Noticeboard

Smoking Status

Over the coming weeks an organisation called Provide will be contacting a number of our patients to confirm their current smoking status, and to provide stop smoking support as appropriate.  Please be assured that this work is being undertaken on behalf of the surgery

Flu Vaccine

Please book in for your flu jabs if you are eligible.

Winter Infections

 As the weather declines we are seeing an increased number of patients with upper respiratory infections.  Almost all of these are VIRAL in nature and not BACTERIAL, and therefore ANTIBIOTICS WILL NOT HELP.

Before making an appointment to see a doctor, please try cold and flu remedies from your pharmacy, drink plenty of fluids and keep warm.  It can sometimes take a week to 10 days for symptoms to improve.  Your local pharmacist will be happy to advise and, of course do contact the surgery if symptoms worsen or you remain concerned.

If you are a patient on one of our ‘at risk’ registers, or are over the age of 65, and have not already done so, please make an appointment for your flu vaccination.

A total of 170 appointments were wasted in April 2017, totaling 39 hours:

Test Results

xrayPlease telephone between 2.00 & 6.15pm for the results of blood tests, x-rays etc.

Most blood tests are available within 48 hours after blood is taken.

Plain X-rays reports are usually available after 72 hours.

Results such as urine, stool or swab cultures are also usually available after  72 hours.

In all cases certain tests may take much longer, for example if the hospital has to send them away for processing.

Tests ordered by hospital clinics are not usually sent to us - if in doubt you should contact the hospital.

Important note

We do not usually contact patients about results: there are just too many coming into the surgery. It is your responsibility to ensure your results are satisfactory.
