Please note that as from Monday 11th January the practice will no longer be using DoctorLink.

 

E-Consult

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, all requests for advice/appointments/documentation should be requested via an e-Consult as this helps our practice team deal with each request in a timely and safe manner.


The benefits include:

  • Improved/speeded up access to clinical expertise as e-Consults are triaged throughout the day and answered within 48 hours

  • A streamlined ‘patient journey’ – request dealt with by the most appropriate member of practice team

  • 24/7 ability for you to request advice (NB: e-Consults only looked at during the working week from Monday to Friday)

We understand that some of our patients may find completing an e-Consult form challenging and we want to reassure our patients that our Reception Team are happy to signpost patients to a central support hub where care navigators will assist with the completion of the e-Consult form.


If you have a medical condition that requires IMMEDIATE or URGENT attention, for example patients who are receiving cancer treatment; patients who are receiving palliative care; patients with a learning difficulty, please contact our reception/care navigator team for further advice. 

 


 

FLU VACCINATIONS 2020/21

Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group 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. 

 

 

When contacting the surgery please note that all prescription queries will be re-directed to the POD so please call them first by telephoning 01474 555 800.


 We have had a significant increase in abusive behaviour on our phone lines and would like to remind patients of our zero tolerance policy and that our receptionists have got the right to terminate the call following a warning if the abuse persists.
