Another Successful Carers Week at South Holderness Medical Practice 2017
Carers Week 2017
MIU Freedom of Information - Holderness Health Alliance
As 4 Holderness Practices last week, we sent a joint letter to Jonathan Beckerlegge, Chair of the ERYCCG Audit and Integrated Governance Committee. This followed a Freedom of Information (FOI) request we sent to the CCG regarding the Urgent Care Review which has, as you will know been undertaken over the last few months. We remain very concerned at the outcome and the adverse effect on our patients care.
The four Practices signing the letter are
Church View Surgery Hedon,
Eastgate Medical Practice Hornsea,
- Hedon Group Practice
- South Holderness Medical Practice Withernsea
Below is our letter so which shows that we hold the CCG to account and help us get the best outcome for our patients. Our practices serve one of the most rural locations in Yorkshire and have some of the highest health needs nationally. In addition, the area is served by poor transport links and there are significant pockets of severe deprivation.
Our letter is a detailed response and you will note that our overriding concern is that the Gunning Principles have not been followed. We feel that there should be an immediate halt and a review of the whole process prior to irreversible damage to healthcare in our community.
Please note we no longer accept telephone requests for repeat medication. This is to prevent mistakes and allow our team to dispense medication with less interuptions. This will allow them to provide you with a better service.
Training Closures - We will be closed from 12noon on Wednesday 20th September from 12pm please note you can contact our out of hours on 111

There is currently heightened interest and demand in the MenB immunisation programme leading to an increased volume of queries to screening and immunisation and health protection teams within PHE and NHS England. The national stock of Bexsero® should only be used to vaccinate children who are eligible for NHS vaccination”.
Parents seeking the vaccine privately will be liable for the full costs of the vaccine and any additional administration charges that the private provider may apply. We do not provide this as a private service. We understand that GSK has supply constraints on the Bexsero vaccine for the private market. Practices are not permitted to use centrally-procured stock for the national programme to vaccinate private patients or any patients outside the eligible cohort (other than those at high risk as defined in the green book).
For further information please see: NHS Choices - Men B Vaccination
In April 2015 a group of Doctors, Nurses and Administration staff from the surgery completed Dementia Friends training. A Dementia Friend learns a little bit more about what it is like to live with Dementia and then turns that understanding into action. As recognition of this worthwhile training we were awarded with a certificate by MP Graham Stuart.
