Noticeboard

BOOST DAY is this Thursday 2nd December and is a day where you’ll see a mass media campaign takeover promoting the uptake of vaccines ahead of the festive season and there are a range of resources to support this on the Campaign Resource Centre (CRC). BOOST DAY will drive mass awareness and momentum around the importance of boosting your immunity this winter.

Messaging encourages those eligible to book their vaccines as soon as possible so we can all enjoy the festivities safely with our loved ones. This includes both flu and COVID-19 boosters, the evergreen offer for anyone still to get their 1st and 2nd doses of COVID-19 vaccine and second doses for 16-17-year olds. We welcome you all to get involved and use the BOOST DAY materials to make this day as big a success as possible.

BOOK YOUR FLU VACCINATION APPOINTMENT NOW

The GP’s at The Haven seek to encourage every eligible patient to have their free flu jab this year. Perhaps you are delaying booking an appointment until more is known about the Covid-19 booster programme, or you are hesitant because there were very few cases of flu last year and you feel fit and well at the moment? You may be waiting for more information from the government or from other reputable sources? In any case, our sincere advice to our patients ,is that you should pre-book your flu vaccination appointment as soon as possible.

Our receptionists are waiting to hear from you.

Freedom of Information Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 aims to produce a culture of openness in public bodies, by providing members of the public with the right to access information held. The main purpose behind this is to show how public money is being used.

The Practice has developed a publication scheme. It is a guide to information, routinely published and gives indication of information intended to be published. The publication scheme describes the form in which the information is published and any fees that will be charged. A request can be made from information listed in this publication scheme.

The Practice’s publication scheme follows the model scheme for GP Practices approved by the Information Commissioners Office.

Here is our Freedom of Information Act Leaflet

Violence and Aggression 

The Practice in line with NHS Guidelines  operates a Zero tolerance Policy with regard to violence and abuse and the Practice has the right to remove violent Patients from the list with immediate effect in order to safeguard Practice staff, Patients and other persons.

Violence in this context includes actual or threatened physical violence or verbal abuse which leads to fear for a person’s safety. In this situation we will notify the Patient in writing of their removal from the list and record in the Patient’s medical records the fact of the removal and the circumstances leading to it.

Zero Tolerance 

As a Practice we do not tolerate any abuse or violence towards our staff or patients see our Zero Tolerance policy and Poster .
