Please only hand in a urine sample if this has been requested by a GP/Nurse.
If you have UTI or other symptoms, this should be discussed with a Pharmacist or GP who will then ask for a sample if required.
Any sample not specifically requested will be discarded.
TELEPHONE CALLBACKS FROM A PARTICULAR GP
If you require a non-urgent call back from a particular GP you will receive this within 1 week. The reason for this timescale is that GPs all work different hours and are not always available immediately. They want to make sure they have enough time to deal with your query fully. In these changing times our workload increasing and this allows the GPs to deal with urgent queries from our vulnerable patients as a priority.
Should your query be urgent or become more urgent whilst you wait for your call back the Duty Doctor will be able to deal with it on a day to day basis.
WHO IS FLORENCE?
Do you have high blood pressure? FLORENCE has been designed to enable patients to increase their involvement in the management of their treatment, condition or lifestyle. Clinical staff use Florence to collect blood pressure readings or symptom information remotely from patients in relation to their healthcare needs. In return Florence sends health advice based on the readings, as agreed with their clinician. Florence can also alert clinicians if a patient's condition worsens to allow them to intervene appropriately. Florence can also send reminders and health tips to support engagement and compliance with health or lifestyle advice.
Do you want to find out more? Please see this link, collect a leaflet from the Practice or ask at Reception.
