Noticeboard

Dispensary Text Messaging Service

From 1st May 2019 the practice intends to launch a new text messaging service for dispensing patients.  This will allow our Dispensing Team to notify you of when your repeat medication is ready for collection or whether there is a query with your repeat medication request which we need to discuss with you saving you from unnecessary journeys to the practice or unnecessarily long waits in the Dispensary queue.

If you collect your repeat medication from the practice dispensary and would like to receive notifications of when it is ready for collection please complete the SMS Consent form online or complete a consent form next time you're in the surgery.

If you already receive SMS Appointment Reminders then there is no need to complete another consent form.

For further information or if you have any queries then please speak to a member of our Dispensary Team.


NHS Prescription Fee

Please be aware that the NHS Prescription fee will rise to £9.00 from the 1st April 2019.

Pregnancy

Since the 25th January 2016, the Peterborough Maternity Services became a paperless process.

This means that you will now need to register your pregnancy online at the Peterborough and Stamford hospital portal and complete the Maternity Self-Referral Form .

You can access the Maternity Self-Referral Form on the Peterborough City Hospital website by clicking here .

The Maternity Self-Referral Form must be completed and submitted in order for your notes to be created and passed to the practice electronically; you will no longer be given a Pregnancy Pack.

Once you have submitted your form online you will then need to contact the Community Clerk at Health Centre in Bourne on 01778 394185 who will arrange an appointment with one of our Midwives.  This appointment can take up to one and a half hours.

Please note, that in accordance with NICE guidelines all pregnant women are advised to take Folic Acid and Vitamin D supplements which are available from Pharmacies and all major Supermarkets.


Baby Clinic

The Practice holds a Baby Clinic every Thursday as follows:

  • 11:15 - 12:00 for Immunisations
  • 13:30 - 15:00 for Immunisations

You can see the nurse for immunisations or the doctor.

This is a well-baby clinic and children who are unwell should see the doctor at a different appointment rather than come to this clinic. They will not be able to see a doctor for their illness at this clinic.

Unfortunately, the community health visitors are no longer able to offer Baby Weighing appointment although your baby will still be weighted during the normal reviews.


Childhood Immunisations 

One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.

Ideally, children should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.

Find out which jabs your child needs, when they need them, and what the benefits of each jab are.

Please call the surgery to make an appointment.
