Kingston Health Hull
Kingston Health Hull would like to announce that we have decided to become members of the Hull Health Forward Confederation (HHFC).
Being a member of this group should ensure that not only will patient care continue to be foremost in our minds but also that our practice will be able to maintain our independence and individuality.
Joining the ranks of the HHFC takes the number of registered patients within this organisation to over 73,000 or approximately 28% of the registered patient population of Hull (Hull CCG figures at December 2017).
Furthermore, given these numbers and the associated funding will mean that monies given to HHFC by NHS England/Hull CCG stay in the area and develop healthcare services to local patients.
Member Practices are:
The Avenues Medical Centre
Clifton House Medical Centre
Princes Medical Centre
Newland Health Centre
Holderness Open Door Surgery
Wolseley Medical Centre
Sydenham Group Practice
Hastings Medical Centre
Oaks Medical Centre
Kingston Health Hull
Laurbel Surgery (Bilton)*
Dr. Chowdhury & Partner
(Park Health Centre)*
How this will affect patients, staff and the Practice?
For the foreseeable future there will be no changes to staff and their current roles. Staff are an invaluable and important part of this process and will be kept informed and involved at all times. Practices will continue to operate as they do currently and patients will see no immediate changes. Patients will be kept informed of any changes via The Patient Participation Group (PPG), notice boards and the Practice website.
Every Mum Matters:
Mental health awareness campaign for new and expectant mums
What is Perinatal Mental Health?
Having a baby is a major life event for mums and dads, and itís natural to experience a range of emotions during and after pregnancy. But if these feelings start to have an impact on day-to-day life, itís time to talk to someone.
Perinatal mental health issues Ė those which occur during pregnancy or during the babyís first year Ė affect one in five women and could have long-lasting effects on the woman and her family if left untreated.
But many perinatal mental health issues are treatable and recognising the signs early and seeking support promptly improves recovery and outcomes for mums and their babies.
The Every Mum Matters campaign has launched in Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire to support new and expectant mums and their families to be able to recognise symptoms of perinatal mental health problems early and encourage them to seek help promptly. Specialist services and support are available in these areas.

Due to the Covid 19 virus currently circulating the globe you may see some changes over the coming weeks at the surgery. As per government guidance, we are going to telephone consults and triage from the week commencing 16th of March 2020.
This means that patients wishing to see a GP will be added to a same day call back list, GPs will then use their clinical discretion.
We will not be offering pre-bookable appointments for the GPs. We will continue to offer nursing and HCA pre-bookable appointments but these will still go through telephone triage on the day of appointment.
Patients who need to be seen in person will be. Those who can be managed safely by phone, will be.
You may also see some changes over reception and waiting room areas, some areas may be closed off and magazines will be cleared. Chairs may be further apart or you made need to go to different areas for different things.
Please bear with us as we settle into new procedures. Rest assured that any measures put in to place are done to protect our patients and staff and reduce the risk of infection.
As you can imagine this is a challenging time for the NHS, as it is for the public.
Guidance and information changes daily and all of our plans are subject to change so please do keep an eye on the website where will try to keep you updated. Thank you for your support.
NHS 111 service makes it easier for you to access local NHS Healthcare Services.
You can call 111 anytime when you need medical help fast but itís not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.

Changes to service
Temp Closure of Branch
As this pandemic continues to grow we are facing significant challenges particularly with regard to staff absences and isolations therefore we have no option but to temporarily close our East site/Park Branch as we are unable to staff it.
For patients who need to be seen an appointment will be offered at our West Site or alternatively within Park utilising the Access+ service, prescriptions will be sent directly to your preferred pharmacy.
Please do continue to ring your usual number to book telephone triage appointments (GP/Nurse/HCA), for any medical/medication queries or to order prescriptions.
We apologise for these late notice changes and hope to get back to normal service as soon as possible.
Please do keep an eye on our website for further changes.
