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.

Choose and Book

What is Choose and Book?

Choose and Book is a service that allows you to choose your hospital or clinic and book an appointment with a specialist.

Since summer 2004, Choose and Book has been introduced across England. It will eventually be available to all patients.

From 1 January 2006, when you and your GP agree that you need to see a specialist, you will be able to choose from at least four hospitals or clinics. You will also be able to choose the date and time of your appointment.

The benefits of Choose and Book:

  • You can choose from at least four hospitals
  • You can also choose the date and time for your appointment.
  • You experience greater convenience and certainty. With the old system, your hospital or clinic chose the date and time of your appointment. This may not have been convenient for you. With Choose and Book, the choice is yours.
  • There is less chance that information will get lost in the post because more correspondence takes place through computers.

For more information see the Choose & Book NHS Website

Over the last year, Shropshire have set up a Referral Assessment Service to ensure patients receive an appointment as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Once your GP has made your referral, you will be contacted by the Referral Assessment Service who will go through your choices with you.
