Slipper Exchange was held on 14 February 2019 at the surgery and was run by Community 360 of Braintree. The aim was to provide new slippers for our elderly patients to prevent falls. They exchanged 21 pairs of slippers from patients which was a very good response. We will be holding this event again at a later date.
Self Check in Screen
We have installed an automated check-in screen. This is on the left of the waiting room. It is hoped that this will reduce queuing in the reception area. Using the screen is easy and there are clear instructions but if you would rather speak to a receptionist please do so. The reception team will help you if you have any queries
If you aged 70 or 78 you may be entitled to the Shingles Vaccination. Please ask at the surgery
Coggeshall Patient Participation Group
The last PPG meeting was held on 1 April 2019 with Paula Wilkinson, Chief Pharmacist of the Mid Essex CCG giving a talk on Medicine Wastage along with Norma Huxter who is a volunteer Community Champion for the CCG. The meeting was well attended by the PPG members and surgery staff.
The next meeting will be held in the Summer 2019.
