New App

Local GPs in Stockport are encouraging residents to get ‘appy’ and look after their health by using their smartphones and tablets.

It’s estimated that four out of five people in the borough have a smartphone and medics want to tap in to this growing trend.

A Stockport Health & Care Finder app has been created to give people a chance to take more control of their own health. This will help to increase people’s understanding of how to use and access local health and social care services, self-care options and lifestyle opportunities.

The app will give users rapid and easy access to up-to-date local health and social care information including a directory of pharmacies, GPs, hospitals, clinics, care homes and other services.

At a touch of a button users will be able to find the services that are nearest to them at any time. For example, if you’re trying to find a late night chemist, the app will automatically sort out which are the closest to you and then give you the opening hours, address and contact details.

You can also set up favourites for faster access to the services you’re interested in and dial them directly from your app.

There are links on it to videos about how best to take care of yourself if you are ill and how to prevent ill health. The app can also be used to send out reminders about health checks and screening entitlements.

It’s also hoped the app will help to encourage high users of NHS services to get the right care in the right place.

HEARING LOOP

Hearing Loop

We have today installed a hearing loop at the practice. A hearing loop is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting. We hope this will help our hard of hearing patients have a better experience at the practice.

Adswood Road Surgery and Heaton Moor Medical Group are proposing to merge services into one group practice.

What does this mean for Adswood Road Surgery?

Patients will remain registered at the practice and can carry on using Adswood Road Surgery.

The building will be refurbished and remain open.

Opening/ closing times Monday- Friday will remain the same.

Adswood Road Surgery will still have the same receptionists and clinical team that is currently working at the practice.

You can choose to use any of the other practices under Heaton Moor Medical Group across Stockport for your convenience, if you would prefer to attend an appointment elsewhere.

This merge will give you greater access to services under Heaton Moor Medical Group.

If you have any concerns, questions or comments on this proposed merger please ask the receptionist who will assist you with this, or complete a form from reception.

Thank you

Within the parameters of this 'implied consent' we will continue to use this number to make contact with you regarding your medical care and to enable you to receive SMS messages from the surgery for appointment reminders or other matters relating to your registration as a patient at the practice. Those contact details will not be divulged to a third party. If you no longer want us to contact you in this way please inform our reception team so that your medical records can be updated. There is nothing that you need to do as unless you notify us differently, your existing contact details will remain on your GP health record for use in this way. It is also important to make sure that you tell us about any changes to your contact details as we will always use the details that we have on your record until we are informed differently.
