This year there are two different vaccines, one for patients 65 and over, the other from patients at risk 64 and under so please don't be surprised when the receptionist asks for your age. This is to ensure you are booked into the right clinic.

'Your Services - Your Say'
NHS East Lancashire CCG will be leading a comprehensive review of community services, in partnership with local providers and other key stakeholders. The overarching aim is to improve health and wellbeing outcomes and the quality of care for our population. The first survey will involve asking patients and carers for their views about district nursing, domiciliary phlebotomy (blood tests at home) and tissue viability nurses.
If you have received care from one of the services named above, please either complete the survey below or ask a member of the reception team for a paper copy of the survey.
Thank you for your help.

HELP KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE! Snap Chat - 'Snap Maps'
The social media app Snap Chat has recently introduced a new feature called ‘Snap Maps’ which enables users to keep track of where their contacts are located. This has raised concerns in the media that this new feature could increase the risk of bullying and stalking in young people. It’s particularly concerning for those who may have contacts added who they don’t know in person. There is the option to turn this feature off but I think parents and carers need to be aware of this. More info can be found on the Childnet & Safer Internet websites. Please click the links below for further information:-

Named Accountable GP
All patients now have a named accountable GP who is responsible for patients overall care at the Practice. If you would like to know who your named GP is, please ask during your next consultation or at reception.
Please be aware that this does not mean you can only see your named GP. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the Practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times, and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
When a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been allocated, the Practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
New patients will be allocated and informed of their named GP when they register with the Practice.
