Overview

dsc01386 (small).jpg

Our aim is to promote excellence in General Practice and keep patients at the heart of everything we do.

At Burntwood Health & Wellbeing we pride ourselves in providing a friendly, welcoming and professional primary care service and are very passionate about giving the highest quality healthcare at all times. 

Anyone can be seen at this practice who have a GP/Practice Nurse related issue.  We see our own registered patients but we will also see patients who are registered elsewhere.   We only have an allocated number of appointments per day and all patients need to be given an appointment time.  Please call ahead to ensure an appointment is available for you. 

We are always interested in feedback so that we can understand what we do well and how we can improve.  Please feel free to leave a review and our Practice Manager, Catrina Cornwall, will always respond promptly.

We look forward to seeing you!

Latest news

Norovirus Outbreak

Noro

You may have heard that there is a current Norovirus outbreak and some hospitals have closed wards due to this. Norovirus is a highly contagious virus which spreads by contact and in the air. If you suffer from diarrhoea, nausea, frontal headache and dizziness you may have norovirus. It is safe to take Imodium or Loperamide for most patients (if in doubt contact us). Ice lollies, crisps and squash are the best foods to consume. Symptoms last for 48-72 hours typically but you may feel weak for about one week. If you have any serious health issues like kidney failure then do contact us. Hopefully in the future there may be a vaccine. Good hygiene will help. Take care!

Winter Pressures

You may have heard on the news about the pressure that the NHS is under due to the winter illnesses that are prevalent, such as flu, bronchitis and norovirus. If you are having unsually severe symptoms or trouble breathing then do let our receptionists know and we will endeavour to see you or direct you to hospital. Please rest assured, our team is doing its absolute best to see as many patients as possible. We hope you do have a happy and healthy Christmas.

Cancer Care

Laptop couple

Cancer has never been more treatable, with cure rates for breast and colon cancer at their highest ever thanks to early detection through National Screening Programmes. Nonetheless, it is still a devastating diagnosis for most patients and we will be here for you every step of the way. Dr Clare Hutchings is our Cancer Lead GP and we have monthly meetings with our practice nurses, MacMillan Nurse and District Nursing Team to ensure seamless care. If you're worried about cancer do not delay - see a GP as soon as possible for the best possible outcome. Prevention is always better than cure and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is one of the surest ways of preventing cancer.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate

This month is 'Movember' where men are encouraged to grow moustaches for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is usually 'silent' initially so if you have a family history of prostate cancer, then do come and see us to discuss the PSA blood test. It is not a straight-forward test but can help to detect this cancer early which gives the best chance of cure.

Book your flu jab now!

Flu is so miserable and potentially dangerous why wouldn't you?! If you're over 65, have heart, lung, kidney or immune problems, diabetes, cancer or are pregnant then please do book as soon as possible. If you are unsure whether you qualify, please just ask our friendly reception staff. Many thanks!

Avoiding Unplanned Admissions

Dr and pt

For patients with chronic diseases we want to do everything we can to prevent deteriorations which may result in an emergency admission to hospital, which can be a stressful experience for patients and their families. If you fit into this category you will be receiving an invitation to come and discuss your 'care plan' with a nominated GP. Obviously sometimes admissions are necessary but our aim is to keep you in better health so that there is hopefully less need for this.

Over 75's Nominated GP

Old couple

We recently sent letters to all of our patients aged over 75 giving them a named GP who will be their regular doctor for administrative and clinical purposes. Where possible patients have been allocated to the GP who they most often see. If your named GP is not available then another GP will be available to deal with any issues. You are fully entitled to change your named GP if you have a particular preference.
