NEWS NOVEMBER 2013
After a wonderful Guernsey summer the winds and the colder weather have returned. Flu clinics are running at all our three surgeries so book in and get covered. Islandhealth won the 'coveted' 10 pin bowling competition in 2013 and our Swimarathon team won the inter health competition beating the MSG and others for the most lapsdone and most money raised. Well done to the team. Next year Dr Hanna and Dr Sinnerton will be returning to the team so the mantle will be lost!
L'Aumone embraced the Bright tights day on the 1st of November and we hope to upload some photos in the future.
NEWS APRIL 2013
The flu season seems to be finally behind us but there are few signs of summer weather so far. The snow hit the island hard but thanks to all our dedicated staff we were able to keep open and provide a full service.
We have made a few additions to the website with a page showing our fees and we will be adding new pages where you can download relevant forms such as registration, travel etc.
We are delighted to welcome our new physiotherapist Jo Gould with her wealth of experience in female urinary as well as general physiotherapy.
Dr Baxendale has taken on the mantle of being not just our practice chairman but also chairman of the group that oversees the three practices on the island.
NEWS JUNE 2012
We are delighted to announce the appointment of two new partners in the practice. Dr Julia Rebstein and Dr Tom Littlefair are working for us at the moment and will be made partners in January 2013. Both are young and dynamic and we are getting nothing but positive feedback about them. Patients are free to register with them from now. (read their profiles under St Sampson's doctors)
Sadly though, we say goodbye to Dr Liz Norris who is returning home to the UK with her husband in September. Liz has been an excellent partner and teacher and friend and she will be sorely misssed. We wish her and Richard all the best.

Happy New Year to all our patients from all of us at Islandhealth!
Whilst it has been a mild winter so far we have still seen lots of tummy bugs and flu like illnesses. Obviously, not all of these can be prevented, however, if you are eligible for a flu jab then please contact us and arrange to have one. We do not write to eligible patients so do not wait for a letter. If you are over 65 or have asthma, diabetes etc then it is strongly advised to have an annual flu jab. If in doubt contact the surgery.
Many of you may be thinking of some summer (or winter!) sun. Remember to plan early regarding travel immunisations. Pick up a form and our highly trained travel nurse can work out exactly what you need. This dedicated service is run from our Town Surgery in Frances House.
Perhaps a few pounds were put on over the festive period? If you need help with weight loss then do arrange to see one of our nursing team for useful, proven and safe advice. De-toxing is all very well but there are risks as well as benefits- Ask us and we can help.
Hope you all keep healthy in 2012.
