Mayor pops in for tea service
A DOCTORS’ surgery held a tea party to explain to patients about all the services they offer.
Dr Sameer Naseef and Partners at Orient House Medical Centre in Wigan Road hosted the event last week.
The event was organised to give the community a better understanding of what the surgery provided and what other services are available.
Agencies such as Smoking Cessation service, Bolton CVS and Get Active Bolton promoted their services on the day.
Dr Naseef, principal GP said: “It’s great to see our patients are happy and enjoying themselves while learning about other health services on offer at the surgery.
“The idea of a tea party came from the surgery’s patient participation group after a meeting discussing how the surgery can tell people what other services were on offer.
It was a great success.”
Deane Pharmacy was also present to give advice and guidance on the Think Pharmacy First scheme.
The aim of the scheme is to allow appropriate patients to be referred or to their local community pharmacy.
The community pharmacist will be able to treat a number of specified minor conditions and supply medicines.
No payment needs to be made if the patient is exempt from prescription charges.
There were also lots of activities on offer for children and families such as a children’s face painter and balloon modeller.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Bolton Cllr Colin Shaw and his wife Dee also joined the tea party.
