Seasonal Influenza Vaccine
The Flu Vaccine is now available from the surgery and is free on the NHS for all patients over 65 or in one of the at risk categories. Please contact the surgery to make an appointment for this.
We held our main flu clinic on Saturday 23rd September and unfortunately experienced some computer issues, which caused delays. We would like to thank everyone who attended for their patience during throughout the morning.
Patients today rightly want more say in their own healthcare, they are better informed and expect to be treated as whole people, not just as a condition or ailment. We would like to hear your views on how we can improve services at Springmead Surgery. You can have your say by becoming part of the Springmead Surgery Patient Participation Group.

Patients can now register for Patient Access. Patient Access is an online service that allows patient to order repeat prescriptions, book nurse appointment and view their allergies and test results.
If you would like to sign up for this service please come into the surgery with two forms of ID. One photo ID (passport, driving licence etc) and one proof of address, such as a utility bill or bank statement. We will need to take a a copy of your ID and we will post out the documentation you need to set up an online account.
NAMED GP FOR ALL PATIENTS
In line with new regulations, each patient has a named, accountable GP on their clinical record, and this is the GP they are registered with. If you are unsure of whom this is please ask at Reception.
This GP has overall responsibility for your care but you can request an appointment with any GP that is available.
If you have a preference as to who your named GP is please let us know and we will make all reasonable efforts to accommodate your wishes.
We are obliged to publish net average earnings of the GP partners and salaried GPs - in 2014/15 this was £45,504 pa before pension and national insurance contributions - this calculation was based on 1 full-time GP and 5 part-time GPs.
