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.

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.

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.

Other Sources of Help or Advice

Health care and advice can be obtained from a number of other places in addition to the medical centre:

 

NHS 111

Call 111 when your need is less urgent than 999. Calls are free from both landlines and mobile phones.

NHS Walk-in Centre

The NHS Walk-in Centre is located at the Sheffield City GP Health Centre on Broad Lane, Sheffield, S1 3BP and is open every day from 08:00 to 22:00. No appointment is needed, and patients can be seen and advised by a nurse for minor illnesses, confidential advice, emergency contraception, etc. Telephone Sheffield (0114) 241 2700

 

Minor Injuries Unit

This unit is located at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, and offers advice and treatment for minor injuries such as small cuts, grazes, sprains, etc.

 

Accident and Emergency Department

Located at the Northern General Hospital, this unit deals with more serious injuries and illnesses. If a fracture is suspected, or a deep cut which may need suturing, the A&E department offers the best way to assess and treat the injury. 

 

Community Pharmacist Advice

Pharmacists are qualified to give advice on common complaints, and can answer questions about medicines, and staying healthy. If you visit your local community pharmacy (chemist), they can advise you whether or not your symptoms suggest that a visit to see us at the surgery is necessary. There is a local project for people who have a current exemption from prescription charges and who are suffering from minor ailments – ask the receptionist for a leaflet explaining the scheme where you can obtain some medicines free of charge direct from the chemist. 

 

And finally, you can often Look After Yourself!

Many minor illnesses, such as colds, headaches and sore throats, can be easily treated at home using medicines available over the counter from a local pharmacy. If in doubt, ask the pharmacist, or ask to speak to the practice nurse or doctor, who will be able to advise you.

 

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
