Flu Vaccinations

We are now booking flu vaccinations for our usual cohort of patients, that is patients over 65 years and those under 65 years in an at risk group. Please see our Seasonal Flu Jabs Information page found under Clinics & Services. If you are eligible please ring Reception on 01903 230656 to make an appointment. We are awaiting further guidance on the vaccination of those aged 50 – 64 years who are not in an at risk group, but expect to book these patients in October for vaccination in November.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS. PLEASE GO TO   https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19

Please see our Coronavirus page.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING OUR SERVICES:

Due to ongoing concerns with regards to Coronavirus (Covid-19) we have put measures in place for the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff.  

The following nursing appointments are not taking place at the moment: travel vaccinations, and spirometry.

Pill checks, asthma reviews, COPD reviews and diabetic reviews have been converted to telephone appointments.

Please do not drop off urine samples unless you have been asked to by a clinician as many infections can be dealt with over the phone.

If you need to order prescriptions please either use the on-line facility to order or drop a paper request into the surgery’s external post box with name, address, date of birth, medication you require and which pharmacy you wish to collect it from. We DO NOT take prescription requests over the phone.

We will not be providing paper prescriptions for collection so you must nominate a pharmacy.

January Newsletter 2020: please do read this helpful Newsletter.  Some of the articles are written by members of our Patient Participation Group and one of our PPG members is on the Editorial Group for this Newsletter. We are going to publish these newsletters quarterly and hopefully they will provide helpful and informative articles that are relevant to patients healthcare. If you are interested in joining our group or would like more information supplied around any healthcare matters please do contact either the Practice Manager; Jane De Jong, or the Deputy Practice Manager; Jo Lowes.
