Heat Health Watch Service

Heatwaves can be dangerous, especially for the very young, the elderly or those with a chronic disease. Prolonged exposure to very high temperatures can mean the body is unable to reduce its own temperature, causing dehydration and heatstroke, which can be fatal. In particular, hot temperatures overnight make it difficult for the body to cool.

The Heat Health Watch Service operates in England from 1 June to 15 September each year, in association with Public Health England.

The Met Office forecasts day-time and night-time maximum temperatures, which are monitored regionally. When certain heat thresholds are passed, a warning is issued and sent to relevant NHS, social care, local and national government professionals, well as being displayed on our website. This enables organisations, frontline staff and individuals to take action to minimise the impact of the heat on peoples' health.

The practice is currently offering a new audiology service from the Padiham and Nelson sites - ask at reception for further information. Over 55 year old can ask to be referred into the service for Free NHS hearing aids.

East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group

Over the last 18 months East Lancashire CCG has been working alongside patients, carers and wider stakeholders like doctors and pharmacists to develop a vision for how they would like GP services to develop in future. Our vision is for GPs and partner organisations to work together more closely; to provide quality joined up care; with equal access to services wherever you live in East Lancashire. Together we came up with a simplified system to provide appointments in the practice, on the phone, online and in patients’ homes as required. Further information in document below.

 

Named Accountable GP

Named GP

As part of the commitment to more personalised care for patients, NHS Employers and the General Practitioners Committee of the British Medical Association have agreed that all patients will have a named accountable GP

 

The ‘named’ GP will: -

  • Take lead responsibility for ensuring that all appropriate services required under the contract with the practice are delivered to you

 

  • Where required, based on the professional judgement of the ‘named’ GP, work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multidisciplinary care package that meets your needs

 

  • Ensure that your physical and psychological needs are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice

 

  • Ensure that patients over 75 years of age have access to a health check if requested, which is already a requirement of the GP contract regulations.

 

 

Fairmore Medical Practice will ensure that there is a named accountable GP assigned to each patient.

New patients will be allocated a GP at the time of registration.

Your named accountable GP will be the same as your registered GP however this does not affect your ability to see any GP of your choice as you currently do.
