Flu vaccinations



Following unprecedented demand, there is a national shortage of flu vaccinations.


Holt Medical Practice has been affected by the shortage, and has put in place a priority system to ensure patients most at risk are still able to receive a vaccination.


Until a new supply arrives, vaccinations will be reserved for patients with certain conditions for example:




some chronic heart conditions

and pregnant women


If you are unsure if you fall into one of these groups please ask at reception.


All patients can still enquire at high street pharmacies to see if they have any vaccinations available. 

Coming soon: Improved Access

North Norfolk Primary Care is an alliance of GP surgeries in North Norfolk and Broadland. The Improved Access scheme is part of the NHS' GP Forward View commitment to offer GP services at evenings and weekends.


Regular closures for staff training

From April 2018, Holt Medical Practice will be closing once a month for 2 hours for staff training.

During this time, urgent calls will be answered by Medicom for urgent medical advice. This means that patients will be unable to come into the surgery for enquiries or to collection medication.


Reminders will be posted at all three surgeries in advance of each date.


Closures will take place during the first week of the month, on alternate Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Holt Medical Practice will close between 12:30 and 14:30.

Melton Constable and Blakeney will both close at 12:00; on Wednesdays Melton Constable will reopen at 15:00.

Enriched Summary Care Record

The Summary Care Record is a system used by NHS healthcare professionals to share information which can be used if you need to access healthcare services anywhere in the country.


The basic Summary Care Record shows a list of your allergies and medication issues. All patients automatically have a SCR unless they have specifically opted out.


The enriched/enhanced Summary Care Record (eSCR) provides a lot more information in a read-only format, very similar to the information the GPs can see about you in the surgery. Details of your signficant past medical history including dates may be useful to your care either at A&E or even another GP surgery when you are a temporary resident. The eSCR operates on an opt-in basis.


If you are interested in activating your eSCR to support your healthcare please read the leaflet here, and speak to a member of the Reception team.

Holt Area Patient Participation Group

Click on the HAPPG menu on the left to see a recent update from the group. (January 2018)

Have we got your mobile number?

Did you know that we can automatically send out confirmation text messages for appointments up to 7 days beforehand, and reminder messages the day before?


If you are unable to attend an appointment, you can reply to the message (using just the word CANCEL) at any time of day, and your appointment will be automatically cancelled. This could save you a telephone call, and make the appointment available for another patient to take up.


If you do not want to receive appointment reminder text messages, but you still want us to have your number, please speak to a Receptionist who can apply a block.

Signposting - November 2017

Member Practices of North Norfolk CCG are undertaking a month long Signposting pilot. The Reception Team is trained to advise patients on seeking support from alternative organisations, such as dentists and pharmacies, before seeing a doctor or nurse for certain problems. When telephoning the surgery to make an appointment, you may be asked for the nature of the problem.

For more information about signposting, click here to see a short video explaining what it means.


When you visit the surgery you will see posters similar to the one below - are you using the right healthcare service for your needs?
