Welcome to The Caxton Surgery Online
The Caxton Surgery in Oswestry provides the highest quality healthcare to patients. Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and this surgery website will help us to keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
Please remember to get your flu jab this year if you are 65 and over or in one of the at risk groups which include Asthma, COPD, Stroke, Heart Disease, Diabetes and if you are a carer for someone. If you are unsure whether you are eligible or not please ask.
Our first flu clinic will be on:
Saturday 3rd October 2015, 8.05am - 10.55am
We will announce more dates in the next few weeks.
DEMENTIA ACTION ALLIANCE
The practice has become a member of the national Dementia Action Alliance which is a movement with one simple aim: to bring about a society-wide response to dementia. It encourages and supports communities and organisations across England to take practical actions to enable people to live well with dementia and reduce the risk of costly crisis intervention.
By working alongside our Patient Participation Group we have created an action plan to try to meet the above aim, please follow the link below to see our plan:
MENINGITIS ACWY VACCINE
A new vaccination programme has begun for all patients born between the 1/9/1996 and 31/8/1997. A new vaccine to protect against Meningitis and Septicaemia is available and we would urge all patients in this age group to contact the practice to make an appointment with a nurse for it, we will also be sending all patients in this age group a letter to give them more information about the vaccine and why its so important.
This vaccine is also available to patients up to the age of 25 who are going to university for the 1st time this autumn, it is only available if you are going to university for your 1st year but if you are unsure if you can have it please contact the practice.
EPS 2 - ELECTRONIC PRESCRIBING
Tuesday August 4th will be our go live date for electronic prescribing which means that if the patient wishes, their prescription can be sent electronically to a nominated pharmacy of their choice. If you haven't already please contact the pharmacy you would like to nominate.
As part of our ongoing drive to reduce DNA rates to help improve patient access to our services we have created a dedicated number that people can text to cancel an appointment.
The number is: 07931 642975
It can be found on your appointments card and all you need to do is send a text message with your date of birth and details of the appointment you would like to cancel.
Please note this number is for text message cancellations only and calls or other queries will not be answered.
