Welcome to The Adam Practice Website

 

As one of the largest GP Practices on the South Coast, The Adam Practice strives to provide high quality, readily accessible medical and preventative health care within a well organised, efficient, up-to-date, friendly and caring environment. This is achieved by making the best possible use of its resources and by taking a proactive role with new health care strategies.

We have designed this website to help you get the most out of our surgeries by informing you of the services we offer and enabling you to access all the relevant healthcare information and advice you may need.

Altogether Better

Altogether Better helps health services and local people find new ways of working together – making a difference to people’s lives, releasing new talents and resources, and improving services through a model of collaborative practice.

We are looking for willing local people to gift their time as health champions, working alongside the practice and our health professionals to reshape services, opening up new possibilities, working together to provide a range of innovative activities and support. In other words, a new way of seeing and doing things.

Community Information

We have created a page on this website to provide our patients, and their families, with information of groups and activities that are happening in your local community.

 

There is strong evidence that people who become involved in community life, keeping active and improving social connections, is fantastic for both health and wellbeing.

 

“Being part of a community promotes good health and makes us feel we belong. People who feel lonely and isolated often face health problems like stress, pain or illness. Belonging is part of a healthy community –yours, ours, everybody’s.”

S E Frost: A report from March 2012 [www.wcmt.org.uk]

Over the Counter Medicines

We need YOU to help the NHS to use resources sensibly!

Prescribing over the counter (OTC) medicines is changing. Our GPs, Nurse Practitioners and Clinical Pharmacist at The Adam Practice will not generally give you a prescription for medicines that can be bought over the counter for minor health concerns.

CLINICAL PHARMACISTS

A message from The Adam Practice Doctors

“The practice issues nearly half a million prescription items every year, so naturally we get lots of requests for consultations about clinical aspects of medication.

The Adam Practice is very fortunate to have a Clinical Pharmacist in our team who is highly trained as medicine experts. We have therefore created a telephone and face-to-face appointment service for them to deal with most questions regarding your medication, instead of seeing a GP.

Examples of when you would see a Clinical Pharmacist include:

  1. Feeling unwell since starting new tablets
  2. Advice on medication changes made by a specialist
  3. Repeat medication reviews

To name but a few.

Please see our Information Leaflet for further details.

We have instructed our staff to utilise these appointments, so if you are booked into see a pharmacist for your medication query, please respect our clinical decision.

Thank you very much for your co-operation.”

  

Patient testimonials...

“I received excellent service from the clinical pharmacist, having arranged a telephone consultation. All my medication was painstakingly reviewed and I cannot rate this service more highly. This is a brilliant addition to the practice and will presumably allow the GPs more time to deal with patients.” - source: NHS Choices

  "Just been helped by the Adam practice pharmacist, I understand this is a recent addition to the practice and seems to work well, Its worth patients reading about what it provides using the online description. Certainly from a patients point of view I believe it will be very useful once its realised what its about." - source: NHS Choices
