Flu Vaccinations 2018-2019
Due to the complicated schedule this year our flu clinics are going to be run differently. We will only be having 1 Saturday clinic on 29th September and this will be for the over 65 years olds only. This clinic is a bookable clinic unlike previous years where you could just walk in. Please contact the surgery on 01752 701659 to book your appointment.
If you are pregnant, under 65yrs and at risk or eligible for the child flu vaccination please contact the surgery to book into one of our weekday clinics.
From 11th September the surgery went live with eConsult this is a new technology that aims to reduce a patients' waiting time.
Our patients can now benefit from 24-hour online access to the GP practice. The new service is on many of Devon practices’ websites, aiming to help people get the right treatment they need at the right place, enabling patients to use online consultation technology for non-emergency ailments.
Patients can now fill out an online e-consultation form via our practice website www.roboroughsurgery.org.uk, which is then reviewed by a GP, before a response is sent to the patient within one working day.
These e-consultations that will take place, would otherwise be face-to-face consultations, so our GPs’ time will be freed up to see more patients with more urgent needs.
The range of innovative self-help tools available in the service also includes symptom-checkers, instructive video content created by GPs, and advice about the various places a patient can get help, including pharmacies, the NHS 111 helpline or an available app.
Patients can get quicker access to health advice, which in turn means that those who need to see a GP can get an appointment more quickly.
When a patient completes an online form about their condition, a GP will get in touch with the patient to give advice, offer an appointment if needed, or issue a prescription.
Because the service is online, it gives patients 24-hour access to the information they need at a time that is convenient to them.
Patients can of course still have face-to-face consultations with a GP. The online system is simply using today’s technology to give patients added, efficient and safe online access to GPs.
