Welcome to Tenbury Surgery
Tenbury Surgery is aware of the announcement today by the Department for Health and Social Care that anyone aged 50-64 has now been added to the eligible cohorts for this year's flu vaccine. We are now working to order additional vaccine supply and plan for more flu clinics in December. We ask that patients refrain from ringing the practice with inquiries on this and we will communicate the new arrangements for flu clinics in the near future.'
Tenbury Surgery serves the whole of Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire as well as its surrounding villages. Our branch surgery at Clee Hill in Shropshire is open part time and offers a dispensing service. Our patient list size is approximately 9500 patients and our practice area is approximately 100 square miles.
Our team includes four GP Partners and two salaried GP's, a Practice Nursing Team as well as our Practice Manager, secretarial, reception, administration and cleaning staff. As a training practice we also have a GP Registrar as well as medical and nursing students.
We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for children and pregnant women, diabetes, asthma, COPD, anti-coagulation therapy and smoking cessation. We also have visiting clinicians who offer psychology and drugs misuse support.
At Tenbury Surgery we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.
IN LINE WITH RECENT GOVERNMENT AND NHS ADVICE ALL PATIENTS ENTERING THE SURGERY MUST NOW WEAR A FACE COVERING OR SURGICAL MASK. THESE CAN BE OBTAINED FROM LOCAL GARAGES AND SUPERMARKETS. THE PRACTICE ONLY HOLDS A LIMITED STOCK WHICH IS RESEREVED FOR OUR CLINICIANS.
PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT ISSUE EXEMPTION NOTES OR LETTERS FOR PATIENTS NOT WISHING TO WEAR FACE COVERINGS

Our telephone lines are open as normal for all queries and we are still seeing patients subject to them being triaged first. Patients that just turn up will not be seen.
We are taking 10 times the number of calls than usual and staff are trying to answer the phones as quickly as possible.

Flu Vaccinations 2020
We are still waiting to hear whether 50 - 64 year olds with no pre existing conditions will be included. Nationally there aren't enough vaccines for this group at the moment as so many people have had the Flu vaccine this year. The trend for previous years was for less and less patients having the vaccine.
Children aged 2-3rs can still be vaccinated (nasal spray) in the surgery. Please call to book an appointment. Walk in patients will not be seen due to maintaining social distancing measures.
