Falkland House Surgery Noticeboard
THE PATIENTS PARTICIPATION GROUP(PPG) provides an opportunity for all patients registered with Falkland House Surgery to have their say about services provided by the Surgery or in the wider health service.
Significant changes are taking place within the NHS - your involvement with the PPG enables you to learn about these changes and express your views, ideas, and opinions and give feedback.
The PPG meets every quarter with representatives of the Practice, but you don’t need to attend meetings. You can be part of the group on a virtual network (email) and still be involved in all that is taking place.
The PPG produces a quarterly newsletter providing a wide range of information; undertakes fund raising events to procure equipment for the surgery, e.g. defibrillator, phlebotomy chair; and endeavours to keep abreast of changes taking place in the NHS so that you can be informed.
Please visit the Patient Group Page for more information.

Early morning surgeries
We are moving our early morning Monday surgery to a Tuesday morning instead. The early surgery will still run from 7am - 8am.
New telephone system
We have had a new, upgraded telephone system installed at the surgery. The main difference is that we now have call recording to assist with training and monitoring so patients need to be aware that all calls are now recorded. In addition to this we have had another telephone line installed to help with capacity during the busy morning period.
Why Weight Sheffield
Below is a link to the website for 'Why Weight Sheffield' a free self-referral programme designed to help people achieve long term weight loss though a healthy lifestyle.
Our Patient Participation Group has successfully applied to the British Heart Foundation in conjunction with the Dept of Health to be supplied with a community defibrillator and cabinet. This is a fantastic result for the whole community. A big thank you to Lynn and her team of dedicated volunteers.The cabinet will be sited on the outside wall of the surgery so will be accessible to surgery staff during practice opening hours as well as members of the public when the surgery is closed. More information can be found on our Patient Group page.
Electronic Prescription Service - A new way to get your medicines and appliances. Electronic Prescripton Service
We now have some literature available in other formats eg - Practice Leaflet in large font, Stop Smoking guide in braille, childhood immunisation DVD. Due to limited supplies some of these items will only be available to borrow rather than keep. As part of this initiative could you please let reception know if you have any particular information/communication needs so that we can improve our service to you.
Our premises have suitable access for disabled patients. As we have on-road parking only, please ensure that you park in a safe place and do not obstruct or inconvenience our neighbours.
