Welcome to Baddeley Green Surgery
The doctors and staff at Baddeley Green Surgery in Stoke-On-Trent are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information under Further Information, at the bottom of the page.
We are now live and using with One Health and Care, this is a digital shared care record for people living in Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent. For further information please either click on the link to watch a short video or view the poster displayed below.
Covid-19 vaccination (Whitfield PCN). Update 31.12.20
We have now vaccinated most patients over 75 years old (almost 500 patients today). We expect more vaccines to be delivered next week. If you are 75 years old, or older, and have not been invited to be vaccinated, please inform the reception. We will be immunising younger age groups as vaccines become available.
When we have requested pathology samples (urine/stools/swabs etc) it is important to get these samples to the laboratory and processed as soon as possible. Samples are normally collected by 1pm Monday-Friday. If you have a sample you can leave it in the new sample box by the back door. If your sample is provided after 1pm you can take it to Cobridge Health Centre where the last collection leaves at 4.45pm.
We do seem to be getting an increasing number of urine samples put into the Practice Sample Box. Often the bottles are unlabelled and we have no idea who the sample relates to and there is no clinical information at all. We simply cannot process such samples. If you have contacted the Surgery and you are asked to provide a sample please ensure that it is in the appropriate bottle with the details filled out and that you give as much information as possible to the receptionist so this can be entered onto your notes. The receptionists have a checklist to ensure the clinician has all the relevant information.
It is obvious to all of us at Baddeley Green Surgery that we are seeing increasing numbers of patients who are suffering with mental health problems. Once again I would like to remind you of the contact details for the mental health services locally;
Young Minds have a useful guide regarding Coronavirus and mental health
Stem 4 are newcomers and offer advice and a number of topics including eating disorders, anxiety and depression in young people.
For parents of children who are struggling contact Mind who will signpost and advise how to get support
The NSPCC also offer help on how to manage and support children with special educational needs and ongoing mental health issues through this difficult time.
One factor which is associated with mental health problems is financial difficulties. This is understandable in this very difficult time. If you are worried about money then might I direct you to contact the Citizens Advice Bureau on Tel: on 01782 408625 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a confidential FREE service for money and /or debt advice. I know that several patients have already found this service to be extremely useful.
We are still doing 90% of all consultations by telephone. If you wish to speak with a GP please do ring to make an appointment. The Doctor who is working in reception is, for the most part, dealing with urgent problems and cannot be readily available to discuss routine matters. If you need to consult with a Doctor on the same day, please ring at 8.00am or 1.30pm when slots become available. Face to face consultations can be arranged if the Doctor feels this is clinically indicated.
I will of course keep you updated on all future developments. Thank you for your continued support.
Every good wish to you all.
