Probus Memory Café

 

A Member of Cornwall Memory Café Network

Due to the current guidelines from the Government and the situation with regards to Coronavirus Covid-19, the Memory Cafe is postponed until further notice.

PROBUS MEMORY CAFÉ – Volunteers and Committee Members required .

Due to the Pandemic , the Probus Memory café had to stop having its fortnightly meetings in March 2020. However, it may now be possible to start planning for a resumption of these rewarding, get -togethers for individuals and their carers later this year.

For a variety of reasons, new Volunteers and committee members are urgently needed to lead and restart the Café meetings. Anyone wishing to take on a new worthwhile challenge and contribute ideas and enthusiasm and welcome people with memory loss back for some much missed social engagement please do contact us for more information.

There are funds and a good stock of equipment already in place.

For further information, please contact Claire on promemcf@gmail.com

Appointments

To access a GP we have a Telephone Triage system, which means that your initial appointment will be booked in for a telephone call back with the GP, and this allows the clinically trained staff at the Surgery to assess health concerns over the phone and manage them in a safe and timely manner. If the clinician feels they need to see you, they will book this appointment for you and can also offer you a video consultation.

PLEASE NOTE:

You can now book appointments online. To enable you to book these appointments please download the NHS App or visit Probus Surgery and complete an application form providing us with a unique email address, bringing with you some form of identification. We will then set you up to access the system.

These slots are for ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS only. If you feel you will require longer than 15 minutes please phone the surgery on 01726 882745.

Calendar and penWe are able to book some appointments up to one month in advance and some can only be booked on the day. If you know you need a routine review appointment, please book this in good time - or even before leaving the surgery after your previous appointment. This helps ensure we can offer various day and time options.

We aim to offer everyone an appointment at a time that suits them, and constantly re-evaluate our patients' needs. However, Mondays are always very busy, so we would ask you to bear this in mind when you ring.

It is also important to let us know in good time if you no longer require an appointment, so that this slot can be offered to another patient.

The Receptionist team at Probus Surgery can answer in the region of 330 calls a day, the majority of which are patients wishing to make an appointment to see a GP.  Please do not be alarmed if the Receptionist asks the reason for your attendance as this information allows the Receptionist to allocate the most appropriate resource to suit your need.
