Cold weather alert

Date: 
Tuesday, January 27, 2015

The Met Office has issued a cold weather alert on Friday 16th January 2015 for the next few days. This means that they expect a period of severe cold and icy conditions. This will affect some people more than others, especially the frail, elderly, young children and those with significant long term problems.

Public Health England offers the following advice:

Make sure that you stay warm. If going outside make sure you dress appropriately. If indoors, make sure that you keep your heating to the right temperature; heating your home to at least 18°C in winter poses minimal risk to your health when you are wearing suitable clothing . If there is anyone you know who might be at special risk, for example, an older person living on their own, make sure they know what to do to stay warm and are well stocked with food and medications.  If you are worried about your health or that of somebody you know, ring NHS 111

Afternoon Closure for Training CANCELLED. Practice open as usual

Date: 
Tuesday, January 20, 2015

In view of the increased pressure on the health service at this time, we will be open as normal.

Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group decided that the training afternoon should be cancelled to allow GPs to offer more appointments given the pressure for appointments that practices and hospitals are currently under; a decision we fully support. As a result we have been able to release a significant number of additional appointments.

Therefore the practice will be open until 6pm as usual.
