Noticeboard

  • Age 16 or 17?  You can now have your covid vaccination.  You can do this by attending a walk in clinic, details below:

    https://stwics.org.uk/our-priorities/covid-19-vaccination-programme/walk-in-clinic-times

    Please do not try and book through the practice, we cannot book covid vaccination appointments for you.  The national online booking service will only allow you to book if you are within 3 months of your 18th birthday, so please attend a walk in clinic if you are 16 or 17. 

    Or if you are going to the Telford Balloon Fiesta this weekend, Bob the Bus will be there too, so you can #GrabAJab there if you prefer!

     

    Covid Restriction Update:  13/7/21
    Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

    From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery - patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE.  We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.  

    In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e consult and by video), not counting vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months.

    The local community has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL patients as we can.

Statement of purpose

Our objective is to provide people registered with the practice with high quality Primary Care GP services, and to seek continuous improvement on the health status of the practice population overall. We aim to achieve this by developing a practice which is friendly, effective, responsive to patient needs and utilises whenever possible,  the latest advances in Primary Health Care.

Our aims are - 

To provide the best possible quality service for our patients within a confidential and safe environment

To show our patients and our staff courtesy and respect at all times, with fair and equal treatment for all

To involve our patients, their families and carers in decisions regarding their treatment

To promote good health and wellbeing to our patients through education and accessible information

To ensure that all members of the team have the right skills and training to carry out their duties competently

To provide improved patient access and multi-disciplinary care with  a variety of clinical and allied health professionals, in the right place, at the right time

To encourage our patients to get involved in the practice through the Practice Participation Group and  open dialogue  on the care they receive
