Waiting Times in Surgery

We do always try to run to time but it often proves difficult given the complexities of modern healthcare

Last year 78% of patients were seen within 20 minutes of their appointment time.

 


London Landmarks Half Marathon

Two of our doctors - Dr Lucy Hickman and Dr Chris Duffy -  ran a half marathon on Sunday 25th March to raise money for St Wilfred's centre in Sheffield.

The centre provides care for the homeless, vulnerable and socially excluded.

They raised nearly £1000 and donations can still be made in surgery or by following this link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lucy-anderson20

10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

It's hard to believe it's now 10 years since we moved into our current premises.

Many of you will remember the old prefab Health centre and then our time in Portakabins.

When we first moved in we felt we had plenty of space but now it feels like we're bursting at the seams!

 


TIME SWAP

Could you give an hour of your time to receive an hour of someone else's time ?

Time Swap is a new scheme operating in Derbyshire - swap time not money !

 


FLU CLINICS 2018

Last winter the NHS struggled under the weight of respiratory illness. Much of this illness was a direct consequence of high levels of INFLUENZA.

Flu vaccination offers protection against flu and this winter is being offered FREE to more individuals than ever by the NHS.

At risk individuals include :-

  • Pregnant women
  • Those who live or work in long-stay residential homes
  • Carers
  • Those with chronic heart, lung, liver or kidney conditions
  • Those whose immune system is compromised

All children aged 2-4 are offered the nasal flu vaccine.

Our Saturday morning flu clinics are always very popular.

This year we’ll be running clinics on the following Saturdays :-

  • 29th SEPTEMBER
  • 6th OCTOBER
  • 20th OCTOBER 
  • 10th NOVEMBER
  • 17th NOVEMBER

We are also holding a flu clinic on Thursday 8th November for anyone who can't make a Saturday. 

STAY WELL THIS WINTER — MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR FLU JAB

This service is funded as part of a Government initiative and is in addition to the existing appointments we provide.

The service is being offered on a locality-wide basis and the appointments will be at Gosforth Valley Medical Practice in Dronfield (S18 8UE) or Moss Valley Medical Practice (S21 4BZ)

These appointments will be staffed by locum GPs and nurses.

Extended Access appointments can be booked by speaking to a member of the practice team.
