Newsletter – June 2017

from Sharon Unwin – Practice Manager

6-8 Week Baby Checks
Please book an appointment at the Surgery for your baby’s 6-8 week baby check as these will no longer be sent to you in the post. This is a double appointment (20 mins) and can be booked alongside mum’s postnatal check. Baby Immunisations cannot be given until baby has received their 6-8 week check.

Urine Samples
We have new forms for patients to fill in when dropping off urine samples at reception. The information requested makes it easier for the nurses to test and process the sample and decide if any treatment is needed.

Travel Vaccinations
If you are travelling abroad this summer please remember to check if you need any travel vaccinations. You can book an appointment with one of our nurses who will be happy to check for you.

Patient Participation Group
The next meeting of our PPG group will be held at Willingham Surgery on Thursday 8th June at 1.15-3.15pm. If you would like to get involved please come along and join us.

Out of Hours Care
Please remember to phone 111 if you require medical attention when the surgery is closed. Please remember that Accident & Emergency is intended for life threatening conditions or if you are likely to need an X-ray.

Repeat Prescriptions
Help the NHS to reduce waste by only ticking the repeat items that you actually need.

Self-Care Medication
It is very helpful if some minor conditions are treated with over the counter medicines. Why not pop into our Willingham Pharmacy and stock up your medicine cabinet.

Carers Support Meetings
Our next meetings at Willingham Surgery are on June 7th and July 5th, 2pm – 4pm. Please pop along and get some free support and advice.

Cambridgeshire Hearing Clinics
The next Hearing Aid Clinics at Willingham Surgery are 21st June, 19th July & 16th August 2-4pm. No appointment necessary, just pop along for your free NHS hearing aid batteries and for help and advice regarding hearing loss.

The Foot Care Clinic at Willingham Surgery run by Mrs Casey Javed is every Monday and some Wednesday mornings. For appointments please call 01480 301337 or 07807 505534 or visit www.stiveschiropody.co.uk.

Acknowledgements
We would like to extend our grateful thanks to the families and friends of Mr and Mrs Watkinson for their generous donation to our surgery equipment fund in memory of their loved one who passed away recently.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT IF YOU NO LONGER NEED IT!
