Secretarial Vacancy: We have a vacancy for a medical secretary. Please check out our vacancy page for further information.
CHECK YOURSELF IN: From Monday 9th January 2017 the surgery will have a self-checkin system in operation in the lobby of the surgery. Please familiarise yourself with this at your next visit and ensure that you check in for your appointment on arrival. We have installed this because we are finding that there are often queues at the Reception desk and we hope that this will then ease the problem of waiting to check in for the patient and will ease the pressure at the desk for the Receptionists. It will also allow the Receptionists more free time for dealing with other patient queries.
There are still some flu vaccinations left. Please contact the surgery to book your appointment.
Saturday Flu Clinics will commence from Saturday 24th September 2016. There will be two further clinics planned for Saturday 8th October and Saturday 15th October. There will be some clinics during the week and dates/times can be checked with the Reception Team.
If you are 65 and over you automatically qualify for a flu vaccination. Patients with chronic diseases and patients who are pregnant also qualify for flu vaccination. For information regarding all patients who are entitled to receive a flu vaccine please either contact Reception on 01277 658117 or click on the following link http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/vaccinations/Pages/who-should-have-flu-vaccine.aspx
Some children will also qualify for the flu vaccination at the surgery. We will write to those families who have children in the relevant age group mid September (as we do not receive the vaccines until towards the end of September). If you join the surgery after this time, please check if your child is eligible with one of the Receptionists.
