SATURDAY FLU CLINICS
We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations. If you are 65 and over or diagnosed with having coronary heart disease, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, renal failure, have suffered a stroke, are a carer or are pregnant we strongly recommend that you have a flu vaccination. Please phone and speak to one of our receptionists after 11am to book an appointment. Clinics are available at both Seaton and Colyton in September and October.
VETERAN FRIENDLY PRACTICE
We are an 'Armed Forces Veteran Friendly Accredited GP Practice'. This means we can help point you in the right direction for help and support.
If you are a Military Veteran, you should receive priority access to NHS secondary care for any conditions which are likely to be related to your military service.
If you are a veteran and believe that we do not know this, please let us know so we can update your medical records.
Do we have your correct Mobile Telephone Number on record? If you are unsure, or would like to register your mobile number, please see a member of our reception staff. We now send Text Appointment Reminders and will also use this way of contact to advise you of seasonal vaccination campaigns such as Flu Clinics. No personal medical information will be included in any text messages.
You are now able to order repeat precriptions for any medications you take regularly and look at your medication and allergies record online using the links from the practice website. You can also book or cancel appointments.
Using the online facilities is your choice and if you wish at any time to withdraw, the practice staff will continue to treat you in the same way as before. The decision will not affect the quality of your care.
To register for these services simply visit the practice with a form of photographic ID such as a passport or driving licence. You will be given login details, so you will need to think of a password which is unique to you. This will ensure that only you are able to access your record - unless you choose to share your details with a family member or carer.
The practice has the right to remove online access to services for anyone that doesn't use them responsibly.
