Shingles Vaccine launch- on going vaccination

The Department of Health have advised that they will begin offering the shingles vaccine on a phased introduction. At Maypole Health Centre, we understand this to mean that they will be introducing the vaccine to certain age groups between the ages of 70 and 79 yrs ( please note only patients age 70 and 79 years old fit the criteria at present).

We anticipate its introduction to be around Autumn ( flu season) and so we would anticipate inviting those who will fall into this criteria in at the same time as they would usually expect to attend for their seasonal flu vaccine making it doubly important to watch out for the flu clinic dates. Please be advised, we will be unable to vaccinate patients who do not fall into the age groups defined by the Department of Health.


Flu Jab: Do not miss it

If you are aged 65 or over, carers or are in an “at risk” group eg diabetes, heart disease , COPD, etc..or are pregnant ,please book your flu injection between end of September and March.

How we use your medical records

Important information for patients

This practice handles medical records in-line with the laws on data protection and confidentiality.

We share medical records with those who are involved in providing you with care and treatment.

In some circumstances we also share medical records for medical research, for example to find out more about why people get ill.

We share information when the law requires us to do so, for example, to prevent infectious diseases from spreading, or to check that the care being provided to you is safe.

You have the right to be given a copy of your medical record.

You have the right to object to your medical records being shared with those who provide you with care.

You have the right to object to your information being used for medical research and to plan health services.

Wasted appointment

Number of patients who did not keep their appointments

The number of patients who did not keep their appointments last month was 97  and this is equivalent to over 8 clinics. Please be considerate for other patients who need the  appointments if you are unable to keep them. 

Thank you for your cooperation and being considerate for fellow patients



Did Not Attend Policy









Due to the number of patients failing to attend for their appointment this may mean that you may not be able to see the Doctor / Nurse Practitioner / Phlebotomist on the day that you wish to.


In an attempt to try and resolve this, the practice has developed the following policy.



·       If you fail to attend appointments without informing us we will write to you asking if you could inform the practice if you are unable to attend your appointment.



·       If you fail to attend on 3 occasions without informing us throughout a 12 month period for appointments you may be removed from the practice list and asked to find an alternative GP practice.
