Seasonal vaccination programmes - Flu, shingles and pneumococcal
Patients can now book their flu vaccination appointment. Shingles and pneumococcal vaccinations are also available for certain patient groups. All patients aged 65 and over and those under 65 in at risk groups should have a flu vaccination. In addition carers and pregnant patients are eligible.
Children aged 2, 3 and 4 years (DOBs 01.09.2011-31.08.2014) are also eligible to be vaccinated by the surgery but children in school years 1, 2 and 3 will be vaccinated in school as part of the school based programme.
Please speak to reception to check eligibility and to book an appointment.
Practice CQC Inspection report
The surgery was inspected by the CQC in November 2015. We were delighted to receive an overall rating of Good, with Outstanding for caring. Click on the link to the right under 'further information' to read the full report.
Topcliffe Surgery Annual Patient Survey 2015-16
Thanks to all those who took part in our annual patient survey this year. We had 103 responses to our questionnaire. The results were extremely pleasing, and suggest year-on-year improvement in all areas of performance. The additional comments made by patients were overwhelmingly positive and congratulatory. If you would like to view the detailed results of the survey please click on the 'Survey Report' link on the right of this page under 'Have your say'.
Named Accountable GP
All GP Practices are now required to provide their patients with a 'named, accountable GP'.
The named accountable GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of appropriate services required under the practice's NHS contract and ensures that they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP).
All of our patients, including children, now have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care.
Please note that this does NOT prevent you from seeing any GP of your choice in the practice as you currently do now, and you will not see any change in the way care is delivered to you by us.
Online Access to Services
If you wish you can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP or Nurse, to request repeat prescriptions for medications you take regularly and to look at medication, allergies and adverse reactions within your medical record. You can use this service in addition to using the telephone and calling into the surgery. It's your choice.
