Latest News

Flu Vaccines are now available!!

Autumn always heralds the arrival of the 'flu vaccine though the start date for the campaign is determined by the availability of delivery to surgeries around the country.

We now have our vaccine in stock and many patients have already had this important immunisation.

If you are aged 65 and over, or in an at-risk group, it is recommended that you avail yourself of this vaccine.  Please contact the surgery to book a suitable appointment with our nursing team.

At risk groups include those patients with diabetes, respiratory conditions such as asthma, COPD, sarcoidosis, those patients with kidney/liver/heart disease.

NHS England has printed out several leaflets for patients in at-risk groups that you may find helpful to read.  These can be accessed under the headings below:-

Chronic Kidney Disease - please click here

Diabetes - please click here

Heart Disease - please click here

Liver Disease - please click here

Neurological diseases - please click here

Respiratory conditions - please click here

PLEASE DO NOT WAIT FOR YOUR INVITATION - feel free to contact us at any time to book your appointment, but don't leave it too long!! We would like our patients to be protected as soon as possible.

Children aged 2 and 3 years of age will be invited by letter along to our annual Children's Flu Party and each child receiving an immunisation will be given a party bag of goodies.  This immunisation is in the form of a nasal spray and not an injection.

Collection of clinical waste from your home

What is Clinical Waste?  This is anything that contains human or animal tissue, swabs/dressings, bloods/bodily fluid, drugs and/or 'Sharps' i.e. syringes/needles.

If you have waste of this kind at home, it must be disposed of safely and is collected by arrangement with the Council.  A leaflet explaining what Clinical Waste is and how it is removed can be found here

A registration form for Cornwall Council to collect your clinical waste can be found here

Unfortunately, the surgery cannot take any clinical waste, including full Sharps bins from patients or their carers at the front desk.  We can however, take unwanted medication.

Extended Clinician Availability

We are pleased to announce that from the beginning of July we will be offering early morning appointments with our nurses from 7.30am, Wednesdays at Tregony and Thursdays at Portscatho.  (Please note we are unable to do childhood immunisations on these early sessions).

In addition, our GPs will be offering telephone appointments before and after their surgeries (early morning/late evening) - Please contact our reception team for availability.  These can also be booked online.

General Data Protection Regulations

Many of you will have heard of the new General Data Protection Regulations which govern the way in which data is accessed and shared.  These rules encompass access to medical records for solicitors, insurance reports etc., as well as patients who require access to information. 

If you need copies of your medical records, in the first instance you will need to complete a Subject Access Request form which can be found here

A member of our admin team will then process your request. 

As part of the GDPR, we have an obligation to inform our patients about the 'fair processing' of the information we hold and details of this can be found here

Additionally, there are screening programmes (things like the National Bowel Cancer Screening, Aortic Aneurym Screening, Diabetic Retinopathy Screening etc) where we may share information to Public Health England.  A plain-english explanation is provided here but you may decide to opt out of sharing that data, and more detail about opting out can be found on the Patient Online tab on the home page.
