FLU VACCINATIONS

If you are eligible for a free flu vaccination, you will be sent an invitation from the surgery to attend one of our flu clinics. We do not currently have the flu vaccinations in stock and therefore we cannot administer any early. Please be patient and wait for your invitation to arrive as this is a very busy time of year for us.

If you think you are eligible for a free flu vaccination but haven't received your invitation by the middle of October please contact the surgery to enquire.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Electronic Prescription Service -  Phase 4

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from Tuesday 1st September 2020.

Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.

You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.

Read more about EPS on the NHS website.


Please follow our new Facebook page for updates.

FACE-COVERINGS COMPULSORY WHEN ATTENDING SURGERY

In light of recent government guidance, all patients will be required to wear their own face-covering when coming into the surgery. Thank you for your continued support.

Instructions how to make your own face covering can be found here: https://gptaskforce.com/face-coverings-and-face-masks/fbclid=IwAR3CnyiePXE6Bvd9oCrBVUf4e7B1p08U0qKqjzs7R69QNWD-U2Ml48qGWnk


If you have been advised by a member of the team that you need to attend surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic, please note the following to keep you safe:

▪️Please try to arrive at your allotted time - if you are more than 5 minutes early, please wait in your car to avoid lingering in the waiting room.
▪️Please wear a face covering whilst inside our buildings - this should cover your mouth and nose and must be worn until you leave the building. This does not apply to infants under 3 but does apply to their accompanying parent/guardian. We encourage you to buy your own face covering as we only have a limited supply and are unable to keep handing these out.
▪️You will be screened for COVID symptoms and directed to sanitise your hands on arrival.
▪️Please maintain social distancing.
▪️The clinician will be wearing PPE – face mask, visor, gloves and apron during your consultation.
▪️The room and any equipment used will be thoroughly wiped between patients.
▪️We prefer to see you alone without other family members unless this is necessary for communication purposes.

If you are unwell with symptoms of temperature, cough or change in smell and/or taste or any household member is unwell and you have been told to self-isolate – please do not attend your appointment, we will happily rearrange.

Thank you for your continued co-operation and support.


We understand that it is particularly difficult for the deaf community to navigate services during the pandemic, we are trying our best to make our service accessible.  Please let us know if you have particular needs with regards to how we communicate with you.
