Welcome to the Banks Surgery,
FLU VACCINATIONS 2020-2021
As you can imagine, this years flu campaign will be a little challenging. We once again have different flu vaccinations for different age groups. Our delivery schedules are a little scattered.
We hope that you will appreciate that there are some difficult factors that we need to take into consideration and as such we will not be able to carry out vaccinations during normal surgery times. Our first flu clinic will be for the OVER 65's only. Please do not try to book if you are under 65. We will be ringing you over the coming days. You may also be eligible for the Pneumonia and Shingles vaccinations. If you do not want any vaccinations then please let us know so that we can document your records accordingly.
The latest guidance that we have received regarding the extended vaccination program for the 50-65 years old's, is that this will not begin until at least November/December and this will only be offered if there is enough available vaccines.
When the clinics are taking please, be aware that......
* You will need to queue in the car park at least 1 metre apart
*You will need to wear a face covering
*You will only enter the building once advised
*Please ensure you have loose clothing so we can easily access the top of you arm
*You will be standing for the vaccination (if you are unable to do so, please advise when we speak to you to book the appointment and then reception will give another date
*Do not enter the building if you have a high temperature, new continuous cough, have a loss of smell or taste.
*Please make use of the hand sanitiser.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Extended Access Appointments:
We are increasing the number of appointments available for you to see a GP in the early mornings, evenings or at weekends across West Leicestershire from the 1st of October 2018.
Depending on your individual circumstances and symptoms, we may offer you an ‘extended access’ appointment. Please note however, that these appointments will not be in your usual GP practice and will not be with one of your usual GPs or nurses.
Depending on the reason for your appointment, and if you are in agreement, it may be suitable for you to see an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, instead of a GP.
The clinician you see will be able to access relevant sections of your medical notes and will communicate what has happened during your appointment back to your usual GP practice.
These appointments will be available at the following locations:
Rosebery Street Medical Centre
Coalville Community Hospital
Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital
