FLU VACCINATION 2019
PATIENTS AGED 65 YEARS AND OVER
We held our first clinic on Saturday the 21st of September. Further clinics are plannd throughout the coming weeks and another Saturday clinic will be held on Saturday the 12th of October.
ELIGIBLE PATIENTS AGED UNDER 65
Vaccines for the rest of our patient population will only start to become available to us from the middle of October and our final delivery date is at the end of November. We will do our very best to ensure that vaccines are available to those patients that need them but in light of the national news that there may be a shortage due to changes brought about by Brexit we are currently unable to guarantee availability. Patients can have their names placed on a waiting list if they wish to do so.
Accessing a medical appointment outside of our opening hours
Crossroads Medical Practice is pleased to be able to offer our patients access to routine GP appointments at evenings and weekends.
The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.
The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods
Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments.
For urgent matters at evenings and weekends, patients will continue to access the GP Out of Hours Services at Lincoln County Hospital via NHS 111 or the Minor Injuries Unit at John Coupland Hospital.
The service is being delivered by a collaboration of GP practices in the area. If a patient wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they may need to travel to another local GP practice or a central GP practice hub and may not necessarily see their own GP.
Ultimately, this is about allowing a patient to see a GP or practice nurse at a time that is convenient to them.
You can now book the appointments outside of our normal hours and at weekends.
To arrange an appointment or for more information on when and where appointments are available, speak to a member of our reception team call 01522 862848
