Macmillan

Macmillan Coffee Morning on September 28th

Saxmundham Health staff put healthy eating on hold for the morning to participate in Macmillan Cancer Support’s attempt to host the world’s biggest coffee morning!  More than a dozen staff who work at the surgery brought in cakes and baked goods to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, with similar events taking place all across the country. The event was organised by Care Navigator Keziah, a keen baker, with the cakes laid out beautifully in the staff kitchen and raised over £110!

Our Telephone Calls are Recorded

All of our telephone calls are recorded as part of our telephone call recording policy. Access and playback of recordings is carefully controlled and governed by data protection legislation. Only suitably training staff with the appropriate authority can access calls.

Access to calls may be for a number of reasons. The three main reasons are checking accuracy, answering complaints, and for staff training to improve service and skills.

 

No Longer Providing Medication for Periods of Travel Longer than 28 Days

To ensure the safety of our patients whilst out of the area Saxmundham Health will no longer provide medication for periods of travel longer than 28 days. This is important because medical conditions should have ongoing clinical oversight which cannot be provided whilst patients are absent. Our new rule is in line with guidelines issued by the Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group and is NHS policy . If you are planning to be away please give our Dispensary as much notice as possible that you will need up to 28 days’ medication from the first day of your planned trip. Thank you for your understanding.  Click here for details.
