Noticeboard

FLU VACCINATIONS: 

Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier. 

 

 

Trainee Doctors

TRAINING PRACTICES IN KENT, SURREY AND SUSSEX

The practice has now been accredited as being suitable for the training of those doctors intending to become General Practitioners.

This means that the practice and doctors have had to achieve a number of standards which have been assessed by Health Education Kent, Surrey and Sussex, acting on behalf of the national organisation (the Postgraduate Medical Education Board).

Oakfield Health Centre currently hosts a GP registrar (FY2 Doctor in training) who we have until August.

FY2 Doctors have a lot of experience of hospital medicine.

If you are seeing this doctor you can expect to receive the quality of service you would from your own GP.  If you have any concerns please mention this to a member of staff.

In order for the GP Registrars to successfully complete their training they need to be assessed on their consulting skills.  This is done by the appointed assessors viewing a video of the registrars consultations.  You may be asked for your permission to have your consultation recorded in this way.  If you agree, you will need to give your written permission and there is a consent form available at the desk, which you will be offered.  If the doctor appears to be recording your consultation and you have not signed a consent form then you should indicate this to him or her immediately.  The recording will be used for educational purposes only.  Further information about this process and the confidentiality of it, can be obtained from the reception staff.
