Noticeboard

Our Flu Vaccination clinics will begin in September. We will be offering vaccinations to all patients aged 65 years and over. All patients with Chronic Conditions who are considered at risk. Pregnant women and children aged 2 - 3 years. There are several flu vaccines available and patients will be booked for the one that is most effective for their age. Our clinics will be timed according to the delivery of each of these vaccine types. This may differ slightly for each category. 

We hope to start booking our clinics in August once we have received confirmation of delivery dates. We hope to have completed our vaccinations by the end of November.

We would ask all patients contacted to book an appointment to respond to our first invitation. If you have not received an invitation by the first week of September and think you fall into one of the categories above please contact us and check.

When We Are Closed

Patients are advised to telephone NHS 111 when the surgery is closed. They will then be directed towards the appropriate service for their needs. 

Calls are free from both landlines and mobile phones.

Choose Well

The Doctors and Staff at Alderwood Medical Practice are supporting a national campaign to ensure people know where to go for medical help when they need it. Too many people are turning up at A&E because they simply do not know where else to go for treatment or what other services are available.

The Choose Well campaign, which is being promoted at GP Practices across the area, focuses on getting people the right treatment in the right place at the right time. It aims to help people to understand the different options available and to improve their experience of local health services.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
