Noticeboard

This week we are celebrating Occupational Therapy Week. 

This year’s focus is on Social Justice and Health Equity.  Liz Smith and Vicky Jones joined Leek and Biddulph Primary Care Network at the beginning of 2021 to set up a new O.T service specifically for the 5 GP practices within the PCN.  This new service has been set up to provide early intervention support, this is for patient who have been newly diagnosed or are struggling with new difficulties both for physical and mental health needs. Current services do not provide this support and in celebration of O.T week our new service is providing access for those who previously do not meet the criteria of existing services.  Please see attached leaflet for further information regarding our service.

 

Further information with regards to O.T week is available from website www.rcot.co.uk 

 

Covid Clinics at Moorland Medical Centre

We have now started our Covid-19 Booster clinics, you will be sent a text message or contacted via the phone if you are eligible for a booster.  If you have not heard anything yet you can email moorland.med@nhs.net and we will check this for you.  We are also looking for volunteers to help with the clinics so if you are available please either email Bas Pickering PPG Secretary on  bas.pickering@yahoo.com or moorland.med@nhs.net and we will be in touch with you.

Flu Vaccination

Due to a national delay in the delivery of the Flu Vaccination the surgery is currently unable to book any further appointments.  We apologise for the inconvenience that this may cause but as soon as we receive a further delivery of the vaccine we will send notifications out to our eligible patients to book an appointment.

Please let the surgery know if you have changed your contact details, e.g. mobile number or home address.
