Welcome to Bridge End Surgery
Through this website we hope to improve our services to all our patients and enable you to find the information required at the click of a mouse. You can order repeat prescriptions online, download registration forms, change your name and address and much more.
Flu Campaign for 2012/2013
Appointments for flu vaccination are now available and vaccination is FREE OF CHARGE to the following 'at risk' people in order to protect them from seasonal flu:
- People aged 65 or over.
- If you are pregnant.
- People with a serious medical condition.
- People living in a residential or nursing home.
- Main carers for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer becomes ill.
- Healthcare or social care professionals directly involved in patient care.
Keeping You Informed
You can find out information about medical conditions and diseases through our patient information leaflets as well as keep up to date with all the latest practice news and developments. You can also allow the nurses to collect travel information by using the Travel Questionnaire.
Following questions about repeat prescriptions via the phone, we ceased doing repeats by phone some years ago for safety reasons like many other surgeries. Many medicines sound the same and have difficult names to pronounce which can lead to mistakes being made. There are several ways to order repeats, online, post, via several local pharmacies or by dropping thge request slip into the box in the surgery reception, but regret we cannot provide repeat medication by phone.
Our health centre has suitable access for disabled patients. All the patient areas including the waiting room, the consulting rooms and the toilets, have wheelchair access. If you require one, there is a wheelchair available at reception.
There are designated disabled parking spaces in the car park.
We are always looking at ways of improving access to the surgery and will be seeking views of patients on the best way forward in the coming weeks. In the mean time we recognise that due to the restrictions of the site we cannot always provide car parking for all users of the surgery. If you can park elsewhere it will help those less able particularly at busy times.
Please ensure if you use the car park and have to block other vehicles you leave your name and number plate with the Reception staff.
We have a number of extremely useful pages in the right hand menu that can help patients understand medical conditions and provide a source of ready help, these include 'Self Help'; 'Family Health', 'Long Term Conditions' and 'Minor Illness'
