Our Contract With NHS England

The General Medical Services Contract between the GP Partners and the NHS England is summarised as containing the following main elements of medical treatment and care:

Core Services

  • Management of patients who are ill, or believe themselves to be ill, with conditions from which recovery is generally expected, for the duration of that condition, including relevant health promotion advice and referral as appropriate, reflecting patient choice whenever practicable.
  • General management of patients who are terminally ill.
  • Management of chronic disease in the manner determined by the practice, in discussion with the patient.

Additional Services

  • Cervical screening
  • Contraceptive services
  • Vaccinations & immunisations
  • Childhood vaccinations & immunizations
  • Child health surveillance Maternity services
  • Minor surgery
  • Sexual Health services

National Enhanced Services

  • Near patient testing
  • Care of patients with depression
  • Patients who are alcohol misusers
  • IUD fitting
  • Patients suffering from drug misuse

Practice Nurses

The maximum availability of appointments to see the nurses is during the morning surgeries but there are also some appointments during afternoons. The patient should indicate the purpose of their appointment when making appointments to see the nurse, so that the receptionist can allocate the appropriate length of appointment.

The health care assistant is trained to carry out new patient health checks, phlebotomy, the giving of lifestyle advice and routine blood pressure monitoring. Patients will normally be allocated to the health care assistant for these services.

Practice nurses provide first line management of previously diagnosed chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma and hypertension.

Nursing services include: –

Blood Testing Blood Pressure Elderly Health Check
Well Person Health Check Healthy Lifestyle Ear Syringing
Smoking Cessation Influenza Vaccinations Travel Vaccinations
Travel Advice Diabetic Checks Asthma Checks
Pneomococal Vaccinations Contraception Advice Cervical Smear Tests

Influenza and Pneumonia Vaccinations

These vaccinations are routinely offered to patients as an aid in the prevention of Influenza and Pneumonia. It is particularly important that patients with reduced immunity to acquired infections have these vaccinations. This includes:
Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Diabetic Patients, Patients with Asthma, Patients with CHD, Over 65s

The consequences for these patients in having flu or pneumonia may be much more serious than for a healthy patient.
