COVID 19 VACCINE
Please do not contact the surgery about the covid-19 vaccine. NHS England are still in the planning stages of rolling this vaccine out. As soon as we have access to the vaccines, patients will be contacted to invite them to have the vaccination.
Following the government announcement that 50 to 64 year olds will be able receive a free flu vaccination from 1 December the practice is working to make this available to newly eligible patients as early in December as we can.
As soon as we have supplies of the vaccine available we will contact patients aged 50 to 64 to offer you an appointment. If you fall within this age group and are not in one of the eligible ‘at risk groups’ please do not contact the practice to book an appointment as we are not yet able offer you a definite date or time.
We are continuing to provide flu vaccinations to over 65s, under 65s with certain long-term medical conditions, pregnant women and young children. If you are in one of these eligible groups and have not yet had your flu vaccine please contact the practice as soon as possible to book an appointment.
We are please to announce that we have a new member of our team!
Jaffer is a very experienced clinical pharmacist and is supporting the GP's with medication/clinical reviews and follow ups.
UPDATED STATEMENT OF PURPOSE SOP
FLU VACCINATION CAMPAIGN
We are entering flu season and Covid-19 makes delivering the flu vaccinations more of a challenge. Our priority is rolling out the campaign in the safest and quickest way possible.
We have started our flu vaccination campaign. If you are eligible for a flu vaccination, the practice will contact you to book an appointment over the next few weeks.
We are prioritising those patients who are most at risk.
Please do not contact the surgery for an appointment, we will contact you.
Thank you for your ongoing support.

Please find the link below regarding an update to our privacy notice.
We are following the guidance and trying to reduce patient contact, so as of today we will be locking our doors to the surgery temporarily.
I understand that this will cause some concern but want to ensure you that we will still be providing our services to you but in a different way.
THIS IS TO PROTECT OUR STAFF AND PATIENTS
We need to provide a safe place for those patients that need to be seen face to face. We aim to do this by reducing footfall and triaging all our patients.
All GP consultations will be conducted via telephone or video call. Please call reception to book an appointment in the normal way or book online. If the GP feels that the consultation needs to be face to face they they will triage and book you into an appointment slot.
All prescriptions will be processed in the normal way. Please either request them online (https://www.patientaccess.com/) or put them through the letter box.
Phlebotomy service will be reserved for those that are clinically urgent
Nurse appointments will be assessed to see if they are clinically urgent and if so you will be seen. All non urgent requests will either be conducted remotely (if appropriate) or postponed to a more appropriate time
Please ensure your contact details (phone number/email address) are up to date
Please ensure you have nominated a chemist to have your prescription sent to
Please sign up for patient access, either via the NHSApp or Patient Access https://www.patientaccess.com/
Please rest assured that the Baldwins Lane Team are here for you during this challenging time and although our doors are closed our service to you will still continue throughout the coming weeks
We thank you for your understanding and patience at this difficult time
