Christmas Opening Hours: New Dover Road Christmas Opening Hours 2019

7.11.19: IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHILD FLU VACCINE:

There are major supply issues affecting the child's flu vaccine which is affecting schools, surgeries and pharmacies. We have ordered as many as we have been able to, but been advised that we will not be able to order any more for the foreseeable future. The school nurses are in the same position, so if your child cannot have their vaccine at school, unfortunately we will be unable to help. We are receiving updates from Public Health England and will update this message accordingly if the situation changes.

UPDATE TO ABOVE, 29.11.19: We have now been able to order some more child flu vaccines and are sending invites to eligible children.

 Adult flu jabs are still available.

 

   

As well as a source of information about our practice, the    

  staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this

  website as a useful resource for other health-related information.

Thinking of registering? You're very welcome - pop into reception and ask for a registration form. Our receptionists will be pleased to help you. As part of the registration process we will ask for some photo ID so please ensure you have this available. If you are registering your child, please provide us with a copy of their immunisation history so that we can ensure our records are accurate and they get the best care.

 

For a detailed guide on a huge range of health conditions, including advice and treatment options, try the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/

- Reminder - it takes 2 working days to process your prescription requests, which must come in in writing. Pop into surgery, speak to your local chemist, or sign up to Patient Access to request your medication, ensuring you leave plenty of time (10 days is about right) before you run out.

 

- Please note, GP appointments are 10 minutes long and doctors see patients every 5 - 10 minutes all day. Please be mindful of this as you may need to prioritise one or two problems in your consultation. Dealing with multiple problems will cause doctors to run late. During this particularly pressurized time we ask patients to be aware of this and bear with us when we are especially busy. Please also bear in mind that 8:30 is not necessarily the first appointment of the day - doctors sometimes see patients before this time at their own discretion, which are extra appointments and may cause them to run late even first thing in the morning. Many thanks.
