Thursday 18th October 2018 come and meet the Occupational Therapists…

So what do Occupational Therapist do?

Occupational Therapists help people to live life their way. When physical or mental illness, or the effects of ageing stop you doing some activities – whether it’s getting washed or going back to work, or doing the fun things such as socialising – this affects your health and wellbeing. We can work with you to find different ways of carrying out activities to help you live life your way and we will be bringing some of our small equipment to your surgery in the morning to show you how. Drop in and say hello and find out about our service.

Minor Surgery Clinic

Dr Verghese, assisted by a practice nurse and our HCA, carries out minor surgery in a monthly clinic, usually on a Tuesday morning. Late or non-attendance at these 30-minute slots is unacceptable.

As with any operating theatre, sterile equipment is obtained specifically for the procedures and staff are scrubbed up, dressed in masks and gowns, resulting in a wasted cost to the NHS in the event of non-attendance.

Since we also normally have a waiting list, non-attendance can cause longer delays for other patients. Non-attenders will either be removed from the waiting list or placed at the end of it.
