Could you get an appointment??  Last week Sunnyside had 49 missed appointments.  

With each clinical appointment costing the NHS an average of £30 that's £1470 of NHS money wasted but more importantly 49 extra patients could've been offered appointments last week.     Almost 75% of these appointments were with the Nursing Team.

Please be sure to cancel any appointments you can't attend so they can be offered to others and reduce waiting times.

Improving the Appointment System from 1st July 2019

We have been working towards improving the appointment system and being able to offer more 'on the day' appointments with one of the Acute Illness Team or a GP.   Hopefully this will also help alleviate some of these missed 'pre-booked' appointments.   Please click on the Appointments tab for more information.

You can now email your repeat prescriptions requests to:  nhskernowccg.sunnysideprescriptions@nhs.net.  You must include 3 patient identifiers :  1) Full Name  2) Date of Birth 3) first line of your address.  For more details click on the prescription tab.

Jane Nash and Maria Patten were very honoured to receive an award on behalf of Sunnyside Team from The University of Exeter Medical School for :-

'Excellence and innovation in clinical teaching team award for GP Practices in the Truro locality'

The award was very much presented on the Medical Student's experience of the practice from their first meeting with the reception team, communication and planning, the way they felt included in the team right through to the clinical teaching they received from GPs and Nurses.   We are very proud of this award


DO YOU LOOK AFTER SOMEONE WHO IS ILL, FRAIL, DISABLED OR MENTALLY ILL?

We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support. We know that carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.

Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24-hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer. Carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not least, a listening ear when things get too much.

As a Carer, you are also entitled to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services. A Carer’s Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a carer and the possible ways help could be given. It also look at the needs of the person you care for. There is no charge for an assessment.  You can complete an assessment form  by following this link:

If you are a carer, please ask at Reception for a CARERS IDENTIFICATION 

which you can complete to let us know about your caring responsibilities
