News - June 2016
On Line Appointments - 13th June 2016
There is a technical problem with the On-Line Appointment booking system. Some patients who try to access the system are getting an error message which says that the practice is unavailable. We have reported this to the IT support team and engineers are trying to resolve the problem. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to patients and hope that this will be resolved soon.
Our practices nurses are happy to provide any travel advice you might need particularly if you are planning a trip abroad. Lynne Innes and Caron Fletcher are specially trained to give travel advice and this included discussion about immunisations, malaria prevention, safe eating and drinking, staying safe in the sun and other sensible health precautions. We do ask patients to make an appointment several weeks in advance of a trip. To request an appointment, please ask for a Travel Form from Reception or complete it on-line in the Travel Information section our website.
Two appointments will be required, one to discuss your travel arrangements and decide on the appropriate immunisations, and a further appointment to administer the vaccinations. There is no charge for the Travel Clinic, but some immunisations, including Yellow Fever, and all malaria prevention medication cannot be prescribed under the NHS. There is therefore a charge for the private prescriptions and for the medication at the pharmacy.
Hopefully for those staying at home, we will have a sunny and warm summer and if we do it is still important to think about staying safe in the sun. Children and those with fair skin can be more vulnerable to sun burn and should take precautions. Lots of useful information and advice is available on the Cancer Research UK website http://sunsmart.org.uk. So whether you are having a holiday at home or abroad, we hope that you have a very enjoyable, relaxing and safe holiday.
Compliments and Complaints
We are always keen to hear from patients about the services that we provide. It is gratifying to hear when things go well, but we accept that sometimes we could improve. We therefore encourage comments or suggestions which will enable us to identify problems and correct them. Complaints, concerns or comments can be discussed with any clinician or member of staff at the Health Centre or they can be sent in writing to the practice manager. Further information is available in the Policies section of the website.
