In February we are migrating to a new clinical system. We will be changing from Microtest Evolution to TPP SystmOne. This will be a mammoth task for the surgery and work has already begun on this. The staff are all dedicated and working hard to ensure that this will run as smoothly as possible and we would like to apologise in advance for any disruption or inconvenience that this may cause to you around this time.
St Neots Strivers smashed their target running the 10k on the 6th October in aid of Pete's Dragons
The results are in! St. Neots Strivers completed the Plymouth in aid of Pete's Dragons, a local Devon charity, providing important support to help aid with devastation following bereavement from suicide, which has been witnessed professionally by most clinicians at St. Neots Surgery, and also personally by some staff at the surgery.
We smashed our group target of 5 hours! Nurse Aitken won the honours of most improved time based on 2018 and there was an exciting race between Dr. Davies and Dr. Mack whereby Dr. Davies' fast start was almost undone by Dr. Mack's fast finish!

RESULTS ARE IN- St Neots Strivers do the 10k- Dr. Tutty, Dr. Dawson, Dr. Davies, Nurse Aitken and Emma Moore smashed their 10k target in aid of Bowel Cancer West!
The results are in! St. Neots Strivers took advantage of favourable running conditions on a lovely day to try and match the above and beyond fundraising efforts of their dedicated supporters. Unfortunately Dr. Mason had to pull out at the last minute for a family emergency so our target was recalibrated to a challenging 5hrs and 7 mins that left no room for error! Dr. Mo Tutty led the way kitted effectively with running gloves and long socks and we smashed the target, all beating our personal targets by more than 2 minutes each!
Dr. “Mo” Tutty 48:04 (sub 52:00 target)
Emma Moore 49:53 (sub 60:00 target)
Dr. Davies 52:52 (sub 60:00 target)
Dr. Dawson 57:30 (sub 60:00 target)
Nurse Aitken 1:09.35 (sub 1:15 target)
Total time: 4hrs 37 mins 6 seconds (target of 5hrs 7 mins absolutely smashed!).
Thank you so much for your support to help St. Strivers to such a successful debut run and raising over £1000 for Bowel Cancer West. I’m sure we will be back for more with perhaps some new members too!
Last minute donations conditional on completion of the 10k and fulfilment of pledges can be received through the online JustGiving site using this link or texting SNST88 £2/£5/£10 to 70070. You can also donate at Reception.

Thank you for your contribution- we have had 270 responses and are busy preparing the report. We will publish as soon as possible.
Routine Prescription Turnaround Time Change
In order to increase reliability of our prescription turnaround time, in line with other surgeries and in keeping with increased patient demand, we have decide to increase our target expected routine prescription processing time from 48 hours to 72 hours. This will enable us to process a larger proportion in time during busy periods. Thank you for your understandin
IMPORTANT- Information for Ocean Health patients wishing to register with us / Conditions of New Patient Registration
The report on BBC News Spotlight could have given you the impression that Ocean Health is closing and that you would be sent information by NHS England as to where to re-register as patients.
We would like to assure you that Ocean Health is not closing and that there is no need to register with another surgery. Extra GPs are now in place and services are starting to improve.
No Plymouth GP surgery is immune from the pressure of increasing list sizes due to recent surgery closures and great difficulty in recruiting new permanent GPs
While we still remain open to new patient registrations in our core practice area, please note that a rapid increase in our patient numbers will affect our ability to provide a safe service and our increasing list size will remain under close review
Due to current pressures we regret that we are no longer accepting new registrations from patients who do not live within our core practice area.
Please note that Barne Barton is outside our core practice area
In addition patients that move out of our practice area (both core and extended) will be asked to register with another surgery
Thank you for your understanding
Changes to Gluten-Free Prescribing Guidelines from 1st July 2017
From 1st July 2017 new CCG recommendations advise GPs to no longer prescribe gluten-free products on NHS prescriptions for over 18s and only staple items (bread/pasta/mix) for under 18s. This is due to reduced cost and increased availability of such products in supermarkets and other suppliers and having to ensure that NHS resources are wisely spent. Please see attached leaflet for further information and contact number for discussing this change further.
