'The New Normal'

As we start to see a suggestion of a rise in COVID cases, we at Bramhall Health Centre remain flexible and able to adapt quickly to whatever the next few weeks and months bring. The reason we can do this is thanks to our ‘book on the day’ system, combined with ‘total triage’ via telephone or our online E-consult. We understand some people's frustration at not being able to book a face to face appointment directly or book in advance, as we could pre-COVID. However, the vast majority of patients and GPs alike, have focused on the real positives of this new system. These include:

  •    Our 3-week wait for a routine appointment has gone.
  •    Most patients now have a consultation on the same day they request it.
  •    GPs deal with greater numbers and more appropriate and complex patients now than they did before, helping them to focus on where they are needed most.
  •    GPs only see patients they need to - we now have an Advanced Practitioner, a team of clinical pharmacists, a First Contact Physiotherapist, a Wellbeing Practitioner, and our Nurses specialising in areas like Diabetes/Asthma/Hypertension, who all have specific skills that make them the best person to see.
  •    Patients have been able to have consultations without having to take time off work or find childcare.
  •    Patients can fill in online consultations at any time and always get a response from us.
  •    We can now book patients in from 111.
  •    Patients are pleased they don’t need to fight for parking
  •    Patients are saving time by avoiding commuting and waiting in the surgery when a clinician runs behind.
  •    We've prevented COVID spreading amongst our staff and patients and subsequently into the wider community
  •    Our waiting rooms are safer with fewer patients in them and we have adequate time to put on (and safely remove PPE) and clean equipment and rooms afterward. Note that this reduction in face to face contact is made up for by the huge increase in telephone consultations.

Most GP surgeries around the country are now seeing the clear advantages of telephone consultations, supplemented by photo, video, or face to face contact where this is deemed necessary by the clinician. For this reason, many (including Bramhall Health Centre) will continue to work in this new way for the foreseeable future.

We are so very grateful to have a wonderful community of patients that respect and support what we do. The comments we’ve received via various channels, including our friends and family testing, have been heartwarming.

We thank you and promise to work as hard as ever to serve our community.

Dr Jillian Lowe, Dr Lynda Pozzoni and Dr Louise Monk

MANY THANKS FOR YOUR HELP AND UNDERSTANDING AT THIS TIME

 


Due to the ongoing situation regarding COVID19 the Practice has taken the decision to stop all paper prescriptions. Any prescriptions issued going forward will be issued electronically via EPS system. We therefore ask that you choose your nominated pharmacy for prescriptions to be sent to. You will no longer be able to hand in your paper request at the Surgery, you will need to request your prescription using the online service or by emailing your request to stoccg.bramhallprescriptions@nhs.net with your name, date of birth, address, nominated pharmacy and details of the medications you are requesting. Your request will take 72 hours to process. This will be the case until further notice. Thank you in advance for your co-operation.


  

Welcome To Bramhall Health Centre

Bramhall Health Centre is a long-standing teaching practice (we help teach qualified doctors who are training to become General Practitioners and are involved in teaching medical students). 

There are seven doctors operating from a purpose-built accommodation in the centre of the village (90% of our patients live within three miles of the centre of the village). We have thirteen thousand patients registered in the practice.

The building also houses other services run by NHS Stockport such as the dressing clinic nurse, counsellors, district nurses, health visitors, midwives, physiotherapists, speech therapists and podiatrists.  This provides an ideal basis for a primary health care team approach to problems.

The practice is dedicated to providing a high level of medical care for our patients. We continuously strive to improve our services by encouraging staff attendance on update courses, organising in-house teaching sessions and audits for all staff.

Our Catchment Area: To see if you live within our designated catchment area, please copy the link below into your internet browser and you can enter your postcode to see if you are within our boundary.
