FLU VACCINATION PLANS 2020


 This year, due to covid restrictions, we will be holding BOOKED flu clinics only.  We need to ensure our patients safety and ensure we vaccinate the most at risk first.  


 These will be held at BARTESTREE VILLAGE HALL.  All eligible patients will be called during October and November, depending on delivery of vaccines. Clinics will be on Saturdays and you will receive an invitation by letter with a booked slot time to attend. 


 Please bear with us!!  This is a challenging time for us all. We WILL write to you if you are entitled to a flu vaccination (over 65 or under 65 with a chronic illness) 


 Children aged 2 and 3 and patients who are pregnant will be called separately to these clinics as we receive vaccines.


 See our Facebook page  for up to date information. 

Accountable Named GP

In line with our contractual requirements all of our patients, as of 30th June 2015, will have been allocated a named, accountable GP.

 

What does 'Accountable' mean:

Your named accountable GP will oversee the co-ordination of your care amongst the other health professionals.

 

Does this mean that my named accountable GP will take 24 hour responsibility for my care:

No, the named accountable GP will not take 24 hour responsibility for your care, your named GP will purely oversee the care that you receive.

 

Does this mean that have the right to see my named GP every time I book an appointment:

No, a patient can express who they would like to see, however, this may not always be possible due to appointment availability with that GP.

Can patients still see any GP they wish:

Yes, a patient can continue to see any GP they wish as they currently do.

Will I be informed in writing who my accountable named GP is:

No, your practice does not have to inform you in writing.  If you would like to know who your named GP is then please contact the practice.

Can I change my named accountable GP:

Yes, just ask at reception and they will help you with this or email ruth.harley@nhs.net
