No appointment is required so you can just turn up on the day. 

The next clinic is on Saturday 20th October 2018, and is intended for all eligible patients. These are patients that are under 65 and 'at risk' as well as patients over 65. No appointment is needed so please just turn up on the day

We also have a clinic on Tuesday 13th November 2018, and again this in intended for all patients, both under 65 and at risk as well as the over 65s. No appointments required. We will also text or write to all eligible patients nearer the time but respectfully ask that you do not turn up for the flu vaccination if you are not eligible as we have limited supplies.

All patients that have an appointment with the GP or a Nurse, and are eligible, should ask for their flu jab in the consultation to avoid you having to come back to attend the flu clinic.

Changes to products available on prescription in Calderdale

NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has recommended that GPs stop routinely prescribing a number of lower value products and branded medicines.

The NHS in Calderdale could save around £300,000 each year by stopping prescribing these self-care treatments, which are widely available to buy, without a prescription, from pharmacies and supermarkets.

These include:

  • Baby milks
  • Infant colic products
  • Vitamin supplements 
  • Emollients (moisturisers) for minor dry skin conditions
  • Cosmetic products, including eflornithine for facial hair
  • Antifungal nail paints
  • Sunscreen products

Making It Easier For You Telephone Consultations

We know it can be difficult to get an appointment at your GP surgery.

Part of the reason for this is that many face-to-face appointments are used for problems that could be better dealt with over the telephone.

Similarly, patients who just want to discuss something over the telephone have to queue up for a face to face appointment because they have difficulty getting a telephone consultation.

In response to this, we are introducing a telephone consultation service to help you get the appointment you need much easier.

The surgery will now be offering structured telephone consultations, Monday to Friday mornings. When you call the surgery, if you are offered this service, your details will be taken and a GP will call you back at the pre-booked time. This GP has full access to your records and Beechwood administration services and can organize whatever is needed just as your usual GP does.

If you need to be seen by a GP, the GP you speak to will book you a face-face appointment with a GP at Beechwood Medical Centre later that same day or in a couple of days time if it is not urgent.

Children under 2 and patients with visual conditions such as rashes will be directly booked into a face-to-face appointment, unless you specifically request a telephone call.

If you have any queries about the telephone service, please contact reception.

Thank you for your patience at this time of change, and we hope you find new the new service beneficial.

Important Travel Advice for Patients
Please note that patients travelling to some foreign countries will experience difficulties in obtaining the Hepatitis A Vaccine for administering on the NHS. This is due to a National Shortage and Beechwood Medical Centre is doing all it can to obtain extra vaccines but cannot guarantee the availability. Patients may wish to try and obtain this vaccine privately but the National Shortage is also affecting these services. If you are traveling to a country where this vaccine is recommended then please speak to the Practice Nurse or click this link to check the NATHNAC Travel Advice website https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/
