Noticeboard

FLU

We are now taking bookings for flu vaccination. Please contact a member of the reception team if you are aged 65 and over or are between 18 and 64 and are routinely offered the flu vaccination.

Pregnant ladies and carers are also eligible please make contact to book.

Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine.  No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group 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. 

Urgent Treatment Centre at Wycombe Hospital

The Urgent Treatment Centre at Wycombe Hospital, which is open 8am-8pm every day and measures are in place for patient safety.   To pre-book an appointment, call 111 or use 111 online, for injuries and illness concerns. Some walk-in patients will be accepted, but you are asked to call 111 to make sure you’re directed to the most appropriate place for your care.

Patient Group Survey 2020-21

The PPG have completed the annual patient survey. Please see link below for the annual report.

Named Accountable GP

From the 1st of April 2015, practices are required under the GMS contract to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients (including children).

 

All patients who were on the practice list prior to the 1st of April 2015 have since been allocated a named accountable GP, as at the 30th of June 2015. Patients have been notified of their allocated named GP via text message and opportunistically when attending the surgery. If you are not aware which GP you have been allocated too, please ask a member of our reception team who will provide you with this information.

 

All new patients who register with the practice after the 1st of April 2015 will be allocated their named accountable GP within 21 days of registration.

The named accountable GP will take lead responsibility for the coordination of all services required under the GMS contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP)

Please be aware this allocation does NOT stop you from seeing any of the GPs at the practice.

In the event that a patient confirms they do not want a named accountable GP, the practice will record this information in the patient record; the requirement to allocate a named accountable GP will therefore not apply. In addition any patient who expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.

Update: As at the 31st of March 2016 all patients registered at The John Hampden Surgery have been allocated and informed of the associated named GP in accordance with the GMS contact.
