Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

With effect from 15/6/2020, all patients attending AMG for a face to face appointment MUST arrive wearing a face covering or mask please

Due to national public advice on social isolation we are changing our appointments to minimise risk of contact in the community.

We need to limit the spread of the Corona virus in our community to protect our vulnerable. We have to cancel all booked face to face appointments, effective immediately. We WILL run urgent and necessary appointments only. If you have an appointment you will be contacted by our team. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have been instructed to. We will be running a telephone service but please be patient as we are experiencing very high demand at the moment. Many Thanks.


FLU VACCINES 2020 -21

Please Note

This year, early demand for flu vaccine has been higher than usual and delivery of our stock has been in batches over a number of weeks, so therefore we only have a limited availabilty at certain times. 

The priority this year is to vaccinate those who are most at risk from flu first, including people of all ages who have a health condition that makes them more at risk from flu. People aged 50 to 64 without a health condition that puts them at risk from flu will be offered the vaccine later on and should wait to be invited for vaccination.

Although it is best to have the vaccine before flu starts to circulate, which is usually from December onwards. Even having it later in the season, it is still worth having.

Who can have the flu vaccine?

You can get a free flu vaccine if you:

  • are 65 years old and over (including those aged 65 by 31 March 2021)
  • have certain health conditions
  • live with someone who is on the NHS Shielded Patient List
  • are pregnant
  • receive a carer’s allowance
  • are the main carer of an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick

Children aged 2 to 11 on 31 August 2020 are also eligible for the flu vaccine (with 2- and 3-year-olds offered it in GP surgeries and school-aged children offered it in school).

You can get the flu vaccine at your GP surgery or a pharmacy if you’re a health and social care worker employed by a:

  • registered residential care or nursing home
  • registered homecare organisation
  • hospice

You can also get the flu vaccine at your GP surgery or a pharmacy if you provide health or social care through direct payments or personal health budgets.

This year the free flu vaccine will be offered to healthy 50- to 64-year-olds later in the season. People in this age bracket with a health condition that makes them more at risk from flu will be offered it sooner.

Visit NHS.UK to check whether you are eligible.

 

You may be able to get your vaccine elsewhere if your GP practice or pharmacy has run out

If you are eligible for the free flu vaccine, you can get it from your own GP practice or any pharmacy offering NHS flu vaccinations. They should be able to tell you when they next expect to be able to offer you a vaccine.

Pregnant women can ask their maternity provider for the free flu vaccine and some of those visiting hospitals, either as in- or out-patients, may also be offered the flu vaccine there.

 

 

 

Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by Primary Care (PC24) Out of Hours service. PC24 is an urgent care centre based next to the Kings Mill Hospital Emergency Department (ED) that provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a nurse led service (Monday – Friday) and is supported by General Practitioners (GP’s) in the out of hours period (i.e. anytime that your normal GP practice is closed).
 
This service is for problems which cannot wait until the next available surgery. You will be required to provide full information about your problem and will be expected if required to attend PC24 if necessary. Advice may also be given if attending for a face to face appointment is not deemed to be required.
 
During out of hours you should telephone the practice and instructions will be provided on how to contact NEMS.
 
For other general medical advice you can always contact the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.
