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.

PRIVATE SERVICES

Some services are not available on the NHS eg private sick notes, endorsements of private insurance claims, private medical examinations etc. For these services, there is a charge. To avoid embarrassment, please enquire about fees for these services before requesting that they be carried out.MEDICAL CERTIFICATES

Private letters of referral to consultants are, of course, free of charge.

PRIVATE INSURANCE MEDICAL FORMS

These cannot usually be completed in surgery time, but can be left and collected, as arranged with the doctor or receptionist.

PRIVATE MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS

Please request a special appointment for medicals, eg elderly driver, taxi driver, HGV, PSV, sports, pre-employment etc, as these require a longer time allocation. There may be a fee payable.

MEDICAL CERTIFICATES

These are issued only after the patient has seen the doctor and it is agreed the patient is not fit for work.

To ensure you do not lose any benefits and the current certificate does not expire please make an appointment to see the doctor when your sick note is due.

GENETIC TESTING

The surgery is also a DNA testing centre.
