Noticeboard

PLT - PLEASE NOTE BOTH SURGERIES WILL BE CLOSED ON TUESDAY 12TH MARCH FROM 1.00PM UNTIL 6.30PM FOR STAFF TRAINING.  SHOULD YOU NEED MEDICAL ASSISTANCE DURING THIS TIME PLEASE DIAL 111



Improved Access


We are excited to announce that we have joined with other local practices and are now offering evening appointments from 6.30pm - 8.00pm and on Saturday mornings on a rotational basis.  Our rota will mean one evening per week and 1 in 5 Saturday mornings we will offer clinics here at Wadhurst with other neighbouring practices providing clinics on the other days.  We hope this will assist patients who are unable to access the Surgery during normal hours.  Please contact Reception to book an improved access slot.



GP Sessions


Please note due to a growing number of GPs working part time at Wadhurst Medical Group, please be aware that you may be offered an appointment with another GP other than your registered GP.  If you wish to see a specific GP, we would advise Patients that there can sometimes be a wait due to work patterns.  



Reception Changes


Please note our Receptionists will now be asking patients what the problem is on the telephone.  This is to signpost patients to the best clinician for their care.



Flu Jabs


We are still offering flu jabs for those who are over 65 or in an At Risk Group.  Contact us to book in.



Patient Participation Group


We are looking for patients who would be interested in contributing to the continuous improvement of services and quality of care. If you are interested, please ask reception for a form.


 


Repeat Prescription Forms


Please leave completed forms in the black box in the surgery lobby. It will take 48 hours to allow us to process repeat prescriptions.



Travel Clinic


Unfortunately we are only able to offer a limited travel vaccine service at the surgery. This is only for those vaccines available through the NHS.  There are local travel clinics available who will be able to advise and help you with all your requirements for your travel abroad.
