The Staff and GP's would like to say a big THANK YOU to patients for their generous Christmas Gifts
You will probably know that your doctors' surgeries and your local hospital are under extreme pressure especially as there are a lot of viral infections around at this time of year. We want to be able to provide the best care to all of our patients but especially those who are the most unwell. To help us to help you in this way, there are a few simple things that you can do:
- Before ringing your surgery, remember that your local Pharmacy can help with most self-limiting illnesses.
- Stock up on simple preparations and medicines, such as paracetamol, calpol/nurofen for children, anti-diarrhoeal medicine rehydration mixtures and indigestion remedies (all available from your Pharmacy)
- Remember to stock up on any of your repeat medications in good time for Christmas.
- Please spread this message to your family and friends.
Staff Update - We are very sorry to let our patients know that Dr Rosie Frankenberg will be retiring from the Surgery at the beginning of February 2020. We want to thank Rosie for her hard work and contribution to our Surgery since she joined us as a Partner in April 2018 and prior to then when she helped us a locum GP. Good luck and best wishes are sent from us all.
Did you know you can still have your free flu vaccination ? If you are aged 65 or over or are in an "at Risk" group please ask Reception to book you in for your vaccination. Flu can be unpleasant and it is important to ensure that sufficient patients do have their vaccination to safeguard enough immunity to protect the wider population.
