PATIENT SURVEY 2014
Please take a few minutes to complete the Linthorpe Surgery 2014 patient survey . The questions have been designed with the help of our patient participation group and your answers will help us to continue to improve our services.
You can now book an appointment for your annual flu vaccination. If you are aged 65 years or over, are pregnant, are a carer or have a long term condition you are eligilble for a free flu vaccination.
This year we will also be vaccinating children born between 2nd September 2009 and 1st September 2011.

THE LINTHORPE SURGERY GOES MOBILE
A new, mobile friendly version of our surgery website is now available. This allows you to access our site conveniently on your smartphone or other mobile device.
You can now also download the new Systmonline App for iphones, ipads and other Apple devices to make booking appointments and ordering repeat prescriptions easier. If you have not already registered for a username and password just call at the surgery with your I.D. and the receptionist will issue you with the necessary information.
The Care Data programme is being introduced by the Department of Health to give a better understanding, locally and nationally, of the most important health needs and the quality of the treatment and care provided by local health services. It involves information, such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, being used to help future planning. For more inormation click here. If you do not want your information shared outside the practice just inform us and we will make a note of this in your medical records.
This year the government have introduced a shingles vaccination programme for patients aged 70 and those aged 79 on the 1st September 2013 (i.e. born between 02/09/1942 - 01/09/1943 or 02/09/1933 - 01/09/1934). The vaccination will be given at the same time as the annual flu vaccination.
You can now book, cancel and view your future appointments online. To register for our online services please call in at the surgery with your I.D. and our receptionists will be able to issue you with a username and password. Click the link below to log in and book your appointment.
We will now be sending appointment confirmations and reminders to patients by text. Hopefully this will reduce the number of patients who do not attend for their appointment and therefore free up appointments for other patients. If you do not want to receive text messages please inform the receptionist.
Remember if you cannot attend for your appointment you can cancel it online (if you are registered to use our online services), or by ringing the surgery and selecting option 2 to leave a message to cancel the appointment. You can do this even when the surgery is closed.
