Flu clinics 2021/22

We wanted to let you know about our forthcoming flu clinics. Adult flu immunisation will be at the Pitstone pavillion to allow for a one way flow of patients and good social distancing.
We had planned to invite both those aged over and under 65 to these clinics, but we have had a message this morning to tell us that the vaccine for our over 65 year old patients (as of the 1st April 2022) will be delayed. So unfortunately we will only be able to immunise those under 65 years of age until we get supplies of vaccine-
 
We don't have specific information about coivd booster doses yet. If it's at all possible we aim to give patients eligible for both flu and covid booster the immunisations at the same time - until the JCVI advise us what to do we can't make firm plans but we are as prepared as we can be to act and release clinics once the advice is published.
As we all had reduced social contact in the last flu season all the predictions and early indicators are that we are likely to have high circulating levels of flu and respiratory illness this Winter so we are keen to get all our eligible patients immunised as soon as we possibly can, we have reserved a dose for everyone who had a flu jab last year.
Please try not to call reception about this - we will update the information on our facebook site and out website as soon as the information is released to us.

Changes to rules on wearing Facemasks - NHS guidelines

As we have so many vulnerable patients  in our buildings we will still expect anyone coming to our practices to wear masks unless they are medically exempt. We will be making some more face to face appointments pre-bookable and are planning these carefully to allow patients to remain socially distanced in our waiting rooms. Thank you for helping us in this

We are planning our Influenza  vaccination programme for this Autumn.

The Department of Health has indicated in the last week that  they are hoping to offer patients a covid vaccine booster dose at the same time as receiving the flu vaccine.

At present we are waiting for clarification as to how this will work in practice.

Further updates will follow once we have more information.

Covid Vaccinations After 6 successful months of providing over 60,000 Covid Vaccinations from our GP led vaccination clinic at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, the final clinic took place on Saturday 19th June.

 

We can no longer assist with any further questions or queries regarding Covid Vaccination Appointments. Covid Vaccination Appointments can only be booked by calling 119 or online Book or manage your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

 

We are aware that 119 may direct you back to your GP Surgery for help. We have no access to any further vaccine supplies or appointments at other sites so unfortunately we will not be able to help. You will need to use the national booking line 119 or go on-line for further help.

 

If you have a query concerning a vaccine that was given at the Stoke Mandeville Site from 15th Jan to 19th June 2021, please email the details to sms.vaccinations@nhs.net and a member of our admin team will be in touch.

Following Government guidance and to help protect our patients and the Surgery staff from the COVID –19 (Corona virus) outbreak we have changed the way that we are providing appointments.

This will mean that all appointments will now be triaged by a Clinician. If you call to re-quest an appointment the Reception staff will add your name to the triage list with a short statement about your reason for calling. This is to ensure that the more urgent calls are answered first by one of the Clinicians.

After a phone consultation you may still be asked to come for a face-to-face appointment if this is required.

Please only come to the Surgery if you have an appointment  or to pick up medications, forms / letters, or specimen bottles .

Our surgeries

The practice began in Dr Jones' home on 1.2.1985. As the patient numbers grew, it progressed to the two purpose built premises, which opened in Pitstone on 1.7.1991 and Edlesborough on 1.4.1992. Today the practice is continuing to grow and develop and currently we have just over 7500 patients.

Medicine

When ordering medicines please be aware: As a practice we are almost 10% overspent on our drug budget- this makes us the worst in Buckinghamshire - this cannot carry on and so we ask for your understanding that we cannot provide prescriptions for medicines available to buy from a pharmacy. This includes seasonal allergies such as hayfever, indigestion remedies, treatments for worms and headlice. Also if you are given a hospital prescription you MUST please take this to the hospital pharmacy.
