Welcome to Dinnington Group Practice

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

Influenza Vaccination Programme - 2019 / 2020 

Influenza Vaccination Programme – 2019/2020

NHS England has again recommended that we offer TWO different vaccinations this year to eligible patients over the age of 18.

-Quadrivalent vaccine (QIV) - For patients aged 18 – Under 65

-Adjuvanted trivalent vaccine (aTIV) - For patients aged 65 and over

There is a national supply problem for the under 65 vaccine. That is why we have arranged the clinic for patient under 65 later on 23 November 2019 9am – 12pm at Anston surgery for patients from all sites.

We should have a limited number of vaccines available from 14 October 2019. So we advise that you contact the surgery to book an appointment after that date for your flu vaccine if you cannot attend on 23 November 2019 or would like the vaccine sooner.

Patients 65 and over are invited to attend the flu clinic at Dinnington & Anston on Saturday 5 October 2019 between 9am – 4pm.

Woodsetts patients of all ages are invited to the clinic on Wednesday 16th October 2019 between 2.00pm – 5.30pm

PLEASE NOTE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR AN INFLUENZA VACCINATION A VACCINE HAS BEEN ORDERED AND RESERVED FOR YOU. INVITATION WILL BE SENT TO ELIGIBLE PATIENTS VIA TEXT MESSAGE IF YOU HAVE A MOBILE PHONE AND BY LETTER IF NOT.

We strongly advise patients who receive a text message to visit the surgery prior to the clinic to collect their letter as this will to cut down on waiting times on the day.

To update our records we would like all patients to complete a questionnaire which can be downloaded from the website or obtained from the surgery

TEXT MESSAGE REMINDERS

As from 1st February 2017, if we have your mobile phone number on our records we will send you a text reminder of your upcoming appointment. From this message you will also be able to cancel your appointment by replying to the text.

For more details please look at the attatchment that can be found in our appointment section.

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

From April 2017 the way you order your repeat prescription is changing. 

From April your pharmacy will no longer be able to order your repeat prescriptions on your behalf.  You (or your carer/nominated family member/friend) will have to order your repeat prescription directly from the GP Practice

You can still have repeat prescription requests sent to a pharmacy of your choice and your pharmacy will still be able to deliver prescriptions to your home if required.  Pharmacies can continue to collect prescriptions from the GP Practice.

We are working with NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group to ensure the changes have minimal impact on our patients.  There are a number of ways you can order your repeat prescription:

1.  Complete the tear off slip to the right of your repeat prescription and hand it to reception at your registered practice.

2.  Online (please remember you will need to sign up at Reception before using online services)

3.  Post your repeat prescription request to your registered practice.  

If you have any concerns regarding this change please speak to a Receptionist.

Below is a leaflet with additional information.
