3 Put patients first: Support our patient petition to back general practice
On line petition can be signed at http://www.rcgp.org.uk/campaign-home/get-involved/petition.aspx or sign our book at reception.
We would ask you to please back the general practice campaign which is calling for general practice to be given the resources it needs to provide excellent patient care.
The campaign is run by RCGP and the National Association for Patient Participation and is building up huge momentum.
By signing the petition in our reception you will send a message to the politicians:
That the budget for general practice must be increased from 8.39% of the NHS to 11% by 2017
Otherwise general practice will simply not be able to provide patients with the level of care they deserve.
Check out the www.putpatientsfirst.rcgp.org.uk website.

June 2014 - Telephone Update
4 additional lines have been added to our telephone system following patient feedback and comments.
You can now also get through to our general enquiries line for results on tests, hospital letters etc from 9.30 am
instead of 11.30 am. We do hope these changes will facilitate better access for all our patients.
AUTUMN 2014 - PHASE 2 OF THE CHILDREN’S SEASONAL FLU VACCINATION PROGRAMME
All pre-school children aged two years or more on the 1 September 2014 (D.O.B. range 02/07/2010 – 01/09/12) should be offered vaccination by their GPin 2014/15 campaign. All children (including those in a clinical risk group) attending primary school (P1 to P7 inclusive) from the 1 September 2014 will be offered vaccination by the school health team.
Bowel Cancer Screening programme
The age range for Northern Ireland Bowel Cancer Screening programme will be extended from 1 April 2014 to include all eligible individuals aged 60-74.
The majority of the population covered by the new upper age range will have previously been invited to take part in screening and so should have some understanding of the programme and how it operates. Only a small number of people aged 74 will be invited to participate for the first time. If you have questions or concerns about your invite check out www.cancerscreening.hscni.net or call the freephone helpline number (Telephone 0800 015 2514). Individuals will continue to be invited for screening using the existing systems and processes.
