We are not participating in the Patient Choice Scheme for Out of Area Registrations. This is for a number of reasons, the most important of which is that we have not yet been informed of what the urgent care arrangements will be for out of area patients who are unable to attend the surgery. We believe that this may impact on patient safety so we will continue to request that patients moving out of our practice area re-register with a new practice.
A ‘healthy lifestyle’ is what we recommend:
- Stop smoking
- Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veg
- Exercise regularly
- Keep alcohol intake within recommended limits
