Are you of Bengali origin? This webpage has been made to help you get the best from the practice and the local services.
You may ask why? 65% of all our Bengali patients now have access to their records – that’s almost 1000 people. Many of the patients who have signed up for online services have done this on behalf of family members who may not understand English and on whom they rely upon. This webpage is to try to help you get the most from the practice.
Why have we built this webpage?
To inform you about what help is available for you and your loved ones to use for your health and wellbeing
To help you get the best from the practice and the wider NHS
To tell you how others are benefiting from the services now available
To bring together in one place a variety of Bengali / Sylheti resources for you to use
Please tell us about any other resources you may be aware of so that we can add to this list.
What can you do to get the best from the practice?
Sign up for access to your records and invite others to do the same.
To sign up, you have to complete an online questionnaire and also get the pin numbers to register by speaking to your doctor, nurse, health care assistant or the receptionist
Please speak to the reception staff if you would like to know more or send an email to [email protected]
If you know your loved one (family member) cannot speak / read English then it is even more important you ask them if you can help. Please speak to your doctor or nurse who can advise you on how to help. If you are still unsure what to do then ask to speak to Dr Hannan so that he may talk to you and your family member. We are keen to help you as best as we can.
