Oakley Health Group has not been affected by the ransomware "cyberattack" that affected so many worldwide, including the NHS. All our services, including routine and urgent care appointments, telephones, faxes, and emails, continue as normal. The same applies to Frimley Park Hospital.
Our patient database does not reside on a local server, on either site, and our GP software system supplier, EMIS, have reassured surgeries that no GP records were in any way compromised.
Our PCs have all been migrated beyond Windows XP, and we have a well-managed anti-virus and Windows update programme. We have good information governance and information security policies.
We remain vigilant as ever to the increasing threats to the very sensitive information that we hold.
Improved access to same-day health care
Building work at Yateley Medical Centre is now complete and our new Urgent Care Centre is now open for all of our patients. If you have an urgent medical problem, which cannot wait until the next routine appointment, then you will be offered an appointment to be seen the same day by a member of the urgent care team which includes GPs, nurse practitioners, orthopaedic practitioners, paramedic practitioners and other relevant local health care providers. Please call our Help Hub on 01252 872333 to book - these appointments are not available for walk-in because they are designed to get patients to see the right person for their needs.
In order to maintain the improved service, there needs to be a reduction in the number of patients from Oakley Health Group attending A&E for things which could have been dealt with at the Centre. GP practices are informed of all A&E attendances and this will help the surgery to direct information and advice to patients who could have more appropriately and conveniently used this local service.
Other New Services
Claire Bourgoin and Symon Jenner are Orthopaedic Practitioners from Frimley Park Hospital, who now hold clinics locally for patients over the age of 12 with muscular-skeletal problems. Patients can book appointments by calling the Help Hub on 01252 872333.
Frank O'Connell now works with the GP's and Community Nurses, providing additional medical help and advice to patients who are too frail or unwell to come into one of our surgery sites.
Appointments arenow available locally with nurses who specialise in Parkinson's Disease, Heart Failure and Palliative Care. Previously patients had to travel to Frimley, Fleet, Aldershot or Farnham.
