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”

Patient Groups 

Acorn Patient Team

Patient Participation Group

We have an active and dedicated Patient Participation Group (PPG) known as The Acorn Patient Team.  They are all registered patients who help us to improve our communication with patients and to meet the needs of different patient groups. We want to build on the good work and excellent services we already offer to develop the practice. We are currently working with the Patient Team on developing a strategy to address the serious issue of patients not attending for their booked appointments.  The members act as our ’critical friend’ and from time to time organise fund-raising and education events.  Their monthly meetings are open to any registered patient and are held on the last Tuesday of each month 18:00 - 19:00 at the Oak Tree Centre

Patient Reference Group

In 2011 we established a different type of patient group - a Patient Reference Group (PRG) which operates slightly differently to our PPG.  The PRG is a virtual group with whom we communicate via email. Patients identify topics linked to the surgery that they wish to be consulted on or informed about.  If you are interested in joining either of our patient groups, please contact us or leave your details at reception and we will contact you with further information.
