PATIENT INFORMATION EVENING
We are going to be holding our first information evening on Tuesday 1st May, 6.30pm at Ramsbury Surgery. The topic will be on BACK PAIN and we are delighted that Mr Robin Bhatia, Consultant Spinal Neurosurgeon and a local physiotherapist will be speaking at this event. If you suffer with back pain and are looking for some hints and tips on managing your symptoms, you may find this evening of benefit. Due to restrictions on numbers this will be a ticketed event. If you would like to reserve a place, please email email@example.com requesting a FREE ticket. We anticipate this will be a very popular event so please ensure you reserve your ticket as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Light refreshments will be available prior to the talk.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST
We welcome patient feedback. Please click on the Friends and Family Survey link on the right hand side under Have your say.
Friends and Family Tests are still available to complete online or you can leave feedback in the Surgery. We are currently reviewing data from recent months and will action any feedback received. This is an ongoing feedback resource - please continue to communicate with us through this service.
You may have read about a recent NHS proposal for practices to invite patients over 60 for Dementia Screening. Having looked at the evidence and potential benefits and harms to patients, the Partners have decided NOT to take part in this initiative.
As a Practice, we would encourage any patient who is concerned about their memory to consult their Doctor in the usual way for assessment.
The Doctors will automatically test patients who are at risk of memory decline as part of good medical care. As a Practice, we do not intend to call patients in specifically for a memory assessment alone.
If you have concerns about your (or a relative's) memory, please do not hesitate to discuss it with your Doctor at a routine appointment.
Transport to the Surgery - please remember we utilise the Ramsbury Community Bus on a Tuesday and Thursday morning for transporting our patients to and from the Surgery (from designated pickup points). This new minibus has a disabled access ramp and provides a service for any patient without transport. Please ask our Receptionists for further information if you feel this service would be beneficial to your or your family.
Don't forget you are able to register for online access to book appointments, order repeat medication and view your medical summary. Please ask at Reception for a request form - please note you will need to provide ID to process your request.
