It has come to our attention that many local residents have received a promotional letter from a company called Pharmacy2U. Please be aware that this is a marketing tactic from an on line pharmacy company based in Leeds and if you sign up (or 'nominate') them to be your pharmacy by returning the form with the letter, they will send your repeat medication via the Royal Mail. If you have received a letter from Pharmacy2U and are happy with your current nominated pharmacy and how you receive your medication, please ignore it.
Our team works together to provide all our patients with the best possible care, now and in the future. The practice has many extended services available to patients:
Minor Illness Clinics
Anti Coagulation (Warfarin) Clinic
Child Health Clinics and immunisations
Long Term Condition Clinics; such as diabetes and asthma, which need regular monitoring and annual review
Contraceptive coil fitting and reviews
Contraceptive implant fitting and removal
Minor injury care
At Wetmore Road Surgery we are making changes to our Chronic Disease recall system. From now on you will be invited annually, during your birthday month. If you have reviews at the hospital, we may still need to see you at the Surgery.
If you have already had your review this year, you may not be recalled again until your birthday month. We hope that the new system will ensure continuity and improve the quality of care we offer.
Please call after 12.00pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request at this time.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the patient directly unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you are requested to take a test, your GP or nurse will tell you when you can expect the results to be available.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
The seasonal flu vaccination clinics are available between October and March. Please book an appointment if you are eligible for this.
Influenza – flu – is a highly infectious and potentially serious illness caused by influenza viruses. Each year the make-up of the seasonal flu vaccine is designed to protect against the influenza viruses that the World Health Organization decide are most likely to be circulating in the coming winter.
Regular immunisation (vaccination) is given free of charge to the following at-risk people, to protect them from seasonal flu:
people aged 65 or over
people living in a residential or nursing home
the main carers for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer becomes ill
health care or social care professionals directly involved in patient care
those who work in close contact with poultry, such as chickens
people with a serious medical condition
For more information on flu immunisation, including background information on the vaccine and how you can get the jab, see Seasonal flu jab.
There is a full guide on the NHS immunisation website or you can download the pdf guide here

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
It is important to take care whilst travelling. Please take a look at our travel advice leaflet and cost of travel vaccines on the links below.
