Dr Latif who worked on a Thursday afternoon and Friday morning has left the surgery as from mid December.
We would also like to congratulate Dr Jackson who is leaving us in February, as she is going to join a partnership in Northfield.
Den who has been on reception for 20 years is retiring at the end of December. We wish her all the best and long and healthy retirement.
Patient Group Meeting
Our next patient group meeting is planned for:
Monday, 4th February 2019 at 6 pm in the waiting room.
All patients welcome.
We all continue to work very hard to try and provide a service which patients are happy with but demand is overwhelming.
We have recently employed an Advanced Clinical Practitioner who works on a Monday in the surgery. He is an experienced pharmacist who has developed the skills and knowledge to allow him to take on an expanded role in the practice. He is able to prescribe medication and offers 15 minute appointments.
We are also hoping to employ new doctors, in the new year to help cope with the demand.
It’s not too late to have your Flu Vaccination
If you have an underlying health condition (such as chronic heart, kidney, liver or respiratory disease) the flu may make your condition worse.
As the flu virus changes every year it is important to get vaccinated every autumn/winter.
