Flu Clinics Now Available To Book.

Please Phone Reception For Further Details.

From October, GP and nurse appointments are now available during the evening and at the weekend for people across Coastal West Sussex.

This means that urgent appointments are available up to 8pm during the week, and during clinics on a Saturday and Sunday.

This aims to improve access to GP appointments and help local people to get the help and support they need.

The service is run by Innovations in Primary Care (IPC), a not-for-profit company owned by local GP practices.

The appointments will be available at local GP access hubs, run from GP surgeries, and they will be both routine and urgent appointments with a doctor, nurse or healthcare professional.

The teams will see new illnesses when you urgently need to see a health professional, and offer planned appointments such as family planning and smear tests that can be hard to arrange whilst at work or when you are caring for family or a loved one.

IPC has been running the MIAMI clinics in Adur and Worthing for the last three years, which has offered a very similar service, offering help for ‘Minor Injury Assessment & Minor Illnesses’.

These clinics have been successful and helped local people to access the help they need outside of normal opening times.

We hope that this roll out of the hubs across the whole of Coastal West Sussex will mean that all patients registered with a GP practice in our area can benefit.

You book into the GP access hubs by ringing either the Coppice Surgery or Angmering Medical Centre , and you may also be offered an appointment at one of the hubs at the weekend if you call NHS 111 for urgent health advice and support.

The hubs may be at your GP practice or they may be at a neighbouring GP practice locally in the community around you.

The teams will have access to your medical records with your consent, and any care they provide will be added to your notes so your GP practice can continue any ongoing care.

Patient rang & wanted me to relay his thanks to all the staff today at AMC and the smooth running of the covid clinic.     He said we were all very efficient, friendly and most helpful throughout, from the men in the car park, the ladies wiping down the seats, through to the nurses giving the vaccination.. We are doing a first class job and he is looking forward to his next visit.

XXXXXX has contacted us to say a big thank you for a very well run Covid Clinic. She was impressed and very appreciative

We would just like to show our great appreciation towards one of your kind staff member (Nicole) who helped us with a patient with initials of B.G.

The patients wife who is an elderly and vulnerable patient was waiting for the prescription which had been sent to Echo.

 

Nicole kindly quickly and efficiently arranged for the prescription to be sent electronically, and called us to make sure we had successfully received it.

Great to be working with such a kind individual such as Nicole, which also makes our jobs as health care professionals quick and efficient.
