Whooping Cough in pregnancy

There has recently been a rapid rise in whooping cough, with a big increase in young babies. Due to this information it is important that we protect those young babies who may suffer. The babies that suffer are usually too young to have their first vaccinations, therefore the only way pregnant ladies can protect their baby is to have the vaccination themselves while they are pregnant. The best time to get the vaccination is between 28 and 32 weeks. Please contact the surgery for more information.

 

Pneumonia

Anyone aged 65 and over is entitled to Pneumonia vaccinations from the NHS. If you fall into this age catagory and have not previously had this vaccination please contact the surgery, for an appointment.

Blue_Locked_FolderConfidentiality

It will often be necessary for the reception and dispensary staff to take messages for the doctors and nurses.  Detailed messages enable the doctor to assess the urgency of the problem and prioritise his/her workload accordingly.  All staff are fully trained and information given will be treated in strict confidence.  All patient records are confidential.

We respect your right to privacy and keep all your health information confidential and secure.  It is important that the NHS keeps accurate and up-to-date records about your health and treatment so that those treating you can give you the best possible care and advice.  This information is only available to those involved in your care and you should never be asked for personal medical information by anyone involved in your care.

You have a right to know what information we hold about you.  If you would like to see your records, please call our practice manager at Penalverne Surgery
