Self Care and Help

CHANGES TO SERVICES DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

DURING DIFFICULT AND WORRYING TIMES FOR PATIENTS - AND FOR THE PROTECTION OF NHS STAFF  WE HAVE MADE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES:

TO MINIMISE SPREAD AND RISK TO PATIENTS, AND STAFF WE MUST ASK PATIENTS NOT TO VISIT THE SURGERY UNLESS ABSOLUTLEY NECESSARY
 

WE HAVE SWAPPED OUR APPOINTMENT SYSTEM TO ALL TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS - IF YOU NEED TO BE SEEN THE CLINICAL STAFF WILL ARRANGE THIS WHEN THEY CONTACT YOU.

WE ARE REQUESTING THAT PATIENTS DOWNLOAD THE NHS APP - YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ORDER REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS - PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU NOMINATE A PHARMACY SO THAT PRESCRIPTIONS CAN BE SENT DIRECTLY.

WE WILL FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE TAKE PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS OVER THE TELEPHONE AND THEN SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO THE PHARMACY.

 

 Visit the links below to see if you can self help or get more inspired to live well.  
 
We want you to be pro-active about taking care and staying in good health, so we've added the links for Live Well and Wellbeing sections too, so please do check them out, get inspired and share with others!
 
THE SELF CARE FORUM - Gives lots of information on daily illnesses to chronic conditions.
 
The self care forum has all sorts of resources, fact sheets, news and events.

How to get travel vaccinations

We offer a full range of vaccinations for foreign travel. For all advice and information regarding foreign travel please make an appointment with the practice nurse 8 weeks before departure so that immunisation can be completed. It would be very helpful if you would print off and complete the Travel Form which can be found in the News and Documents section of this website. When completed deliver, post or fax it through to the practice so that the nurse can check which vaccinations you will require before you come for your appointment.

Please note that not all travel vaccinations are stocked by the practice and not all are free of charge.
