Welcome to

Dr Rizvi & Partners

Over the years many doctors and supporting staff have served the local community  from this building. The health centre  houses  2 GP Partnerships, Treatment Room , 1 Dental Practice, Health Visitors, Community nurses and Chiropodists. 

The doctors work with practice nurses, district nurses, receptionists, health visitors, chiropodists and as a primary health care team and provide a personal service and quality care for around 8,000 people in Laindon, Langdon Hills and surrounding areas. 

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

Closure of Practice List

We would like to inform patients that the practice has decided to temporarily close our patient list.

This means that we will not be accepting new patient registrations until further notice.

This has become necessary due to recent staff changes in our Practice and at Laindon Health Centre, over the last couple of years, which has had an impact on our day to day work looking after our registered patients, which is something that we take very seriously.

In order to continue to provide a good quality service we felt  that we had no option other than to take action to manage our patient list size.

After discussion with NHS England and Local Medical Committee representatives, we have opted for temporary list closure and so the list will remain closed until further notice.

 FLU VACCINATION

In line with Public Health advice the Practice would encourage all patients in “At Risk” groups to have Influenza Vaccination.

 

Sadly, despite our best efforts in previous years, Influenza Vaccination rates have not always been at the level we would wish.

 

Flu is a very unpleasant condition and we would therefore urge all patients in the “At Risk” groups listed below, particularly patients who have not had vaccination in previous years, to have the Vaccine this year.

 

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  ( please ask regarding these at reception)
  • are very overweight
  • 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 
  • are a healthcare worker with direct patient contact, or a social care worker

 If you are in any of these categories and wish flu vaccination, please come to the Treatment Room where our Nurses will be happy to give you the Vaccination- no appointment is required.

 

Thank- you for your co-operation

A&E Departments

 

There are over 21 million attendances at accident and emergency (A&E) departments each year.

A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for life-threatening emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness
  • acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
  • persistent, severe chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • severe bleeding that cannot be stopped

If an ambulance is needed, call 999, the emergency phone number in the UK. You can also dial 112, which is the ambulance number throughout the European Union.

Major A&E departments offer access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, although not all hospitals have an A&E department. At A&E a doctor or nurse will assess your condition and decide on further action.

If it is not an immediate emergency, call NHS 111. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can provide medical advice and advise you on the best local service to offer the care you need.

Less severe injuries can be treated in minor injuries units (MIUs) and NHS walk-in centres (WICs), which can treat patients without an appointment.

For illnesses that are not life-threatening you should first contact your GP surgery. Outside of normal surgery hours you can still phone your GP, but you will usually be directed to an out-of-hours service. The out-of-hours period is from 6.30pm to 8am on weekdays, and all day at weekends and on bank holidays. During out-of-hours periods you can also call NHS 111.
