NEWSFLASH REGARDING OMEPRAZOLE 

You may have seen a report in the News this week about the outcomes of an American study on this drug.  We have had a lot of calls from patients who are taking this drug and our message is not to panic as in most cases the benefits of these particular drugs far outweigh any risk. While the risk in the media report sounds high, it is still a very low risk for each person. This is backed up by a Consultant Gastroenterologist at Addenbrookes who says that these are very effective medicines, proven to save lives and reduce the need for surgery in patients with bleeding ulcers and several other conditions. 

 Our surgery already carries out audits of all patients on Omeprazole to check for any specific risk and it is our policy to take patients off the drug when it is no longer needed.  This is one of the reasons why we carry out medication reviews with patients, to check safety aspects and ensure the drugs are still needed.  The need for patients to continue on their Omeprazole will be undertaken at their next planned medication review and the message is not to panic if they are currently taking this drug.  See this link for further information CLICK HERE

press release about our proposed merger with the other GP surgeries in Huntingdon we have received a number of queries from patients.  We have collated these questions into one document which is available here and which we will keep updated as we receive further questions.  Should you have a question about the proposed merger which is not answered by this document please send it to capccg.huntsgrouppractice@nhs.net.”

Friends and Family Test

What is The NHS Friends and Family Test?

We want you to receive the best possible experience from the service we offer. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback so we can continually review our services and make improvements where appropriate.  It is based on one simple question:

“How likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?”

Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience, for example, what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately you’re helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer you the best possible care.   If you prefer to give us your comments anonymously then please do so. If you do leave your contact details then we might get in touch to talk to you about your feedback so we can better understand your views and ideas.
