Achieving 77% of your hypertensive patients treated to target.

I am writing to congratulate your GP Practice for your performance against the CVD Prevent Indicator “Percentage of patients aged 18 and over, with GP recorded hypertension, in whom the last blood pressure reading (measured in the preceding 12 months) is below the age appropriate treatment threshold.”

As you will be aware the NHS 2023/24 priorities and operational planning guidance identified hypertension as a key priority, setting the objective: “Increase the percentage of patients with hypertension treated to NICE guidance to 77% by March 2024.” 

The CVDPREVENT data has just been published including data up to the end of March 2023.

We are delighted to say that your GP Practice are treating 77.30% your patients to the age appropriate thresholds.

A key milestone in our journey to achieving the operational planning guidance ambition for patients with hypertension.

You are one of only a few General Practices in the North East and Yorkshire Region achieving this target and as such I wanted to take the time to congratulate your Practice and the work of your staff, that has contributed to progressing this ambition for your population.

Prevention is at the heart of the NHS Long Term Plan and the Plan includes a major ambition to prevent 150,000 strokes and heart attacks over the next ten years by improving the treatment of the high-risk conditions including: hypertension, Hypercholesterolaemia and atrial fibrillation.

By ensuring that so many of your patients are treated to target for their hypertension makes a fantastic contribution to the NHS being able to realise this ambition and prevent heart attacks and strokes for your patients.

Please keep up this excellent work.

We will continue to monitor this work and hope that other PCN’s can quickly match your achievement.

Yours sincerely

Dr Yvette Oade Regional Medical Director North East & Yorkshire

Dr Tim Butler GP, Assistant Medical Director SRO Diabetes and CVD Prevention North East and Yorkshire

Presentation of Patient Award

Clee Medical Centre has had the recent pleasure of being able to present to our patient Mrs DAWN TAYLOR the Nabarro Medal.  

This is in recognition of living with and managing Diabetes for over 50 years.  

When asked the secrets to her success in managing her condition Dawn said it was a careful process, that changes every day, learnt through trial and error on some occasion, relating to what she has eaten.  However Dawn has never let her condition stop her from doing what she wishes. 

Dawn said she felt supported in her care by the surgery and would like to support the practice in helping other patients manage their condition.

Thrive - social prescribing:

Social Prescribing

Self Care Commissioning Statement 

Prescribing of medicines available to purchase over the counter for self-care

Clinical Commissioning Groups within NHS Humber, Coast and Vale Integrated Care System (ICS) do not routinely support the prescribing of medicines and treatments for self-limiting and minor health conditions where:

  • Self-care is the most appropriate route
  • Medicines and treatments are available to buy over the counter

All prescribers within, Humber, Coast and Vale including non-medical prescribers, GPs, extended hours, urgent care and A&E departments, should offer education and advice to support self-care when appropriate and not routinely prescribe readily available over the counter (OTC) medicines. This guidance does not remove the clinical discretion of the prescriber in accordance with their professional duties.
Community pharmacists should support this approach and not routinely advise patients to request their GP to prescribe OTC medicines available for self-limiting conditions and minor health conditions where these are available to purchase.

Some of these groups are more at risk of developing potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection).

Others are more at risk of passing flu on to vulnerable people should they catch the virus.

SEPSIS is a rare but serious complication of an infection.

Without quick treatment, sepsis can lead to multiple organ failure and death.

What is the Herbert Protocol?

The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme which encourages carers and families to record vital information on a form which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.

The protocol was introduced by West Yorkshire Police and named after George Herbert, a war veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia.

So far 55 people with dementia have gone missing in Lincolnshire since January 2017, out of a total of 411. This is 13%.
