IMPORTANT: FLU VACCINES FOR 50-65 YEAR OLDS (not otherwise eligible)

The national press has this morning (Friday 20th November) reported the confirmed roll out of the above extended flu vaccination programme from December 1st. We were not given any prior notice of this announcement and therefore do not have our additional vaccine supply or clinic schedules in place yet.

Please bear with us whilst we clarify the exact details. To allow us time to organise the logistics of the delivery of this important vaccination programme, we respectfully request that you do not contact the surgery to request to book your vaccine at this time.

We will update this message as soon as possible, once our additional vaccination clinics are available to book.

We are aware many of you have already expressed your interest in having this vaccination via a previous text message contact. We will contact you to schedule your vaccination soon.

Thank you for your understanding.

Practice Management

The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.

Reception

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.

Certain staff members have a working knowledge of languages including French, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Gujarati and Italian.

Secretaries
