NEWSFLASH REGARDING OMEPRAZOLE 

You may have seen a report in the News this week about the outcomes of an American study on this drug.  We have had a lot of calls from patients who are taking this drug and our message is not to panic as in most cases the benefits of these particular drugs far outweigh any risk. While the risk in the media report sounds high, it is still a very low risk for each person. This is backed up by a Consultant Gastroenterologist at Addenbrookes who says that these are very effective medicines, proven to save lives and reduce the need for surgery in patients with bleeding ulcers and several other conditions. 

 Our surgery already carries out audits of all patients on Omeprazole to check for any specific risk and it is our policy to take patients off the drug when it is no longer needed.  This is one of the reasons why we carry out medication reviews with patients, to check safety aspects and ensure the drugs are still needed.  The need for patients to continue on their Omeprazole will be undertaken at their next planned medication review and the message is not to panic if they are currently taking this drug.  See this link for further information CLICK HERE

press release about our proposed merger with the other GP surgeries in Huntingdon we have received a number of queries from patients.  We have collated these questions into one document which is available here and which we will keep updated as we receive further questions.  Should you have a question about the proposed merger which is not answered by this document please send it to capccg.huntsgrouppractice@nhs.net.”

New Patient Registration

Patient Information Leaflet

 

Oaktree_frontIf you decide to register as a patient with us you need to do is come to Reception and complete a form or request this via email but note that you will need to bring in the completed form and sign this to before the registration process can be completed. We no longer have the facility for patients to register with us online as the process was not fail-safe. If you are on repeat medication, you should bring your repeat slip with you when you next request medication or have your first appointment, giving at least 48 hours’ notice, excluding weekends and bank holidays.

All patients registered with the Acorn Surgery will have a named GP.  Patients can request a change of named GP and when making an appointment, can see any of our clinical team and rather than a specific doctor. 

New patients with an existing medical condition or who are on medication are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

You will need to show ID upon registering at the Practice if you wish to have access to the Patient Online system to access coded data in your medical record.

Changes to Personal Details

If you change your name, address, home or mobile telephone number or email address, particularly if your number is ex-directory, please inform us as soon as possible.  It may be important for us to contact you at home or work.
