23rd Feb 2021 PATIENT NOTICE: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccination
We are currently working through our priority cohort as per National directives to vaccinate our patients those are most at risk from coronavirus. If you are eligible you will be contacted by your surgery or NHS.
URGENT PATIENT NOTICE:
If you need to contact the practice please DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have been advised to attend or you need to collect or hand something to us. Until further notice please phone the surgery for all enquiries.
Important Patient Information about Appointments
As you will be aware, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a new illness that is spreading across the UK. As such, our practice is taking action to protect our patients, our staff and our community by introducing a telephone triage system for GP appointments. Our aim is to significantly reduce the footfall through our surgery in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, in line with national guidance.
All GP appointments will initially be on the telephone. If you have an appointment booked with a GP, please do not come to the surgery – please stay at home and the doctor will call you at the allocated time. The GP will do all they can to help you over the phone – however, should they feel the need to see you face to face for an examination, you will be invited to the surgery for review.
Nursing appointments will continue as planned but we ask you to consider the national guidance before visiting the practice https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Children's Flu Immunisation Survey
Are you a parent of a child aged between 2 and 11 years old living in Slough? If so, your local NHS would appreciate your help in completing a short survey on the flu. Please click on the following link to complete - https://bit.ly/2SSELSo.
Each year, the NHS works closely partnership with others to try and protect people from flu, especially those more at risk of developing serious complications such as people aged 65 and over; pregnant women; and young children. These groups are all eligible for a free flu vaccination on the NHS. Whilst the uptake of the flu vaccine is generally good in many of the groups and in line with national averages, Slough has always seen a lower uptake of the children’s flu immunisation than other local areas. Despite local efforts to address this, there have been no significant changes over the years. The short survey has been designed to help the partnership understand the potential reasons behind there being a lower uptake locally.
