LIFTING OF RESTRICTIONS

 

Please be aware that Southmead Surgery’s policy on face coverings and social distancing will remain unchanged from 19th July despite the general relaxation of rules.  This is in keeping with all other healthcare organisations.  We will expect all patients to continue to wear a facemask when coming to the surgery unless you have a medical exemption. We will continue to triage all consultations on the phone throughout the summer and arrange to see patients face to face as clinically appropriate. Thank you for your understanding

COVID 19 Vaccine 

 

UPDATED 25/05/21 - This morning we held our final COVID Vaccination Clinic. We have given 4,551 vaccines. We would like to thank all our staff for the extra time they have given and to all the volunteers who have helped us, with transporting patients and help at Chalfont. Without you all it would not have been possible.
Regarding certificates or evidence about your COVID vaccination status.

 

We are unable to issue this certificate at the practice.

 

Please see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad for further information.

 

Proof of your vaccination status will be available in the NHS app from 17th May 2021 and in some of the other apps that provide you with Patient online services. 

 

The NHSapp can be downloaded from:
https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/nhs-app/id1388411277 for iPhone/iOS
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhs.online.nhsonline for Android.

 

If you have not used it before, there is a self-registration process within the app to create an "NHS login" as per https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/nhs-log-in/

 

If you already have access/ login details for patient online services, for example "Patient Access", you may use this.

 

Alternatively, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine.  The letter may to take another 5 days to reach you, or more if postal services are affected.  Please take account of this when making your plans.

It is with regret that we have to publish the statement below:

Southmead Surgery is committed to doing everything possible to protect staff, patients and visitors from unacceptable behaviour, and has a 'zero tolerance' attitude of any incident that causes hurt, alarm, or distress.

Our practice staff are here to help you. Shouting or swearing or use of abusive or offensive language at practice staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Patients who are abusive will be removed from the practice list and will have to register with another GP Practice.

Furthermore, the practice will not hesitate to take legal action or inform the police whenever it is appropriate to do so.

The whole of the NHS, and especially GP surgeries are working under unprecedented levels of patient demand and expectation. We hope that patients will agree that our staff are our most valuable asset, and that verbal abuse or aggression is unacceptable.

Thank you very much in anticipation of your understanding.
