NEW SERVICE: COMMUNITY LINK WORKERS

                                            A Community Link Worker is a professional who will help                                                                                     
                                            support your health and wellbeing through talking to you to             
                                            identify worries and concerns. They are not a counsellor but 
                                            will listen to you and help you access support and services 
                                            which can make a difference to your life. 

                                            This is called social prescribing.
Welcome to Canisbay and Castletown Group Practice!
HELP US TO HELP YOU

Please request repeat prescriptions appropriately, requesting only the items you need, attend for appointments in good time or cancel if no longer required, request home visits before 10.00 am if possible and only if you are too ill to attend the surgery.

It is our aim to provide you with the highest standard of healthcare. We believe that this can only be achieved by working together in partnership with our patients.

Dear Patients


Sometimes doctors have to take the advice they would be giving out to patients, and I have found myself in this position recently, realising I need to be looking after my mental and physical health. I have therefore brought my retirement forward just a few months and do not expect to be returning to work before then.  I am sorry that this means I will not be able to follow up patients whom I have asked to come to see me for follow up and I would ask those patients to make a telephone appointment with one of my GP colleagues or the Practice Nurse. If I have asked you to get in touch after a period of time to let me know how you are getting on there will have been a reason for that, so please do make that contact. 


It has been a huge privilege to live and work in this community for 23 years - I feel fortunate to have worked with such lovely patients who have been so supportive to the Practice.  I'd like to wish all of you and your families all the best for the future. 


Best Wishes 

Dr Wilma Macleod
