Noticeboard

We are following advice from NHS England that all patients must be triaged first before they can be seen. We are aware this has caused an increase in our phone traffic and at times patients have trouble accessing us. We are aware of this issue and have purchased a new telephone system with increased lines, this will be coming in the next 4-6 weeks, we ask patients to be patient with us during this very busy time.
Please think before you shout or abuse our staff, we are trying our best and do not tolerate abuse of any kind.

FLU - We are fast approaching flu season! We will be vaccinating patients on an appointment only basis, we have not yet received our flu vaccines. Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which are eligible for the flu vaccination, for example, you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Patient Participation Group

Our Patient Participation group plays a key role in the development of your surgery and it meets three times a year. We will be choosing topics, looking at agreed audits, advertising results, minutes of our meetings and discussing patient complaints and suggestions.

We hope to improve communication and promote good health.

I attend all meetings and bring in different members of the team including reception staff, nurses, admin team, doctors and of course, most important of all, patient representatives.

Please let me know if you would like to join us or put a topic on the list, the last two meetings have been fun with good tea and biscuits!

Thank you,

Jackie Mayo

Senior Practice Manager
