ANTIBIOTIC AWARENESS DAY
UNFORTUNATELY, NO AMOUNT OF ANTIBIOTICS WILL GET RID OF YOUR COLD!!
The best way to treat most colds, coughs or sore throats is plenty of fluids and rest.
Antibiotics treat infections by killing bacteria, but now the bacteria are fighting back !!
Our medicines are becoming less effective which means more deaths and more
complications for people receiving treatment in hospital. We have to tackle this
problem before it gets worse.
25.000 people die each year across Europe from infections resistant to antibiotics.
We have been listening very carefully to you and in light of your comments….
From Monday 5th October 2015
We are making some key changes to :
- When you can book GP appointments
- Individual GP availability on the day
- What types of appointments we are offering
- The number of GP appointments available
Of course, there will still be a daily on-call GP
dealing with urgent enquiries !
Almost half of our GP appointments will be available to book on the day, every day
All our GP’s will have appointment slots that can be booked in this way,
giving you the choice of who you would like to see
We will still be offering routine GP appointment slots bookable up to 3
weeks in advance
…you would simply like advice or to talk to a doctor
You can book a telephone appointment with any one of our GP team – this type of appointment will ALSO be
available EVERY DAY
Important: We are changing the system for ordering repeat prescriptions. Learn More...
