NEWS HEADLINES FROM CHARNWOOD SURGERY
Please see our 'Latest News' section (on right hand side) for more information
***** Learning Disability Awareness *****
Mencap in collaboration with NHS England are launching a campaign to raise awareness about learning disability. This is all about encouraging people with a learning disability to get better healthcare, by letting people know that doctors and other healthcare workers can provide extra support and advice. By making the GP aware of your learning disability they can add you to their register which means you will be offered extra support and annual health check.
Further information can be found on the right hand side
***** CQC Inspection *****
On Wednesday 26th April we will be inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The inspectors will assess the quality of care based on the information provided and by carrying out interviews with a wide range of staff, PPG members and patients. They will also read the comments cards completed by our patients. If you wish to complete a 'comment card' you will find them in our waiting room and a sealed box to post them into.
