Flu Update: We have 160 vaccines left in stock, having already vaccinated 1327 of our patients. If you are eligible please contact the medical centre to make an appointment to get yours.

Please could I ask that all patients who are due a flu vaccine this year, support their GP Practice. Our clinicians have updates each year; know how to deal with you in an anaphylactic emergency; we have infection control audits each year to ensure our premises are fit for purpose. If you choose to go elsewhere for your flu vaccine, then GPs could be left with fridges full of vaccines that they have already ordered and paid for and that is a big waste of money, not only for the GPs but for the NHS as a whole.

Practice Staff Training Date - Practice Closed on Tuesday 5.11.19 from 1.00pm until 6.30pm.  If you have an appointment booked please press the intercom on your arrival.  If you require medical assistance urgently during this time please ring the normal surgery number 0114 2488187 and you will be put through to the out of hours service, or alternatively call 111.

We are looking at ways to deliver more efficient help to patients with the most need. These are people with ongoing medical problems that are at risk of hospital admission.

 

Our aim is to work with other health care agencies to try and avoid hospital admission. This could be carers, Community Nurses, Pharmacists, Paramedics or Accident and Emergency staff. The idea is that with more efficient communication and working more closely, that we can treat people at home.

 

The way we can gather this information is from patient records. A 'risk stratification' tool is used which gives points for certain medical problems, age, previous hospital admissions, etc and gives a total per patient. We are then able to look at people with the higher numbers and target our work with them. The information from this tool is not shared with anyone else. It is simply a way of finding out who needs more care.

 

If you choose to opt out we will not be able to identify you as someone who may need help. For further information please contact the surgery.
