Prescription Security Protocol
• All blank prescriptions are removed from the prescription printers, located in the office, by Reception staff at the end of each working day and placed in the Practice safe. They are replaced in the printer by the same person at the start of the next working day;
• The pads for hand-written prescriptions are also locked away in the Practice safe, located in back office;
• Each GP has their own prescription pad for hand-written prescriptions and each prescription is numbered. Alex Hennessy issues the pads to the doctors each morning and the doctor records, on a designated card, how many prescription sheets are on the pad when they receive it. Each doctor must then record how many they have issued during the day, then verify the number left on the pad at the end of the day when they hand it back to the issuer. (This procedure is also the same for locum doctors and is supervised by Alex Hennessy
;
Can the above be actioned?

Professional Qualifications & Registration Policy for New & Existing Staff

The Practice will make it clear to all relevant prospective employees that:
‘appointment to any position is conditional on a satisfactory registration, licence and qualification checks, and that any information disclosed on the application form will be checked’.

Any offer of employment made by the Practice to a prospective employee, whether conditional or absolute, will incorporate a clear statement to the effect that:
‘any offer of appointment may be withdrawn if they knowingly withhold information, or provide false or misleading information, and that employment may be terminated should any subsequent information come to light once they have been appointed’.

In addition, contracts of relevant employees will contain the clause that:
‘should an employee cease to become qualified or become “de-registered” at any time during their employment, that the employment will be deemed to have terminated’.
The Practice will make the following checks on relevant candidates prior to appointment:
• That the applicant is registered to carry out the proposed role
• Whether the registration is subject to any current restrictions that might affect the duties proposed
• If the applicant has investigations against them about their fitness to practise that the regulatory body has a duty to disclose.
• By going onto the GMC’s online register (the List of Medical Practitioners) at
http://www.gmc-uk.org/ and entering the individual’s GMC reference number. This will state either that they are registered ‘with a licence to practise’ or that they are ‘registered without a licence to practice’;
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)

The Practice will contact the NMC to provide the following registration status information on registered nurses:
• Removed
• Restored
• Conditions of practice
• Cautioned
• Suspended
• Lapsed
• Effective.
The Practice will contact the NMC to confirm registration status in one of the following ways:
• Online at http://www.nmc-uk.org/

Have we got proof from GMC re Rachel and NMC re Sian and Jayne?

Protocol for Booking an Interpreter

• When you are with the patient, please telephone the number on the card ***Insert Number*** and the operator will ask you for the following information:
• Access Code ***Insert Number***;
• Name of your Organisation: Silverdale Medical Centre
• User Name ***Insert User Name***
• The language you require.


We need the information for 'Language line'. I think the CCG can supply details.

Protocol to Identify Patients with Learning Disabilities

A learning disability is NOT
• Dyslexia (learning difficulty in educational legislation);
• People who have a learning difficulty (educational term);
• Presence of physical disabilities only;
• Stroke victims;
• Presence of mental health problem only;
• ADHD;
• Cerebral palsy;

Patients with the following diagnosis will be considered as suitable to be invited to join the register;
• Asperger’s Syndrome
• Autism
• Downs Syndrome
• Educational difficulties
• Turners Syndrome
• Congenital abnormalities

To clarify who should be coded

Record Keeping Policy and Protocol

To facilitate this requirement, the Practice will conduct an annual record audit, which will take place around December each calendar year.

As the worst offender I think this should be done - see policy

Referral Desk Aid & Audit Data Collection Template

To provide evidence and demonstrate that the Practice is compliant with CQC Outcome 6B, it is recommended that the Practice undertakes an audit of referral documentation on a regular basis (e.g. Monthly, Quarterly, Six-Monthly).
