 Pneumonia Vaccine

This is usually a ‘one-off’ vaccine and can be given at any time of year to patients in an ‘at risk’ group. We often offer it at Flu Clinics if an eligible patient has not already had one.  Re-immunisation is not currently recommended for most people. Re-immunisation is only recommended after 5 years for people whose antibody levels are likely to decline rapidly, for example those with no spleen, with problems with their spleen or with nephrotic syndrome. Please do not hesitate to ask Doctor or Practice Nurse about your individual situation.


New Patients

We are currently accepting new patients - please refer to 'Our Services' for details on how to register.

Appointments

James Street Family Practice now has an appointment system that guarantees you will be seen within one working day.  The best way to book an appointment is by phone.  Ring the Practice on 01507 611122, give a brief description of your problem (you do not have to do this, but it helps us to know who the best person is for your to talk to).  Your telephone number will be taken and a doctor or nurse practitioner will call you back.  Should you need to be seen, an appointment will be booked directly with the clinician at a mutually convenient time.  As a top-tip, for routine reviews or results please try to avoid ringing on Mondays or the day after a Bank Holiday as they tend to be busy!

Online Appointment Booking

We are now able to offer our Patients the opportunity to pre-book a telephone appointment with a GP online.  The appointments available will be for a telephone call-back from the GP only, similar to if you had called in the Surgery that morning and requested an appointment over the telephone.

You will need to come into the Surgery and ask the Receptionist for your log-in details to access online services.  Once  registered, you will be able pre-book a telephone consultation with a GP and also order your repeat prescriptions if required.

PLEASE NOTE: the slots available for pre-booking will be at 08:15 hours - this is not necessarily when you will receive your call back, although it will be as near to then as possible.
