Flu vaccines 2016
FLU VACCINES ARE HERE AND AVAILABLE VIA PRE BOOKED APPOINTMENT.
If you normally have a flu jab then please ring us and book an appointment. We have flu clinics starting Monday 19th September running most days for 4 weeks only. We have a limited supply of vaccines so please ring early to avoid disappointment. As always there are strict guidelines that we must follow regarding flu vaccines - we can only give them to patients that are felt to be at a greater risk: over 65 years, suffer from a long term condition (diabetes, heart, stroke, kidney, neurological or respiratory disease) are immunocompromised, pregnant, have a learning disability or are aged 2 - 4 years.
PLEASE NOTE: We cannot give flu vaccines privately nor can we give flu vaccines for occupational health reasons. If you require the flu vaccine for Occupational reasons then please speak to your employer.
The nasal flu vaccine should hopefully be available for the 2 - 4 year olds by mid October. We will contact parents when we have an exact delivery date.
We are currently looking to recruit a new receptionist to join the Holly team. The successful candidate would be expected to have a good standard of education, be polite, friendly and have a high level of communication and computer skills.
Reception Job Specification
The available post would be for 36 hours per week, Monday to Friday (Wednesdays off).
If interested, please write to the Practice Manager including your CV and references.
The closing date is Monday, 26th September.
Detailed Coded Record Access (DCRA).
We are now able to offer our patients access to their 'coded data' within their medical records as well as the availability to book appointments and request repeat medication. The coded data includes immunisations, problems, referrals, procedure codes and other useful information. If this is something you are interested in accessing then please call at the surgery (bringing ID with you) and complete an online access application form. We are unable to action any online access requests over the telephone, via email or in writing as your ID must be verified.
EXISTING ONLINE USERS ALSO NEED TO COMPLETE AN APPLICATION FORM TO INCREASE THEIR ACCESS TO INCLUDE DCRA.
Missed Hospital Appointments
We have become increasingly aware that patients who do not attend for their hospital appointments are being discharged back to their GP. Under the NHS standard Contract for Hospitals 2016/17 this is no longer allowed. Please click the link below to see the template letter written by Pulse regarding this. We will be sending this letter to any hospital department that informs us that one of our patients has missed an appointment. We will also send a letter to the patient informing them we have written to the hospital.
If you have not attended your hospital appointment as you feel you no longer need to be seen can you please inform the hospital directly so they do not send you further appointments
