Flu Clinic

The practice has now completed the annual flu clinic but if you are eligible for a flu injection you can still book an appointment with one of our reception team.

The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk. This is to ensure they are protected against catching flu and developing serious complications.

You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you: 

  • are 65 years of age or over   
  • are pregnant 
  • have certain medical conditions 
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility 
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill.

Our Health Partnership

We are pleased to announce that The Meadows Medical Practice is now part of Our Health Partnership

Meadows Medical Practice - Clun

The Meadows Medical Practice is a small, rural practice lying at the heart of the beautiful Clun valley. We cover a large geographical area with a patient population of approximately 3200. The whole practice is proud of its achievements and strives to provide the highest quality healthcare for all. We consistently rank highly in patient satisfaction surveys and are always keen to have patient feedback on how we are doing.

PRE-BOOKABLE APPOINTMENTS ONLY

In January 2017 we changed the way we work to better meet the changing demands within primary care and no longer operate the open surgery appointments.  We have increased both the number of appointments and the number of surgeries that we hold to allow for this change to ensure that patients continue to have choice.  Patients who need to be seen on the day will still be able to access a doctor, they will now be given a time to attend rather than having to sit and wait.

BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT

Urgent Problems: Although we no longer offer a walk in surgery we still have plenty of slots available for people who need to be seen urgently on the day but instead of just turning up we ask that you ring for an appointment and you will be given a time slot to attend.

For non-urgent problems or follow up appointments we ask you to plan and book ahead rather than expecting to be seen on the same day.  

We would like to reassure patients that we will continue to provide urgent/same day care to those who need it and no one needing to see a doctor on the day will ever be turned away

EMERGENCIES OUT OF HOURS

If you need medical care outside of our normal surgery hours (8am - 6pm) you can contact our Out of Hours service by phoning the surgery number 01588 640573.  Your call will be automatically transferred to Shropdoc.

PRESCRIPTION ORDERING

Prescriptions can be ordered online by using Patient Access (see below), by the website link below, by email  or by post. We do not accept telephone orders because of the increased risk of error. If you wish to register for online Patient Access please ask at the Surgery for a registration from or see Further Information (see right).

If you use our repeat prescription service please order early to avoid running out of medication. Please also consider stocking your medicine cupboard with simple over-the-counter remedies for minor illness.

Online Prescriptions via the Website

NB: You can still order your repeat medication online via this website and we are continuing to operate two separate email addresses for Clun and Knighton surgeries for the foreseeable future so please click on the link below and select the appropriate surgery.

We believe that it is safer, easier and more secure for you to order your repeat medication online though Patient Access and so we would encourage all our patients to register for the service through the Practice. However we do not have any plans to stop any of the other methods in the foreseeable future.
