured at the Lincolnshire General Practice Nursing and HCA Awards! We would like to inform you of some changes here at Church Walk Surgery PATIENT CAR PARK BLOOD & TEST RESULTS
The Unit, run by a team of experienced nurses and GPs will be available seven days a week but will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Easter Sunday. On arrival, patients will be assessed and the injury treated by a trained nurse or doctor as appropriate, however in some cases it may be necessary to refer patients on to further treatment at a hospital.
We are able to treat a range of conditions including the following, however this list is not exhaustive:
|Minor cuts and grazes
|Minor cuts requiring stitches
|Acute sprains and strains
|Joint and Limb pain/stiffness
|Acute sports injuries
|Animal and human bites
|Removal of foreign bodies
|Genito-urinary infections, including STIs
|Abdominal pain without fever
|Minor neck injury Whiplash
|Diarrhoea and vomiting
|Foreign bodies in eyes
|Coughs (for less than four weeks)
|Breathing related problems including (asthma, bronchitis and COPD)
However, we cannot provide care for serious injuries, major accidents, severe chest pains, serious breathing problems, severe pain of any description (ie likely appendicitis), road traffic accidents, anaphylactic reactions or collapse.
The service is available to patients whether or not they are registered with a GP, and can provide care for those not living in Sleaford or the surrounding area. The unit can care for patients attending with both minor illnesses and injuries and is a walk in service. The patients’ own GP will receive a summary of the care received following the consultation so their notes can be updated accordingly. Any patient who cannot be treated will be referred as appropriate.
Dr Vindi Bhandal, Chair South West Lincolnshire CCG said, “With ever-increasing pressure in A&E, we are encouraging patients to make use of the extended hours offered by the unit in Sleaford. By using the services offered at the practice, we can ensure patients receive the right care locally, first time.”
