Welcome to Atherstone Surgery
Healthwatch Warwickshire Surgery Report
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.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
The building complies with all aspects of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). For more information please contact the practice.
Please note all patients have been allocated an accountable GP. You can continue to see other clinicians however you should be aware of your registered GP's name. If you are unsure of this information please contact the surgery and we will happily inform you.
NOTICE TO PATIENTS ELIGIBLE FOR COVID-19 VACCINATION
VACCINATIONS ARE BY INVITATION & CONFIRMED APPOINTMENTS ONLY AND WILL BE GIVEN AT ATHERSTONE SURGERY, RATCLIFFE ROAD, ATHERSTONE, CV9 1EU
Eligible patients will be invited in priority order as per NHSE guidance starting with patients who are 80 years of age and over. You will be given a second appointment when you have received the first dose as the vaccine must be given by two injections a minimum of 21 days apart. Patients must attend both appointments for the vaccine to be effective. Patients cannot attend the second appointment if they did not attend the first appointment as we will not be able to vaccinate.
It is important to note that patients who do not ACCEPT THE FIRST APPOINTMENT cannot attend the hub within 21 days for the second injection. Patients must advise via the designated email address or call centre number if they cannot make the first appointment date / time.
We can only administer vaccines at the proposed site. (We are unable to provide vaccines at patients home as the vaccine cannot be moved off the site. A separate home visiting service is being planned for 2021). All care home and residential home patients will also be vaccinated by a separate service.
PATIENTS MUST BRING THE LETTER WITH THEM TO THE BOOKED APPOINTMENT AND COMPLETE THE SAFETY INFORMATION PRIOR TO ATTENDING.
On 23rd December 2020 Atherstone Surgery, Chancery Lane Surgery, Spring Hill Medical Centre and Station Street Surgery held our first Covid Vaccination Clinic. We proudly vaccinated over 1100 patients aged over 80 years old. Our first patient to have the vaccine was Mrs Barbara Astle, pictured below, who was extremely grateful to get the vaccine and thanked the staff involved.
We are now looking forward to received news of our next delivery.
