Noticeboard

2020 Flu clinics - contact surgery to book an appointment please

Do not attend if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been told to isolate.

Attend on your own unless you need help with your mobility.

Please arrive on time for your appointment - Do not arrive early or late for your appointment time: we have allocated a strict arrival time of patients to ensure that people are queueing for the minimum amount of time and social distancing is maintained.   Please wear a face covering. 

Once you have sanitised, we encourage you not to touch anything in the practice an follow the instructions for queuing. If you are in a wheelchair or have very limited mobility, please make yourself known to the queue marshal

There will be no chairs available to sit while waiting and you will not be able to sit whilst having the vaccination (for infection control). If you think you will struggle with this, please speak to the queue marshal on arrival.

Wear clothing which makes it easy to expose your upper arm. The vaccinations will be given behind a screen in the waiting room to comply with infection control.

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 is 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.

Family Planning Clinic

A full range of family planning services (except condoms) is available and the clinic is held every Wednesday afternoon. Cervical smears and postnatal checks are also carried out at this clinic. These services are also available from all the doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners during their normal surgery.

Morning After Contraception

Despite the fact that we can supply most forms of contraception, there may be occasions when people do not take precautions during sexual intercourse. This can cause worry until the next period. Occasionally, when a period doesnt come you can be faced with the dilemma of whether to request an abortion or continue with an unplanned pregnancy.

The morning after pill can, in fact, be used up to 72 hours (three days) after unprotected sex, although the sooner it is taken the more effective it is. Because of this, in addition to the practice offering the morning after pill, it is also available from local chemists free of charge. Please contact them for further details. There is also an alternative, depending on when your last period was or if you cannot take the pill. If this happens to you please come to the surgery and see the doctor or the nurse on the next working day. We can help.
