COVID 19

WE ARE NOW MOVING CLOSE TO FINISHING ALL 1st DOSE VACCINATION CLINICS FOR ALL OUR ADULT PATIENTS.  IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD A VACCINE YET AND WANT TO RECEIVE YOUR VACCINATION LOCALLY YOU NEED TO CONTACT US NOW.

WE HAVE ALSO EMBARKED ON A PROGRAMME OF 2nd DOSE VACCINES THROUGH TO AUGUST. 

ALL MALTHOUSE SURGERY AND ABINGDON SURGERY PATIENTS WILL BE OFFERED TO HAVE THEIR VACCINE ADMINISTERED AT THE CHARTER, WHERE WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL COUNCIL WE HAVE EXPANDED THE MALTHOUSE SURGERY SITE.

MASS VACCINATION SITES ARE OPEN 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.

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

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

These are made at the doctors’ discretion and are usually carried out by our Federation para medic team.

If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you are housebound and require a home visit.

A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.
