Noticeboard

For your safety & ours, we must insist that you do not come to the surgery to make routine enquiries, please call us instead.

Anyone approaching or entering the surgery building must wear a covering over their nose & mouth; whether it be to attend an appointment, collect a prescription, or to act as a chaperone.

Please do not arrive EARLY for your appointment as we are not able to permit patients to wait inside the building. You may be asked to return to your vehicle and wait for your clinician to become available.  Please, therefore, be mindful of the weather conditions when setting out and come prepared.

If you find yourself in a queue outside the building, please remember to observe the 2 metre distancing rule.

We would like to thank you for your continued understanding and support during these challenging times.  However, we are very sad to report that our staff have recently been receiving an increasing amount of verbal hostility, both from telephone and face-to-face encounters with patients and their families.  We operate a zero tolerance policy and will not condone abuse of our staff and partners in any form.  The Whiteparish Surgery team work very hard to provide the best service possible in, what are often, very difficult circumstances and we have been disheartened by recent events.  PLEASE BE KIND.

Long Term Conditions Support

The practice takes a positive approach in supporting patients who have a long term condition, for example;

  • Asthma
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Mental Health

Patients who have a long term condition are offered a regular review with one of our Specialist Nurses. They can provide support and information and help to identify problems early suggesting interventions which may be of benefit.

Once we are aware of your Long Term Condition, you will receive an invitation for an annual review just before or during your birth month. You may be required to have a blood test or urine check as part of the annual review process.   If you do not wish to attend or are sent a pre-booked appointment that you know you cannot keep, it important that you let us know.

If you suffer from Asthma, you can check how well your asthma is under control by completing this Asthma Control Questionnaire

Once you have completed it, simply hand in to Reception for our Nurses to review your answers.

Whiteparish Surgery has a 24 hour blood pressure monitor and also electronic blood pressure machines for home readings. These can be lent to our patients when indicated by a doctor or nurse.
