Face coverings required in practice

Falkland House Surgery Bank Holiday Closures 2022:

Monday 29th August 2022 – Closed all day

Welcome to Falkland House Surgery

There has been a doctor’s surgery at Falkland House for over half a century, and the main part of the building is the original doctor’s family home.

We have approximately 4000 patients, and as the population is reasonably stable, we have the opportunity to build lasting relationships. Often patients have been at the Practice for many years and several generations of a family may have been through the surgery doors.

There have only been six permanent doctors at the Practice since its inception. This is not to say that we are stuck in the past. We like to think that we combine modern medicine with the traditional values of caring general practice.

Face Coverings in Practice

Public health guidance remains in place suggesting individuals should continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

With current case rates in South Yorkshire remaining high the Directors of Public Health for Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield are advising that well fitted and correctly worn face masks have made a difference to transmission rates through the course of the pandemic and are therefore encouraging people to continue to wear them.

You will still be required to wear a face covering when using NHS services. We ask that patients continue to wear face coverings when visiting our practice. Hand sanitiser is also available for you to use whilst in practice and we ask that you continue to maintain a safe distance from other patients whilst in the waiting room.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Porter Valley Primary Care Network Listening Service

What is a Listening Service?

All of us find ourselves facing difficulties from time to time and in a busy, sometimes stressful life, it’s important that people know that they are being listening to. Each of us is more than just physical. The health of our inner self can affect our well-being in every other aspect.

You may find it helpful to talk to someone independent, who has time to listen and is experienced in supporting people through life’s challenges.

For more information please see the leaflet below:

Defibrillator

Our Patient Participation Group has successfully applied to the British Heart Foundation in conjunction with the Dept of Health to be supplied with a community defibrillator and cabinet.  This is a fantastic result for the whole community.  A big thank you to Lynn and her team of dedicated volunteers.The cabinet will be sited on the outside wall of the surgery so will be accessible to surgery staff during practice opening hours as well as members of the public when the surgery is closed.  More information can be found on our Patient Group page.

Electronic Prescription Service – A new way to get your medicines and appliances.

Accessible Information

We now have some literature available in other formats eg – Practice Leaflet in large font, Stop Smoking guide in braille, childhood immunisation DVD.  Due to limited supplies some of these items will only be available to borrow rather than keep.  As part of this initiative could you please let reception know if you have any particular information/communication needs so that we can improve our service to you.

Access

Our premises has suitable access for disabled patients.  As we have on-road parking only, please ensure that you park in a safe place and do not obstruct or inconvenience our neighbours.
