COVID-19 VACCINATION      Updated 25th Feb 2021

  • You will be invited by us (or a National Vaccination Centre) as soon as  you are eligible and when the vaccine is available to us.   Please book with the National Vaccination Centre if you are offered this as an option.  

  • The clinical team at Parkshot is closely following Government guidance, which is regularly reviewed, in order to determine the order patients are invited to be vaccinated.

  • The vaccination program can differ from other surgeries as it depends upon the number of patients within key groups, and also the amount of vaccine that we receive as a vaccination centre, neither of which we have any control over.

  • Please take the first vaccine you are offered - again, we have no choice about this

  • Second doses will be given about 12 weeks after the first.   You will be invited to book an appointment nearer the time and as soon as we recieve the vaccine allocated for this use.

  • Do email us if you have any queries or want to make us aware of any concerns you have - parkshot.medical@nhs.net

 

OVER 7O AND NOT VACCINATED ?

We have invited all our patients who are over 70 or Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) for a COVID-19 vaccination. If you are over 70 or in the CEV group and have not heard from us, please contact us and let us have your up to date contact details so that we can arrange an appointment for your vaccination.

ELECTRONIC PRESCRIBING IS THE NEW NORMAL !

Almost all NHS prescriptions at Parkshot will soon be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.   This saves your time, your pharmacist’s time and the time of practice staff too.   It should also prevent errors and streamline the whole process for us all.

If you have already nominated your chosen pharmacy you need to take no further action, and everything will continue as normal.

Did you know that you can also order most prescriptions electronically using Patient Access or the NHS App ? 

If you have not yet chosen a pharmacy, you need to give us your nomination as soon as you can.   The quickest and simplest methods are either to call reception on 020 8948 4217 or to send an email to : parkshot.medical@nhs.net

Please note that private prescriptions, specially ordered items, and some controlled drugs given in instalments, cannot be issued electronically, you will need to contact us in these instances. (see above details).

Prescriptions

Prescription requests:  We can normally prepare these within 48 hours, but they have to be requested or handed in at the front desk by 12noon for the 48 hours to apply. 

After this time, it is simply not possible for us to meet this deadline.   For example, if you drop your request into the prescription box at 1230 on a Monday, it will not be ready for collection until Thursday morning.  I appreciate that this may seem a long wait but we have to deal with over 500 requests a week and our doctors like to ensure that all medications are properly reviewed, which means accessing each medical record and reviewing drugs, quantities and time frames. We take this very seriously and this task requires careful thought and protected time, so cannot be undertaken during consultations.

Minor Eye Problems?

If you have recent problem with your eyes - such as sore eyes, red eyes or visual disturbance, you can be assessed and treated by the local Minor Eye Conditions Service.

We are a GP Training Practice

Parkshot Medical is a GP Training Practice, which means that we have been approved for undergraduate and post-graduate training of GP registrars.  Registrars are already fully qualified doctors, in their final stage of professional General Practice training.   This is supervised by Dr Lucy Farley and Dr Justin Woolley. 

Registrars normally stay with Parkshot Medical for around 12 months. During which time they see patients in their own GP clinics. They are closely supervised, so part of their ongoing development involves the trainer sitting in to observe a consultation, or analysis of videoed consultations. For this reason patients may be asked for their permission to have consultations with GP Registrar’s recorded. No physical examinations are recorded. lease rest assured that this will only be done with your written consent, and if you decide not to have the consultation recorded, it will not affect the care you receive in any way.

As a teaching practice, patients may also meet medical students in the surgery or accompanying the doctor on their calls. These students are going through a very important part of their medical training and your co-operation is extremely valuable and much appreciated.  However, if you would prefer not to engage with our students please inform reception and they will pass on your wishes to the doctor.

Our current GP Registrar is Dr Patricia Mighui
