Noticeboard

We are having difficulties with our telephones at the Owen Road site.  Please ring 01524 842200 to speak to a member of Reception staff.  We apologise for the inconvenience.

Flu Update

Flu is currently circulating in the community- we have had several cases confirmed over the past couple of weeks. It really is not too late to get your flu vaccination and we would encourage all our patients over 65 and under in risk groups eg. diabetes, respiratory conditions, pregnancy to get your flu vaccination as soon as possible. At LMP we have a good supply left so please make your appointment or call into the surgery as soon as possible.

Home VisitsDoctor's bag

Home visits are made at the discretion of the doctor and are usually reserved for the severely ill, very elderly or house bound patients.

The Reception staff will ask you for details of the problem which will be passed to the Doctor.  The Doctor may decide to telephone you before the visit and may ask you to attend surgery if they feel this is more appropriate.  This will often result in you being seen sooner.

If you are not sure whether you need to be seen at home or at the surgery, your doctor will be able to advise you.  For instance babies and children with fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, earache or a rash should be brought to the surgery and seen quickly.  Adults with similar illnesses can also be seen quicker at the surgery.

Requests for home visits should preferably be made before 11.00 am as this allows the doctor to plan visits more efficiently.
