The Wellington Practice transferred into new reception area ready for Monday opening 20th May 2024. We literally have moved left

The Wellington Practice transferred into new reception area ready for Monday opening 20th May 2024. We literally have moved left so as you usually approach us we are now left a bit. Probably easier as you come into the main Aldershot centre atrium to walk left of the big hanging artwork and make your way round the left and approach us from the garrison practice side. It is a larger front desk so more room to be able to manage patient queries. It won’t be long before our automatic patient check in monitor will be running however we are having NHS IT issues getting it sorted. We hope this will be an improvement on the much smaller reception we had for so many years.

Diabetic Eye Screening Portal for Results Viewing

Patients will now be able to book and manage their appointments online via our brand-new Patient Portal. Patients will also have the ability to view their results and images from previous appointments.

This can be accessed by following the QR Code on the attached document and will link to the NHS App.

21 Nov 2023 – World Antibiotic Awareness Week

World Antibiotic Awareness Week

Antibiotics are essential medicines for treating bacterial infections in both humans and animals.

Antibiotics are losing their effectiveness at an increasing rate.

Bacteria can adapt and find ways to survive the effects of an antibiotic. They become ‘antibiotic resistant’ so that the antibiotic no longer works. The more you use an antibiotic, the more bacteria become resistant to it.

Antibiotics should be taken as prescribed, never saved for later or shared with others; it is important we use antibiotics in the right way, the right drug, at the right dose, at the right time for the right duration. Appropriate use of antibiotics will slow down the development of antibiotic resistance.

There are very few new antibiotics in the development pipeline, which is why it is important we use our existing antibiotics wisely and make sure these life-saving medicines continue to stay effective for us, our children and grandchildren.

Many antibiotics are prescribed and used for mild infections when they don’t need to be. All colds and most coughs, sinusitis, otitis media (earache) and sore throats get better without antibiotics.

Community pharmacists are well placed to help provide advice on over the counter medicines to manage symptoms and help with self-care.

Individuals (the public, healthcare professionals, educators and leaders) can take action by choosing a pledge and becoming an Antibiotic Guardian: www.antibioticguardian.com

PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME FOR TRAVEL TO APPOINTMENTS 2/4/24-14/4/24

PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME FOR TRAVEL TO APPOINTMENTS

Notice from Grainger PLC. Dear Resident, ROAD CLOSURES 2nd April – 14th April 2024 PARKING TO BE SUSPENDED ON PENNEFATHER’S ROAD.

We are writing to inform you that from Tuesday 02nd April 2024 – Sunday 14th April 2024 we will be closing off sections of Queen’s Avenue and Alison’s Road carriageway. As you are aware our Contractor; Hope and Clay, are carrying out extensive highway works around the junction of Alison’s Road and Queen’s Avenue to upgrade the existing carriageway and to introduce a shared use footway/cycleway facility. These works are due to be completed by the summer of this year and we’d like to thank all our residents for their continued patience whilst the works take place. During the school Easter holiday period (30th March – 14th April), there will be phased temporary closures on Alison’s Road from Buller Roundabout up to and including Queen’s Avenue which are programmed as follows: 2 nd April – 7 th April series of phased closures at Buller Roundabout and Alison’s Road (East of Alison’s Road-Queen’s Avenue Traffic Signals Junction). 8th April – 14th April series of phased closures at the Queens Avenue and Alisons Road Traffic Signals Junction. Temporary diversion signs will be in place for vehicle traffic to use alternative routes via A323 Wellington Road and A325 Farnborough Road – please see on the reverse an indicative map showing alternative vehicle route.

Access for pedestrians and cyclists will still be available via the footpath diversions on either side of Queen’s Avenue. Access for vehicles during their respective phased road closures will be maintained for: ➢ Cambridge School car park via Steeles Road Junction from Queen’s Avenue south. ➢ Prince’s Avenue, St Andrew’s Church, Cathedral Church of St Michael & St George via Queens Avenue north from A325 Queens Roundabout. ➢ St Omer Barracks via Ordnance Road approach utilising the existing U-Turn prior to Buller Roundabout. ➢ Browning Barracks via A325 Farnborough Road. ➢ Garrison Garage 24/7 vehicle access will be always available either via Queens Avenue Traffic Signals Junction during w/c 1 st April or via Buller Roundabout during w/c 8th April.

We have worked with Stagecoach to ensure their services can continue to operate. As previous Queen’s Avenue road closures, the bus stops currently outside Aldershot Centre for Health on Queen’s Avenue will temporarily be moved to Pennefather’s Road during Queens Avenue closures.

We will be suspending all parking along Pennefather’s Road while these works take place to enable easy access for buses and emergency vehicles.

In the case of emergency during the works, please contact Hope & Clay on 07831811910. Please do get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns on either 01252 351966 or email info@wellesleyhampshire.co.uk

We apologise for the inconvenience that these works will cause and we thank you for your patience and understanding. Best Wishes, The Wellesley Team

The resources on the Healthier Together have been developed in partnership between parents and NHS healthcare professionals. You’ll find clear information on common childhood illnesses, including advice on what ‘red-flag’ signs to look out for, where to seek help if required, what you should do to keep your child comfortable and how long your child’s symptoms are likely to last.
