Measles Cases are on the rise and the disease is highly infectious.
Measles is more than just a rash and can lead to serious complications including Meningitis and blindness, particularly in babies and young children. In fact, 1 in 15 children who contract measles develop serious complications.
The best way to protect your children from this serious and preventable disease is to keep their vaccinations up to date. The Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine is safe and has been used since the early 1980's. The vaccination is available to adults and children that are not fully vaccinated.
Please contact the surgery on 01482 341423 if you are unsure if your family is fully protected against Measles, Mumps and rubella. The surgey will shortly be sending out texts to patients who we believe are not fully vaccinated, offering you the opportunity to book an appointment.
Walk-in centre will move to Hull Royal Infirmary next week
Hull’s Story Street walk-in service will move to its new home at Hull Royal Infirmary on Monday 5 February, paving the way for improved integration of urgent care services in the city.
City Health Care Partnership CIC will continue to provide the service at the new location, and the centre will continue to offer treatment for minor illness and injury in a newly refurbished clinical space.
Co-locating the walk-in centre at the hospital means that it will benefit from better access to diagnostic services, such as X-ray. Additional minor injuries and diagnostic pathways will be established later this year to create a fully designated Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC).
The new site is located close to the main hospital entrance and clear signage is in place to direct people to the centre. The service will be open from 8am-8pm, 7 days a week.
People who need urgent medical help should use NHS 111 by phone or online. Highly trained advisors will assess and direct people to the most appropriate local service, including walk-in centres and UTCs
Changes to the pharmacy team telephone lines
The new hours for the pharmacy team telephone line are 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm. Alternatively, if it is not urgent, please email your query using the practice email address: HULLCCG.B81054-Outsidemail@nhs.net and the pharmacy team will get back to you regarding your query. If your query is urgent and outside of these hours, please speak to a receptionist.
We are working on putting our patients onto the Electronic Repeat Dispensing Scheme (eRD) This means we will review your regular or repeat prescriptions and send enough medication electronically to a pharmacy of your choice up until your next birthday. During the month of your birthday, you will be invited in for bloods/BP (if appropriate) then your eRD will be set back up again.
You do not need to do anything.
You can then collect your MONTHLY medication from your pharmacy when you have 5-7 days left of your current supply, if you have your prescription delivered to your home then you do not need to do anything.
Your GP will set up eRD for you.
Benefits of eRD allows your GP to prescribe your regular medicines for up to a year. It’s reliable, secure, and confidential. Your regular prescriptions are stored securely on the NHS database, so they'll be ready at the pharmacy each time you need them.
Using eRD you can:
· Save time by avoiding unnecessary trips or calls to your GP every time you need to order a repeat prescription
· Pick up your repeat prescriptions directly from your pharmacy without having to visit your GP
· Spend less time waiting for your prescription in the pharmacy or GP practice,
You can find more information at: www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/eRD-patients
If you are interested in using this scheme, please contact the surgery and your details will be passed to our pharmacy team.

Introduction to our new Senior Pharmacy Technician
My name is Paula Taylor Fdsc, BA (hons), and I am the Registered Senior Pharmacy Technician for Clifton House Medical Centre.
Years ago a pharmacy technician would only be found in a community pharmacy however over the last few years the role has become so much more.
Please ask for the pharmacy technician if you require any medicines information:
- You are unsure what medication you should be taking?
- Have concerns about your new or current medication?
- Experiencing side effects?
- Need a medication review?
- Or, anything relating to medication whether its big or small!
We have recently updated the name of our prescription team. They will now be called The Pharmacy Team. The change has been made as we introduce our newest member of staff, Paula, our Senior Pharmacy Technician. As the team will now work on much more than just issuing repeat prescriptions, we felt this warranted a new name. If you need to speak to the Pharmacy team you will find them on Option 2 when you call the surgery. They are available to speak to between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday.
Marmot Primary Care Network (PCN) currently delivers an “extended access” service which provides evening and weekend appointments for patients who are registered with practices that belong to Marmot PCN and also patients who are registered with practices that belong to Symphonie PCN.
