Welcome to Ouse Valley Practice
Flu vaccination for people who are aged 50 to 64
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.
- If your problem is complex it would be better to phone reception rather than use e-consult
- If you feel a photograph would be useful for the clinician then please attach to your e-consult
Our team are here to treat acute problems as well as providing long-term management of chronic conditions. Clinics we provide cover a wide range of healthcare issues including child/travel/flu vaccinations, minor operations, antenatal care, diabetes, cervical screening and family planning.
Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) exists to make sure that the services we are offering continue to meet the needs of patients.
.Teaching and Training
Ouse Valley Practice is an accredited Training Practice and is part of the GP Vocational Training Scheme (VTS) for Mid-Sussex. This means that both the Trainer and the Practice are inspected and have to meet certain standards and undergo a re-accreditation process. You may be offered an appointment with a GP Registrar who is a fully qualified doctor completing their training to become a GP. On occasions, GP Registrars may be sitting in with another GP in the surgery. You can consent or decline to have them sitting in with you if you wish.
Dr Janet Hardingham and Dr Katie Briggs - GP Trainers
The Surgery is also affiliated to Brighton and Sussex Medical School. We will occasionally have medical students in the Practice. They are early in their training to become doctors so will be fully supervised by another doctor. They may be sitting in on consultations to observe; normally on a Thursday afternoon. You may be asked if you would mind being involved in their education by allowing them to ask you some questions or examine you under supervision. Patient involvement is greatly appreciated and helps medical students learn to become competent doctors. You should be informed that medical students will be in attendance when you book an appointment. If you would prefer them not to be present, please inform reception staff.
Dr Tiziana Camilleri - Medical Student Co-ordinator
Both surgeries have access for wheelchairs.
