WE ARE NOW IN A POSITION TO OFFER YOU AN APPOINTMENT FOR YOUR FLU VACCINATION. PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY TO ARRANGE A CONVENIENT TIME. ALL CLINICS WILL BE STRUCTURED VIA APPOINTMENT TIME TO ENSURE SOCIAL DISTANCING. WE WOULD ALSO ASK THAT YOU WEAR A MASK WHEN YOU ATTEND.
IN LINE WITH GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES WE WILL BE DELIVERING VACCINATIONS TO OUR PATIENTS WITH LONG TERM CONDITIONS, THOSE WHO ARE PREGNANT AND THOSE WHO ARE AGED 65+ INITIALLY.
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
BHF Brierley would like to invite you to join DoctorLink.
We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line.
Registration is simple and you can register here:
For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.
The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required, you simply click on the request appointment link.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
You can also use this app to request medication and continuation of sick notes.
You can even download the App:
