FLU & COVID BOOSTER CLINICS

FLU - We are now holding flu clinics on Saturday 25th of September (FULL) and Saturday 16th October (SPACES LEFT).  If you are eligible for the flu vaccination then please contact us to book an appointment.  Once we have completed the clinics we will assess our numbers and put on further clinics accordingly.  Please remember that social distancing measures will be in place which may mean that you are queuing outside for a while; and that face coverings must be worn. 

COVID BOOSTERS - There has been a significant delay in providing these as we have been waiting for further instructions from NHSE, but plans are now under way to start organising these clinics.  There must be a six month gap between your 2nd and 3rd vaccination so we will contact you once we are up and running; and when our records indicate that you are at a time when you can receive your 3rd dose.  This will be the Pfizer vaccine and no other brands are available at this point in time.  In order to minimise disruption to our weekly commitments we are hoping to run these clinics in the same way that we have run Saturday flu clinics, but are mindful that there must be a 15 minute-wait after receiving the vaccination; which means we will be running at a much slower rate for this than we do during the flu clinics. Please bear with us whilst we try and work out the best way to run these clinics in a safe and protected way.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING FACE COVERINGS

As you may be aware, the Government guidelines regarding the wearing of face coverings will be changing on the 19th of July 2021.  We have decided to keep our practice policy in place and ask that all patients and staff continue to wear face coverings whilst in our building.  For the full statement please see our 'News' section.  

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

08/07/21 - Moving forward.

• General practice is still open, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact your GP surgery will be different at the moment.

• Your NHS services have a range of measures in place to keep you safe from COVID19 including regular cleaning of patient areas and social distancing. Please ensure you wear a face covering to your appointment.

• Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients where there is a clinical need. You will be asked to first discuss your conditions over the phone or online with a member of the healthcare team to assess what would be most appropriate for you and which practice member would best provide it.

• Most GP practices are also offering online consultations and video consultations, as well as telephone consultations. These can be convenient and flexible ways to receive healthcare. Where patients need to be seen by a health professional face-to-face, this will be arranged. If you have a preference about how to access care you can discuss it with your practice.

• General practice continues to offer care based on clinical need.

• General practice continues to offer cervical smears and childhood immunisations.

Please be polite and respectful, your GP and practice team are available and working hard to support you, your family and friends health and care needs.

• Visit the local pharmacy for clinical advice on minor health concerns

How to book an appointment with the Doctor..

(this info is not currently applicable due to covid)

Our current booking system has a small percentage of appointments with the Doctor which are available to book online from 7.00am onwards and the other appointments  will be released at 8.00am. 

This is following feedback from our patients that are, for instance, working or getting children ready, etc and are unable to contact us at 8.00am.  We will monitor this to see how it works and appreciate any further feedback. If you are not registered for online booking then please call in the surgery with photo ID.

The majority of Doctors appointments are now available to 'book on the day.' There are routine, urgent and also telephone appointments with the GP. This should help to ensure you can be seen if you are unwell.  Please note that the receptionist will ask for a brief outline of the problem and this is to make sure we can direct you to the best person to deal with the problem. This may be a Doctor or it could be the Nurse or even your local pharmacy?

There are a limited amount of routine appointments to book in advance.

How to book: Telephone the surgery at 8am. Why not sign up for online access so you can book your own appointment online from 7am/8am on the day, or if you live nearby - you could come in to the surgery at 8am and book to come back and see the GP later.
