Notice of GP Retirement
Dr P J Staszek , GP Partner, will be retiring from his post on 31st August 2018 after 14 years valuable service with the practice. He is wished all the very best in his well-earned retirement.
Dr K F Caley, Salaried GP, will be resigning from her post on 2nd August 2018 after 3 years valuable service with the practice due to re-location following her forthcoming marriage. She is wished all the very best for the future.
Due to the above resignations and difficulty in GP recruitment, it will be necessary for the practice to engage the services of locum doctors until replacement GPs are found.
Change to Practice Boundary
As the practice will be losing two GPs from August 2018 and has not been able to recruit replacement doctors, it is necessary that existing patients continue to receive a good and safe service.
In the circumstances it is the intention of the practice to change its boundary and consider removing Hellaby from the practice area so that new patients from Hellaby will no longer be able to register with the practice. Please Note: This will not affect patients already registered with the practice who live in Hellaby.
We would like to offer the opportunity for you to comment on this issue or to discuss it with you.
We will be holding our Patient Participation Group Meeting (PPG Group) on Thursday, 28th June 2018 at 6pm where this will be discussed and new members are welcome, or you can contact Practice Manager/one of the GP Partners to discuss.

Third party ordering of repeat prescriptions on behalf of patients
We NO LONGER accept any repeat prescription requests from community pharmacies on behalf of patients.
Patients (or their carer, nominated family member/friend) will have to order repeat prescriptions directly from the surgery themselves.
Collections of prescriptions from the practice by community pharmacies on behalf of patients will not be affected.
The 23 practices made/making this change, with full support of NHS Rotherham CCG, have carefully considered all options, engaged extensively with key stakeholders (patients, carers, patient participation groups and voluntary groups).
