Meningitis ACWY Vaccination

Is your date of birth between 1 September 1996 and 31st August 1997?

If yes you are eligible for a Meningitis ACWY Vaccination.

We are holding clinics on the following dates:

22 June, 30th June and 7th July 2016

Please make an appointment to have your vaccination done at one of these clinics here at the surgery.

It is very important that you take up the vaccine. It is being offered in response to a rapidly growing increase in cases of a highly aggressive strain of meningococcal disease group W. This disease can cause meningitis and septicaemia that can kill in hours, and those who recover may be left severely disabled.

Going to university?

If you’re planning to go to university, please make an appointment as soon as possible before leaving for university. You are at more risk of meningitis and septicaemia in the first weeks at university when you mix with lots of new people, some of whom may unknowingly carry the meningococcal bacteria, which is usually spread through prolonged close contact.

If you decide not to have the vaccination please let us know so we can enter this on your medical records.

Further information on the vaccination programme and meningococcal disease can be found on NHS Choices at:   http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/vaccinations/Pages/men-acwy-vaccine.aspx

Changes to the Appointment System from January 2016

Changes to the Appointment System from January 2016

Thank you to all the patients that have taken the trouble to fill out the Friends and Family Feedback Cards and Comments Book.

We have listened carefully to your concerns regarding getting an appointment and also getting through on the phone in the mornings for a same day appointment.

From 2nd January 2016 we will be making the following changes to our appointments system.

Each day there will be an urgent clinic for patients who have an urgent problem and need to be seen the same day.

 This clinic will run from 9am – 11am.  All patients must have registered for the clinic before 11am to guarantee that they will be seen.

The clinic will be run by our new “Duty Team” which will consist of a Doctor and our ECP.

Patients DO NOT need to contact the Practice beforehand.  If you fit the above criteria just turn up and check in with the Receptionist.  She will add you to the list and you will be seen in order of attendance.

Please note this system if for urgent matters only.  Please do not attend for a routine matter as you will be re-directed to Reception to make a routine appointment.

Repeat Medication requests and repeat sick note request should be made through the usual channels and will not be dealt with during the urgent clinic.

There is a leaflet available from the Practice if you require any further information.

Patients whose dates of birth fall between the following dates are now eligible for a vaccination against shingles:

2nd September 1935 – 1st September 1937
