Noticeboard

Thought for the day...

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing:)

Coronavirus has not gone away....

Hands - > wash regularly

Face -> wear a mask

Space -> keep your distance

Fresh air -> meet outside

We continue to ensure we keep our staff and patients safe - you will therefore be required to continue to wear a face covering when entering our Practice and use hand sanitiser 

COVID-19 Vaccine update

Anyone who has not yet had their Covid vaccination and who wants one should now call 119 to book an appointment at a local hub.  

Covid booster vaccinations

The programme will be rolled out to the same priority groups as previously. This means care home residents, health and social care workers, people aged over 50, those aged 16 to 49 years with underlying health conditions that put them at higher risk of severe COVID-19, adult carers, and adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals will be prioritised.

We will be contacting eligible patients very soon.

Flu Vaccinations

Calling 50-64 year olds - please call our surgery to book in to one of our clinics asap.

 

Medication Collection Machine (Dotty)

 Dotty Dispense-it our medication collection machine is available for patients to pick up their medication at their convenience 24/7, even when our practice is closed.  You must collect this medication within 3 days of receiving the text message. Pick up a consent form from our reception and register now.

Clinician appointments 

Our surgery have been working throughout the Covid pandemic and we have not stopped seeing patients who need to be seen.   We have however moved to a telephone triage system which will continue.  This means our clinicians will speak to patients about their problems/medical conditions - before making a decision about whether they need to actually be seen or not.  

Delay in obtaining Covid Passports for patients using 'preferred' names

Check that the name on your passport matches how it is displayed by NHS COVID Pass at least 2 weeks before you travel. If the names are different, contact us to have your details updated (we will need evidence of your passport/birth certificate).

Patients requesting new/alternative medication on their repeat scripts

If you require additional or alternative medication - even if you have had these before for a similar complaint, please call the Practice on 01406 370265 (opt 1) between 8.00-11.00 Mon-Fri to discuss with one of our GP's as we cannot dispense new medication without a consultation. 

Admin patient hatch opening 5/7/21

We have opened our new Admin hatch within our waiting room  between 13.30-15.30 each weekday.  This will be for walk-in patients who have queries regarding new registrations to or deductions from our patient list, test result or referral queries. 

CQC audit update

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) exist to monitor, inspect and rate all locations in the UK who provide health care services to patients.  We have received the following statement from them : "We carried out a review of the data available to us about Moulton Medical Centre on 10/06/2021. We have not found evidence that we need to carry out an inspection or reassess our rating at this stage".  This is great news as we continually strive to provide a high standard of service to our patients.  We were rated GOOD in all areas at our last inspection in 2017.

We need your mobile contact details

We now have available additional resources to enable us to liaise with our patients via text message which will be beneficial to both us as a Practice and our patients.  Please ensure we are aware of your up-to-date mobile no. to enable us to reap the benefits of this facility.  Anyone who has provided us with a mobile number will be opted in to receive text messages (unless you specifically ask us not to) many thanks.

Repeat Prescriptions 5 days required

Due to unprecedented volumes of repeat prescriptions being required, we need your co-operation to enable us to support all our patients medication needs.  Whilst the Coronavirus situation remains in place, you will need to allow 5 working days for us to process your request.  We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.  Where possible, please do not leave collection of your medication to Friday as the number of patients attending is causing social distancing issues.

You may collect your medication between 08.00 - 12 noon and 13.30 and 18.00

Thank you for your help and understanding during these difficult times.

We thank you in advance of your co-operation during this period.
