Shared Decision Making

Go to https://www.england.nhs.uk/ourwork/pe/sdm/ to visit the NHS Shared Decision Making website.

You can now see a GP at the weekend

You can now see a GP at the weekend...We are very pleased to be offering weekend appointments to our patients.

These appointments are available at a local health centre and can be booked through our receptionists.

We are encouraging people to use this service which provides additional appointments to fit in with your busy lifestyles.

Patients can see a GP, healthcare assistant or nurse over the weekend for routine GP appointments, health checks and treatments. People with long term health conditions such as asthma and diabetes can also access these appointments.

To find out more about the service please go to www.weekendgpservice.net or ask our receptionists.


Travel Vaccinations

Travel Clinics will now be held all day on Wednesdays which will be the only time when patients can have vaccines administered for travel.

Please ensure that your pre-travel questionnaire is completed and handed into reception at least 6 weeks before your travel date.


Annual Reviews

We have been reviewing how we can improve the quality of care to all of our patients, particularly to those with chronic health conditions like Diabetes, Heart and Lung conditions. When you receive letters inviting you for annual checks, please read the letter carefully and follow the instructions.

This process is new to all staff and our management team would value your feedback on the user experience.


Online Services

TPP SystmOnlineWe have introduced an online system to enable you to cancel appointments; book appointments with your usual GP; order your repeat prescription; or view a brief summary of your medical record.

Go to this page for details of how to obtain your SystmOnline username and password.


Changes to the way you collect your prescription

The NHS is introducing the Electronic Prescription Service. This could make collecting prescriptions easier and more convenient for you.

This service gives you the option to ‘nominate’ the place you choose to get your medication from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. This could save you a trip to your GP practice just to collect a prescription — particularly if you have regular prescriptions.

For more information please visit http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/eps/patients or download our leaflet.


Accountable GP

All patients of Lister Medical Centre, including children, have been allocated a named accountable GP. This is nothing new; we have been doing this for years but we are now required to tell you that we are doing it. Click here to read more about this requirement.


Have you just found out that you’re pregnant?

You can now book your pregnancy directly with the Midwife as you no longer need to see the GP.

Please call: 01279 827 817 from 8:30am to 9:30am and from 3:30pm to 4:30pm.
