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.

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.

Patient Rights & Responsibilities

consultation.jpgOnce registered with the practice you may express a preference to be seen by a certain doctor. This includes being seen by different doctors for different conditions. We will always try our best to help, but our ability to meet preferences is dependent upon the availability of doctors at any given time.

You are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where you feel one is required.

If you are a registered patient who is aged between 16 and 74 (inclusive), and have not attended a clinic or consultation with the practice within the last three years, you have a right to a consultation in which the health professional will conduct whatever examinations appear to be appropriate.

Similarly, if you are a registered patient who is over 75 years of age, and have not attended either a clinic or a consultation for one year, you have a right to a consultation in which the health professional will conduct whatever examinations appear to be appropriate, and will conduct the consultation at your home if it appears necessary for medical reasons.

Patients are expected to keep their appointments. If for any reason you can’t keep an appointment, please let the medical centre know as soon as possible so that the time can be given to someone else.

The medical centre is a no smoking area, and no alcohol is allowed on the premises. The practice reserves the right to choose not to see patients that arrive at the surgery under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The practice will require any patient who is violent and/or abusive to leave the premises. In serious cases registration with the practice may be cancelled.
