Share your views about accessing GP practices

Share your views about accessing GP practices

Patients, carers and members of the public in Northumberland are being urged to have their say about accessing healthcare at GP practices.

NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which is responsible for buying and planning the county’s healthcare, would like to better understand patient experiences to help inform any future changes to accessing GP services in the county.

Through an online survey, the CCG wants to gather patients’ views on issues such as which healthcare professional they are willing to see, how quickly they want to be seen, if weekend and evening appointments are useful, and how far they are willing to travel or if a telephone or online consultation would be preferred.

The survey is available here and is open until 25 February.

It will take around 10 minutes to complete. And as a thank-you, those sharing their views will be given the option to be entered into a prize draw where they could win a £100, £50 or £25 High Street voucher.

For more information or to receive paper copies of the survey, please email the NHS Engagement Team norccg.comms@nhs.net or call 01670 335 157.

Village Handyperson Contract

The Parish Council would like to invite contractors to tender for the role of Parish Handyperson.  The contract is for 4 years (April 2022 to March 2026).

This is an outdoor role undertaking routine maintenance.  We seek someone who will be able to work on their own initiative, be able to carry out manual duties, be good at DIY and minor repairs, be able to operate machinery and use equipment, and have a good general knowledge and understanding of safe working practices. A flexible approach is required as the Handyperson will be required to respond to (occasional) call outs in an emergency.  It would also be helpful if the Handyperson had attended a course or had relevant experience of inspecting playgrounds.

The Handyperson is required to have their own Public Liability insurance.

Contract documentation can be obtained by contacting the Clerk, Catherine Harrison, on 01434 682348 (office hours only please) or via email ridingmillclerk@gmail.com.
