Upper Don Network

We are pleased to announce that we have received formal approval for our network Upper Don. This comprises of Valley Medical Centre, Deepcar Medical Centre and Oughtibridge Surgery. Together we work for 21,000 patients with numbers rising due to the new residential building. Our successes as a Neighbourhood can now continue under the new contract as a Network.

We have links with many local organisations, faith groups, People Keeping Well and South Yorkshire Housing Association. We acknowledge that our community has a rich resource in its local voluntary groups and organisations that provide many great services to our local population. Our patients can access shared services across our geographical boundary to improve their health and wellbeing. These include the local community run Leisure Centre, Dementia Café, Community Support Worker, Sexual Health Services, Diabetic Eye screening, Occupational Health, Food bank, Social Café, Addiction Recovery, Valley React, lunch clubs, mother and toddler groups, sports teams and facilities, Drama groups, Young people/children's clubs, dance classes, Stocksbridge Walkers are welcome, Community Carers group, the Community Health Forum and many others. (Apologies if missed).

Locally a new Diabetes Prevention and awareness project has been launched to engage all ages in providing information on healthy living. Our practices are engaged in the Working Win initiative to help people find work and stay in work that may have limiting health conditions. This is run by South Yorkshire Housing Association.

The network already shares a Community Support Worker Amy May, and we will soon be sharing a community pharmacist to support the doctors with Pharmaceutical and Medicine Reviews. The three managers from each surgery work closely together to benefit our patients and each practice has a Patient Participation group where all patients are welcome.

Our long term aim is to bring more services closer to our patients and by working together we will ensure there are equitable access opportunities for our patients. We have appointed a Clinical Director to our Network, Dr Ruth Izard from Oughtibridge Surgery who will represent our practices and patients at City wide meetings.

Results of 2019 IPSOS Mori Poll

This patient survey is carried out independently of the practice and randomly with our patients. We are very pleased with this year's results and would like to share these with you.

You might not realise it, but emotional and mental health issues are quite common and you're not on your own – we're here to support you. Sometimes you just need space to think, and that's cool, we all do. You can do that at Door43.

If you call in to Sheffield Futures, Star House, 43 Division Street, Sheffield, we will do our best to help and support you, or we will point you in the right direction to get help elsewhere.

We can support you in all sorts of situations, so please get in touch and speak to one of our specially trained professionals who are ready to help out and they will not judge you or be shocked by anything you tell them.

Door 43At Door43, lots of different people work together to make sure that we always have someone to hand who can help – including youth workers, counsellors, substance misuse workers, sexual health workers, careers advisors, volunteers, peers supporters and more!

For more information please call us on 0114 201 2800 or drop in to Star House during our opening hours.

Going Abroad?

Before you go, please visit www.smarter-traveller.co.uk for travel health advice to help you stay healthy while you're abroad.

We advise you to arrange this with our Practice Nurse at least 4-6 weeks prior to your travel date. We can often accommodate short notice travel. Please be aware travel vaccines incur a standard NHS Prescription Cost per item.

All you need to do is complete the travel form and hand in to reception. A nurse will then contact you to inform you of which vaccines are advised and book you a travel consultation appointment.
