The 2018 Patient Survey is now running from 23rd April to 11th May. We would really appreciate your participation either online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/V8DJ2NW or by collecting a survey and returning it to reception
Measles - There is currently an outbreak of Measles in Surrey - If you think you have measles call ahead and the receptionist team will arrange for you to be seen at the end of the GP surgery to minimise the risk of transmission.
Breast cancer screening - Some women aged between 70 and 79 are being re-invited for a breast screening appointment. The offer of a screen comes after some women did not receive an invitation for a final screen dating back to 2009. This was part of the routine NHS Breast Screening Programme, which invited women every three years aged 50 -70 (up to their 71st birthday).
This was caused by a problem in the screening IT system and different ways that regions issue invitations to patients.
Women who think they may be affected are being encouraged not to contact their GPs in the first instance but to contact the dedicated national helpline on 0800 169 2692 or to look on NHS Choices website for more information at www.nhs.uk/conditions/breast-cancer-screening/missed-invitations
