'FLU CAMPAIGN 2016'
We are currently running catch-up clinics for patients who still wish to have their flu vaccinations. If you are in an 'at risk' group and still wish to have your vaccination, please make an appointment as soon as possible as our stock of the vaccine is running low. Please ring reception to make an appointment.
- Flu vaccinations are for 'at risk' patients only
- All 'at risk' patients will be sent an invitation via text message or letter
- Please inform the surgery if you are allergic to eggs
- Patients who are eligible for Pneumococcal and/or Shingles will be offered these when they attend for their flu vaccination.
Albion Medical Practice
The doctors and staff at Albion Medical Practice in Ashton-under-Lyne are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
The Albion Medical Practice has full access for disabled persons. Toilet facilities are also available.
EXTENDED HOURS ACCESS
We regret to inform you that we will no longer be offering Extended Hours Access from the 30th June 2016. This has been a difficult decision as we know this service was popular with patients who work. However, due to funding reductions it is no longer financially viable to continue running the service and for this we apologise.
There are other alternatives for working patients - The walk in centre at Ashton Primary Care Centre is open from 8am - 8pm. We will also be able to access appointments for 7 Day GP Access which has appointments available at the weekends and upto 8pm on weekdays. These appointments can be booked through us once our new computer system (EMIS Web) has been configured to do so.
We already have a high ratio of appointments outside of the 9am-5pm bracket and we have put extra Practice Nurse and Nurse Practitioner appointments on between 5pm and 6pm.
PATIENT ONLINE SERVICES
Due to our computer migration, all patients who use the on-line services will have to re-register from the 20th June 2016. If you wish to continue using the on-line services you need to complete a registration form. Please ask for one from reception. You may need to bring in ID to verify your identity (passport/driving licence/utility bill).
