NEWS:

AS OF THE MARCH 2017 YOU CAN NOW BOOK DIRECTLY WITH OUR PRACTICE PSYCHOLOGIST, DR LAURA FISK.

THE FLU VACCINATION CLINIC ON SATURDAY 23rd SEPTEMBER 2017 WAS A SUCCESS – WE VACCINATED OVER 1200 PEOPLE.

We are continuing to run catch-up vaccination clinics at the surgery throughout Autumn and Winter for those who have not yet been vaccinated against flu this year. Please ring ahead as for the later catch-up clinics we may need to generate a prescription for the vaccination a few days prior to your attendance. Pre-school children over the age of 2 are also being vaccinated against flu at Station Drive Surgery.

How to Make an Appointment
All surgeries are run by an appointment system. In addition to our usual appointments we have “same day” bookable appointments that can be booked on the day via our reception team. We have routine appointments available 8am until 8pm Monday to Friday. We also have routinely bookable Saturday morning appointments usually every other weekend. If you have registered with the help of our reception team you can also access the online appointment booking system by clicking here: Patient Access online system.

If you are new to our practice and would like to be seen here you can join by completing a simple registration form. You can download this form here (new patient registration form) or collect one from our reception team. For most people only the first page needs filling out and signing. You can hand the form in at our reception desk (or even post it to us at Station Drive Surgery, Ludlow, SY8 2AB) or you can email a completed form to admin.stationdrive@nhs.net (please entitle the subject heading “new patient” or words to that effect) – our team can then register you straightaway so you can avoid paperwork prior to your first appointment.  It is helpful (but not essential) that you can provide the details of your current GP when registering as a new patient here.

Emergency Appointments
We are really keen to provide the best possible access. Once all the available “on the day” appointments are booked we have a “Duty Doctor” available. Any urgent appointment request is passed to the Duty Doctor who will call you back as soon as possible and then arrange treatment options which may include a review on the day, an appointment with your usual doctor or advice. Any patient needing advice or review will be called back on the day and decisions made about best treatment options.
Clinical Psychologist Appointments
Dr Laura Fisk is our doctor of psychology who provides appointments on Wednesdays and Fridays 9am – 5pm. She works with all people of all ages to try and help find solutions for the challenges that life can create. Please book in directly via our reception team.
Direct access to physiotherapy
Alternatively you can self-refer to the physiotherapy telephone triage service on 01743 454912 (without GP authorisation). You will speak to a trained physiotherapist who will assess your problem over the phone. He/she may provide advice and guidance and/ or organise a course of physiotherapy in Ludlow when required. Remember Drs Harris can also offer joint injections for certain joint problems.
