Would you like to join our Patient Group?

We would like to recruit some more people to join our on-line patient group, particularly some to represent younger people, as currently the group is weighted heavily towards our older population. We contact the group by e-mail on occasions to ask for their thought or ideas on changes we are planning within the practice or to comment on local health issues. You do not need to make a regular time commitment, you can respond (or not) at a time convenient to you and all replies are anonymous.

At the moment we are preparing a survey asking for ideas about local health needs to help the NHS develop Integrated Care Communities (ICCs).  This is a way of bringing together everyone in an area who is working with the community (from health, councils, voluntary groups and the community itself) to ensure services meet the needs of the local population.  This of course will vary from place to place and to assist with this the NHS needs to establish what each community needs to keep well and what health related issues each community feels that they have.

The survey will be available in paper form in both surgeries and an electronic copy will be sent to our patient group. The responses we receive will be published on the website.

Are you planning to travel abroad?

If you are planning a holiday abroad and think you may need vaccinations or more general travel advice please complete a travel questionnaire which can be found under travel on the clinics and services page. This will help us to assess if you need any further vaccinations, plan your appointments or just provide you with written or verbal advice. Once we receive your completed questionnaire it will be passed to one of the travel nurses who will get in touch with you as soon as she can.
