Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that patients (or their carers) who have a disability or sensory loss receive information they can access and understand. For example in large print, braille or via email.

As part of the Accessible Information Standard we must:

  • Identify patients who may have an additional communication need.
  • Record the patient's need in our clinical GP system.
  • Flag the patient's record to assure additional communication needs are obvious to practice staff;
  • Share this information with other care givers such as social care;
  • Act to ensure our staff can effectively communicate with patients who may have additional communication needs.

Please inform a member of staff in reception if you have any communication support needs- you can call us on 0207 249 5511 or tell a receptionist in person. You need to help us make sure we get things right for you.

Named Accountable GP for all Patients

    •  Convalescent plasma could be a life-saving treatment for COVID-19

      If you have had COVID-19 you could potentially help other patients fight it by donating your blood plasma.

      NHSBT are currently looking at how the antibodies from blood plasma could support high risk groups such as the elderly and people with cancer who could struggle to develop their own immune response to the virus

      Donations are vital to this ongoing lifesaving research, which gives us a better understanding of how we can best treat patients with COVID-19 and help prevent deaths in the future.

      If you are male and have received hospital care you are around six times more likely to have the high antibody levels which might save lives.

      Making a donation is painless and only takes about 45 minutes and can be undertaken at a nearby donor centre.

      Anyone who has had COVID-19 can offer to donate by calling 0300 123 23 23 or completing the online form at www.nhsbt.nhs.uk
