NEWSFLASH Measles Epidemic 25th April 2013
Please note the surgery will be recalling all our patients aged eighteen or less, who have an incomplete record of MMR immunisation currently. This is in line with the recent Department of Health Guidelines relating to the current Measles Epidemic. A local programme inviting all patients aged between 18 and 25 with an incomplete MMR record will also be introduced shortly. Patients can call the practice now and book an MMR vaccination appointment with one of our Practice Nurses if they know their child's immunisation history is incomplete.
Please note that our Annual Patient Survey Report has now been published for 2012-13. Follow the link in the right hand column of this page to view our final report which hi-lights our Patient Participation Group activities over the year.
Please note the annual patient Questionnaire 2013 results are included at the end of our final annual report, but are also still available to view in our "Survey Results" section in the right hand column of this page.
