Noticeboard

Cleaners wanted - please see our Job Vacancy Page - under Further Information below.

The next flu vaccination clinic will be held on Saturday 1st October from 8am - 2.30pm.  If you are eligible, please come along.  No appointment necessary.  The car park will be busy so please consider walking, lift-sharing, using local taxi or town bus.

PLEASE GET YOUR FLU JAB FROM THIS SURGERY. HAVING YOUR FLU JAB WITH A PRIVATE PROVIDER (SUCH AS THE CHEMISTS) TAKES MONEY AWAY FROM THE NHS. IT ALSO MEANS THAT VACCINE SUPPLIES ALREADY PURCHASED BY US MAY HAVE TO BE DESTROYED. HAVING YOUR VACCINATION HERE ALSO ENSURES THAT IT IS FULLY DOCUMENTED IN YOUR HEALTH RECORD, AND ENSURES THAT YOU RECEIVE OTHER VACCINATIONS SUCH AS SHINGLES OR PNEUMONIA AS APPROPRIATE.

Next Patient Participation Meeting - date to be arranged.  

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - After over 28 years at Bodriggy Health Centre, Dr Slater is retiring at the end of September.  Dr Tamara Curnow will be joining the practice from the beginning of October.  If you are registered with Dr Slater you do not need to take any action because you will be automatically transferred to Dr Curnow on 1st October.  If you wish to register with one of the other doctors, please speak to a member of the reception team.

Parking at the surgery - During busy times, the car park gets full.  Please allow extra time to park your car.  Parking is allowed along Queensway but please do not park next to the wire fence which leads to Green Park Road & Bowling Green Court - this is private property and a wheel clamping zone.  

Do you need to drive to the surgery?  We would like to encourage patients to walk, cycle, car share or use the town bus where possible.  We also encourage staff to walk, cycle or lift share and offer the Cycle to Work Scheme. 

Beware of Bogus Callers.  We have had a few patients contact us regarding telephone calls they have received.  The caller has informed the patient that their doctor has asked them to call regarding health related issues (e.g. supplements or aids then the caller tries to sell products to the patient).  Sometimes the caller appears to know some information regarding the medication the patient is on (one example is Warfarin) and/or that the patient suffers from a certain medical condition (i.e. arthritis).  These callers are bogus.  The Surgery takes confidentiality very seriously.  We would never divulge confidential information to third parties.  If you receive such a call, please do not give any personal information to the caller and try to obtain as much information about the caller as you can (i.e. name, telephone number, company name etc) and pass this information onto the Police and local Trading Standards Office. 

On the 1st November 2016 the practice will be closed for training from 1pm. There will be an Emergency GP On Call. All telephone calls will be diverted to the Doctor Answering Service.  Any routine matters will be dealt with the following day.
