Noticeboard

Our Vaccination Teams are working tirelessly to ensure patients are vaccinated as swiftly as possible. We work with 7 other practices as Swift Primary Care Network (PCN) offering vaccinations from our Vaccination Site at Knowle West Healthy Living Centre. We also work with our neighbouring PCN, Bridgeview Medical, to ensure our patients have the best possible opportunities for vaccination.  We are making great progress. Most of our patients over 75 have had a first vaccination and we are now moving into the next groups (over 70's & clinically extremely vulnerable). 


We will contact you as soon as we can offer you a vaccination and, on occasion, you may hear directly from Bridgeview Medical.        


We are not linked with the NHS letters you may receive offering vaccinations at Ashton Gate but of course you should make the arrangements that best work for you.   


                                                                                                     

FREE NHS HEALTH CHECKS

Free NHS Health ChecksYou will be offered a free NHS check at the practice, if eligible, to help  prevent heart disease, strokes, diabetes and kidney disease.

Are you eligible?

If you are between the ages of 40 and 74 and are not already being treated at the practice for heart or kidney disease, stroke, diabetes, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, transient ischaemic attack (TIA), high cholesterol or peripheral arterial disease, you will be eligible for a 30 minute health check with our Healthcare Assistant who has been specifically recruited to do this.

Your health check will:

  • find out of you are at risk from some health problems
  • tell you how to look after your health
  • help you change things in your life to make your health better in the future.

To find out more either:

  • visit www.nhs.uk/nhshealthcheck
  • call the NHS Health Check helpline on 0845 850 9850 (calls cost no more than 5p a minute from a BT landline.  However, may cost more if you use a mobile phone or company phone that is not BT)
  • pick up a leaflet from the Practice

How will we contact you if eligible?

We are permitted by NHS England to offer healthcare checks to up to 20% of the eligible patients each year so invitations will be sent out on a phased basis.
