Latest Information

Heat Wave Alert

Amber warning - Extreme Heat 

 

Thursday 11 August 00:00 - Sunday 14 August 23:59

 

Advice

 

Look out for others, especially older people,  pregnant women, young children and babies and those with underlying health conditions. 

 

Close curtains on rooms that face the sun to keep indoor spaces cooler. 

 

Drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol.

 

Apply sun cream regularly and wear a hat in the sun. 

 

Dress appropriately for the weather. 

 

Try to avoid being out in the sun during the hottest part of the day.

 

Slow down when it is hot. Try to avoid doing excessive exercise during the hottest part of the day.

 

Everyone is at risk of dehydration in hot temperatures, but older people, pregnant women, babies and children are particularly vulnerable. Be aware of signs of dehydration such as increased thirst, dry mouth, dark urine and urinating infrequently or small amounts. If you are concerned that someone is becoming seriously unwell from dehydration, this requires urgent medical attention. 

 

Chronic illness can get worse in hot weather.

 

Heat exhaustion and heatstroke are two potentially serious conditions that can occur if you get too hot. You should take steps to cool down and you should feel better within 30 minutes of doing this.

 

Signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke:

  • A headache
  • Dizziness or confusion
  • Loss of appetite and feeling sick
  • Excessive sweating and pale, clammy skin
  • Cramps in the arms, legs or stomach
  • Fast breathing or pulse
  • A high temperature of 38c or above
  • Being very thirsty

 

If you have concerns about your health or someone else’s during the heatwave, please contact the GP or NHS 111 for advice. 

 

You should call 999 for an ambulance if a person:

  • Does not respond to cooling treatments within 30 minutes.
  • Has severe symptoms such as loss of consciousness, confusion or seizures.

Rugby Health

Weekly and Weekend Health and Medical Check up in Rugby

 

Rugby Health Limited is a Primary Care Network representing 12 GP Practices in Rugby, who are getting ready to deliver additional services, beyond the 8am-6pm appointments offered by GP Practices currently. 

 

From 01 October 2022, Rugby Health Limited will be scheduling additional clinics so that non-urgent check-ups and health-care demands such as smear tests, wound-care, contraceptive care, routine reviews/care for conditions such as diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, review of medication and many other options can be addressed. 

 

These appointments will be held at one of the out-of-hours clinics either at Rugby Health and Wellbeing Centre, Drover Close, Rugby or Brookside Surgery, Stretton on Dunsmore. 

 

The appointments will be available Monday to Friday 6.30pm-8pm and Saturdays only 9am-5pm. 

 

Appointments will be available to book 2 weeks in advance. Same day appointments may be available, but cannot be guaranteed. 

 

In view of this, Rugby Health Limited has asked patient's to complete a quick survey to enable them to tailor the services to the needs of the area.

 

Please click the link below to complete the survey. We would encourage anyone registered with a Rugby GP to complete this survey.

Face Coverings

(updated 18 July 2022)

 

Due to the latest COVID surge, the decision has been made by the NHS to reintroduce facemasks within NHS settings. This includes GP practices. 

 

Although nationally you no longer need to wear face coverings in public spaces, this ruling does not include NHS premises.  

 

We therefore ask that you wear a face mask when entering the building and keep it on during the course of your visit to the surgery. 

 

If you do not have a face covering that adequately covers your mouth and nose, please speak to a member of staff who can provide you with one. 

 

If you are exempt, you are not required to wear a face covering. 

 

We would also like to remind you that if you have any COVID symptoms, you do not enter the surgery building. Please take a lateral flow test and if you need to speak to a Doctor, phone the surgery to book a telephone appointment. 

 

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Personal data is shared with information governance-compliant organisations to search and identifiy individuals entitled to health care in the community, recommended by NHSE, but not provided by practices.

Primary Care Network (PCN) Staff

Bennfield Surgery is 1 of 12 surgeries within the same Primary Care Network. The PCN consists of GP practices working together, along with other healthcare staff and organisations, providing integreated services to the local population. 

 

Each PCN is given a sum of money and it is up to the PCN to determine how best to spend that money, depending on the needs of the area. 

 

Our PCN has employed a variety of PCN staff to ease the pressures from GPs and to bridge the gap between GP and Hospital referrals. 

 

Some of the staff already employed are:

 

  • Pharmacist
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Physiotherapist
  • Chiropodist
  • Dietitian
  • Mental Health Workers
  • Social Prescriber

 

Some of the services offered above are directly bookable by our Reception staff and you may be offered an appointment with one of the PCN staff rather than a GP when phoning for an appointment. 

Protected Learning Time (PLT) Dates

The GP Protected Learning Time (PLT) days are held regularly and contribute towards our staff continuous professional development. 

 

On these PLT days, the surgery will be open as usual in the morning and will close at 12.30pm. Any urgent queries during the afternoon of a PLT day should be directed to NHS 111.

 

Forthcoming PLT days for 2022 are:

Thursday 15th September

Wednesday 12th October

Thursday 24th November
