Stay well this Winter

People are being urged to keep an extra special eye on themselves and the people they care for over the winter period so minor illnesses don’t become more serious.

People who are older or have long term conditions may be particularly vulnerable to winter bugs which could become serious and require hospital treatment. Getting help earlier may prevent this from happening.

To make sure winter bugs don’t become more serious:

  1. Have your flu jab
  2. If you start to feel ill, get help from your pharmacy straight away.
  3. Keep your home warm, at least 18 degrees
  4. Make sure you take any medicines as directed
  5. Get any repeat prescriptions filled in advance as many surgeries and pharmacies close over Christmas
  6. Keep a supply of cold and flu remedies in the house so you don’t need to go out if the weather is bad
  7. If you are prescribed antibiotics finish the course
  8. Don’t go to A&E or call 999 unless it’s an emergency. If you are in any doubt, NHS 111 can help you get the right treatment

 

Making evening and weekend appointments – giving you more choice - GPEA (GP Extended Access)

GP practices in this area are making it easier for you to make appointments at times which suit you.

From October 2017, all practices in South East Hampshire, Fareham and Gosport – including ours – will take part in a new scheme to allow you to make appointments from 8.00am to 8.00pm on weekdays, from 8.00am to 4.30pm on Saturdays, and on Sunday mornings.

This extends the normal opening hours for surgeries which, until now, have usually run until 6.30pm on weekday evenings.

If you do need to see someone, we will be able to offer you an appointment at your local ‘hub’ location – they are located at Petersfield Community Hospital, Waterlooville Health Centre, Havant Health Centre, Fareham Community Hospital and Gosport War Memorial Hospital.

You will be seen there by a locally based healthcare professional. The service is led by GPs but also includes other staff such as nurses, or healthcare assistants. The staff can (with your consent) access your medical records, ensuring a high quality service.

Please note: the new extended opening hours is not a walk-in service – you need to make an appointment.

You can make an appointment by talking to our surgery staff and booking a slot in the normal way or , if we are closed and you think you need to see someone more urgently, you can call NHS 111 to ask to make an appointment.

For more information talk to our staff or ask for our 'Question and Answer' document which is held at Reception.
