FLU VACCINATIONS

We now have our flu vaccinations in stock. At present we are able to offer appointments to all patients over 65 years old, and patients who fit the NHS high risk categories. Please contact reception to see if you are eligible.

URGENT NOTIFICATION

UNFORTUNATELY THERE IS A NATIONAL PROBLEM WITH THE CHEMICALS USED BY LABORATORIES WHEN TESTING BLOOD SAMPLES.  

SO, WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT, WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED TO PAUSE ROUTINE TESTING OF BLOOD SAMPLES.  WE DO NOT KNOW WHEN A NORMAL SERVICE WILL RESUME.

REGRETTABLY WE WILL HAVE TO CONTACT MANY PATIENTS TO CANCEL THEIR BLOOD TEST APPOINTMENTS.  WE RECOGNISE THIS WILL CAUSE FRUSTRATION AND ANXIETY AND APOLOGISE FOR THIS BUT THIS SITUATION IS COMPLETELY OUTSIDE THE PRACTICE'S CONTROL.

THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IS LOOKING INTO THIS AND WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED ONCE WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION.

PATIENTS WHO REQUIRE URGENT BLOOD TESTS WILL BE PRIORITISED BY THE CLINICAL TEAM.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AT THIS TIME.

Zero Tolerance

We operate a Zero Tolerance Policy with regard to abuse or violence towards our staff. We reserve the right to remove abusive or violent patients from the Practice List.

Carers

Are you a Carer?
Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill?

We are interested in identifying Carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support. We know that Carers are often "hidden", looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a Carer.

Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community which is often a 24 hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the Carer.

As a Carer, you are entitled to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services. It is a chance to talk to someone about possible help that is available to you.

If you are a Carer, please ask at reception for a 'Carers Registration and Consent Form', or use the link below.
