Urgent messages from the Grove Medical Centre

There are two urgent messages from the Grove Medical Centre. Please read carefully. They may not apply to you directly, but you may be able to make others aware.

  •  Updated information issued by The Grove Medical Centre regarding child vaccinations:
    “We have been made aware that a segment on Good Morning Britain last week shared some incorrect information suggesting that the immunisation programme was suspended. This is NOT correct, it’s very important to maintain good coverage of immunisations, particularly in the childhood programme.

    If your child is due their vaccinations please ensure you keep the appointment. We have measures in place to ensure you and your child are kept safe. If you wish you can wait in your car until the nurse calls you in. Otherwise you can go straight into the blue waiting room (no need to check in). If you do need to cancel the appointment please ensure you rebook it as soon as possible 💉 “

 

  • Updated information issued by The Grove Medical Centre regarding dispensary team and local pharmacists:
    Our dispensary team, along with local pharmacies are currently inundated with medication requests. We now require 3 working days between the time you order your medication and the time in which it will be ready for collection. Please do NOT turn up before this time period unless your need is urgent (in which case please notify the dispenser when ordering).

     Over the coming weeks we are expecting to have less staff in the building at any one time as we must protect our staff and patients in line with the Government advice, and we also predict staff to be self isolating at times. This may mean that telephone wait times are a little longer than usual. We trust you will be understanding of this. We are still here to help you when you need us, we just ask for your patience. Thank you
