Noticeboard

We are delighted to announce that patients of our practice are being invited for the Covid-19 vaccination. The programme rollout is phased to ensure vaccine deliveries, logistics and staffing are robustly implemented and consequently, in line with national guidance. Please be assured that we are working tirelessly to telephone patients who are eligible to make vaccination appointments as soon as they are available.


We ask all of you in our practice community to please be patient and wait for your call. Our phones are incredibly busy with poorly patients seeking medical advice and treatment at this time of year and we must ask that you do not call us to enquire about the Covid-19 vaccination. As more vaccine is delivered, more people from other eligible cohorts will be contacted and invited for vaccination in due course. You may find it helpful to read more information about the Doncaster vaccination programme rollout and FAQs on the NHS Doncaster CCG website: https://www.doncasterccg.nhs.uk/your-care/coronavirus-latest-news-and-information/covid-19-vaccine/


 


Thank you all for your patience and understanding whilst our staff work hard to ensure the vaccination programme rollout is a success across the Doncaster South Primary Care Network.



COVID-19 VACCINE SCAM ALERT - If you receive a message from, what looks like, the NHS, but it is asking for your bank details or requests payment to book a COVID vaccine – THIS IS A SCAM. When you are eligible for your vaccine you will be contacted directly by your GP Practice for your FREE COVID vaccine appointment.


 



The practice is now on Facebook! Our page, 'The Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice', is an information bulletin to keep our patient's informed on all things happening at the practice and any updates or information on programmes within the NHS.

ONLINE CONSULTATIONS

The Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice would like to invite you to join DoctorLink.

We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line.

Registration is simple and you can register here https://app.doctorlink.com/tickhill&collierymedicalpractice/register 

For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.

The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.

The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self-care.

If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at The Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice, you simply click on the “book an appointment” button and book your appointment directly.

If no appointments are available, you will see a “request an appointment” button, please click this.

Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).

The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.

WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED

When we are closed if you contact the surgery for the OOH Service and are not connected it will be due to the lines being busy please try again until you are connected to the call handler.

Thank you for visiting the website of the Tickhill Surgery and the Colliery Surgery. This website is intended as a source of information for patients.

We are a semi rural practice operating from two surgeries 3 miles apart, both of which are fully equipped and patients attend one or the other surgery. The majority, 6000 patients are registered at Tickhill and approximately 3200 from Bircotes / Harworth and the surrounding villages.

Tickhill is a prosperous semi rural community with some strong local farming roots. Bircotes and Harworth are mining villages, with some areas of deprivation following the closure of the local Colliery and other small manufacturing sites.

The practice has a GMS contract and is a high achiever of QOF points.

The practice operates a ZERO tolerance policy, our staff are here to help and not to be abused this will NOT under any circumstances be accepted and appropriate action would be considered and if necessary implemented.
