FLU CLINICS

Flu clinics start 4th October.  We are sending out texts to patients who are eligible and have a mobile number recorded on our system.  If you are eligible for the flu vaccination please call our Flu Vaccination Booking Line 07752 534916.  If the line is busy please try again.  We have up to 5000 patients to vaccinate and we appreciate your patience during this time.

New Telephone System

We have recently had a new telephone system installed which we hope will make it easier for patients to access the surgery.  There have been some issues getting this new system setup which we hope will be ironed out soon.  We appreciate your patience during this process.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Lodge Health surgery remains open and staff are consulting with patients.
Please continue to attend any scheduled appointments you may have, including those arranged for the flu clinic.
Due to Covid-19, staff at the practice may need to self-isolate and this could regrettably have an impact on waiting times for some patients.
We ask our patients, family members and carers to please have patience with us at this time.  Staff are working diligently to keep services running for you.
Please remember to wear a face covering on entering the building for your appointment and keep it on for the duration of your visit.
We have seen a huge increase in the amount of calls for repeat prescriptions, we have 3 ways in which you may re-order your repeat prescriptions:

  1.  Online (which is the preferred method and hassle free & application can be  
       downloaded from our website)
  2.  Ring the Prescription telephone number  & a message can be left on the  
        voicemail when we are closed.
  3.  Drop your repeat prescription (with Name & DOB & repeat order) into the
       outside letter-box.  To protect our staff , there will be NO access to the reception desk.
       
 Thank you for your co-operation
