Flu 2021-22

Seqirus who manufacture the flu vaccine suitable for patients over the age of 65, have hit some “unforeseen freight challenges” and will now not be able to meet targets for delivery of the vaccine around the country.  This is a national problem, not just affecting our surgery.  We are expecting further news in the next week or so to give us a revised delivery schedule, but it is likely to delay receipt of the vaccine until end of September/early October.   We also still do not have any information on delivery of any Covid vaccinations either.

We will update our patients as soon as we possibly can.

Strategy

We endeavour to: -

  • Provide an environment which is clean, safe, and conducive to high quality patient care;
  • Provide urgent appointments that enable patients, as a minimum, to talk to a clinician on the day.
  • Offer patients, with long term conditions a management plan, to ensure that their reviews and medication are managed effectively;
  • Ensure that all staff take part in Continuous Professional Development, ensuring we practice in accordance with national guidelines
  • Ensure your prescription when already on "repeat" is ready for collection with 48 hours or where there is an issue contact you to advise of any delay;
  • Respond quickly and pro-actively to any concerns you may have about the service you receive from us.
  • To ensure we safeguard your medical records and we will not share any of your information held at the practice without your consent. We comply with the Data Protection Act.
  • To continue to treat each patient as an individual and be sensitive to their needs without any prejudice.
  • To work closely with our Patient participation Group to ensure we are responsive to our population needs. Our PPG has established the Home Alone Project, a befriending volunteer group.


The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
