Strep A - information for patients
We are currently experiencing a huge demand for primary care appointments so are having to prioritise those that are most urgent. Please be patient if you are having to wait for an appointment. Parents and carers who have concerns about Strep A are encouraged to visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/strep-a/ in the first instance, where you will learn more about symptoms to look for, when to seek medical help and what to do in an emergency.
My Planned Care - NHS
My Planned Care gives you advice and support while you wait and helps you to prepare for your hospital consultation, treatment, or surgery. This includes giving you information about waiting times at your hospital and other supporting and local services while you wait.www.myplannedcare.nhs.uk

Our Improved Access Booking Line for Patients has changed.
Working in partnership with GPs across South Worcestershire, we now offer Improved Access telephone appointments at evenings and weekends. These appointments are offered by practices across the county, so you may speak to a GP, nurse or other clinician from a different practice—but we hope this service will allow you to access primary care outside of our regular opening hours.
You can pre-book your appointment by calling our regular appointment line during our opening hours. Alternatively, you can call 01905 969864 to book an appointment from 8am-6:30pm Monday to Friday, and 9am-1pm Saturday and Sunday.
We’re happy to support the launch of the new health and wellbeing survey today!
Help us build up a picture of what wellbeing means to people of all ages from across all areas of Worcestershire and help make a difference.

More people will soon be eligible for boosters - but please wait to be called forward for yours.
The JCVI have announced that boosters will be offered to patients aged 18 and over, three months from their second jab. Your local NHS providers are working as fast as they can to prepare for this change - and you can help by waiting to be called forward.
Boosters will be offered at vaccination centres and by local Primary Care Networks – but please don’t contact your GP to book, as when you’re eligible, the NHS will let you know.
In the meantime, you view the latest information on eligibility at nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19.
Abbey Medical Practice is aware of the announcement on 20th November 2020 by the Department for Health and Social Care that anyone aged 50-64 has now been added to the eligible cohorts for this year's flu vaccine. We are now working to order additional vaccine supplies and to plan for more flu clinics in December. We ask that patients refrain from ringing the practice with enquiries on this and we will communicate the new arrangements for flu clinics in the near future.
