PRACTICE MISSION STATEMENT

 

“The Park Medical Practice is run by a dedicated group of clinicians and supportive practice team aiming to provide high standards of health care to patients”.

 

PRIVACY, DIGNITY AND RESPECT

 

We are committed to ensuring that patients are treated in clean and pleasant surroundings and that the staff will do all that they can to protect people’s privacy and dignity. Treating people as individuals, whatever their differences or values, and ensuring that their needs are met, is central to our philosophy of ensuring the very highest levels of privacy, dignity and respect.

Our teams are here to help you. They aim to do this in an efficient and professional manner. For example, the care coordinators will at times need to obtain some health details to assess the urgency of the problem so they can direct you to the most appropriate health care professional or service. However please be assured that all information you share to any member of the practice team will be always treated in confidence and are bound by the same codes of conduct as the doctors.

 

Temporary Patient Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
