Public Health Alert
PCN Event February 2020
You may have heard that the surgery has joined with 4 others* to form the Mid Chiltern Primary Care Network. We are inviting you to the launch of the network at 7pm on Wednesday 26th February. It will be at the Misbourne School on the edge of Great Missenden – HP16 0BN.
This will be an opportunity for you to hear about the new network and what it will mean for you. For example, the PCN now has a clinical pharmacist and a social prescriber, shared between the five surgeries and both of them will be at the meeting. In future years the aim is for the PCN to have extra posts, such as a physician associate, a physiotherapist and a paramedic.
The speakers will include the two clinical directors of the new network: Dr Clare Gabe from Amersham Health Centre and Dr Shaheen Jinah from Hughenden Valley/Chequers.
If you would like to come, please email email@example.com . We cannot guarantee everyone will get a place, because we want to make sure that there is a fair spread of patients from all five surgeries and the network caters for more than 40,000 patients. We will let you know as soon as possible if your request has been successful – the event will only be open to these patients. If the event is very over-subscribed, we may hold a second one. Also, after the event, the patient groups at all the surgeries will make available information from the launch.
If you would like to discover more about primary care networks in the meantime, we suggest you start with the Q+A briefing from Healthwatch Bucks at https://tinyurl.com/qmuvk8d .
All the best

We regretfully announce the departure of our GP partner, Dr Hodder from the 31st of December 2019.
Since joining the practice almost 10 years ago, Dr Hodder has been a valuable member of our team and contributed to our successes over the years. She has recently been offered an exciting opportunity to become a GP trainer, an opportunity that unfortunately is not available at John Hampden Surgery and we fully support her decision to pursue this new chapter in her career.
Dr Hodder will be deeply missed from our practice team but we wish her every success in her new role!
Following Dr Hodder’s departure the practice are pleased to announce the arrival of our new GP partner, Dr Payne who will start with us from the 1st of January 2020.
Many patients may recognise Dr Payne as our regular Locum who we have worked closely with over the last 10 years and this new partnership feels like a natural step for our practice.
We are all looking forward to this new chapter for The John Hampden Surgery and hope patients will support Dr Payne as she eases into her new role here at the practice.
