Welcome to Woodland Road Surgery Online
What We Do...
Woodland Road Surgery is a very traditional general practice that focuses on providing care for all of our patients in a way that is easy to access and provides continuity of care by a close-knit team of doctors, nurses and support staff. We offer several walk in sessions every week, these sessions are referred to as Open Surgery and ensure that patients can be seen on any day that they need to be when the surgery is open - NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY. Open Surgery operates between 8.30am and 10am every week day morning and between 4pm and 6pm every afternoon with the exception of Wednesday which is when we run our post-natal, child health and ante-natal clinics.
We are aware that some patients do prefer being able to pre-book appointments and this is something we offer whenever we can, however you may have to wait a few weeks until you can secure an appointment with your preferred GP. Please remember that all of our GP's take turns in covering Open Surgery so you can still be seen if you have a problem that cannot wait.
In March 2016 we carried out a survey asking our patients to choose between keeping Open Surgery and changing to an appointment only basis. We cannot maintain Open Surgery and increase the number of bookable appointments due to financial constraints.
Out of 150 patients who completed the survey 147 patients said they wanted to keep Open Surgery, so this is what we will do.
FLU VACCINATION CLINICS 2017
The surgery has started our flu vaccination campaign 2017-18. Following the success of our recent Saturday drop in clinic we have scheduled the next clinics for during the week to cover those who cannot attend at the weekend -
Wednesday 18th October 2017 between 10.15am and 11.30am (drop in - no appointment necessary)
Thursday 19th October 2017 between 4pm and 6.30pm (drop in - no appointment necessary)
There are also appointments available at other times if you are not able to come to one of the drop in clinics.
It is essential that all of our 'at risk' patients get their vaccine as early as possible in the campaign to ensure they are protected against the currently prevalent strains of flu.
Eligible groups include:
* pregnant women
* anyone who is a full-time carer of another person
* anyone with a long-term condition including diabetes, asthma, kidney disease, heart or chest problems
* people undergoing medical treatment who may have a compromised immune system
