Flu clinics update (08.09.21)

You will probably have seen information in the media saying that there will be a delay to this year's flu clinics across the country. Like other Practices, we received an email on Friday 3rd September from the company who provide our flu vaccines stating that due to ‘unforeseen road freight challenges’ there could be a one-to-two-week delay to when our flu vaccines are delivered. Given that we do not yet know when our delivery will arrive and there is still a chance, we may receive it in time for the first clinic on Saturday 2nd October 9am to 3pm .

We have decided not to re-schedule just yet as we want you have access to your flu vaccine as soon as possible, however, we will not invite you until we have heard our confirmed delivery date from the supplier. 

We know this is disappointing news and we still have our fingers crossed that the delivery will get to us on time. We will keep updating the news section on our website so please make sure you check here regularly and if you have not given us your mobile phone number or consented to us contacting you by text please do so – it helps us get information to you as quickly as possible. Please do not contact us to ask if the clinics have been rescheduled – we will send texts and letters once we know. Thank you.

From 26 July 2021  there will be routine (non-urgent) pre-bookable telephone appointments available to book online or via reception each afternoon.  

--

From 19th July, nothing will change at the surgery.  Patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser whilst in the surgery.  Staff will continue to wear PPE.   Thank you for your co-operation.

--

Please if possible order your prescriptions online or call the surgery between 10.30am and 1pm only.

If you needing a non urgent call back from a clinician then please only call between 8.30am and 10.30am Monday - Friday or 1pm - 3pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday.

Coronavirus notice:

Please see our Special Privacy Notice and COVID-19 Privacy Notice with regards to your data processing during these unprecedented times.  

Due to advice given by the BMA regarding the recent Coronavirus outbreak, we have temporarily had to stop our Drop-in facility, our early morning and late appointment 'extended hours' and also all future bookable online appointments.  This is for the health and safety of EVERYONE.  We apologise for this inconvenience and hope that normal service will resume in the near future.

Watch out in both surgeries for our campaign to get patients registered for online services.

Clinics & Services

Chronic Diseases

We are keen to support patients with longer term diseases or conditions, such as:district_nurse.jpg

  • Heart Disease
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • High Blood Pressure (hypertension)
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Asthma
  • Lung Disease (COPD)
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Depression
  • Cancer
  • Dementia
  • Mental Health

With most of these conditions, you will be offered a review with a nurse (and, where appropriate, a doctor) at least once a year. This review aims to ensure you are receiving the most appropriate treatment for you and gives you the chance to discuss any issues with the nurse or doctor.

The review is normally offered within a few weeks of your birthday; please feel free to contact a practice nurse if you think you are due for a review and haven’t heard from us.

Family Planning & Contraception

The practice offers a full range of advice and provision of contraceptives, including longer acting reversible contraceptives, such as implants (‘Nexplanon’), IUCDs (intra-uterine contraceptive devices), Mirena coils and Depo Provera injections. 

For more information about the coil click here to view a short video.

Please make an appointment to discuss with the family planning practice nurse or a doctor.
