Patient Online Access Request

 

 * 

Named accountable GP

From 1st April all practices are required under the 2015-16 General Medical Services Contract to allocate a named accountable GP to all practice patients, including children.

The named accountable GP will take the lead responsibility for the co-ordination of services required.

Any member of the practice team will be able to confirm the name of your accountable GP. This does not prevent you from seeing any doctor or nurse of your choice!

If a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they are assigned to, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.

*

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

 

Can all patients please be aware that ONE booked appointment is only ten minutes long.

 

This means that only ONE patient will be seen, and only ONE problem dealt with.

 

This will help everybody to be seen as close to their allotted appointment time as possible.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.

This year all 2,3,4 year old are to be offered the nasal spray which helps protect against flu. The nasal spray is painless and easy to have. Protecting your child can stop flu spreading to other children and the family, especially babies and grandparents, who may be at higher risk from flu.

Our flu clinics start 22nd September, please call to book your appointment
