Noticeboard

BOOST DAY is this Thursday 2nd December and is a day 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.
You can also find a helpful guide to navigating our Campaign Resource Centre (CRC).

In 2011 we set up a Patient Participation Group which meets a few times each year to discuss the services we offer. We also discuss changes within the NHS, and how these might impact on patient care. 

  

So far the following changes have been made as a result of these meetings :

 

Opening times

We extended our opening hours. Since November 2013 we no longer close the door or divert the telephone between 2 and 4pm.


Communication
The Group thought that patients are not always aware of the services that are available in the practice. We therefore decided to have a look at the ways in which we communicate with you.
- we have installed a notice board specifically for practice news;
- we put more information on our website

 

Waiting room
We took out a subscription for a monthly supply of a variety of magazines, suitable for women, men and children.  

 

Consultations

It is now possible to book a telephone consultation;

- this will save you time if you have a query, but do not really need to see a doctor

- it will free up appointments for patients who need a face-to-face consultation

- it allows the doctor to give you an appointment outside the normal clinic hours if he decides you need to come in.

 

Reception area

We have changed the layout of the reception. The reception back office is sealed of with perspex screens. There is new flooring and an up to date reception counter.

PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP MEETING

Save the Date

Here at the Medical Centre, your views really do matter to us.

Please join us for our patient participation group (PPG) meeting on Tuesday 23 November 2021 @ 18.30pm at the surgery site in Holloway Road.

 

The agenda will reflect the latest improvements in both your clinical care and the way the service will continue to be delivered. 

We will be discussing your ideas for the future, any new staff and improvements and any Covid-19 related matters. 

We shall be offering light refreshments.

We look forward to seeing you. 

 There is an application form at reception and online for those who would like to register their interest beforehand.

 

If you have an idea on how to make the surgery even better, why not attend one of our meetings -  we are always looking for new members.

If you are interested please contact Gill Coulson, our senior receptionist or Chambis Georgiou, the practice manager. Email edo.rec@nhs.net or call 02076078259.


If you don't want to join the Group you can use the suggestion box in the waiting room, have a chat with one of our members of staff or click the 'Contact Us' tab to share your ideas with us.
