COVID VACCINE NOTICE

We have slots available next week for first doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine. Please use the link you would have received via text to book. All over 38 year olds with mobile numbers have now been invited.

IF YOU ARE 40 OR OVER YOU CAN BOOK VIA THE NATIONAL BOOKING SERVICE https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/

2nd vaccine invites have been sent out to those who had their first vaccine 10 weeks ago. If you received your vaccine 10 weeks or more ago but have not been invited for your 2nd then please email waccg.adminbalhamparksurgery@nhs.net in case there has been an error. Please avoid calling regarding vaccines, unless you are unable to use email, to reduce the wait on our phone lines. 

Further advice has been published regarding 30-39 year olds and the AstraZenica vaccine:

The advice provided indicates a ‘preference for adults aged 30-39 without underlying health conditions to receive an alternative to Oxford/Astra-Zeneca vaccine-where available and only if this does not cause substantial delays in being vaccinated.’

They emphasize this is a precaution, that no new risks have been identified and the new approach is influenced by the lower infection rates in the UK currently.

Where possible patients in this age range will be offered an alternative vaccine, however if there are none available and they are due to be vaccinated then the AstraZeneca vaccine will be offered.

 Guidance for pregnant women in eligible groups: 

For people in the eligible cohorts who are also pregnant, JCVI guidance is that they should be offered mRNA vaccine. Women can attend any vaccination service that has a mRNA vaccine available or through referral to the SWL Covid-19 Maternity Vaccination Service. 

We are in the process of identifying patient who are in the eligible cohorts but have not been offered a vaccine due to a pregnancy code on their record. If you are over 40, have been told you are at high risk or moderate risk of Covid, are pregnant and would like to be vaccinated then please email waccg.adminbalhamparksurgery@nhs.net.

Please avoid calling regarding vaccines, unless you are unable to use email, to reduce the wait on our phone lines.

Important information on changes and how we are currently working

Balham Park Surgery is open and here to help when you need us.

We are operating differently in order to help protect our patients and staff in accordance with national and local guidance.

We currently operate a “triage first” approach to GP appointment booking, which means you will need to speak to a GP via telephone who will determine if they can deal with your issue remotely or if they need to see you face to face.

You can book a GP telephone appointment by calling our Appointments line on 020 8772 8772 – option 2 or, if appropriate, by using Doctorlink

Nurse appointments are mainly face to face and can be booked online via any online patient app (excluding doctorlink) or by calling our appointments line.

Our Care Navigators are trained by GPs to direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional and will therefore ask for a little more information before your appointment is booked. They are not carrying out a clinical assessment but will navigate patients to the most suitable clinician or department for their need or issue.

We have a range of clinical professions on duty, and GPs who carry out different functions each day so a care navigator assessing the most appropriate pathway enables a patient to be responded to more quickly by the most appropriate person.

We are constantly changing our systems to adapt as and when we receive national or local directives. Sometimes as a result of changes, inevitably things might not go as well as we had hoped which is of course regrettable.

If you experience any problems or difficulties with any of our new processes, please email SWLCCG.adminbalhamparksurgery@nhs.net

We want to work to get things right as often, as smoothly and efficiently as possible so your ongoing feedback is important to us.
