Patient Survey

We would like to know how you feel we have done as a surgery throughtout the COVID-19 pandemic. If there were area's of our service you felt were good or useful and areas we could improve on in the future. If you could find time to complete the following survey it would be much appreciated. All feedback is useful to use as a practice we would like to offer the best service we can.

Primary Care Survey


Face coverings to be worn in surgery.

We are asking all our patients to wear a face covering if you are asked to come to the surgery for an appointment by one of our clinicians (after a telephone appointment) or requested by our nursing team (or administrator on behalf of our nursing team) .

 This will protect other patients and our staff. You can make your own face coverings using the advice available online at the gov.uk website. Simply search for ‘face covering’.

 Face coverings should not be worn by children under three and people who would find wearing them difficult. 


EPS Phase 4 has now been live since 3rd March 2020 and has been a great success with approx 96%

 PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WHILST THERE ARE NATIONAL AND / OR LOCAL CONCERNS REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS, WE HAVE SUSPENDED THE ONLINE SERVICE FOR BOOKING APPOINTMENTS ONLINE. THIS IS TO ENSURE ALL PATIENTS ARE GIVEN THE MOST RECENT AND CORRECT INFORMATION AND ADVICE WHEN WANTING TO SEE A CLINICIAN.


How to avoid catching and spreading germs:

There are things you can do to help stop germs like coronavirus spreading:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

 


Additional services available for patients needing support with smoking cessation, weight management and / or non clinical issues such as benefits, loneliness, relationship breakdowns, anxiety, depression and drug or alcohol addiction

Since working together with other local Practices within our Network (Trinity Health Group) THG,  we have been developing ways with existing services in them becoming easier to access by your self referral, hopefully which will reduce waiting times where possible.  From November 2019, you can self refer yourself to services listed above, should you need them. On how to access these services please click on the Primary Care Home - Networking header at the top of the page. You can also self refer yourself to our Social Prescriber link worker who can work with you to ensure you get access to the most appropriate service to meet your needs

Telephone appointment slots

We have offered telephone appointment slots with GPs for quite a while (please ask a receptionist for more information if you think this is appropriate for you). We also offer specific times for our young people to discuss  personal issues they are worried about with a GP - please ask a receptionist for more information regarding either of these services.

Trinity Care is the name of our local in-hours and out of hours triage service. The service runs from Trinity Medical Centre, based in central Wakefield and covers patients registered at Crofton and Sharlston Medical Practice, Warrengate Medical Centre, Maybush Medical Centre, Trinity Medical Practice and Eastmoor Surgery.

From May 2016, Crofton and Sharlston Medical Practice joined Trinity Care to support local services including our Accident and Emergency units and also to ensure out of hours services for our patients, remain as local as possible for as much of the time we are currently able to cover.

They will assess your symptoms and if necessary you will be able to see a GP at Trinity Medical Centre, . For calls outside of these hours will remain the same - for clinical advice, home visits that cannot wait until the surgery reopens, please call 111. For urgent assistance, please call 999.

Trinity Care is open 365 days a year including Christmas, Easter and New Year.
