FLU VACCINATION CLINICS

This year the practice is offering two different vaccinations, based on the latest guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

We will be offering the Fluad vaccination to all patients aged 65 (on or before 31/3/2019) as this has shown to be the most effective for this age group.

For all patients not in this age group, who are eligible for an NHS vaccine, we will be offering Quadrivalent vaccination which offers protection from four different strains of flu.  This is based on the World Health Organisation's recommendation for the 2018/19 season.

We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations - please contact Reception on 01948 662033 to book your appointment.

EMERGENCY & URGENT TREATMENT

The practice offers a Telephone Access appointment for all patients who require an urgent (same day) appointment. 

We are also fortunate in Whitchurch to have a Minor Injuries Unit based at Whitchurch Community Hospital.  The minor injuries nurses can see you for sprains, lacerations, head injury advice, bites etc.  The unit is currently open from 9 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday.

Dodington Surgery

surgery.JPGThe surgery is situated in a Georgian town house built around 1740 and has been a doctor’s surgery for at least 135 years. Medicine has changed immeasurably since that time but the traditions of family medicine have not, and the total care of patients from cradle to grave is still practised here in a homely atmosphere for the benefit of all our patients. We aim to provide a service that is in accordance with the latest medical knowledge, but also to include the best traditions of personal care that was a great feature of general practice in the past.

To this aim, in 1995,  we converted the old stable area into a waiting room and reception block. We hope that we have maintained a homely atmosphere within the restraints of ever increasing paperwork.

The entrance is through the main gates and through the door signposted ‘Reception’. The doctors and nurses will come through to the waiting room to collect you so it is important to stay in the waiting area. We do request that all mobile telephones are turned off on entering the surgery.
