Waddington Surgery - Temporary Closure

In order to facilitate as many Covid-19 vaccines for patients in and around our area as possible, we have temporarily converted our Waddington Surgery into a Covid-19 vaccine site. Unfortunately this means that normal facilities of our Waddington site have been suspended for the forseeable future. We are encouraging patients to contact us first on 01522 811411, and attend our Navenby surgery for appointments and collections when possible. Our front post box at Waddington is still being checked on a daily basis, so please feel free to leave prescription requests, completed registration forms and other letters to us in there as normal. We will resume normal service as soon as we can but in the mean time, thank you very much for your patience and understanding. 

FLU VACCINATIONS

We now have our flu vaccinations in stock. At present we are able to offer appointments to all patients over 50 years old, and patients who fit the NHS high risk categories. Please contact reception to see if you are eligible.

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.

Confidentiality

Computers

The Practice is fully computerised and is registered with the Data Protection Act.

Confidentiality

Everyone working within the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential.

The practice complies with Data Protection and Access to Medical Records legislation. Identifiable information about you will be shared with others in the following circumstances:

  • To provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services.
  • To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department. This requires your consent.
  • When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases Anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services e.g. for diabetic care.

If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.

Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.
