CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF THE NHS
Thank you to everyone who came along to help us celebrate the NHS 70th Birthday. It was a great success. We would like to thank members of the Patient Participation group who assisted before and on the day. We would also like to thank the Seaside singers who sang some great tunes from the 40's and 50's.
We raised a total of £200.00 which will go to the charity Friends of Pond Road. Friends of Pond Road charity help Shoreham Health Centre to purchase equipment.
If we have your email address on record prior to 25th May 2018 we will continue to send you our quarterly practice newsletter. However, if you would like to stop receiving emails with the practice newsletter on then please complete the below opt out form.
This can be brought into the surgery or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org

Physiotherapy Self-Referral – changes from 2nd April 2018
You will no longer be able to self-refer for Physiotherapy by telephone, but will be required to complete a new form and either email, post or deliver it by hand to the relevant department (addresses are available on the form). Hard copies of the new referral form are also available at Reception.

From 1st April 2018 we will no longer be carrying out routine ear syringing at the Practice, with the exception of patients who have been referred to the local Audiology Department and need to have their ears clear of wax before they attend their appointment. This is an 'extra' service that is not funded by NHS England and all the local surgeries across Adur and Worthing have decided to withdraw this service. We have told our local Clinical Commissioning Group that we are withdrawing this service, and if they fund it we will be happy to continue to do it.
MIAMI clinics are proving invaluable in helping us provide prompt 'on the day' access to a GP for our patients. You will only be offered an appointment if you are suitable and pressure on the system is high.
