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.

Dear Patient,

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this we are inviting patients to join our patient forum or alternatively if time is an issue you could join our virtual forum (or 'patient lite').  As a member of our forum you will be asked questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received.

We will contact you via email  (for patient lite) and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

What the group will do

The Patient Participation Group will:

   1. Consult with the practice on service development and improvement

   2. Contribute to, and be kept informed of, practice decisions

   3. Represent the views of the patient body and provide feedback on their needs and concerns

   4. Contribute to the design of and participate in the review of the practice patient survey

   5. Promote good health and higher levels of health education by encouraging activitied within the   practice.

We aim to gather as broad a spectrum of patients as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
