New Patient Calling System

We are delighted to announce that we have a new patient calling system in the waiting rooms at our Potton and Gamlingay surgeries.  The new screens display patient information and are there to call patients for their appointments.  The new system replaces the old tannoy system.

CQC Inspection

The Care Quality Commission carried out an announced comprehensive inspection of our Practice on 3rd May 2016.

 We are delighted and extremely proud to report that our Practice was rated as “Good”  in providing care to our patients that is deemed to be safe, effective, responsive, caring and well-led.   This applied to all population groups including older people, people with long term conditions, families and young people, working age people and the recently retired, people in vulnerable circumstances and people experiencing poor mental health.

Greensands Medical Practice CQC Inspection Report

Informing Patients of their named GP    

From April 2015 all GP Practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

Every patient at the Practice has been assigned to one of the GP Partners. This will not impact upon your experience of the care the Practice offers and will not prevent you from seeing any GP in the Practice as you have always done.

If you would like to know who your allocated GP is, please ask us when you next attend or contact Reception who will be happy to help you.
