Caring for Your Dental Conditions

As a practice we would like our patients to receive the best possible care. GPs have no training or qualifications in dentistry and we are therefore unable to diagnose, treat or prescribe medications for dental problems. If you are unwell and are unsure if it is due to a dental or medical problem, we are happy to see you. However, if it is found that you are suffering from a dental problem, we will not be able to offer treatment or medication and will ask that you see a dentist to have it safely and appropriately addressed.

If you do not have a registered NHS dentist or are unable to get a timely appointment, you should phone 111. They will, where appropriate, help arrange an emergency appointment with a local dentist in your area. This is also true for care outside of normal working hours.

SE Locality Forum (SELF)

The SE Locality Health Forum began with a workshop in Benson on 18 December 2012. Since then, it has met five times - in January (Wallingford), March (Nettlebed), April (Wheatley), July (Sonning Common), and September (Watlington). The main aims are for exchange of ideas between patient representatives and Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) in the area and for 2-way communication. The chair for 2013 is John Reid (Benson).

The Forum meets quarterly but it also has a web site and online discussion board on Talking Health, which is working well and has allowed the PPGs to exchange experiences. ‘We show each other our newsletters; we have discussed questions for surveys; we have discussed the 111 service (and been reassured about it); we have told each other about our weekend opening hours; and, we are currently thinking about a “shopping list” of health services that we would like to see in the Locality’.

If any patient registered with Morland House surgery would like to join the forum and contribute to the discussions about local health services they should contact Mr John Reid direct on JandA.Reid@tiscali.co.uk.

2013 Audit of dispensary services: Patient satisfaction

During September and October 2013 patients collecting prescriptions were asked to complete the attached questionnaire. The format of the questionnaire was similar to one used in 2009 to assess levels of patient satisfaction with the Morland House Dispensary and thus allowed for comparison. One additional question was added. This question related to our online repeat prescription service which was not available in 2009.

Message in a Bottle

What is the Message in a Bottle?

The Message in a Bottle Scheme is a simple idea designed to encourage people living on their own to keep their basic personal and medical details in a common location where they can be found in an emergency.

How does the scheme work?

As the name suggests, the personal information is kept in a small plastic bottle - see front cover. The bottle has a push-fit lid and is big enough to hold the necessary information.

The bottle is then kept in the fridge, where the emergency services will expect to look for it in the event of being called to your home.

They will be alerted to your membership of the scheme by two 'green cross' labels. One is fixed to the back of the front door (or the door most used to access the premises), the second is attached to the door of the fridge. Where can I get a Bottle from?

Bottles and forms are available from the secretary at Morland House Surgery. How much does it cost?

There is no cost to the user. Costs of running the scheme are being borne by local Lions Clubs and many generous business sponsors.

What information is needed?

The information you need to provide is quite straight forward, but you may like to ask a relative, neighbour or carer to help you complete the form. The form also has a space for a passport size photograph, but this is only necessary when there is more than one person living at the premises (to aid identification)

Information required to complete the form is:

  • Your full name and brief physical description
  • Your doctors name and the surgery address & telephone number
  • A brief description of any medical conditions you are suffering from - your doctor or carer will help if you are uncertain
  • The names, addresses and telephone numbers of two persons who may be contacted in the event of an emergency - sudden illness or accident
  • Details of any pets which may be on the premises and need to be cared for
  • Are YOU a Carer? If so, for whom and where do they live?

In addition, we strongly recommend that you also include your repeat prescription list. This is produced every time a repeat prescription is ordered, and this information is of great value to the Ambulance Service.(Paramedics are able to administer drugs, but need to know of any you are already taking to eliminate the risk of drug interaction).

Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (OCCG)

What is Clinical Commissioning?

In order to shift decision-making as close as possible to patients, power and responsibility for commissioning services will be devolved to local groups for clinicians.

As such, by April 2013, there should be a comprehensive system of Clinical Commissioning Groups, supported by and accountable to a new NHS Commissioning Board. These groups will take over the responsibility for commissioning health services when they can demonstrate that they are ready to do so.

Your local GP practices will join other health professionals in a Clinical Commissioning Group, which will be responsible for "commissioning" - planning, designing and paying for your NHS services. This will include planned and emergency hospital care, rehabilitation, most community services and mental health and learning disability services.

GPs and other clinicians will also be responsible for engaging with local people to ensure that the services they are paying for meet your needs.

A new national NHS Commissioning Board will oversee the performance of Clinical Commissioning Groups, as well as commissioning GP services, pharmacy, opticians and dentists, and other specialised services.

A new consumer body called HealthWatch England will be set up. Local HealthWatch bodies will replace the current Local Involvement Networks (LINks). They will promote public engagement in the NHS, comment on changes to local services, act as advocates for complaints, and deliver advice across health and social care.
