New Doctors'  Appointment System 

On the  29th January 2018, the Health Centre introduced a Telephone Triage Appointment System, in which all patients’ requests for a face consultation with a doctor will be triaged by a GP.

 

 

This means that patients will receive a phone call from the doctor within a few hours of making contact with the Health Centre, and, if mutually agreed, patients will be seen face to face within the same day (or another day, to be mutually agreed).

Flu  2018/19


The Health Centre has run out of Flu vaccines for the over 65’s and the manufacturer is unable to provide anymore.
The Public Health recommendations for what to do next are:

·   1-  Use other providers to access the recommended vaccine

·  2-   Receive the Quadrivalent vaccine – Public Health suggests that in the event that over 65’s vaccine is not available, and is highly unlikely to become available, the under 65’s vaccine may be offered as a second line option.

Have you thought about your winter plan?

People are encouraged to have a personal winter plan so they are well prepared when the weather takes a turn for the worse and the season for flu, coughs and colds really kicks in.

Tehmeena Ajmal, the county's first winter director, said: "We would like everyone in Oxfordshire to have a winter plan for themselves and their family, so that they know what they can do to keep as well as possible; what they can do if they start to get unwell; and how they can look after older family members, friends or neighbours who might need some help.”

Personal winter plans should include: 

  • Having a free flu vaccination if you are in an ‘at risk’ group
  • Getting help early before your condition worsens.
  • Getting repeat prescriptions in plenty of time
  • Having a well-stocked medicine cabinet

 For more information see here: Have you thought about your winter plan?

 You can also download or link to the Age UK Oxfordshire leaflet ‘Staying Well this Winter’ which is full of useful advice on how to stay well this winter.
