Have your say on plans to develop an Urgent Treatment Centre in North Lincolnshire

Between January 9th and February 3rd 2019, North Lincolnshire CCG is gathering views from patients and members of the public to help shape the new service.

Cancer Screening Programmes
Screening is a method of finding out if people are at higher risk of a health problem, so that early treatment can be offered. There are three types of cancer screenings offered in the UK; Bowel Cancer Screening, Breast Screening and Cervical Screening.

Support your local GP Practice – Have your flu jab with us!
The flu vaccine is the best protection we have against an unpredictable virus that can cause unpleasant illness in children and severe illness and death among at-risk groups, including older people, pregnant women and those with an underlying medical health condition.
Having the flu vaccination can reduce doctors’ visits, missed work or school and prevent flu-related hospitalisations. It is important that if you have a chronic illness such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, you are pregnant or over 65 years of age that you have this done.
We will be offering the Fluad® vaccination to all patients aged 65 (on or before 31st March 2019), as this has shown to be the most effective for this age group.
For all patients who are not in this age group, and are eligible, we will be offering the Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccination® which offers protection from four different strains of flu: Michigan, Singapore, Colorado and Phuket; this is based on the World Health Organisation’s recommendation for the 2018/19 flu season.
The practice has dedicated flu clinics running regularly during the day and some evening sessions have been planned too. We still have a large number of patients that have not yet been immunised so we would encourage any patients falling into any of the above categories, to contact the surgery on 01724 877744 or 01724 742300 to book your flu vaccine.
Our Patient Survey Results are in!

About our practice
West Common Lane Teaching Practice was first opened in July 1991 by Dr Chris Hall and Dr Andy Lee. Since then there have been many changes with the most notable one happening in February 2015 when the surgery took over the care of Dr Balasanthiran’s patients.
Dr Chris Hall has since retired but Dr Andy Lee is still a partner with Dr Francisco Terreros, Dr Kyle Hall and Dr Laura Thomas who became a partner on April 1st 2018.
Our list size is currently in excess of 8000 patients and continues to grow.
The practice is in the process of switching patients whose medical condition is described as stable by the GP to repeat dispensing.
Repeat dispensing is a new way of getting your medicines without having to ask the GP for a prescription each time.
If you would like more information, please speak to a receptionist or click here.
