With patient’s needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to help you find the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find resources on cancer screening, links to a number of diverse support organisations or you can visit the self help page where you can even make your own referals directly to some specialist services.

A Mindfulness Course is being offered to all patients at the Surgery

8 week programme in building wellbeing and resilience through mindfulness practices.

Led by an experienced mindfulness teacher, David Bush.  

Starting on 11th October on Monday evenings from 7.30 to 9pm, with half term break.

Limited Blood Testing Appointments

There is currently an international supply issue with blood tubes. With only limited amount of supplies available this will mean that certain blood tests will have to be prioritised at this time.

We are still encouraging all our patients who require regular blood tests because of their medication (for e.g. methotrexate, azathioprine) to continue doing so. If you are struggling to book a blood test appointment please arrange it with Winchester hospital

 

Flu Vaccinations

Our 2021 flu vaccinations clinics will start from 18th September and run on Saturdays until the end of October. These clinics will be held at both Park Surgery and St Francis Surgery. All eligible patients will be sent a text message, letter or email asking them to book their appointment using the NHS App.

Please can we ask you not to contact the surgery. We will send you the times our dedicated phone line for vaccinations will be open.

There are two options for flu vaccination appointments: all patients aged 65 years+ OR patients aged 18-64 years.

 

Covid 19 and Vaccination Information

We are still maintaining social distancing, face masks and hand sanitising and therefore request that patients attend on the day at the time given and come suitably dressed to allow access to the top of an arm.

Please help us reduce the impact of the next Covid-19 wave by booking your vaccination with us.

Please ensure your contact details are up to date, mobile numbers and e-mail are especially useful, since they allow us to reduce our carbon footprint, cut down the practice running costs - as well as improve our efficency in organising your care.

Everyone eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine who has not yet received the jab is urged to do so as soon as possible to protect themselves, loved ones and our communities against the virus.

If you are aged over 16, you are now able to book your vaccination using the NHS App, or by calling our vaccination booking hotline 02380 240980. (lines are open Monday-Friday 08.30-12.00).

Please do not contact the GP surgery about COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing a person’s COVID-19 vaccination status.

 

Demonstrating COVID-19 vaccination status

Anyone living in England can now get their proof of COVID-19 vaccination status through the NHS App.

You can also call 119 to request a letter of proof of Covid-19 vaccination status.

 

Effectiveness of vaccinations against the Delta variant

Vaccine effectiveness against the COVID-19 variant first identified in India (now known as Delta) is similar after two doses when compared to the variant first identified in Kent (now known as Alpha), a recent study by Public Health England has shown.

The first dose of the vaccines offer good levels of protection, but to get maximum protection everyone will need a second dose. If you have been invited to receive a vaccine, please book your appointment as soon as possible.

 

Access to NHS services

You can now use NHS App online to access services on your computer, as well as your smart-phone or tablet.

This service allows you to:

  • Book and manage appointments at your GP surgery
  • Order repeat prescriptions
  • Get health information and advice
  • View your medical record securely
  • Demonstrate you Covid-19 vaccination status
