Across Redditch and Bromsgrove General Practices are working together to provide further appointments with GPs and Nurses on evenings and weekends . These can be accessed via the HUB and booked through your usual practice. The Extended Access HUB is currently held at a central location and this will be St Stephens Surgery in Redditch. We will hold at least one extended access clinic each month for further details please ask at reception.
Please note we are currently experiencing some issues with our text message reminder service for the HUB appointments, if at the time of booking you are advised your appointment is at the HUB it will be held at St Stephens Surgery NOT The Bridge Surgery. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. We are working to improve this.
2018's seasonal influenza vaccination clinics are now scheduled from September, please look out for updates on our clinics. This year stocks are limited and eligibility criteria has changed so if you are eligible we will write to you offering set clinic dates, unfortunately due to age specific vaccinations this year we are unable to provide the vaccination outside of these clinics times if you are unable to attend any of the offered dates please discuss with reception for advice and further provisional dates.
All indications are showing that our vaccinations will be here on time, we would be grateful if you can ensure that we have your mobile telephone number to ensure we can keep you up to date with any problems we may encounter, or inform you of additional clinics with capacity for patients to take advantage of.
While we would always advocate having a seasonal influenza vaccination for our over 65's and At-risk patients including Carers, if you are not intending to have a vaccination, please do tell us, as this will stop us contacting you repeatedly.
In the autumn/winter of 2018/19, the vaccine will be available free on the NHS for eligible children, including:
children aged 2 and 3 on August 31 2018 – that is, children born between September 1 2014 and August 31 2016 this will be offered within surgery
children in reception class and school years 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
in some parts of the country, all primary school-aged children will be offered the vaccine this should be offered within the child attending school
children aged 2 to 17 with long-term health conditions will be offered in surgery
DO YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE A UTI??
If you suspect that you have a urinary tract infection (UTI) this may not require a routine appointment with a GP as you can bring a sample into the surgery and hand in at reception before 12:00pm. A nurse will then test the urine and refer the result over to a doctor to review and issue a prescription if required.
NO SAMPLES WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER 12:00PM
