What matters to you?
We are waiting further guidance regarding distribution of the vaccine and how it will be delivered. Patients will be contacted in due course.
We kindly ask that you do not contact the surgery regarding this, we will advise patients once we have confirmation.
Dec 3rd - CORONAVIRUS VACCINE UPDATE
Nov 5th - CLINICALLY VULNERABLE PATIENTS (formerly Shielding Patients)
Adult patients previously on the shielded list will be sent letters centrally. These patients are expected to work from home – if this is not possible, they will use this central letter to enable them to claim Statutory Sick Pay. Please DO NOT contact us to provide these letters – these will be sent out centrally from the Govt.
We have been asked to urgently review ALL children formerly on the shielding list – we undertook this work over the summer and those patients affected have been contacted directly by the Practice.
New groups of patients have been added to the CLINICALLY VULNERABLE PATIENT LIST:
1. Patients with stage 5 chronic kidney disease. Acute trusts and Renal units have been asked to identify and contact these patients. Please DO NOT contact us as you will be contacted by your Acute Trust/Renal Unit
2. Patients with Down’s Syndrome. We are arranging for all of these patients to have a call with their GP or as part of their Learning Disability review with the nurse (if due). Letters will be sent to these patients early next week.
We have changed the way in which we manage long term conditions.

HANDi Paediatric App
The HANDi Paediatric app gives up-to-date advice about common childhood illnesses and how to treat them.
It’s now available to download for free onto any Apple or Android smartphone or tablet.
The app has been designed as a way to reduce the number of children and young people who visit A&E, but need no treatment. It has been developed by paediatric consultants and will give you access to home care plans, as well as GP and hospital clinical guidelines, for the most common childhood health care concerns.
