CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations to Dr Ahmad and his wife on the birth of their baby boy born 8 April 2015. 

 Test Results 


Test results are available Monday to Friday during office hours.  For tests ordered by the practice you will normally be told how to obtain the results.  In most cases we would be able to give the result over the telephone.  Some results are better discussed or need clarification and you may be asked to see the doctor.  This does not imply there is a problem


Appointments

Each patient is registered with the surgery and you are free to see any of the doctors.  If your usual doctor is unavailable then one of the other doctors would be able to offer you assistance.  Consultations at Lytham and  at Freckleton Health Centre are by appointment only. Prebookable appointments are available at both the main and branch sites.

 If you have any comments or suggestions (positive or negative) regarding the appointments system, please contact the surgery and we will be happy to listen to your views.


Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone to cancel the appointement, helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot. 

Patient Choice

Since April 2008, if your GP needs you to see a specialist, you can choose to go to any hospital in England, including many private and independent sector hospitals. You can choose the hospital with the best reputation or the shortest waiting times, or simp[ly the most convenient for you.

For more information ask your GP or visit the website below:-

WE ARE PLEASED TO SUPPORT

DEMENTIA AWARENESS WEEK – W/C 18TH MAY 2015

 

Alzheimer’s Society is asking people to DO SOMETHING NEW for Dementia Awareness Week (DAW) because they believe that life doesn’t end when dementia begins, AND WE AGREE TOO!

 

We asked members of our Patient Participation Group (PPG) for their ideas for DAW and as a result here at Holland House we are launching our first Dementia Bulletin and are opening our doors week commencing 18th May to a number of local community groups to spend time at the Lytham Primary Care Centre for you to chat to and see how they can support you and your families …

 

… And we have organised Dementia Friends Information sessions during the week , at 1630 on 20th and 1130 on 21st May.

 

 

… SOMETHING NEW ---- our very own team will be baking cakes and Paula Chapman of Lytham has made some “Twiddlemuffs” to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Society.

 

Later in the year another idea from a member of the PPG is to organise a local “sing-a-long” event . This is currently in progress.

 

Holland House is delighted to be able to offer patients the option to access parts of their medical records online. We already offer online services to patients so they can request repeat prescriptions and book appointments. In addition to this, patients will now have the opportunity to view online their current medications, vaccination history and any allergies that they may have. Please see "Patient Online Access"  which is to the right of the screen for more information
