FLU VACCINATIONS 2018

It's that time of year again when it is time to get your flu vaccination. Flu vaccinations are offered to patients in at risk categories for example if you are over 65 or about to turn 65 or suffer from certain health conditions. If you fall into one of these categories the practice will write to OR text you to invite you to one of our open clinics. If you think you should have been invited and haven't please contact the surgery and we will confirm if you require a vaccine or not.

This year a different vaccine has been developed specifically for patients over 65. The practice will be administering this vaccine to this group of patients.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED A LETTER OR TEXT A VACCINE HAS BEEN ORDERED FOR YOU BY THE SURGERY AND HAS BEEN RESERVED FOR YOU. NO ONE ELSE IS CARRYING OUT VACCINES ON BEHALF OF OR TO HELP THE PRACTICE.

The open sessions this year will take place at Bamber Bridge Catholic Club, Aspden Street, Bamber Bridge, on the following dates:

Saturday 20th October 9.00am - 3.30pm

Thursday 25th October 6.30pm - 8.30pm

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the surgery.

Care Navigation

As from the 1st May 2018 we are changing the way appointments are booked. We have listened to our patients and are aware that it is on occasions difficult to get an appointment; this is sometimes because people come to see a GP when they could be dealt with by someone more appropriate. As a result of this our team have been retrained and the doctors have produced a guide as to when and where patients should be seen.

From 1st May all patients telephoning to make an appointment with a GP will be asked the nature of their problem. Based on what you tell the Care Navigator you will then be advised of the most appropriate contact type in the most appropriate time frame.

Be assured that the decisions as to who you see and when you are seen are NOT being made by the Care Navigators but have been made by the doctors and the staff are referring to the guide issued by the GP’s. The reason for commencing this service is to ensure that our patients are seen by the most appropriate health care professional in the most appropriate time frame. We would also like to stress that everyone that works at the practice is bound by the same confidentiality rules as GP’s and nurses and anything that you say to them will be kept in the strictest of confidence.

If you have any questions regarding these changes please do not hesitate to ask.
