Flu Season

 

We are now taking bookings for our flu vaccinations.

We have weekday and Saturday appointments available. We are not operating any walk in sessions this year.

We are also taking bookings for Fluenz Nasal Spray appointments for children aged 2 & 3 years old

During the flu season we ask:

DO NOT arrive before your allocated time. You MUST wear a face mask and your temperature will be taken on the day.

It is vital that you DO NOT attend for the vaccination if you or a member of your household currently has symptoms of COVID-19 or if you are self isolating due to contact with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19

Entry to the Flu clinics will be signposted , via the rear door next to the scout hut, with safe, socially distanced queuing in place .

 

Flu Vaccinations 50-64 year olds

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

 

IMPORTANT

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 you MUST not attend the surgery. All patients are being advised to log on to the NHS 111 online for further advice.

The surgery is open from 8am-6:30pm. If you have an urgent problem during these times please ring the surgery. At all other times ring NHS111

The online and telephone appointment booking system is temporarily suspended. We ask patients to use E-Consult as your first method of contact for treatment & advice. All sick notes, medication, referral queries and GP letter requests must go through E-Consult. Requests via E-Consult for non-urgent problems can be made between 8am – 6:30pm Monday to Friday. The practice will respond with 2 working days.

Due to COVID we are operating what is known as total triage, this is a virtual appointment. Your GP or nurse will review your problem and will then depending on your needs:

  • Offer you advice via text
  • Offer you a telephone consultation
  • Offer you a video call
  • Ask to see you in person (face to face) or
  • Navigate you to other services

Prescriptions requests will be available for collection 48 working hours after submission from your nominated pharmacy. Please use the NHS app on your smart phone, order via the website, warccg.recholeslane@nhs.net or post your request through the door/ drop in the box. We ask you do not contact the surgery before this time.
