Extra GP Appointments Available 


 


It is now even easier for people to make an appointment with a GP, thanks to a new national ‘extended access’ initiative, which will improve access to primary care services in North West Surrey.

This means, in addition to being able to book GP appointments at your local practice, you will also have access to additional appointments during the evenings and at weekends at four locations across the local area.


 


The extra appointments are being provided by the GP federation that brings together all 40 GP practices in the local area and is known as North West Surrey Integrated Care Services. 


 


By working together in a new and different way local GP practices will be improving access to primary care appointments, making it even easier for local people to get the care and advice they need, at a time that’s convenient to them.

These additional appointments will be available from 6-9pm on weekday evenings (including bank holidays) and from 9am to midday at weekends. Patients can book these appointments through their local GP practice.

As these extra appointments are provided from three GP surgeries in the area and The Bedser Hub in Woking, the GP or clinician will have access to your medical record, with your consent, giving them access to all the information they would need to provide the best possible care.


 


The additional appointments will be provided at the following locations – and patients in North West Surrey can book appointments at any of these sites:


 


The Red Practice – Walton Health Centre (Rodney Road, Walton-on-Thames, KT12 3LB)


Studholme Medical Centre (50 Church Road, Ashford, TW15 2TU)


Sunbury Health Centre (Green Street, Sunbury-on-Thames, TW16 6RH)


The Bedser Hub, Woking Community Hospital (Heathside Road, Woking, GU22 7HS)


 


Initially, these extra appointments will be provided by local GPs but from October there are plans to extend this service to also include nurse-led clinics, blood tests, physiotherapy assessments and digital consultations (which includes online face to face consultations via a patient smartphone).

Flu Vaccinations

Flu Campaign Winter 2018-2019

Flu vaccinations are now available. If you are unsure if you qualify for a free vaccine, or should have one due to medical issues, please ask our Staff.

People who should have a flu jab

The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk. This is to ensure they are protected against catching flu and developing serious complications.

You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you: 

  • are 65 years of age or over   
  • are pregnant 
  • have certain medical conditions 
  • are very overweight
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility 
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill 
  • are a healthcare worker with direct patient contact, or a social care worker

Over-65s and the flu jab

You are eligible for the flu vaccine this year (2018-19) if you are aged 65 and over on March 31 2019 – that is, you were born on or before March 31 1954. So, if you are currently 64 but will be 65 on March 31 2019, you do qualify.

Which children can have the flu vaccine?

An annual flu vaccine for children is available on the NHS from autumn 2018 for all children who are aged two and three on 31st August 2018.

The flu vaccine for children, which is given as a nasal spray, will also be offered to children in years one and two of primary school. In some parts of the country, all primary school children will also be offered the vaccine.

Most children will receive their flu vaccination at school, although in some areas it may be through alternative schemes such as community pharmacies and general practice.
