Noticeboard

This years Flu Clinic Programme is being delivered very differently to previous years due to the Pandemic. We are running the clinics on the first 3 Saturdays in October. If you are eligible for the vaccine you should have already received a letter from us with instructions as to how the clinics will run detailing social distancing and other safety measures.

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR CAR PARK WILL BE CLOSED ON THE DAYS THE FLU CLINICS ARE RUNNING.

If you have any queries about the Flu campaign this year or your appointed time, or indeed if you feel that you should have received a Flu Invitation letter and you haven't, Please email us at queries.Z00308@gp.hscni.net

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SELF CARE

Empowering people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when they need to, gives people greater control of their own health and encourages healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term. See advice resource bottom of right hand column.

In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients, such as those with comorbidities, the very young and elderly, managing long-term conditions and providing new services.

Oriel Surgery Training Practice

 

Oriel Surgery has been accredited as a training practice, and from early August 2015 we will be hosting qualified doctors intending to become GP’s. Becoming a training practice means that we have been recognised for achieving higher standards of patient care – something that we earnestly value and treasure.

 

The GP Trainee is a fully qualified doctor who already has experience of hospital medicine and will gain invaluable experience by being based within the practice.

 

Please do not hesitate to speak to the GP or staff member about this new development

 

 

 

 

 

Cancelling your Appointment

 If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone the surgery as early as possible to cancel your appointment.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

Test Results

The Practice has an electronic link to the laboratory at the local Hospital.

To receive test results, please contact the Practice between the hours of 11-12pm and 3-4 pm. The receptionist will be happy to inform you of the test results reported by the doctor.

For reasons of confidentiality, information will not be given to another person unless prior permission has been given.

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
