PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICE 31.10.18

Our colleagues in Public Health are predicting a surge in the number of people who will get pneumonia over the next couple of weeks. It is important  that if you have COPD that you ensure you have sufficient supply of inhalers and your other medication (including your rescue pack of antibiotics and steroids) and that you try and avoid mixing with people who already have coughs and colds over this time. Can we also take this opportunity to remind you to ensure you have had your flu vaccine this year and that you have had your pneumococcal vaccine in the past. Finally if you are still smoking we would encourage you to consider stopping to help your chest, discuss this at the surgery when you next attend.

For those who don't have COPD please contact us if you have a cough and fever that seems worse than usual, particularly if you are getting short of breath.

NORTHGATE MEDICAL PRACTICE EXTENDED OPENING HOURS

As you may be aware from the reports in the press, the Government are keen that all GP surgeries are open longer and offer different appointment times to their patients.

Appointments are available  Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday evenings* for both GPs and Nurses and are bookable in advance.  The GPs at the Practice are on a rota system, so may not have a regular evening session, but if you wish to be seen by a particular Doctor, please be aware, that there may, in some cases be a short delay in one becoming available for the GP you are requesting.

Please note that these evening appointments are available to all patients. Appointments are available to be booked in advance, others may be available on the day.

Please check out the dates when the Surgery will be closed on the training afternoons as we will be unable to offer late appointments on those days.

For urgent medical advice and treatment when the Practice is closed, please dial 111 for more advice.
 

On some occasions these late evening sessions may be changed when they fall on bank holidays on special occasions such as Christmas Eve, New Years Eve when we close at 6.30 pm. Canterbury medical practice
