A MESSAGE FOR OUR PATIENTS

In order to help our patients during this time we can offer the following advice when it comes to staying in contact with us. Any queries regarding medical conditions that require clinical contact or intervention must come through the correct channels so they can be dealt with appropriately and in a timely manner: 

 

*If you wish to submit photographs for your GP to view ahead of time and then contact you please use our eConsult system, found below. Only submit photographs via email if your GP has requested that you do so for clinical reasons or, to help with your consultation.  Include your Name and Date of Birth and the name of the GP who requested them.

As you will know, the COVID vaccination programme is underway and some of our patients have already been able to receive the jab at Fordingbridge Hospital. Our staff have been proud to be part of a huge local effort to protect so many people, so quickly.
 
Please be reassured that we will be in touch with you when it is your turn. We know many of you are keen to be vaccinated as soon as possible, but we must ask everyone to be patient - we are not holding reserve stocks of the vaccine and so cannot simply add in extra appointments. Calling or messaging the Practice will not get you an appointment more quickly, but it will take our Staff away from their other work.
 
The Government has said that the vaccination process will be a marathon, not a sprint. It will take time to protect everybody, but we will be in touch with you all as soon as we possibly can.
 
While you wait for you invitation please remember to do the basics to keep yourselves safe:
  • Wash your hands.
  • Cover your face.
  • Make space.

Any eConsult request you submit outside of our normal surgery opening hours will not be read by a doctor until we open the next working day. For example, if you submit your request on a Friday afternoon, this may not be actioned until the following Monday.
