Flu Season 2020
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups 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.
We are aware that employers are requesting medical certificates for patients who are self-isolating due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please see attached a letter which you can download and provide to your employer explaining the current situation.
Langdon Hills Medical Practice is supporting vital COVID 19 research. As part of this, we are helping to carry out a national priority research study called PRINCIPLE.
If you have symptoms of COVID 19, are aged 65 or over, OR are aged 50-64 and have an existing health condition, you may be eligible to join this important study.
If you'd like to discuss taking part in PRINCIPLE, please contact us.
Please see www.phctrials.ox.ac.uk/principle-trial for full details of this study.
If you'd like to know more about COVID 19 research and how you can contribute, please visit the Be Part of Research site, www.bepartofresearch.nihr.ac.uk, which is run by the National Institute for Health Research.
LANGDON HILLS MEDICAL CENTRE/SOUTHVIEW PARK SURGERY
Langdon Hills Medical Centre/Southview Park Surgery would like to invite you to join DoctorLink.
We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can:
- Access advice
- Book appointments online
- Request Repeat Prescriptions
- Request Fit/Sick Notes
Sign-up is simple and you can create an account here
For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom assessment will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.
The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self-care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at your GP practice, you simply click on the “request an appointment” button.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
With immediate effect All booked appointments with a doctor have been changed to telephone consultations.
The GP cannot guarantee a time for the call but will endeavour to be as close to your original appointment time as possible. If the GP feels you need to be seen then an appointment will be made for you.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS A GP HAS TOLD YOU TO DO SO.
Telephone appointments can only be booked via the receptionists on the telephone.
When ordering your medication please nominate a pharmacy so that your prescriptions can be sent electronically and you can collect directly from them.
Thank you for your co-operation and understanding. These changes to our normal procedures have been taken in the interest of both patients and staff.
