FLU SEASON IS APPROACHING
If you are eligible for an NHS flu injection, you should have received a text message or letter inviting you to come in. You can make an appointment via reception but we also have two walk-in clinics planned on Wednesday 17th October and Saturday 20th October both run from 8.30-11.30 a.m. You do not need an appointment for these but staff will be on hand to ensure that patients are seen in the order they arrive. Please consider that the clinic carries on all morning so you might like to avoid the 8.30am rush.
Question Of The Month
11th -17th June 2018 was Cervical Screening awareness week. While this is over, it is vital that eligible patients book their appointments. Remember to book your appointment with one of our nurses. Eligible women aged 25-64 will be invited every three years for a test, if you think you missed your last test, ring for an appointment. These screens save lives
Are you a carer?
We are keen to know if you are looking after someone so we can support you with carer consultations and guide you to other support. Please let the clinician or the reception staff know if you would like it recorded on your record that you have carer responsibilities for another person.
Change to Prescription Ordering
You can no longer order prescriptions using the WACCG.email@example.com email account. We have rationalised our ordering process to make it quicker and easier for you to use. Please see the repeat prescription page.
Patients who register for online access are able to make and cancel GP appointments, order repeat medication and view medical records 24 hours a day 7 days per week. Click here for information about registering.
Named Accountable GP
From 1st April 2015, the practice is required to provide all patients (including children), a named, accountable GP. For new patients, the named GP will be allocated during the registration process and for existing patients the named GP is the one named on your medical card. The named GP has responsibility for the care and support that the practice provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice for medical care as you currently do and please remember that not all GPs work every day. Please contact the practice if you wish to know the name of your allocated GP
