SUPPORT YOUR GP PRACTICE - HAVE YOUR FLU JAB WITH US!
ONE STOP CLINICS
INFLUENZA / SHINGLES / PNEUMONIA AND BLOOD PRESSURE CHECK
(only eligible patients)
The Practice has already purchased and reserved "flu vaccinations for ALL of our eligible patients. This year, the practice is offering two different vaccinations, based on the latest guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisations, who advise the NHS on which immmunisations to provide. We will be offering the Fluad vaccination to all patients aged 65 (on or before 31st March 2019), as this has shown to be the most effective for this age group. For all patients who are not in this age group, and are eligible, we will be offering the Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccination which offers protection from four different strains of flu: Michigan, Singapore, Colorado and Phuket; this is based on the World Health Organisation's recommendation for the 2018/19 flu season.
Attending the surgery for your vaccination will ensure that you will be vaccinated in a properly equipped consulting room or treatment room by a qualified member of our nursing team or GP team who will have access to your medical records and are properly equipped for emergencies. You will be supporting the practice and helping to ensure that resources are not removed from General Practice.
To make an appointment for your vaccination, please telephone the surgery on 01787 222022. If you are unsure whether you are eligible for the clinics, please speak to one of our reception team who will be happy to advise you.
We very much appreciate your support.

Welcome to The Pump House Surgery
The Pump House Surgery is a much loved rural practice having been established in the village over 200 years ago. We are a three-partner GMS rural practice working from modern purpose built facilities. We cover the village of Earls Colne and surrounding areas. We have a full complement of dispensary, nursing and administrative staff. The surgery is a pleasing environment, having been sympathetically converted from a former steel foundry 10 years ago. The rooms are spacious and well equipped.
PROTECTED LEARNING TIME FOR GPS AND PRACTICE STAFF
To continually improve the services offered to patients within the Mid Essex area, Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group have arranged monthly training sessions for all GPs and practice staff. The surgery (including the dispensary) will be closed from 12.30pm until 8.00am the next day on the following dates:
Tuesday 13th November 2018

Our Mission Statement
We aim to provide a comfortable and cheerful atmosphere for all of our patients and will always treat you with the utmost respect.
The Pump House Surgery is to use the funds allocated to them for Health Care to reduce morbidity and improve the quality of life for it patient population, by offering a caring medical service of the highest quality based on established professional standards that satisfies the needs of our patients and is provided by professionally competent, content and motivated staff. We are committed to quality and innovation.
We are a very friendly practice and hope you will find us helpful with any of your medical requirements.
From April 2015 all practices are required to provide their patients with a named, accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.
As we have just under 8,000 registered patients, it would be an impossible task to inform you all individually by letter so, should you wish to know who your GP is, we ask that you please speak to our receptionists who will gladly give you this information. Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other GP in the practice at any time.
Should you wish to change your named GP in the future please contact us and arrangements can be made. You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further, please speak to our reception staff.
TELEPHONE LINES ARE OPEN 8.00 - 6.30 - MONDAY TO FRIDAY
THE SURGERY IS CLOSED BETWEEN 1.00PM & 2.00PM FOR STAFF TRAINING.
