Dr Martin

Everyone at The Helsby and Elton Practice was greatly saddened to hear of the passing away of Dr Martin's husband, Simon at the weekend. Because of this she will be unavailable in the practice for the foreseeable future.

Her clinical work will be covered by the existing practice GPs and occasionally GP Locums. We are endeavouring to keep disruption to clinics and services to a minimum and it would be appreciated if patients could be understanding of this during what is a very difficult time.

Our thoughts are with Dr Martin and her family.

New Waiting Room TV Screens
We have recently installed waiting room TV screens in both our practices. When you attend for an appointment please check in as normal and go to the waiting area. Your name will be displayed on the TV screen when the GP, Nurse or Healthcare Assistant is ready to see you.

Ebola Outbreak - West Africa
Hardly a moment goes by without a news item about Ebola. Most of it is in far flung parts of the world - In Africa but some cases have now come back to Europe (Spain) and America. Currently there is no evidence of person to person spread in the UK but this could change given the warnings by the World Health Organisation. You may now be wondering what can you do for your loved ones and what are we doing to support patients and the public.

Elton Surgery Waiting Room Blood Pressure Machine
A blood pressure machine has recently been installed in the Elton Surgery. Any patients who need to take their blood pressure for a GP appointment can now do this before their appointment. Just hand in the blood pressure reading slip at the beginning of the consultation and It will save time for both the GP and yourself.

Dr Gregson
Dr Gregson is currently leading a twelve month project run by the West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group which is developing and transforming primary care in the local area. As a result of this he is no longer available to book appointments at either of our surgeries on a Tuesday and some Monday mornings at Helsby. Dr Abbie Brown who is familiar to our patients having worked with us over the summer of 2012 is replacing Dr Gregson on these days

The practice has been inundated with enquiries from patients about how they can pass on a message to Dr Martin. If any patient would like to send a message to her there is now a Book of Condolence on the reception desk at both surgeries. Alternatively, if you wish to send her a card then please hand it in to reception at either surgery and we will ensure Dr Martin receives it. 

Many thanks
