Seasonal Flu Vaccinations 2016

You should be vaccinated against seasonal flu if you:

  • suffer from any of the following chronic illnesses:
  • asthma  (vaccination not needed if only BLUE inhaler used)
  • lung disease
  • heart disease
  • diabetes

Patient Participation Group

The Practice set up a Patient Participation Group several years ago to represent patient views on issues. We would now like attract to a few more members to the group.  You can be any age, either gender and from any ethnic background.  Our only requirement is that you are one of our patients.  If you can spare a few hours in the evening,  2-3 times a year and would be interested in joining our PPG, please contact the Practice Manager.

 

Booking appointments and ordering repeat prescriptions on-line

Our new computer system allows patients to book some appointments on-line.   The number of appointments that can be booked this way is being rolled out gradually.   We will periodically review the number and mix of online appointments available compared to number of appointments that can be made by telephone or face to face.  

The new computer system also allows repeat prescriptions to be ordered on-line.   The new repeat prescription request system is different from the old system in that you will be shown a list of medications that you are authorised to request and it is just a question of ticking the box for the ones you need.   Please allow 72 (working) hours before you collect the prescription.

Patients wishing to book appointments on-line or request prescriptions on-line will need to come to the surgery and ask to register for a user name and password for the new system.

The link at the bottom of the page for the old method of requesting a repeat prescription has now been redirected to the new system.  The old method is no longer available. Patients should therefore come to the surgery to obtain a new user name and password without delay.
