Macmillan Coffee Morning
28th September 2018
Message from Macmillan -
Thank you Rachel for having a Coffee Morning for Macmillan and paying in £100. We hope you and your guests had a lovely day and enjoyed spending time together over a cup of coffee and some tasty treats.
We’ll get straight to work using the money you’ve raised to help make sure no one faces cancer alone. From the moment they’re diagnosed, all the way through treatment and beyond.
Thank you to everyone who contributed we raised
Friday 21st September
Thank you to all staff who joined in and contributed!
We raised £51.00!
We are now booking appointments for flu vaccinations!
Flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.
Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week.
However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as:
- anyone aged 65 and over
- pregnant women
- children and adults with an underlying health condition (such as long-term heart or respiratory disease)
- children and adults with weakened immune systems
Please telephone the surgery or pop in and speak to our receptionists to make an appointment

Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments now available
Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturday and Sunday). Appointments will either take place at this practice or at Five Oaks Family Practice. Talk to the practice receptionist to find out more or book an appointment.
By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients. Further information is available at www.england.nhs.uk/gpaccess
As part of the communications activity for the Manchester Access 'There for you' campaign, we would like to survey patients to test awareness levels now they are able to book evening and weekend GP appointments.
We would appreciate a few moments of your time to complete this short survey. It has been designed to test awareness of a new service available to all patients registered with a Manchester GP. Please click on the link below and follow the instructions online. Thank you - it is much appreciated.
