RC has spoken to Clinical team and GP lead has been appointed. A member of the nursing team is also to be invited.

15:05 3.7 Medication review message.

DH had been for an appointment with DR Allen and had noticed the message on the right hand side of the prescription stating he was due for a medication review, despite just having had one.

Upon investigation, this message was not linked to a diary entry as thought by RC.

Message needs to be removed.

15:15 3.8 Advertising – should we?

DH and CP raised the idea of advertising services within the surgery. RC disagreed as he was not keen on showing any aspect other than the NHS. It was pointed out by DH that other practices in Telford advertise local services in their reception areas.

RC to ask partners at their weekly non-clinical meeting.
