The MenACWY vaccine for 18 year olds programme starts 31.08.2016 and patients who are 18 will be invited in however at the moment stocks are low so please bare with us!
'Freshers' students going to university for the first time are advised to have the vaccine to prevent Meningitis W disease. It also protects against Meningitis A, C and Y.
This year we will also be giving patients the Pneumococcal vaccination. It is for any adult with a long term condition, or if you are over 65 years old even if you do not have a long term condition.
You only need one single vaccination which will protect you for life. It is not given annually like the flu vaccine is.
The Shingles jab, like the Pneumococcal is a one off injection. It does not guarantee that you will never get Shingles again, but it will reduce your chances of getting it. If you do contract shingles after having the jab, it is likely that the symptoms will be milder and the illness period shorter.
You are only eligible for a Shingles jab at a certain age. To check whether you are eligible, please see the list below:
Dr Turley, Dr Tomaszczyk and Dr Burdon will now be dropping down to 6 sessions a week.

Dr Ross MacLeod is our Foundation 2 doctor.
I studied medicine at Leeds University and also did an intercalated degree
in microbiology, graduating in 2015. Before coming to the Roseworth
Surgery I worked in the RVI and Freeman Hospitals and have had rotations
in ENT, general surgery, cardiology, acute medicine and renal medicine.
I enjoy going on my lunchtime visits on my bike and on my days
off you'll find me surfing at Tynemouth.
Dr Brown is our General Practice Registrar (GPR)

Roseworth surgery patient information.
The Department of Health has advised us that at the end of January they will begin extracting information on Fit Notes (formerly called Sick Notes) from patient medical records. This information will be anonymised so individuals will not be identified. The data is being collected on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions to:
• Undertake research analysis to inform policy relating to employment and sickness absence, including evaluation of the Fit for Work programme
• Help identify geographic level differences in return to work so that national and local providers can respond to provide appropriate services.
The surgery has no power to prevent this data extraction which will be retrospective to December 2014 and will continue until August 2018. Individuals may, however, opt out by requesting an opt out form from reception, this will lead to a read code (XaZ89) being added to your notes to prevent extraction.
We now have a new part time nurse Laura Lois working in the practice! She works Wednesdays and Fridays. Every other Wednesday night, Laura will have a late night surgery on for patients who work.
