We are now booking appointments for this years influenza vaccination for patients in at risk groups and for the over 65's. Please contact the Reception team on 01476 348484 to book your appointment.
FLU SEASON FOR 50 TO 64 YEARS
Patients in the 50 to 64 year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50 to 64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from flu, you will be invited earlier.
Since January 2019 we have changed the way patients access GP appointments at the Practice. There is no requirement to pre-book a GP appointment as any medical matters you present with will be dealt with on the day using AskmyGP.
Ask my GP makes requesting help from your GP easier and for many patients more convenient. You will be able to send a request on any medical matter to a GP or Nurse Practitioner during the hours listed below using the link and a clinician will always aim to respond promptly where possible. All patients have to do to be able to consult online with their clinician is follow a few short, easy steps online to register. There’s never a queue online.
AskMyGP is available to use Monday-Friday 07.30-16:00. Please use this service for all appointment requests. If you do not have access to the internet you can simply call us, our receptionist will need to take some medical details and a clinician will call you back. Patients may not need to attend the practice saving valuable time and reducing the number of missed appointments. If the GP feels a face to face appointment is required then this will be offered to you.
Please note all appointments with our nursing team have remained the same and must be booked in advance.
All of our registered patients are asked to use this service and you can use the service if you are a parent or carer. Please note however, that we may need permission from the patient to discuss their medical information with you.
Welcome to St John's Medical Centre
The doctors and staff at St John's Medical Centre surgery in Grantham are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similarly respectful way. We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour against any of our staff or patients.
If a patient is violent or abusive, they will be warned to stop their behaviour. If they persist, we may exercise our right to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary , from our list of patients.
Electronic Repeat Dispensing
If you get regular or repeat prescriptions, you could save time by switching to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD). eRD sends your prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery to a pharmacy of your choice. It’s easy to use and you don't need a computer or electronic device. Ask your GP or pharmacist to set it up for you.
Until further notice, all patients over the age of 2 will be expected to provide and wear their own face covering (ideally cotton or a face mask) when attending the surgery and during consultations. This is in line with government advice.
