Goodbye and Good Luck to Karen Cook - and Welcome to Margaret Hallam ( posted on Feb 12, 2019 )

We were very sorry to say "goodbye" to nurse Karen Cook at the end of December. Karen worked with us for the past 5 years, and made such an amazing impact on the clinical care of our patients. She has taken up a post as a Nurse Specialist at Wexham Park Hospital, and we all wish her the very best of luck in her new role. 

 

We are delighted to welcome Margaret Hallam to the surgery; she has taken over the clinical workload of Karen. Margaret comes from an Ambulatory Care background, and brings a wealth of knowledge and clinical experience. She will be working on a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - please book in at reception in the usual way.

Measles outbreaks in England, including confirmed case in Bracknell ( posted on Jan 8, 2018 )

Since November, measles outbreaks linked to large outbreaks in Europe have been declared in various places across England. Please note that Romania, Italy and Germany are the worst affected countries. All of the cases have been reported in children and adults who have not received 2 doses of the MMR vaccine. Measles is highly infectious and can lead to serious complications, particularly in immunosuppressed people and infants. It is also more severe in pregnancy and increases the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and preterm delivery.

There has been local activity recently in Thames Valley with one confirmed case in an unvaccinated child who lives in Bracknell. This case is not travel-related. 

Please ensure that you are up to date with your vaccines. If you are unsure, please make a telephone appointment with one of the nursing team. 

Measles starts with cold-like symptoms that develop about 10 days after becoming infected. This is followed a few days later by the measles rash. For most people, the illness lasts around 7 to 10 days in total. Initial symptoms can include:

  • a runny or blocked nose
  • sneezing
  • watery eyes
  • swollen eyelids
  • sore, red eyes that may be sensitive to light
  • a high temperature (fever), which may reach around 40C (104F)
  • small greyish-white spots in the mouth 
  • aches and pains
  • a cough
  • loss of appetite
  • tiredness, irritability and a general lack of energy

If you think your child/ you have the measles, please DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY, but telephone us for advice. Measles is HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS, and we do not want to put our patients and staff at risk unnecessarily. 

Don't stop your Antibiotics because of the News ( posted on Jul 31, 2017 )

A large number of newspapers, TV and radio programmes carried news recently recommending patients should stop their Antibiotics when they feel better and ignore doctors advice on the length of treatment.
Dr. Martin Kittel, GP Partner at Forest Health Group, Bracknell said "Please ignore the newspapers and read this article before you take any action."

If you are still wondering what to do after reading the article, please do what the health professional who prescribed your medications asked you to do.

Emailing the surgery ( posted on Jun 15, 2017 )

Please note that we will only accept email requests for repeat prescriptions. We will NOT accept email requests for clinical information (e.g. referral letters, query about a clinical condition etc.) and would kindly request that you make either a face-to-face or telephone appointment for these issues.

This is for governance reasons, and is to ensure that your clinical safety is maintained at all times. 

Thank you for your co-operation.

(Dis) courteous parking ( posted on Apr 13, 2017 )

When attending the surgery, please consider our neighbours and park courteously. Please do not park across their driveways, as this inconveniences them as well as being inconsiderate on your part. 

Please do not park immediately outside the surgery entrance either - we are situated on a blind bend, and for those who are turning out and cannot see on-coming traffic, this is dangerous. 

A polite reminder that the rear car park is for STAFF ONLY. Patients are continuing to ignore the clear signs and park in there. Three staff cars have recently been hit and damaged by inconsiderate individuals ignoring the signage and blatantly disregarding the rules. 

Thank you for your co-operation. 

Check in screen ( posted on Apr 6, 2016 )

You will have noticed that we haveÂa new check in screen, and we have changed its location to just inside the waiting room on the wallÂnext to the reception desk. This means that you will be able to check in as soon as you come into the surgery, rather than having to walk right through the waiting room.ÂPlease ensure that you follow through all of the screens right to the end and click "FINISH" otherwise the system does not update, and we will not know that you are here.

Credit card machine ( posted on Oct 8, 2015 )

We have a credit/ debit card machine available for your convenience when paying for non-NHS services at the surgery.

 We accept all major debit and credit cards. Please note: we do NOT accept Americal Express.
