COVID 19 VACCINE

THERE IS A LOT OF NEWS OUT THERE ABOUT COVID VACCINATIONS. THE MALTHOUSE SURGERY CONTINUES TO DELIVER VACCINATIONS DEPENDING ON THE SUPPLY OF VACCINE. WE STARTED IN MID DECEMBER WE ARE WELL ON OUR WAY TO VACCINATING ALL OVER 65s & THOSE 16-64 WITH AN APPOPRAITE UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITION.

WORKING WITH OUR PRIMARY CARE NETWORK PARTNER ABINGDON SURGERY WE HAVE DELIVERED OVER 7000 VACCINES. AS WE RECEIVE FURTHER DOSES PATIENTS WILL BE INVITED IN PRIORITY ORDER.

ALL MALTHOUSE SURGERY AND ABINGDON SURGERY PATIENTS WILL HAVE THEIR VACCINE ADMINISTERED AT THE CHARTER, WHERE WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL COUNCIL WE HAVE  EXPANDED THE MALTHOUSE SURGERY SITE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS.

MASS VACCINATION SITES ARE OPENING UP AND THESE ARE BEING MANAGED NATIONALLY. LETTERS ARE BEING SENT DIRECTLY TO PATIENTS. IF YOU RECEIVE ONE OF THESE LETTERS IT WILL PROVIDE THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO BOOK YOUR VACCINATION AT ONE OF THESE SITES. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO THIS BY PHONE OR ONLINE. THIS MAY MEAN YOU NEED TO TRAVEL FURTHER.

 IF YOU WAIT TO BE CONTACTED BY US AND HAVE YOUR VACCINATION AT YOUR LOCAL SITE WE ARE MAKING REALLY GOOD PROGRESS.

WHICHEVER OPTION YOU CHOOSE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE AWARE THAT YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE YOUR SECOND DOSE AT THE SAME PLACE WHERE YOU HAD YOUR FIRST DOSE AND THIS CANNOT BE CHANGED

THE VACCINE PROGRAMME IS EXTENSIVE AND THE MAJORITY OF ELIGIBLE PATIENTS WILL GET THEIR VACCINE IN 2021. A PRIORITISATION LIST HAS BEEN PRODUCED BY THE NHS DETAILING THE GROUPS OF PATIENTS TO BE VACCINATED FIRST. PRIORITY IS GENERALLY BY AGE AS THIS IS THE BIGGEST RISK FACTOR. 

THE MALTHOUSE SURGERY WILL CONTACT YOU WITH A DATE AND TIME WHEN IT IS YOUR TURN TO RECEIVE THE VACCINE.  PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US TO SEEK THE VACCINE BEFORE IT IS YOUR TURN, EVERYONE WHO IS ELIGIBLE WILL GET A VACCINE  

THE MALTHOUSE SURGERY HAS REMAINED OPEN AND CONTINUED TO SEE PATIENTS FACE TO FACE WHERE REQUIRED THROUGHOUT THE PANDEMIC, WITH ALL STAFF WORKING OUT OF THE SURGERY NOT HOME BASED. DUE TO COVID 19 AND THE REQUIREMENT FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING WE ARE LIMITED TO HOW MANY PATIENTS CAN ENTER THE SURGERY.  ONLY CALL THE SURGERY FOR URGENT ON THE DAY APPOINTMENTS WHICH INITIALLY WILL BE A TELEPHONE OR VIDEO CONSULTATION.  FOR ALL ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS PLEASE USE E CONSULT WHICH CAN BE ACCESSED VIA THIS WEBSITE. ANY PATIENT WHO AFTER TRIAGE NEEDS A FACE TO FACE CONSULTATION WILL BE SEEN IN THE SURGERY. MANY PATIENTS ARE BEING SEEN FACE TO FACE WEEKLY WITHIN THE COVID LIMITATIONS PLACED ON US, INCLUDING FOR REGULAR BLOOD TESTS, CHRONIC DISEASE REVIWS ETC.

Welcome to The Malthouse Surgery

The doctors and staff at The Malthouse Surgery in Abingdon are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. Despite COVID we continue to run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups. You must call the surgery to make an appointment, please do not try and make an appointment by visiting. We have a range of different staff to support you, including GPs, nurse, HCA, Clinical Pharmacist, physiotherapist and care navigator. Due to COVID all urgent on the day appointments with a GP are initially by telephone triage, while for non urgent routine appointments with a GP you should use e-consult, available through a link on this website. You cannot enter the practice without an appointment, for repeat prescription requests please use patient access or drop your request in the letterbox at the side of the entrance door.  For more serious conditions where you feel there is a need for you to see a clinician urgently (within 24 hours), you will be telephone triaged during the day by a duty GP and they will discuss your medical condition and decide appropriate action, if you are invited to visit the surgery please wait at the entrance for the receptionist to call you in and always wear a mask.  

Training Future General Practitioners

We are a training practice and have doctors who come to work and learn with us. These doctors are fully qualified and often have at least three years experience. These doctors see patients independently and sometimes video their surgery consultations. These videos are viewed and used for educational purposes only and are destroyed after 12 months. We always ask for patient's consent to be videoed and they are given the option not to take part. The Practice also hosts medical students from Imperial College in London who spend 3 weeks with us learning about General Practice.
