******* UPDATE *******

I am pleased to let you know that we have managed to secure enough vaccine to offer appointments to our patients who are over the age of 70 years and those regarded as clinically at risk.

We will be holding clinics over the next few days so you should be receiving a telephone call to book an appointment. This means our teams will be making over 500 telephone calls to make appointments so thank you for your continued patience at this very busy time.

Practice Manager

***Coronavirus Vaccine update***

As I am sure you will appreciate, we are working hard to ensure that all of our patients in the priority groups are offered an appointment to have the Coronavirus Vaccine.

To date we have been working through the eligible cohorts in turn and have held several clinics, two of which have been whole days.

The Government have announced that all patients in groups 1 to 4 will be vaccinated or offered an appointment by the 15th February. We know that we still need to vaccinate some patients in those groups, particularly the over 70 age group and those deemed clinically at risk. We are allocated the vaccine on a week by week basis so please rest assured that we will be calling you the moment that we are told that vaccine is being delivered to us.

We appreciate that everyone is very keen to get the vaccine and we are ready and prepared to call you to invite you to make an appointment just as soon as we know that we have supplies.

Our telephone lines are extremely busy with enquiries about this which may prevent patients with a medical emergency reaching us. Please wait to be called.

With very best wishes

Pam Saltmer

Practice Manager


** Covid Vaccination Programme **

The Covid Vaccination programme has commenced and is a schedule of 2 vaccinations. Local practices are working together to provide this important vaccine to all eligible patients across Scarborough and Ryedale.

We are working under strict guidelines from NHS England regarding eligibility and the order of invitations. If you are eligible you will be contacted by the practice and should expect to book 2 appointments for your 2 doses. Please note the location of your appointment as this may not be your usual surgery.

Please be assured that you will be contacted as the vaccine becomes available to our patients.

These are challenging times and we thank you for remaining patient and respectful with our staff whilst they try to assist you.

Thank you

 


Patient Participation Group

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The Patient Participation Group was first formed in 2012/2013 and is made up of 9 patient representatives who meet approximately every 8 weeks with the Practice Manager and an Administrator to discuss any issues affecting patient care and assist in providing a good service to our patients. The Patient Participation Group represents the views of the patient body and provides feedback on their needs and concerns.

If you have anything you would like the group to discuss please click here for the contact details of our members who would be happy to help.

The Group’s Mission

The Group’s Mission is to support the continuous improvement of services delivered by Ayton and Snainton Medical Practice by finding ways of making a positive contribution to the delivery and development of local health care services.

Health Information Days

In July 2015 the group joined forces with Derwent Valley Bridge Community Library and Resource Centre to run Health information Days. Since 2015 the group has organised four health information days, two of which were held during the summer months and were called “Keep Well – Stay Well” and the other two during winter months called “Keep Well for Winter” and “Self-Care Health Care”.

The aim of the health days was to:

  • Let the people attending get a quick health check from the practice nurse team.
  • Have a chance to chat with a range of organisations that could help them manage their health.
  • Learn new ways of keeping well through healthy eating and cookery demonstrations
  • Attend talks about a range of organisations that can help people to keep well and manage their health conditions or the conditions of those close to them.

 

If you interested in joining the group please contact Pam Saltmer or Adele Robinson on 01723 863100.

Many thanks for your assistance
