Noticeboard

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

On the 25th May 2018 a new European Law came into play for all organisations.

 Please notify reception if you are happy for us to contact you via Letter, Telephone Call or Text.

 Failing to do this could affect your health care as Rainworth Surgery is legally required to work within the new regulation and requires explicit consent from our patients for specific forms of contact.

Shingles Vaccine    Please consider a Shingles vaccination if you are 70-73 and your birthday is between 2 September 1942 and 1 September 1946, or 78-79 with your birthday 2 September 1936 - 1 September 1938, ask at Reception for further information.

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

Home visits are normally only available to patients who are housebound/bedbound, or at the discretion of the doctor. 

On average a doctor can see four patients in surgery in the time it takes to make one single home visit. Sick children will be seen as soon as possible if brought to the surgery. Lack of transport is not a valid reason for a home visit; the doctor is not a taxi service!

Routine visits should be requested from 08:30 to 10:00 and these will usually be made between 12:00 and 15:30.

Emergency visits, for life-threatening cases, can be requested at any time. These are usually put through to the doctor on call who will visit at the appropriate time according to need. Sometimes, for example in collapse with unconsciousness, severe chest pain, or stroke symptoms, it is safer to call 999 first, before the doctor.
