Welcome to Felixstowe Road Medical Practice
Welcome to our practice website. We aim to provide all of our patients with a comprehensive range of healthcare services covering one-off problems to longer term illnesses. Feel free to explore the site and find out how you and your family can benefit from our personal and professional approach to healthcare provision.
The surgery is open from 0800 to 1830 Monday to Friday for booking appointments, visit requests, collecting prescriptions and telephone enquires.
Seasonal Flu Vaccinations 2016
You should be vaccinated against seasonal flu if you:
- are over 65
- are pregnant or
- suffer from any of the following chronic illnesses:
- asthma (vaccination not needed if only BLUE inhaler used)
- lung disease
- heart disease
- kidney disease
- liver disease
- neurological disease
- low immune system
Please book your 2016 flu appointment as soon as possible.
We are also participating in a national program to vaccinate all children against influenza who are aged 2, 3, or 4. Invitations are sent to eligible children and separate clinics will be set up as this childhood vaccine is being administered as a nasal spray
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.
