Pharmacists in our surgery
We are pleased to have 2 clinical pharmacists joining our team, working with us and the other Harpenden GP surgeries. They will help resolve day to day medicine issues and provide advice and support for patients who take numerous medications. They will help oversee safe prescribing of medicines, and may also support the management of patients with long term conditions.
There are currently measles outbreaks in our area. Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can be very unpleasant and sometimes lead to serious complications. Please call us to check your child/teenager has had the 2 injections they require for complete vaccination. We can provide any missing vaccinations.
For more info, and for what to look out for, see leaflet and link below:
To help us ensure we are keeping your information safe, we will now need your name, DOB and address before you can collect any document or prescription from the surgery.
Please also make sure we have your up-to-date contact details
Local data sharing scheme " My Care Record"
My Care Record allows health and care professionals working directly with you to access your medical and social care information. By making your information available across the health and care system, your GP practice, hospital team or community nurse will be able to see the most up-to-date, accurate information about you. For more information on this, including information on how to opt out, please see tab below Summary Care Record/My Care Record.
Food banks and Hygiene bank
We are now pleased to be collecting donations to pass onto local food banks. We would be grateful for any non-perishable food donations you can make. Large Foodbank collection baskets are in both reception areas.
Our Wheathampstead surgery is now also a collection point for The Hygiene bank. This aims to help those in hygiene poverty - donations of shower products, deodorant, toothbrushes and pastes, sanitary products, laundry products etc would all be welcomed. For Harpenden collection points, please see this link: https://www.thehygienebank.com/hertfordshire
