Red Horse Health Care

Message to our Patients from the new Partnership team at the Vale of the Red Horse Health Care Centres. 

Dear Patients

The new partnership has made some changes to the way we deliver care to our patients and would like to make you aware.

Improved continuity of care and reduction in the use of Locums

With the increase in the number of staff from August 2015 onwards we then hope to use less or avoid the use of locum GPs and this in turn will improve the service and continuity of care delivered to our patients. 

New service specific baby and toddler emergency clinic 9:30am at Kineton Surgery everyday.

From August onwards we will be running a special 5 minute sit and wait clinic at 9.30am every day at Kineton Surgery for babies and toddlers under the age of 5.

The only thing that we request is that parents use this 9.30 clinic for emergencies only and if you do need a routine appointment then speak to Reception who will try to facilitate this.

New Service - Increase late opening of dispensary on Tuesday evening.

From August onwards, in addition to running a late surgery every Tuesday, the Dispensary will be open until 8.00pm to allow patients and relatives to collect and order drugs.  We are also open for our commuter clinic sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6.30pm 8.00pm please be aware that there is no dispensary service at these sessions.

Flu Clinics

We have a number of clinics throughout October for patients who are eligible for a flu jab.  Please contact the reception team to book an appointment.

Over 75 Checks

We are offering an enhanced clinical review for our over 75 patients with Yvonne Wallsgrove our Lead Nurse.  All patients over the age of 75 are eligible for a health check so please contact the reception to book.

Respiratory Awareness Session

On the 31st October 2015 we will be running a respiratory illness awareness session at Tysoe Surgery.  The session will be facilitated by our Respiratory Specialist Nurse Wendy Nursall.  At the session we will provide information and help in Asthma and COPD management.  Please see the posters in surgeries for more information.

Guideposts

Guideposts the Carers information organisation now runs information sessions at the surgery every month.  Please see our website and Facebook Page for the date of the next session.
