Welcome to the latest of our weekly newsletters. We regard it as a priority that all our patients are kept fully informed of all developments at Buckshaw Village Surgery, Croston and Adlington Medical Centres, our sites at Lostock Hall and on matters affecting former Eaves Lane Surgery patients. We hope these regular updates will continue to prove useful.
Covid Vaccination Programme
We are continuing with our vaccination programme with our regular vaccination clinics at our vaccination hub at Jubilee House, Centurion Way, Leyland PR26 6TR.
Opening hours are 8am-8pm from Wednesdays to Saturdays - closed for lunch 1-2pm – latest walk-in arrival 7:40pm.
Anyone aged 16 or over is now welcome to attend, as are patients aged 12 to 15 who have one of a number of pre-existing medical conditions and have received an invitation letter from us.
Please could those patients bring the letter with them as proof of eligibility.
Plans are also now progressing for a programme of third jabs for immuno-suppressed patients with a range of conditions agreed by NHS England and JCVI.
All such patients will shortly receive details by letter from ourselves or from their hospital consultant advising details of how to book this jab.
Please contact us if you have any queries or concerns on this issue.
We have had some inquiries from patients as to whether they can call in at our surgeries to make appointments.
As our surgeries are now full open, we are pleased to advise that you can now do this from opening time at 8am daily onwards.
Our reception staff will be happy to help you and also assist with any other issues or queries you may have.
However, please be advised that in line with other NHS buildings, face coverings remain compulsory at all our sites with no exceptions and social distancing rules must be maintained at all times while on site.
You can also continue to make appointments by phone via our usual number, 01772 376600, and our phone system will then redirect you to your own surgery as appropriate.
Old number now no longer redirecting
Patients are asked to note that the divert system for callers using our old phone numbers is now no longer in operation.
Calls to our old numbers will now therefore not access our system and will hear a recorded message telling them the number is discontinued.
All callers should use our new number, 01772 376600, and our system will redirect you as appropriate.
New Practice Nurse
We now have a new practice nurse in our team.
Lisa Wilkinson has joined us and will be based at Buckshaw Village Surgery but will also be working across the group as required.
We are sure you will join us in welcoming Lisa on board.
