Hepatitis A vaccination
There is currently a national shortage of Hep A vaccines which is affecting all GP surgeries and travel clinics.
This is to announce that the practice intends to bid for the proposed new Health Facility at the new Beaulieu Park development. Taking this step would be a logical course of action since much of the development site is within the Little Waltham / Great Notley area of responsibility. The intention would be for this site to run as a branch surgery in addition to the two existing sites. The provision of a third site would provide the practice with badly needed space to expand for a rapidly growing population. There is no scope for expansion at Notley Green and the proposed extension at Little Waltham has stalled as a consequence of planning permission problems. Your PPG committee fully supports the proposal and you the patients will be given the opportunity over the coming weeks to express your views via the surgery using comment boxes at each site.
Little Waltham Parking
Please use the additional car parking at Little Waltham Memorial Hall, if the surgery car park is full.
The surgery will no longer be offering ear syringing service, this is due to on-going issues with the machines and funding cuts. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Every patient has a named allocated GP however patients may see whichever GP they prefer. If you wish to know who your named GP is, please ask at reception.
