Noticeboard

Staff Training
The surgery will be closed for staff training from 1pm Wednesday 13th December.  We will reopen as usual at 8am on Thursday 14th December.

Flu Season 

Flu vaccinations are available from 23rd September 2017.  

You are eligible for a flu vaccination if you are: 
-Over 65 years of age
-Any age with a chronic disease 
-Are pregnant
-Have a weakened immune system 
-All children aged 2- 3 years old
-Any child aged 2 - 17 years old who is at risk 

Please contact the surgery to book an appointment. 

Telephone Triage

We now offer telephone triage.  Triage just means deciding what, if any, treatment you need and which clinician you need to be seen by to get this treatment.  Offering telephone triage means that you will be able to speak to a clinician on the same day and either your problem dealt with over the phone, if appropriate, or an appointment offered if the clinician feels you need to be seen.  We hope this will work well and help improve access to appointments. 

Prescriptions
As of 4th January 2016 you will only be able to order your prescription over the phone between 2pm - 5pm.  You can however order online or by calling into the surgery at any time.  Please allow 2 working days before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays.
