Welcome to the Quarryfoot Practice Website
News update from Quarryfoot...
Tell us about it
We are aware that some people use social media to let off steam about our service but it would be more helpful to us if you could use the comments facility here on the website to tell us about any experiences, good as well as bad, so that we can address any issues and reply if you would like us to. The comments facility is anonymous and is not designed for replying direct, however if you wish to leave contact details when you send your comments you are welcome to do so. In return we will regularly update the news on the webpage here and hope to make the website more interactive.
Text Messaging Service
we have been able to send out text messages for some time to patients from our clinical system for review appointments and also appointment reminders. If you would like to benefit from this service please make sure we have your most up-to-date mobile phone number for our records and don't forget to let us know if you change your number. It is surprising how many texts are returned because the number we have is now not in use or unavailable.
We are looking into changing the internal 'design' of the main reception /admin area in order to address some privacy issues and we will keep you updated on that.

Vaccination against pertussis (whooping cough) should be provided for all pregnant women from 28 weeks onwards. Vaccination against pertussis can be given at the same time as vaccination against influenza that is also recommended for pregnant women.
