GLP1 Therapy for Diabetes Trulicity & Ozempic
Dear Patients,
We need to make you aware of a national drug shortage for the use of GLP1 injection therapy for weight management within diabetes.
The GLP1 drugs are a weekly injection that have been used by the NHS for diabetic weight management for years. However, there has been a shortage of these drugs and patients are now having problems obtaining their prescriptions for these medications.
Alternative drugs have now been sanctioned to use. However, each patient will need to have a consultation as the new drugs have different dosing instructions and how they are administered.  We are gradually changing patients over to the new drugs, but as you can appreciate this is a huge undertaking, and we are doing our best to make these changes as quickly as possible, so please bear with us.

Thank you for your patience and co-operation.

ADHD and Shared Care Arrangements 

We have recently been receiving lots of letters from private psychiatrists to have a shared care arrangements for ADHD management. Whilst we support and recognise that the patients need treatment for their Adult ADHD management, regrettably this service is not funded and not contracted by the NHS. The management of ADHD in the paediatric age group is done by the community paediatric team who see the patients regularly for follow ups, this service is contracted for by the NHS through the community service provision. 

The practice does not have the capacity and the work force to take on shared cared arrangements for Adult ADHD treatment. We therefore advise that patients should make sure that they are attending their follow up care with any private service providers for their ADHD that they have selected to visit. 

Access to Medical Records

We have recently been having requests for amendments of records by patients who access to their records. 

A clinical record should be an accurate reflection of a consultation. There is no reason it should be amended just because someone does not like the contents or has had a change of circumstances.  

The access to clinical records should not create a flood gate of requests for record amendments as this is creating excessive work for our staff and GP’s.  

Furthermore, retrospective amendments can cause a misleading story of events which might not be in the best interest of further care. 

Amendments must only be made to inaccurate record entries. 

Thank you for your co-operation.
