Shingles

Shingles is a one off vaccination offering lifetime protection. During flu season you can have this vaccine during your flu clinic appointment. Please contact the practice to make an appointment for this on 01707 283 450. This vaccine should not be given to patients who are immune suppressed, e.g. patients who are on chemotherapy or high doses of oral steroids.

As of April 18, the Department of Health recommends Shingles Vaccination for all patients patients turning 70 years (routine cohort) born after September 1942 and not yet had the vaccine and aged 78 or 79 years (catch up cohort) at the time of vaccination.

However some patients also remain eligible for the shingles vaccine up until their 80th birthday and may also be offered it. For more information about eligible criteria the shingles vaccine please visit the website below:

We listened to your frustrations...

tele

Solution ……

 

 

As a result of patient feedback over the next couple of months we are having a new digital telephone system fitted at both Rosegarth & Siddal Surgery.

 

This fully integrated single system which will cover both sites and will enable us to handle calls more effectively staff between sites.

 

The Rosegarth system will be installed first and then Siddal will be connected a few weeks later.

 

Once they all are both amalgamated, then all calls for both will be taken from Rosegarth as this will be our call centre hub.

The way patients will queue in the system which be more effective, you will be able to press an extension for example for the secretary and leave a voicemail if she is note available.  Patients/callers will also know what position they are in, whilst waiting within the queue.

 

It will take a few weeks to fully integrate so we appreciate your patience and understanding during this transition process period.

The Surgery Pod

 

surgery pod

The Surgery Pod, located in the Practice lobby, enables patients without clinical supervision, to perform their own checks such as blood pressure, weight, pulse, alcohol usage etc, which are then instantaneously updated into your patient records and can be immediately viewed by the doctors and nurses.

The Surgery Pod allows you to perform these simple checks at your own convenience, without making an appointment during our opening hours of 0800 - 1830 hours and therefore allows you to spend more high-value time with the doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional when necessary.

You may no longer need to arrange appointments or attend at inconvenient times for simple checks these can now be done at your convenience. You may wish to do your BP before you go in to see the doctor or nurse or you can come in any time to use it.
