Noticeboard

We are delighted to announce that patients of our practice are being invited for the Covid-19 vaccination. The programme rollout is phased to ensure vaccine deliveries, logistics and staffing are robustly implemented and consequently, in line with national guidance. Please be assured that we are working tirelessly to telephone patients who are eligible to make vaccination appointments as soon as they are available.


We ask all of you in our practice community to please be patient and wait for your call. Our phones are incredibly busy with poorly patients seeking medical advice and treatment at this time of year and we must ask that you do not call us to enquire about the Covid-19 vaccination. As more vaccine is delivered, more people from other eligible cohorts will be contacted and invited for vaccination in due course. You may find it helpful to read more information about the Doncaster vaccination programme rollout and FAQs on the NHS Doncaster CCG website: https://www.doncasterccg.nhs.uk/your-care/coronavirus-latest-news-and-information/covid-19-vaccine/


 


Thank you all for your patience and understanding whilst our staff work hard to ensure the vaccination programme rollout is a success across the Doncaster South Primary Care Network.



COVID-19 VACCINE SCAM ALERT - If you receive a message from, what looks like, the NHS, but it is asking for your bank details or requests payment to book a COVID vaccine – THIS IS A SCAM. When you are eligible for your vaccine you will be contacted directly by your GP Practice for your FREE COVID vaccine appointment.


 



The practice is now on Facebook! Our page, 'The Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice', is an information bulletin to keep our patient's informed on all things happening at the practice and any updates or information on programmes within the NHS.

GP Training

This practice has been accredited as being suitable for the training of those doctors intending to become general practitioners.


This means that the practice and doctors have had to achieve a number of standards which have been assessed by theDeanery for South Yorkshire and Humber, acting on behalf of the National Training Organisation.


These are some points for your information:



  • Those doctors training to become GPs are called GP Registrars. They are employed by the practice.

  • The GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor who is likely to have a lot of experience of hospital medicine.

  • If you are seeing a Registrar, you can expect to receive the quality of service you would get from your own GP. If you have any concerns, please mention this to a member of staff.

  • In order for the Registrars to successfully complete their training, they need to be assessed on their consulting skills. This is done by the appointed assessors viewing a video of the registrars consultations. You may be asked for your permission to have your consultation recorded in this way. If you agree, you will need to give your written permission by signing a consent form available at reception desk, which will be offered to you. If the doctor appears to be recording your consultation and you have not signed a consent form, you should indicate this to him or her immediately. The recording will be used for educational purposes only. Further information about this process and the confidentiality of it, can be obtained from the reception staff.

  • To ensure that the practice continues to meet the standards of training in the South Yorkshire and Humber Deanery, it and the doctors will be subject to regular inspection visits (normally every tow or three years).   At this inspection another doctor will assess the quality of the patient records. If you do not want your own record to be available for inspection, then please inform the practice of your wishes, and they will be respected. Please ask any member of the reception staff if further information is needed.
