FLUATHON - Sat October 13 at THAXTED DAY CENTRE  

Appointments now available for our annual Fluathon.  Because of building work, Fluathon is in Thaxted Day Centre this year. You are eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine if you are 65 or over, pregnant, a carer, or have a long-term condition.  

Half-Marathon Raising Funds to Equip our new Extension.   A patient is running the Windsor marathon for us in September. To donate via Just Giving, click here

Our thanks to rrt, whose burger lunch raised £2,720 and to the residents of Vicarage Mead who raised £622 with their coffee morning.

Building Work Commences 17 September.   The first few weeks are likely to be noisy.

We will do what we can to use the quieter rooms, but please bear with us.  We can offer quieter evening and weekend appointments at Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow.

Thaxted Surgery has again been rated best in West Essex - 2018 National Patient Survey

Thank you for your continued support and please bear with us through a difficult period of building.

At Thaxted Surgery we are actively engaged in Research. This keeps us up to date with new and emerging thinking, and sometimes allows us to offer treatments that otherwise might not be available. We only involve individual patients in research after a careful process to ensure the individual fully understands the implications and gives informed consent.

We work in partnership with The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), which is the research arm of the NHS. It's role is to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research. The Primary Care Research Network (PCRN) helps GP's and community services to be involved in research.

We are currently working with Barts Health NHS Trust in forming an Uttlesford Research Hub and Spoke Model in our area. We are negotiating with Newport surgery to join our Hub, and hope to grow even further in the future.

 

"Patients are at the centre of our work. We ensure that the research we support is relevant to and benefit those who use primary care services by involving patients and the public at all stages of the research process."

From NIHR website.

Rapsid, Diabetes Help and Dare (Diabetes), Clarify (Heart Disease), Perform (Depressive Disorders), 3C and Target (Cough studies), and DPIM (Bipolar disorders) and Internet Doctor (On-line assessment and advise regarding respiratory tract infections), Pathway (Hypertension), Living with Breathlessness (COPD), PMR (Polymyalgia Rheumatica), AFFIRM (asthma), Barack D (Chronic Kidney Disease), TIME (Hypertension), Rhinitis, Late onset Depression, HELP Diabetes, HEAT (H Pylori), FAST (asthma), AFFIRM (asthma), NSRS (Feno),  ELIOT, CLASP (Parkinsons), TAMSIN, SPRINT and RIVER.
