Noticeboard

Flu vaccinations:  Please note that people in the 50-64 year old age group will not be vaccinated until November/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 vaccinations, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Practice announcement:  We are happy to announce that Dr Shruti Rustgi will be joining the practice as GP Partner from 1st September 2020.  Patients previously registered with Dr Okon will be transferred to Dr Rustgi from that date.

Practice announcement:  We are sorry to inform you that Dr Okon will be leaving the practice at the end of August 2020 due to a change in her personal circumstances.  Dr Okon's last day at the surgery will be Thursday 13th August.  We will update on the arrangements being made to cover her post as this becomes available.

IMPORTANT:  If you are asked to attend the surgery for a face to face appointment, please arrive wearing a mask or face covering (i.e. a scarf).  This is only optional for children under the age of 5.  We need to retain our surgical face masks for clinical staff as much as possible, so are grateful for our patients for abiding by this request.

CORONAVIRUS: DO NOT WALK INTO THE SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN ASKED TO DO SO BY A MEMBER OF STAFF. THIS IS TO PROTECT OUR STAFF AND OTHERS

On line booking:  Please note that we have suspended all on-line appointment booking for the time being.  This is because on-line booking does not allow for triage/screening of appointments, so this has been necessary to safeguard both our patients and our staff.  Please accept our apologies for any difficulty this creates.

Repeat Prescriptions:  From 1st April 2020 you will no longer be able to order your repeat prescriptions from your local pharmacy or via another third party.  Requests for repeat medication should be made direct to the surgery via any of the following options:

Please do speak to a member of the reception team if you have any queries regarding this change.
