Flu Vaccine - its not too late!

Flu vaccination - if you have not yet received the flu vaccination and are in one of the eligible groups please contact the Practice to book. There are mop up clinics still running and patients are advised to be vaccinated as early as possible in the season.  We expect our stocks of vaccines to last until the end of January so please contact reception to book before then.

Think you may have a urinary tract infection? If you are female and between the ages of 18 and 65 then you can go to your Pharmacy for treatment without an appointment. There is no need to take a sample and they can prescribe a course of antibiotics just like the GP.  Patients contacting the surgery may be directed to Pharmacy rather than treated here.  Please note this is not suitable for those who are allergic to Trimethoprim  or have recurrent symptoms - Pharmacy First!

HOW TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

docbabyWhen you contact the Health Centre for make an appointment, the receptionist will ask for your name and offer you the first available appointment with a GP.       If you feel that you need to see a doctor urgently, please explain the reason why.  The  receptionist may be able to offer you an urgent appointment or she may ask the nurse or the doctor to ring you (see Urgent Appointments below) to assess your clinical need, offer advice and reassurance and make an appropriate appointment for you to see one of the healthcare team.  Providing us with this information for both routine and urgent appointments enables us to ensure you see or speak to the best person to meet your needs.  Please note routine appointments open every Friday for 3 weeks hence.

A routine appointment with a Doctor or Nurse is 10 minutes.  For this reason we would ask that you limit your consultation with the doctor or nurse to one health problem per consultation.

URGENT APPOINTMENTS

If you consider your medical problem is urgent and cannot wait for the next free appointment time, then your request will be dealt with the same day. If the Receptionist cannot offer you an urgent appointment, the Practice Nurse or one of the Doctors will contact you to help decide on the most appropriate and timely clinical response for your health needs.
