Dr Anisha Patel
Unfortunately Dr Anisha Patel has been diagnosed with Bowel Cancer and is facing surgery and Chemo therapy. We all wish her well and look forward to her return in due course. In her absence Dr Laurence Woolley will be looking after her patients.
There is a possibility that Dr Patel will be working remotely at some stage during her recovery.
As a result of damage in the surgery carpark we have taken the decision to install CCTV. Cameras will cover the carpark, front and back entrances.
In 2018/2019 the following patients and children are eligible for flu vaccination:
- all children aged 2 to three
- those aged six months to under 65 years in clinical risk groups
- pregnant women
- those aged 65 years and over
- those in long-stay residential care homes
Please call the surgery to make an appointment to have your flu vaccination.
NO Longer accepting Pharmacy managed prescriptions
It is estimated that over-ordering, stockpiling and not using medication, costs the local NHS around £2.5 million per year. To reduce these costs the local CCG group, inline with others have made changes. These changes mean that patients must place orders on repeat prescriptions themselves. The pharmacy or supplier will not be able to do this for the patient.
This does not change how your medicine or equipment is delivered or received. The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) still allows you to nominate a pharmacy or supplier to fill your prescription for collection or delivery.
The NHS are encouraging patients to self-care where possible with medicines brought over the counter at a pharmacy. This of course freeing up GP appointments. Please see our appointments tab for a list of self help medications and listen to the following podcast.
