INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

We are commited to keeping our most vulnerable patients and staff as safe as possible, therefore we have suspended all routine face-to-face GP appointment bookings. If you have not spoken to a doctor please do not attend the surgery.

If you are asked to attend the surgery you MUST wear a mask or other face covering. Please note we are unable to provide these for you.

In line with the latest advice, if you have a high temperature, new, continuous cough or a loss of taste or smell you should self-isolate for a period of 10 days. There is no need to contact either the surgery or NHS111.

Winter flu vaccinations 2020

The flu vaccination is the best protection for you and those around you which is why it is offered for free for those most at risk.
Vaccinations started in September and continue over the winter months, with appointments available throughout the season (so there is still plenty of time to book). Priority is given to those who are most at risk of flu. GP practices and pharmacies receive phased deliveries of the vaccine and flu clinics are scheduled to coincide with these deliveries. By staggering appointments over the winter months, we can help protect as many people as possible from flu.
Please note that if you are aged between 50 and 64 and are not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. Thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and cooperation.
If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical at risk group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier. Please contact us for more information or visit your local community pharmacy.
If you are a household member or a carer of a shielded patient, you are eligible for the flu vaccination. Please contact us for more information or visit your local community pharmacy.
For parents / carers of two and three year olds, you should receive an invitation for your child to have the vaccination before the winter. If you have not heard by early November, contact the practice directly to make an appointment.
For primary school-aged children and those in Year 7 at secondary school, a vaccination session will be held at school during the autumn term. Your local healthcare team will contact you via the school.

We are currently accepting new NHS patients, to register with us there are two forms you need to complete. Please download the forms listed above or drop into the surgery to get a copy. Once complete please return these to reception, please note registration takes one week. If you require treatment on a more urgent basis then please inform the receptionist.

Where necessary we will require documentary evidence to support a registration request (see ‘Entitlement to Register’ below).  All patients registering with the Practice have a right to express a preference for a male or female practitioner and will be asked to indicate their preference on the registration form. We will also ask patients to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for a New Registration Examination. During this examination, the nurse will carry out full health screening i.e. blood pressure, height, weight, and, past and present medical history. Please Note:  Medical cards are not issued routinely. Thames Valley Primary Care Agency will only issue medical cards if a request is made in writing (see ‘Useful Telephone Numbers’).

Entitlement to Register

Patients will be entitled to register as an NHS patient and to receive free care if they:

  • are 'ordinarily resident' in the UK with a 'settled purpose', or
  • present an E128 valid for treatment in the UK, or
  • present an E112 which relates to the same treatment as required by the patient, or
  • are a refugee who has been given leave to remain in the UK or are awaiting the results of their application to remain in the UK or
  • are a resident of a European Economic Area country and has an EHIC card (European Health Insurance Card).

Even if a patient is not entitled to register as a permanent patient, the Practice will provide any patient with free health care if the treatment required is:

  • immediately required as a result of an accident or emergency, or
  • is essential treatment which cannot reasonably be delayed until the patient returns to their home country, or
  • is required as a result of a condition which has been exacerbated during the patients stay in the UK

Patients who do not fall into any of the above categories will not be entitled to free healthcare. However, the Practice may be able to offer treatment on a private basis.
