Reopening of Lytham Primary Care Centre

Please note we are in the process of returning to business as usual at Lytham Primary Care Centre. 

Following the announcement earlier this week about a temporary closure of Lytham Primary Care Centre, we can now confirm the building has reopened.

Small amounts of legionella – a bacteria commonly found in natural water sources and in purpose-built water systems – were discovered during routine testing of the building’s water supply.

Cleaning work has been completed and there is no risk to patient or staff safety.

Due to ongoing repairs, there will be NO patient welfare facilities within the building for the next 14 days.

Alternative facilities are available in the form of portable toilets located on the car park.

The Partners at Holland House Surgery and Fernbank Surgery thank residents for their support and understanding and apologise for any inconvenience that has been caused.

Temporary closure of Lytham Primary Care Centre

Due to an issue with the water supply system, Lytham Primary Care Centre has had to close.

Repairs are being carried out and it is anticipated the building will reopen next week.

Some appointments have had to be rearranged and all patients affected have been notified.

Anyone needing to book an appointment with Holland House Surgery should continue to do so as normal, however you may be seen at an alternative site or be spoken to over the phone.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank all patients for their continued support and patience.

Windmill Pharmacy remains open as normal, however it can only be accessed by the side door and not via the main building entrance.

World Immunisation Week (24-30 April)

With one in ten children in England not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April), the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.

In particular, the NHS is asking all parents to check if their children are up to date with their MMR vaccines to protect them against measles, mumps and rubella. To become fully protected children need two doses, the first at age one year and the second at 3 years 4 months.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) have predicted a rise in measles cases across Europe in 2023, making it is more important than ever to make sure that your child is fully protected. Measles can make a child seriously unwell and can lead to pneumonia with rare long-lasting conditions such as blindness and brain damage.

To make sure your children are up to date check your child’s red book or GP records and make an appointment to catch up any missed doses.

End abuse in GP Practices

This video shows just some of the abuse that is commonly experienced by staff working in GP practices across the country and unfortunately this includes the staff at Holland House. The problem has got much worse during the pandemic as the pressures on primary care services have increased. We are suffering from unprecedented levels of demand at the moment and are doing our best to respond as quickly and efficiently as we can whilst maintaining a safe service for all of our patients.

The surgery has a zero tolerance approach to abuse directed at it’s employees and if you do make comments or behave like this, then you can expect the practice to follow this up with you.

We would much prefer to encourage everyone to be kind and caring towards each other.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
