The Christchurch Medical Practice Open Day is fast approaching on the 31st August 2019. It will run from the Purewell site, starting at 1030 and finishing at 1430. It is all very exciting and a new venture for most of us. It is not just open to our patients but to anyone who would like to attend.
The idea of an open day initially came about after I saw several patients in surgery, who were struggling with the care of their partners who had dementia. On further questioning it was evident that there was a general lack of awareness of local organisations that offer much needed help and support.
I then started to approach local organisations and invited them to the open day, allowing them to promote/ raise awareness of their services. Organisations attending include;
- Live well Dorset
- Christchurch angles
- Water lilly project
- Somerford ARC/ BH23
- Foodbank/ Faithworks
- People’s pantry and Gym
- Active for health
- Adapt Cafe
- Dorset Blind
- Neighbour cars
- Dorset Blind
- Two Riversmeet
- Active travel
- Marie Carie Nurses
- Slimmer World
- Fire brigade
They will have stalls in the Barn Waiting area.
On the Orchard Side, CMP doctors and nurses will be providing mini health checks (BP, Inhaler technique assessment, breathing tests etc) and healthy lifestyle advise. We are also providing an introduction to basic life support using manikins. In addition, the police and fire brigade will be advising people on home safety, such as fire alarms. Our Patient participation group will also be providing refreshments. Proceeds made form the refreshment stall will go toward the surgery equipment fund. " - We look forward to seeing you on the day
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patients' needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The everyday technology available through your phones, tablets and PCs, etc., also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. ( Please see our " services" tab for further information)
This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
