NHS Patients, staff and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in healthcare settings.

 

Chief Nursing Officer for England, Ruth May, has reminded the nation that anyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules. 

 

Whilst many settings will no longer implement social distancing rules, Public Health England's infection prevention guidelines and hospital guidance will reamin in place for all staff and visitors. 

 

As a practice, we would like to thank our patients and visitors who have followed guidance to date, and we would ask that you continue to respect the above guidance when visiting the surgery. 

Latest Information

COVID 19

Following a Government announcement on 29th November, the NHS is developing plans to extend the Covid-19 booster vaccination programme to include everyone aged 18 and over.

 

12 to 15 year olds will also be offered a second dose of the vaccine and an additional booster will be available for people who are immunosuppressed.

 

People will become eligible for their booster three months after their second dose (reduced from six months).

 

For now, all you need to do is wait to be contacted by the NHS. Please help us to help all patients by not contacting your GP practice about your booster or attending vaccination sites.

If you are over 40 or a health and social care worker, and are eligible for your booster, go online to www.nhs.uk or call 119 to book your appointment. Visit www.happyhealthylives.uk/vaccinationdrop-ins to see all the places you can go for a walk-in appointment.

Please visit our COVID Information page for the latest information and advice, including booster vaccines.

Primary Care Network (PCN) Staff

Bennfield Surgery is 1 of 12 surgeries within the same Primary Care Network. The PCN consists of GP practices working together, along with other healthcare staff and organisations, providing integreated services to the local population. 

 

Each PCN is given a sum of money and it is up to the PCN to determine how best to spend that money, depending on the needs of the area. 

 

Our PCN has employed a variety of PCN staff to ease the pressures from GPs and to bridge the gap between GP and Hospital referrals. 

 

Some of the staff already employed are:

 

  • Pharmacist
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Physiotherapist
  • Chiropodist
  • Dietitian

 

Some of the services offered above are directly bookable by our Reception staff and you may be offered an appointment with one of the PCN staff rather than a GP when phoning for an appointment. 

Protected Learning Time (PLT) Dates

The GP Protected Learning Time (PLT) days are held regularly and contribute towards our staff continuous professional development. 

 

On these PLT days, the surgery will be open as usual in the morning and will close at 12.30pm. Any urgent queries during the afternoon of a PLT day should be directed to NHS 111.

 

Forthcoming PLT days for 2022 are:

Thursday 13th January

Thursday 3rd February

Wednesday 9th March

Thursday 7th April

Thursday 12th May

Wednesday 22nd June

Thursday 15th September

Wednesday 12th October

Thursday 24th November

Flu Clinics 2021

 

We are continuing to offer flu vaccines to those patients identified as being at risk. We are pleased to confirm that we are now able to offer appointments to all patients aged 50 years or over.

 

Please phone the surgery after 1pm, Monday to Friday, to book an appointment into one of our flu sessions. We are now running them at various times throughout the week. 

 

Children's flu

We are only comissioned to administer flu vaccines to children aged 2 & 3 years, or for children where there is a health condition that deems them 'at risk'. 

 

Those children not at risk will be contacted either by their education establishment or by the local community children's health regarding arrangements. 

 

If your child has missed their flu vaccine whilst in school, we are unable to administer it here at the surgery. Your school will be able to advise you on future 'mop-up' sessions for those children who missed their vaccine in school. 

Care Data Information Extraction

NHS England has indicated that they now intend to extract data from the practice to the 'care.data' system. Information leaflets are available from Reception at the surgery. We also have copies of 'Frequently Asked Questions' which will provide more information. The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is working with NHS England to deliver the system on behalf of the entire NHS.
