Children's Community Health in Cornwall

A review of children’s community health and wellbeing services in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is underway to consider how they could be improved.

The review is looking at a wide range of services. For the full list go to www.kernowccg.nhs.uk/health-topics/children/childrens-health-and-well-being-service-review

If you have any views on children’s services please complete this survey www.surveymonkey.com/s/childrensreview by 30 June.

Do you take sleeping tablets?

Do you take sleeping tablets? Have you tried cutting down your dose, or missing a day to see how you get on without them? Are you aware that some of these medicines can become addictive? Have you discussed this with the doctor recently? 

One of our patients recently stopped taking her sleeping tablets.  Initially she was worried and quite angry about being asked to think about stopping. Having managed to stop she felt much better and thought it was a really good thing that she had been encouraged to do so

Sleeping tablets should only really be taken for a few days and then discontinued. If you have been taking them on a regular basis for a long time we will want to periodically review your sleeping medication to check that you still need it and are on the most appropriate medicine and the right dose.

West Cornwall Hospital Urgent Care Centre

A lot of people are going to the UCC or A&E with:

  • Stings & Bites
  • Sprains & Strains
  • Cystitis

These ailments can nearly always wait until we open next; please click on the highlighted links above for more advice or go to patient.co.uk or NHS Choices for more advice and information.

If you have a very high fever (over 38 degrees Celsius) or uncontrolled shaking, or severe pain in the kidney (loin) area ring the out of hours service.

CARE QUALITY COMMISSION (CQC)

From the 1st April 2013, the CQC have taken responsibility for ensuring that the highest standards are set in GP practices.  To do this, they will need to make periodic inspections, and their visits will be made at minimal notice.

We support the principle of the CQC in maintaining the highest possible standards of healthcare provision, and hope that our patients will also embrace the inspection process if they come across it.

During the course of the visit by CQC the inspector may ask to speak to patients about their experience here, and they may ask if it is alright to view the patient documentation to ensure that it is of the highest standard.

We ask all of our patients to co-operate with the inspections as far as possible, and assure you that any inconvenience will be kept to a minimum.

Data Protection

We take the protection of information about our patients extremely seriously, and do our best to ensure thatit is treated securely at all times.  We need to share some information with other health care agencies at times, and ensure that this is limited by time and content to what is necessary for your treatment.  The Government has changed the law about allowing third parties to access data from our system, however, and you should read the new article on Data Protection in the Practice Information page.
