Latest News from the Practice
The structure of the NHS has changed with the advent of a new way of providing services to the population. In the past, we had Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) which commissioned services. This meant that each PCT would find and procure services which they felt were needed for their local population. The new structure, which is now in place, has turned this around and now General Practitioners are in the driving seat!
What is this about?
A new three-digit number is now available in Oxfordshire. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and calls from both landlines and mobiles are free. The new service is part of a national programme to make it easier for the public to access urgent health services.
Dialing 111 will now get you through to a team of fully trained call advisers, who are supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, and give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the right local service. The NHS 111 team will, where possible, book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to. If they think you need an ambulance, they will send one immediately, just as if you had originally dialled 999.
