Dr Grace retirement

Dr Grace has asked us to inform you that she will be retiring from the surgery at the end of April 2017.  She would like to say the following;

"It has been an absolute honour and privilege to work here and I will greatly miss all the patients and staff.  I've had the best job in the world but as it requires such a lot of time, energy and responsibility, I feel the time is right to hand over to my younger colleagues.  I hope you will all continue to say hello when you seen me around Leyland."

I hope you will join us in thanking her for all her hard work over the last 30 years and wishing her the very best for the future.

Patient online access - Error code 7001

We are aware that some patient are experiencing difficulties accessing their medical records online.  They are getting an error message with the code 7001.  This has been happening since November 2016 and we have been in constant contact with the computer company to try to resolve this.  Their service relationship manager has informed us of the following:

"This error is due to a bug in the software, it is difficult for support to say when the fix will be, the developers have to identify the issue, write a fix and then this has to go through internal testing before it would go to controlled roll out and onto general release.

Due to the nature of the defect we have requested a fix to be included in the next update which I would expect to be late spring/early summer but this is very much subject to change. If other defects are found that have a higher priority such as things that pose a clinical risk this would push the fix for this particular issue further down the queue.

I apologise for the length of time that patients have been affected."

The practice are unable to resolve this issue themselves therefore we would respectfully request that patients do not continue to contact the surgery.  We will update you as we are made aware of any updates.
