Noticeboard

We are aware that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has recommended the extension of the Covid-19 vaccination programme to 16 and 17 year olds. We are awaiting further guidance from NHS England on when the programme will commence and how the vaccinations will be administered to this age group. Please do not contact your GP – eligible young people will be contacted when the programme commences to advise on the next steps.


On week commencing 9th of August 2021 we are sorry to be saying goodbye to Dr Vivek Patel, who is leaving for a new venture in Sheffield. We all wish him the best for the future. In the same week, we will be welcoming Dr Robert Webster as a new salaried GP to the Practice and look forward to working with him.


To book your Covid vaccination(s), you need to use the 119 service online or phone 119

Demonstrating COVID-19 status

Individuals in England who have had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine can now get proof of their vaccination details and demonstrate their COVID-19 status for international travel using the NHS COVID Pass.

There are 3 options to demonstrate COVID-19 status: via the NHS App (if you have full access to the App and are registered at a GP surgery), through NHS.UK and by letter from the 119 telephone service.

Practice Management

Mrs Leanne Ashton (f)

Mrs Leanne Ashton

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.
