Noticeboard

Please Note: Please only attend the Surgery if you have an appointment. A member of the Reception Team will check your temperature before allowing you access to the building. All enquiries are currently being dealt with by telephone. Thank you for your patience.

Coronavirus Update

PLEASE NOTE: All GP appointments are telephone consultations. If the GP wishes to see a patient they will invite them to attend the Surgery following a telephone consultation.   Nursing appointments are available.

If you need to attend the surgery, you must now wear a face covering (over 5 years only). This can be as simple as a scarf or bandana covering your mouth and nose. Information on face coverings is available on the below link.

Please do not come to the Surgery if you have a high temperature, a new continuous cough, flu like symptoms or loss of taste or smell.

The practice closes every Wednesday lunch time from 12:30 - 13:30 for staff development.

Young People

 

At Denton Turret, we aim to make all our patients feel welcome and supported. We know that coming to the doctors is not easy at times. We know that young adults, who are coming to the doctors for the first time without a parent or carer, or are unsure what to do, may be especially worried. Don't be.

We have worked with young people to put together a leaflet to explain things - here it is:

We take helping young adults very seriously. We know you can be anxious about things like confidentiality (e.g. will the nurse or doctor ring my mum and tell her I've been in?) or consent (e.g. will the nurse or doctor do something - an injection, say - without my permission?). Here are some of our practice documents which tell you we respect your confidentiality, and we abide by getting your consent.

There are times when we won't get things 100% right: we are human too! But please, if you feel we've let you down, tell us. Either see the "You said - We say" notice in the waiting room, ask to see Sharon, the Practice Manager, or send an email to Dentonturret.a86601@nhs.net

 

We would love to have some feedback on how we are doing, so feel free to drop an email anytime you like, or leave a comment for Sharon, the Practice Manager, at Reception (ask to speak to her, if she is in her office).
