Dr Seyan's Retirement
Dr Seyan will be retiring on Thursday 25th June 2015, after 37 years at Simpson House. We know that many patients are very fond of Dr Seyan and would like the opportunity to say goodbye to him. We will therefore be having an event for patients to come and express their well wishes on Thursday 25th June between 9.00am and 12.30pm. Please come in during this time and report to reception. There is also a message book at Reception for patients to sign.
The Practice has implemented a new Did Not Attend Policy. For full details click HERE and go to the Missed Appointments tab.
Do you suffer from Hay Fever?
Hay fever season is almost upon us, meaning many of us will soon be suffering from the runny noses and itchy eyes which can blight our Spring and Summer.
If you are known to suffer with hay fever and require a prescription to relieve the symptoms it’s not necessary to make an appointment to see your GP. You can simply fill out a form at Reception and return it to the Prescription box. Alternatively you download the form by clicking HERE and return it by email to email@example.com.

Think before you attend A&E
Before you attend A&E please think carefully about whether that is actually the right choice or whether you could get help elsewhere. There are still people heading to A&E even though they should really be seeking help from GPs, pharmacists or getting better at home.
The hospital teams find themselves having to care for people with illnesses such as colds and flu; or the winter sickness and diarrhoea bug – that means they have to balance the overriding need to deal with genuine medical emergencies; with the needs of the less seriously ill.
Many people arriving at A&E would get faster; more convenient help if they spoke to a qualified pharmacist; contacted the practice; called 111; visited one of the NHS walk-in centres or an urgent care centre.
