Welcome to Westfield Surgery
FLU SEASON - We have now sent letters to all eligible patients inviting them to attend our flu day on Saturday 26th September. We encourage all eligible patients to attend on this day if possible and to contact us after this date if they are not able to attend. Eligible patients are anyone over the age of 65 or 18-64 years with an underlying medical condition. We are not able to offer the flu vaccination to anyone outside of these groups at the present time.
We will ensure the safety of both patients and staff during this event and thank patients for their co-operation. We ask that patients come alone if possible or with one carer and dress accordingly for easy access to upper arms. There will be no waiting after your injection and we will operate a one way system throughout.
We look forward to welcoming you.
HEREFORDSHIRE'S APPROACH TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PANDEMIC
We continue to work within national guidelines and local polices during this time.
It is vitally important that you continue to follow GOvernment advice regarding hand washing and self-isolation / social distancing. For full details, please visit the Government's website (https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus)
In order to protect our healthcare staff, patients and the general public (in particular the most vulnerable members of society), please be aware that we are changing the way that Herefordshire General Practice operates during the crisis.
In particular, anyone needing an appointment will first be spoken to on the phone or via video. This will help to protect vulnerable patients, staff and the wider population. For the vast majority of cases, this will be sufficient to diagnose and advise on the issue. Face-to-face consultations will be continue to occur if a clinician feels they are necessary. We continue to build up services such as nurse appointments and blood tests on a step by step approach.
The changes are necessary given the serious situation we are facing and to ensure that GP services are as resilient as possible during this pandemic.

Online Consult allows patients to easily seek 24/7 support or access self-help advice, either for themselves or for those in their care and may even save you a face to face consultation.
