SELF CARE

Empowering people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when they need to, gives people greater control of their own health and encourages healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term. See advice resource bottom of right hand column.

In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients, such as those with comorbidities, the very young and elderly, managing long-term conditions and providing new services.

Oriel Surgery Training Practice

 

Oriel Surgery has been accredited as a training practice, and from early August 2015 we will be hosting qualified doctors intending to become GP’s. Becoming a training practice means that we have been recognised for achieving higher standards of patient care – something that we earnestly value and treasure.

 

The GP Trainee is a fully qualified doctor who already has experience of hospital medicine and will gain invaluable experience by being based within the practice.

 

Please do not hesitate to speak to the GP or staff member about this new development
