Information for patients

 

BEWARE OF SCAMMERS during the pandemic

There is heightened coverage around the recent Coronavirus outbreak around the world, which is now severely impacting on the UK and the NHS. 

 

Unfortunately fraudsters are targeting these circumstances to take advantage of public fear and concern

 

We have been made aware that our patients are receiving phone calls, texts and letters from fraudsters. They will try and obtain your personal details and in particular your NHS number.

 

Scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and will try many ways to get the information they want. They often target the vulnerable.

 

If you are suspicious, do not give any details over the phone, hang up and then ring your GP Practice to confirm.

Nurse Practitioners

Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP) and Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACP) make an important contribution to the day-to-day running of Farrier House. These members of staff have acquired an expert clinical knowledge base and work alongside the doctors. 

Our ANPs manage the on-the-day triage system which is in place to ensure that patient's medical needs are dealt with most effectively. This is initiated with a telephone call discussion to be able to assess how best to help our patient's as every situation is different.
