Fit For Work


GPs and employers throughout England and Wales can now refer their employed patients and employees who have been, or are likely to be, off sick from work for four weeks or more for a voluntary occupational health assessment.


The occupational health professional will identify obstacles preventing the employee from returning to work. A Return to Work Plan will be agreed providing recommendations tailored to the employee’s needs, which can replace the need for a fit note.

All patients are now required to be allocated a named GP that will have overall responsibility for the care and support that their surgery will provide.  This is for administrative purposes only and does not prevent you from seeing any other GP in the practice.

Offering and Promoting Patient Online Services - Statement of Intent ( posted on Sep 30, 2014 )

Have Your Prescriptions Sent Directly to Your Pharmacy of Choice ( posted on Jul 25, 2014 )

Electronic Prescription Service - We can now send your prescription electronically to the Pharmacy of your choice.


This will mean: 

  1. You will no longer need to collect your green paper prescription from the surgery.  We will send it elctronically to your Pharmacy of choice, saving you the need to collect it from Bilbrook Medical Centre.
  2. You will have a choice of where you can collect your medicines from and they will be sent directly to the Pharmacy you have chosen - near to where you live, work or even shop.

 How Does It Work: 

  1. You need to choose a Pharmacy for us to send your prescription to.  This is called a NOMINATION. Simply speak to your pharmacist (Chemist of Choice) or a receptionist at Bilbrook Medical Centre.
  2. You can cancel or amend your nomination at any time - just speak to your Chemist or a Receptionist at Bilbrook Medical Centre
  3. Controlled drugs and some other items are not currently available using this service and so a green prescription will still need to be printed for you or your chosen Chemist (You will need to arrange this with your Chemist) to collect from the surgery.

Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone.  This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.  This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you. 


You have a choice.  If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. 


If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet "How information about you helps us to provide better care" and if you wish, to complete an opt out form.

I am fully aware that I can change my mind at any time and will inform the practice if this is the case.

Acute / Emergency Appointments—What is acute and what is not acute? ( posted on Aug 2, 2013 )

We aim to be available for you when needed and have included a little information about appointments to help you get the most from your visit.


You can book a variety of appointments via the telephone:


Urgent Appointments

If you feel that your issue is urgent and you need to see us on the day that you
telephone. This will be with the duty doctor for that day.  Each day a doctor is assigned to attend to urgent appointments only– he or she will not be available for routine
appointments on that day but you might still see them in the building.


Other appointments—Pre-bookable, same day or extended hours

 If you feel that it would be appropriate to see us at a future time we release a number of pre-bookable appointments for patients who want to be able to book ahead. There are a
number of appointments that are only opened up at 8am for that day.  We also offer a
limited number of appointments outside our normal opening hours, however it should be noted there are no nursing staff in the building and no telephone contact during extended hours.


Appointments are scheduled to last up to 10 minutes. However, you can request a double
appointment if you feel it is needed.


You can specify to see a doctor or nurse of your choice but might have to wait longer to see a specific doctor but we hope that any member of our nursing or medical teams will be able to help you.


We understand the sensitive nature of some enquires. If you feel comfortable to do so, sharing information with the reception staff can help you gain assistance more efficiently and with the most appropriate person, which might be a nurse, or a doctor with a special interest in your condition.


It may help you to know that requests for ‘sick notes’ can sometimes be dealt with on the telephone—Please ask at reception for more details


The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) ( posted on Aug 2, 2013 )

The Patient Participation Group has raised this for awareness about The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which replaced the old E111 in 2006.


Your EHIC lets you get state healthcare at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. It will cover you for treatment that is needed to allow you to continue your stay until your planned return. It also covers you for treatment of pre-existing medical conditions and for routine maternity care, as long as you're not going abroad to give birth.


The EHIC is valid in all European Economic Area (EEA) countries, including Switzerland. You can apply for a free EHIC online. However, other unofficial websites may charge you if you apply through them.




The EHIC replaced the old E111 in 2006. The card is not an alternative to travel insurance. It will not cover any private medical healthcare or costs such as mountain rescue in ski resorts, being flown back to the UK, or lost or stolen property. Therefore, it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy. Some insurers now insist you hold an EHIC and many will waive the excess if you have one.


For more information go to www.nhs.uk/ehic or to apply for your free EHIC go to www.ehic.org.uk/Internet/startApplication.do

Text Message Reminder ( posted on Aug 2, 2013 )

Do you want a text reminder when you have a booked appointment?

Or would you like to receive a text for your normal test results? 


Please ask at reception about SMS Messaging

South Staffordshire Good Life Website ( posted on Mar 18, 2013 )

A new website has been set up providing information on healthy activities in South Staffordshire. It's packed with ideas, information, a great club search and even mini films to show you what your neighbours are up to.



Walking for Health ( posted on Mar 18, 2013 )

South Staffordshire offers miles of walks through breath taking countryside. In the surgery and on the South Staffordshire Council website (www.sstaffs.gov.uk) or South Staffordshire Good Life website (www.southstaffordshire.thegoodlife.uk.net) you can find leaflets for different walking routes and trails of varying lengths on offer throughout the district including a series of circular walks, as well as trails at both Baggeridge Country Park and South Staffordshire Railway Walk.


Walking is not only fun, it is an excellent form of exercise. Evidence shows that brisk walking for 30 minutes everyday can play an important role in the prevention of ill health.


Get the family involved and start walking this year

Asthma Practice Update ( posted on Mar 18, 2013 )

As part of the review and updating of care provided by the practice we have been looking into asthma management.  In light of recent updated guidelines (NICE: Quality Standard for Asthma March 2013) we feel it is a good time to re-review the practice’s asthma care and try to incorporate the latest guidance into the care we provide patients.


The nursing unit and doctors shall be involved in re-structuring, education and
implementation of our new asthma care plans within the surgery over the coming months.  It is hoped that as part of the routine asthma review process we shall be in a position to offer individualised care plans.  This will mean a shared management approach and empowerment to patients.  The team of course will continue to be at hand to advise and review.  It is by no means a substitute to reviews at the surgery but may mean less asthma attacks and early start of treatment.  Ultimately providing up-to-date care and better-controlled asthma.

Patients Participation Group - looking for new members ( posted on Mar 15, 2013 )

We are looking for new members to join the Patient’s Participation Group to represent all age groups. We meet quarterly on a Wednesday morning at 10.30am to discuss changes to the surgery and services that affect patients.


The group consists of 16 patients. Not all attend all meetings and instead give feedback via email or a telephone discussion with the Practice Manager. This is to ensure we gain views from across the patient age range and appreciate that due to time or childcare issues it is not always possible to attend meetings during the day.



If you are interested in joining, leave your name with the reception team and you will be sent papers for the next meeting together with an invitation to attend.

Repeat Medication ( posted on Aug 7, 2012 )

Please check your review date, you can order medication up to that day, but you will need an appointment for a medication review after this, should you need to order.


Please allow 48 hours (2 working days) for a prescription to be processed and if possible order your medication one week before you run out.


Please do not allow yourself to run out

Virtual Patient Group ( posted on Jan 12, 2012 )

If you have an email address and wish to participate please let reception know.  Where an email address is shared we can only accept one name.
