Noticeboard


Another theft at Cofton Medical Centre.

On Friday 8th July, someone went into a doctor's consulting room, stole his car keys from his coat pocket and helped themselves to his car.  He discovered the theft when he needed his car to carry out an urgent home visit late on Friday afternoon.  This is the second incident we've had in a couple of months where someone has been into a consulting room.  The first incident involved the theft of a doctor's purse from her handbag which was kept in a drawer in her consulting room.

In view of these events, we are increasing security and all staff will be locking doors and asking patients to wait in corridors if they have to leave the consulting room for any reason. You may also be challenged by a member of staff if you are seen wandering in the corridor or anywhere outside the waiting room area. 

We are sorry that we've had to take this action, but we have a duty to protect our staff.

If you visited the practice on Friday 8th July and think you may have seen anything suspicious, please give us a call on 0121 693 5777.

Accessible Information Standard

It is our intention to be compliant with the above standard as by 31st July 2016, or as soon as NHS England make the relevant materials available to aid compliance.

Bowel Cancer Screening

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK.  Over 90% who are diagnosed at the earliest stage are successfully treated.  To detect cases of bowel cancer sooner, the NHS offers bowel cancer screening to all men and women aged 60 to 74 years.

Taking part in screening takes little time and is done in the privacy of your own home. 

The following short video gives a step by step explanation about how to use your screening test kit.  You can also contact us on 0121 693 5777 to speak to one of our practice nurses if you need any help or advice about the bowel screening process.

Follow this link to find out more about bowel cancer and the importance of early diagnosis.
