E‐Consult is a new service being launched in August which enables patients to access 24/7 medical advice via the Practice website.

This provides self‐help guides and videos about the most common General Practice conditions, symptom checkers and signposting to other services and it also provides eConsults.This allows   patients to submit a condition based questionnaire to the GP for a response by the end of the next working day with feedback and treatment options.  This service is not for urgent problems and unfortunately is not available to those under the age of 18.

In 2014, a six‐month study examined the benefits of providing e‐Consult to 133,000 patients and resulted in a 400‐hour reduction in GP appointment time.E‐Consult has shown that 60% of patients were able to resolve their health concerns without visiting a GP. The features and benefits of e‐Consult are:‐

♦ Significant improvements in patient access to their GP

♦ Better health outcomes through earlier detection of significant symptoms and earlier intervention

♦ Better Practice efficiency with more focused use of clinical capacity, shorter waiting times and fewer requests for GP appointments

♦ Reduced attendance at urgent care settings such as walk‐in centres or A&E

♦ A safe, convenient way for patients to self‐manage or consult with their own GP

CQC – What standards you have a right to expect from the regulation of your GP practice

The Care Quality Commission

CQC Report Published 8th May 2019

(CQC) are the independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England. They make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage services to improve.

They monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety then publish their findings, including performance ratings to help people choose care.

They also protect the interests of vulnerable people, including those whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act. They put the views, experiences, health and wellbeing of people who use services at the centre of their work, and have a range of powers they can use to take action if people are getting for care.By law, all GP practices in England must make sure that the care and treatment they provide meet national standards of quality and safety. The CQC register GP practices if they can show them that they are meeting these standards.

If GP practices are not registered with the CQC they will not be able to provide services. The CQC inspect GP practices to make sure they are meeting these standards, and can do so at any time if there are concerns about the the care provided.

For more information on these standards please read through the ‘What standards you have a right to expect from the regulation of your GP practice’ page or visit – What standards you have a right to expect from the regulation of your GP practiceYou can expect to be respected, involved and told what’s happening at every stage.You (or someone acting on your behalf) will be involved in discussions about your care and treatment.

You will be treated in a safe and accessible place.

Your GP practice will take appropriate action if they suspect that a patient is at risk of harm. It is not possible to have a lift installed in the building. The practice has fitted secure handrails to the staircase and installed a buzzer at the door to call for help.

Your general health and welfare needs will be met by staff who are properly qualified.

There will always be enough members of staff available to provide safe care and meet your needs.

If you are too ill to attend surgery or if you are housebound you may telephone the surgery to request a home visit.

Routine health care is no longer provided by visiting at home and patient’s travel arrangements cannot be taken into consideration when deciding if a home visit is necessary or not.

The receptionist will require certain information when you are requesting a home visit and a doctor is likely to call you back to discuss your medical problem.

This is to ensure the doctor has all of the necessary details and so the doctor can ascertain how urgent the visit is.

Please help the receptionist by giving the information requested. If you need to arrange a home visit please telephone the surgery before 11.00am if at all possible.

It is up to the doctor to decide whether you need a home visit or not and so please expect the doctor to  phone you back.

The receptionists will be happy to let you know if the result was normal.

The best time to phone us for results is in the afternoon between 1400 and 1600

Please always ensure that we have your correct postal address and post code along with your correct phone number and mobile number, if you have one.

This enables us to contact you should we need to - it may be that one of the medical team has called in sick and we want to prevent a wasted journey for you or simply that we need some information from you.

All women between the ages of 25 and 64 are eligible for a free cervical screening test every three to five years.

The screening intervals are:

Age group (years)

First invitation 25 - 49 3 yearly

50 - 64 5 yearly

65+ The NHS will only  screen those who have not been screened since age 50 or have had recent abnormal tests

The NHS call and recall system invites women who are registered with a GP.

It also keeps track of any follow-up investigation, and, if all is well, recalls the woman for screening in three or five years time.

It is therefore important that all women ensure their GP has their correct name and address details and inform them if these change.

Women who have not had a recent test may be offered one when they attend their GP or family planning clinic on another matter.

Women should receive their first invitation for routine screening at 25.

What if I have had a hysterectomy?

Women require 1 clear cervical vault smear after a hysterectomy, if this is clear then there is no routine screening necessary. If you have been called incorreclty for a smear please let us know.

Aged 16 - 24? Get tested for Chlamydia today...

Chlamydia is common sexually transmitted infection.

People under the age of 25 years are most at risk, and therefore need regular check ups.

Chlamydia is known as a very quiet disease because most people who contract it do not experience any noticeable symptoms.

Untreated, Chlamydia can cause long-term damage such as infertility.

All it takes to get tested is an appointment during surgery hours with the nurse and we urge our patients to come up and get tested.

If you would prefer not to talk with a nurse please complete an E Consult and we can leave a test form for you at the reception desk.

All you will to do is provide  a first catch urine sample from your first wee of the day and then leave the sample at the desk for completion by nurses.

You may self refer for counselling to talk a service provided for cognitive behaviour therapy and counselling

GP Earnings

All GP Practices are required to declare the mean earnings (ie.average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each Practice.

The average pay for GPs working in the Emsworth Surgery in 2015/16 was £99,649 calculated before tax and national insurance. This is for 8 doctors who worked in the Practice for 6 or more months, 3 worked full time and 5 were part time.

NHS England requires that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the Practice is publicised and the required disclosure is shown above.  However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the Practice and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other Practice.

Covid 19 Update and advise recommended today

Statement from NHS in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. 

What to do if you suspect Covid 19 ? 

All COVID-19 concerns should still initially be directed through the 111online coronavirus service

How are we working to help keep us all as safe as possible?

Our new ways of working are now more bedded in, thank you for using online and remote options where possible.

Use of e-consult is 10 times higher than, so thank you for changing the way you access your surgery. Doctors and Nurses are working remotely where possible and a huge proportion of our work is now being managed safely, and satisfactorily online, over the phone, or via video consult.

will do our absolute best to help (either phone or face-to-face) with any of our clinical staff.


 If you are attending an appointment at the practice, we would ask you to read the following instructions.

  • Please do not attend the practice if you have any Covid-19 symptoms. Call us and reschedule.
  • Please wear a mask if you are able to - this is to protect other patients and staff at the practice.
  • Do not arrive too early for your appointment - no longer than 10 minutes prior to your appointment.
  • Please bring hand sanitiser or use the sanitiser available in practice.

Sincerely on behalf 

The Partners & The Whole Team

Emsworth Medical Practice 

The Emsworth Alliance volunteers are kindly offering to help support those patients having to self isolate and sheild themselves, please click above to see how they may be able to help you

The information below is NHS advice for those patients who are recommended to shield from covid-19

The safest course of action is for you to stay at home at all times and avoid all face-to-face contact for at least twelve weeks from today, except from carers and healthcare workers who you must see as part of your medical care.

This will protect you by stopping you from coming into contact with the virus.

If you are in touch with friends, family or a support network in your community who can support you to get food and medicine, follow the advice in this letter. If you do not have contacts who can help support you go to or call 0800 0288327, the Government’s dedicated helpline.

If, at any point, you think you have developed symptoms of coronavirus, such as a new, continuous cough and/or high temperature (above 37.8 °C), seek clinical advice using the NHS 111 online coronavirus service ). If you do not have access to the internet, call NHS 111. Do this as soon as you get symptoms.

You, or the person you care for, should:

  • strictly avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). These symptoms include high temperature (above 37.8 °C) and/or a new and continuous cough
  • not leave your home
  • not attend any gatherings. This includes gatherings of friends and families in private spaces e.g. family homes, weddings and religious services
  • not go out for shopping, leisure or travel. When arranging food or medication deliveries, these should be left at the door to minimise contact
  • keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media
  • use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services
  • regularly wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Ask carers or support workers who visit your home to do the same.

The rest of your household should support you to stay safe and stringently follow guidance on social distancing, reducing their contact outside the home. In your home, you should:

  • minimise the time you spend with others in shared spaces (kitchen, bathroom and sitting areas) and keep shared spaces well ventilated
  • aim to keep 2 metres (3 steps) away from others and encourage them to sleep in a different bed where possible • use separate towels and, if possible, use a separate bathroom from the rest of the household, or clean the bathroom after every use
  • avoid using the kitchen when others are present, take your meals back to your room to eat where possible, and ensure all kitchenware is cleaned thoroughly.  If the rest of your household are able to follow this guidance, there is no need for them to take the full protective measures to keep you safe

You will still get the medical care you need during this period. We are considering alternative options for managing your care and will be in touch if any changes are needed. Your hospital care team will be doing the same. We also advise that:

  1. Carers and support workers who come to your home

Any essential carers or visitors who support you with your everyday needs can continue to visit, unless they have any of the symptoms of coronavirus. All visitors should wash their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, on arrival and often.

It is also a good idea to speak to your carers about what happens if one of them becomes unwell. If you need help with care but you’re not sure who to contact please visit

  1. Medicines that you routinely take

The government is helping pharmacies to deliver prescriptions. Prescriptions will continue to cover the same length of time as usual. If you do not currently have your prescriptions collected or delivered, you can arrange this by:

  • Asking someone who can pick up your prescription from the local pharmacy, (this is the best option, if possible)
  • Contacting your pharmacy to ask them to help you find a volunteer (who will have been ID checked) or deliver it to you

You may also need to arrange for collection or delivery of hospital specialist medication that is prescribed to you by your hospital care team.

  1. Planned GP practice appointments

Wherever possible, we will provide care by phone, email or online. But if we decide you need to be seen in person, we will contact you to arrange your visit to the surgery or a visit in your home.

  1. Planned hospital appointments

NHS England have written to your hospital to ask them to review any ongoing care that you have with them. It is possible that some clinics and appointments will be cancelled or postponed. Your hospital or clinic will contact you if any changes need to be made to your care or treatment. Otherwise you should assume your care or treatment is taking place as planned. Please contact your hospital or clinic directly if you have any questions about a specific appointment.

  1. Support with daily living

Please discuss your daily needs during this period of staying at home with carers, family, friends, neighbours or local community groups to see how they can support you. If you do not have anyone who can help you, please visit

This letter is evidence, for your employer, to show that you cannot work outside the home. You do not need to get a fit note from your GP. If you need help from the benefit system visit

  1. Urgent medical attention

If you have an urgent medical question relating to your existing medical condition, or the condition of the person you are caring for please contact us, or your specialist hospital care team, directly. Where possible, you will be supported by phone or online. If your clinician decides you need to be seen in person, the NHS will contact you to arrange a visit in your home, or where necessary, treatment in hospital.

To help the NHS provide you with the best care if you need to go to hospital as a result of catching coronavirus, we ask that you prepare a single hospital bag. This should include your emergency contact, a list of the medications you take (including dose and frequency), any information on your planned care appointments and things you would need for an overnight stay (snacks, pyjamas, toothbrush, medication etc). If you have an advanced care plan, please include that.

  1. Looking after your mental well-being

We understand that this may be a worrying time and you may find staying at home and having limited contact frustrating. At times like these, it can be easy to fall into unhealthy patterns of behaviour, which can make you feel worse.  Simple things you can do to stay mentally and physically active during this time include:

  • look for ideas for exercises to do at home on the NHS website
  • spend time doing things you enjoy – reading, cooking and other indoor hobbies
  • try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, drink enough water, exercise regularly, and try to avoid smoking, alcohol and recreational drugs
  • try spending time with the windows open to let in fresh air, arranging space to sit and see a nice view (if possible) and get some natural sunlight. Get out into the garden or sit on your doorstep if you can, keeping a distance of at least 2 metres from others

You can find additional advice and support from Every Mind Matters ( and the NHS mental health and wellbeing advice website (

Further information on coronavirus, including guidance from Public Health England, can be found on the

and  websites.

Advice for Asthmatics During COVID Pandemic

Advice for COPD Patients During Covid Pandemic

Do I need a new inhaler?

We are getting lots of requests for asthma inhalers in patients that haven’t had any for years, and also requests for ‘rescue packs’ for COVID. These requests are coming from patients with chronic lung problems in general – not just asthma. This is inappropriate and not backed up by any evidence. The Asthma UK COVID-19 page is a great resource to get advice and support. (

Information for Diabetics during COVID Pandemic

ALL PATIENTS TAKING  the medications listed below for Diabetes should follow the advice set out below

Empagliflozin / Dapagliflozin / Canagliflozin for control alongside their insulin are at particularly high risk of complications if admitted with Covid-related symptoms.

  • People with type 1 diabetes and adjunctive SGLT2 inhibitor use should be advised to STOP it immediately (even if well) and rely on higher dose insulin for the short to intermediate term
  • People with Type 2 Diabetes treated with insulin who have previously experienced ketoacidosis during illness should similarly be advised to STOP it immediately
  • People with Type 2 Diabetes on oral agents can continue to take SGLT2 inhibitors if well but should stop immediately if they develop Covid-related symptoms
  • People without diabetes (or with pre-diabetes) who have high cardiovascular risk and have been offered SGLT2 inhibition as a cardiovascular risk reduction strategy should STOP it immediately (even if well)
  • No patient admitted to hospital with Covid-related symptoms should be prescribed an SGLT2 inhibitor
