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.

Appointments

calendar_penWe strive to balance appointments that can be booked in advance and appointments available for urgent and unforeseen problems that arise on the day.  

We review this balance regularly.  We encourage patients to book in advance wherever possible and not to rely on ringing back to get an appointment released on the day.

In a Consultation, the GP will:

  • listen and examine you as appropriate,
  • identify possible diagnosis in order of risk,
  • order laboratory tests if required
  • provide advice, prescribe medication and/or refer you to hospital clinics and other health services if appropriate.

GP consultations are booked in 10 minute slots. If you have more than one problem, or if more than one family member needs to see a doctor, please book more than 1 appointment.

Extra Appointments

Any overflow of patients with urgent and unforeseen problems can be seen in ‘extra’ appointments at 11:50am or at 17:40pm,  Monday to Friday.  These are 5 minute appointments and you may not be able to see your choice of GP but we never turn patients with urgent problems away.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
