Noticeboard

BOOSTER DAYS where you’ll see a mass media campaign takeover promoting the uptake of vaccines ahead of the festive season and there are a range of resources to support this on the Campaign Resource Centre (CRC). BOOST DAY will drive mass awareness and momentum around the importance of boosting your immunity this winter.

Messaging encourages those eligible to book their vaccines as soon as possible so we can all enjoy the festivities safely with our loved ones. This includes both flu and COVID-19 boosters, the evergreen offer for anyone still to get their 1st and 2nd doses of COVID-19 vaccine and second doses for 16-17-year olds. We welcome you all to get involved and use the BOOST DAY materials to make this day as big a success as possible.
 
Other new campaign material that you might have missed includes:

 
Winter Vaccinations
Covid-19 Health Behaviours
Hannukah Social Statics - For those who have not seen the new Festivals and Celebrations assets that went up on the 25th Nov - Hannukah runs until Dec 6 so there is still time to use these social media resources.

Welcome to The Medical Centre

How to see a Doctors.

One of the most effective ways is to use and e-Consult as your first port of call to access a GP.

eConsult logo
Fill out a simple online form to get advice and treatment by the end of the next working day. Please note that your request will be dealt with by a doctor. If you prefer you can continue to call the practice during normal working hours.
Ask about common problems like coughs, back problems or mental health
Ask about general symptoms like dizziness, tiredness or pain
Ask for administrative help like sick notes, test results or doctor's letters
Get help for your child

eConsult

You can also use our online service facility.

To sign up for our online services you need to come to the practice to sign a consent form and show some form of ID.

 

The receptionist will register you and give you a document containing your pin number and log-on details. Please keep this document safe as it contains your personal information.

 

With these log-on details you can register at Patient Access. Once that is done, you are ready to go. The icons to use can be found on our Home Page.

 

Through Patient Access you will be able to:

-  book / cancel appointment

-  order repeat prescriptions

-  view your medical records

-  change your contact details

  

Repeat prescriptions

You can use Patient Access to request a repeat prescription – as long as the review date has not expired.

Prescriptions can be collected two working days after your request.

Tip: If you have a Pharmacy you always use, you can sign up with them for Electronic Prescribing. This means that your prescription will be sent electronically to the Pharmacy so you won’t have to come to the practice to collect it.

 

Appointments

Please ensure that you book your appointments appropriately. If you are unsure as to whether you need to see a doctor, contact us by telephone. Maybe a telephone consultation or an appointment with the nurse is more appropriate.

 

Unfortunately the system is not flexible enough to allow you to book appointments for family members: you can only book appointments for yourself.

 

As a result of the pandemic, we had previously asked patients not to come into the practice due to the risk of infection. The government has indicated that as from the 19th July 2021, there will be an easing of lockdown restrictions nationally.

We are  asking patients to continue to wear masks for appointments - even when restrictions ease.

The Medical Centre is urging people to cover their mouths and noses to 'protect staff and the vulnerable' from Covid-19.

The doctors at the Medical Centre are pleading with patients to wear masks 'until further notice'.

Who can get a booster dose from a walk-in site

You can get a booster dose from a walk-in site if it's been 3 months (91 days) since your 2nd dose and you're either:

If you have a condition that means you're at higher risk from COVID-19, you’ll be sent a letter, text message or email reminding you to have your booster dose at least 3 months (91 days) after your 2nd dose.

You can take this letter, text message or email, or a letter from your GP or hospital specialist about your health condition, to any walk-in vaccination site from 3 months (91 days) after the day you have your 2nd dose.

If you do not receive a letter, text message or email but you think you’re eligible, please contact your GP surgery.

The 4th dose for people with a severely weakened immune system is being rolled out

If you've had the 3rd dose for people with a severely weakened immune system, you'll be eligible for a booster dose from 3 months (91 days) after your 3rd dose.

This is not currently available at walk-in sites, but your GP or hospital specialist will invite you for your booster dose when it's due.

If you've had a positive COVID-19 test

If you're eligible for a booster dose and you've had a positive COVID-19 test, you need to wait 4 weeks (28 days) before getting a booster dose.

This starts from the date you had symptoms, or the date of the positive test if you did not have any symptoms.

Health and social care workers

If you're a frontline health and social care worker, you can also get a booster dose from a walk-in site.

Please bring proof of your employment such as workplace photo ID, a letter or a payslip from your employer within the last 3 months.

If you've had a positive COVID-19 test

If you're a frontline health and social care worker and you've had a positive COVID-19 test, you need to wait 4 weeks (28 days) before getting a booster dose.

This starts from the date you had symptoms, or the date of the positive test if you did not have any symptoms.
