Welcome to Burbage Surgery Online. This surgery website is used to present all our patients with up to date news and information about our practice.

We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you. 


Spring is coming!!!

We are all looking forward to returning to a more normal life as the days get longer and we get used to living with Covid.

Here at the Surgery our doors continue to be open, so please get in contact if we can help or support you in any way with your ongoing physical or mental health; whether that is in person or over the phone. 

You have all been brilliant over the last 2 years, embracing the technology; using our online services and the NHS App to book your appointments, order medication, and contact us with queries.  We are so grateful for your support with this which has enabled us to keep working as efficiently as we can and provide the best possible service for you all.

COVID BOOSTERS

We are now holding booster clinics here at the surgery for those over 75. The next ones are in the afternoon on the 10th and 24th May. If you have not already had or booked your booster, please contact us for an appointment. Please note we cannot vaccinate you any sooner than 6 months after your last jab so please check the dates. We will also be sending text reminders with a link to book this online... Please ensure you wear a mask when attending... 😷 We do have visors in the porch for anyone unable wear a mask.There will be a further one towards the end of June for those who were vaccinated in December. Hopefully we can then all have a jab free summer before it all kickstarts again in the autumn!!! 😎

 You are of course welcome to book your booster elsewhere, by calling 119 or booking online at 

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/

Please do not ring us for information, we will update this website and our Facebook page when we have more details.

With the holiday season on its way, don’t forget that you will need proof of your vaccinations if you wish to travel abroad. This is available on the NHS app or you can get a paper copy by calling 119. Remember to allow enough time to ensure you have done this before you travel. We are unable to give you a letter that will be adequate at international borders, so please plan ahead….

                                                      https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/vaccination-status-for-travelling-abroad/

Prescriptions

PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST 3 FULL WORKING DAYS BETWEEN ORDERING AND COLLECTING YOUR REPEAT MEDICATION.

WE RECOMMEND YOU KEEP 2 WEEKS OF MEDICATION IN STOCK AT HOME SO YOU ARE LESS LIKELY TO RUN OUT

When ordering repeat prescriptions online, please be aware that we cannot respond to any queries made in the comments box.  Should there be a problem with your medicine request, a staff member will contact you directly. Any medicine reviews that require an appointment with the GP, nurse, or Clinical Pharmacist will be instigated by the surgery.  Please ignore any "review" requests that appear when ordering your medicines online - thank you.

DoctorLink

Burbage Surgery would like to invite you to join DoctorLink. We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line. Registration is simple and you can register here:

https://app.doctorlink.com/burbagesurgery/register

For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink. The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem. The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care. If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required, you simply click on the request appointment link. Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker). The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.

You can even download the App:

GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in the UK on 25th May 2018. Under GDPR GP surgeries are ‘data controllers’, registered with Information Commissioners Office (ICO), who oversee data protection law in the UK. GDPR ‘right to be informed’ encompasses the obligation to provide fair processing and transparent use personal data.

In practice this means:

  • Telling you about the information we collect, how we use it and who we share it with.
  • Assuring you that your data will be safe, kept confidential and used appropriately
  • Enabling you to opt out of sharing your data at any time
  • Making you aware that you have the right to access your data

Named Accountable GP

Practices throughout the UK are contractually obliged to inform all patients of who their accountable GP is.

We have divided our patient list between Dr Rebecca Style and Dr James Downie, who are the 2 Partners here. As a general rule, patients in the first half of the alphabet have been allocated to Dr Downie and those in the second half to Dr Style. For administrative purposes these will be the accountable GPs. As before, however, everyone is free to see whichever GP they wish,

If you have any questions, or would like to change your accountable GP please don’t hesitate to ask at Reception
