In line with the Government's announcement, the NHS is aiming to offer every adult the chance to book a COVID-19 booster vaccine by the end of the year.
If you are eligible for your booster vaccination, please do not contact the practice as we need to keep our phone lines free for those who are trying to book GP appointments. We will contact you about your booster jab or alternatively you can visit nhs.uk/covid-vaccine or call 119 to arrange your appointment. There is lots of demand for appointments so if you can't find a slot at a suitable clinic, please keep checking back as appointments are updated regularly.
If you need to register yourself or someone you care for as housebound to make sure they receive their booster jab, please do contact your GP practice.
If you have Covid-19 symptoms and want to book in for a test, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test . Thank you for your understanding.
THE SURGERY WILL BE CLOSED FOR STAFF TRAINING ON THURSDAY 27th JANUARY 2022 BETWEEN 12.30 PM AND 4.30 PM - If you need to speak to a clinician during this time, please call NHS111. If you are experiencing a life threatening episode then please call 999 or go to A&E. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you
From 19th July 2021, England's Covid-19 legislation will change.
From this date we will continue to follow Government legislation and, in addition, will align our guidance on the use of facemasks to the advice given by Professor Chris Whitty, England's Chief Medical Officer.
Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more control measures than other public facilities. We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining:
- Social distancing
- Face coverings
- PPE for healthcare staff
Sir Patrick Vallance, Chief Scientist, endorsed Professor Whitty's guidelines adding: "Masks are most effective at preventing somebody else catching the disease from you, and they have some effect to prevent you catching it".
The Delta variant is much more transmissible, and patients may come to the surgery when they are contagious. It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care.
If you have any symptoms such as a temperature, loss of taste or smell, or a cough, or any symptoms of the Delta variant that have been described as a runny nose, sore throat, headache or sickness, then stay at home, get a PCR test and follow the Government guidelines: coronavirus(COVID-19):guidance and support - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
*** Appointments Update ***
For urgent on the day problems, we are offering a telephone triage service and we will offer a face-to-face appointment if clinically necessary. For routine problems, if you feel this needs to be face-to-face with a GP please discuss this with the receptionist.
Our nursing team are carrying out telephone, video and face-to-face appointments where necessary.
If you have an appointment with or need to attend Hama Medical Centre it is important that you wear a face covering at all times. This is for your safety and the safety of other patients and staff.
Face coverings can be cloth and they can be homemade. Advice on how to wear and make one is on the Government website. Face coverings worn as part of religious beliefs or cultural practice are also acceptable, providing they are not loose and cover the mouth and nose.
