National Influenza Immunisation Programme 2021/22

We are now able to book appointments for children aged 2 and 3 years (on 31st August 2021) to have a Nasal Flu please call reception to make an appointment with one of our Practice Nurses.

We are also now inviting anybody aged 50 or above or in one of the ‘at risk’ groups to book their Influenza Vaccination by calling their practice and making an appointment.

Non-urgent blood tests (01/09/21)

Due to a global shortage of tubes used to conduct blood tests, your GP may ask you to postpone non-urgent or routine tests if it is clinically safe to do so.

Your GP practice will let you know if you are affected and will inform you when your test will be rescheduled.

This situation is affecting all GP surgeries and hospitals, including Accident & Emergency departments.

People who require urgent or essential tests will not be affected and should continue to seek care when they need it.

 

Visiting Your GP

From Monday 17 May patients will be able to get COVID Vaccine passport

either on NHS APP or by ringing 119 to get an NHS Letter.
Demonstrating COVID-19 status

Individuals in England who have had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine can now get proof of their vaccination details and demonstrate their COVID-19 status for international travel using the NHS COVID Pass.

There are 3 options to demonstrate COVID-19 status: via the NHS App (if you have full access to the App and are registered at a GP surgery), through NHS.UK and by letter from the 119 telephone service.

Recording overseas vaccinations 

Currently there is not a central mechanism for capturing details of overseas COVID-19 vaccines, and only vaccines delivered in the UK can be accepted as evidence for UK COVID certification/ the NHS COVID Pass.

A technical solution to support the recording of vaccinations overseas in the National Immunisation Management System (NIMS) is in development, and we will provide an update as soon as possible. 

Patients should be told that at this time, only vaccines delivered in the UK will count towards UK COVID certification and that the NHS is working on a solution.

COVID-19 booster vaccination campaign

Jabs will be offered to the over 50s, health and care workers and younger adults with certain health conditions. Those eligible should receive a booster at least six months after their second dose.  Please wait to be invited.

Information regarding immunisations and 8 week baby checks

We are maintaining our immunisation programme. 

Please book appointments for all routine childhood immunisations; from birth to preschool children. Also, pertussis vaccination in pregnancy.

Public Health England have stressed how important it is to maintain immunisation services to reduce the serious risk of vaccine-preventable diseases.

Please contact the surgery on 0208 876 3901 Sheen Lane or 0208 876 4442 Kew to book an appointment with our Practice Nurse for immunisations and for the 8 week baby check please book an appointment with a doctor.

Covid-19 Advice

If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature and/or anosmia (a loss of or change in your normal sense of smell or taste), you are advised to stay at home for 7 days. Do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice. If you live with other people, they should also stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home.

If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.

Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or cannot go online.

For the latest COVID-19 advice please visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.

Appointments

We are now able to offer both Face to Face and Telephone appointments. Please DO NOT attend the surgery if you have any symptoms relating to Coronavirus.

Prescription Requests

Going forward we would ask you to either request your prescriptions on line via Patient Services (if you are not already signed up for this service please speak to a member of our reception team) alternatively please ask your local pharmacy to request medication on your behalf.
