2020 FLU SERVICE -

Children aged 4-18 AT RISK

All children in Reception - Year 7 will receive a vaccination at school.  However we have received vaccines for children in this age group who have an underlying health condition.  If you feel your child has a health condition listed by the NHS and therefore at risk, please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment.

Patients aged under 65 and AT RISK

Please contact the surgery if you are in one of the At Risk categories.   If you feel you qualify for a flu vaccination, please call to arrange an appointment. 

Carers

Those that care for someone who would not manage on their own, or that work in social care as a domiciliary or support worker are also entitled to a flu vaccination. Please ring to book an appointment.

Patients aged between 50-64

We have now received the flu vaccinations for patients within this age group.  We have a clinic on 5th December, please call the practice to book an appointment. If this date is not convenient please let us know and we will arrange an appointment at a time that suits you best.  If you are in the age category and decide you do not want to have the vaccination please email us wellingtonroad@nhs.net with your name and date of birth to say that you decline our offer.  We will update your record with this and will not need to bother you any further regarding this matter.

In the light of the risk of flu and COVID-19 co-circulating this winter, the national flu immunisation programme is absolutely essential to protect vulnerable people and the community at large.  Please book without delay

COVID 19 VACCINATIONS -

Many of you will have heard the news that GP Practices are preparing to deliver the Covid-19 vaccine when it becomes available.

Wellington Road Family Practice  will be working with our Primary Care Network partner surgeries to deliver the vaccine to our patients as soon as possible. So that we can continue to provide care for patients we are looking at the possibility of venues away from our practices where we can set up a vaccination centre within our local area.

We will be working on this programme very intensively over the coming weeks and will provide information via our website and via texts to patients as soon as we have it. The current guidance is that the government will write to patients to inform them of when they will become eligible for their vaccination as it will be released in phases. So please don't contact the surgery prior to this to arrange an appointment.

As a result of the levels of planning required to support this and during the delivery of the vaccines some of our services may be affected by capacity so please bear with us during this time. We are doing our very best to continue to help our patients and your support is very much appreciated.

Thank you

GP Patient Survey results 2020 - BEST SURGERY IN SOUTH GLOUCESTERSHIRE, BRISTOL AND NORTH SOMERSET

Wellington Road Family Practice was rated as the best practice for the FOURTH consecutive year in South Gloucestershire, Bristol and North Somerset.

Every year a GP Practice patient survey is carried out. The results of the 2020 survey have just been published. Wellington Road Family Practice has scored higher than average in every area surveyed. 98% of Wellington Road Family Practice patients who responded to the survey, described their overall experience of Wellington Road as good; the national average overall experience was 82%. GP Practices are judged on access to your GP service, making an appointment, your experience of your most recent appointment, your health as well as your overall experience. To achieve these excellent results for the fourth year running is outstanding, encouraging and a real boost to morale, especially as we have experienced a difficult year with sickness amongst the team.

Our aim is always to provide high quality, personalised care and we are delighted that the response from our patients yet again is so positive.

A very big THANK YOU on behalf of the whole team to all our patients who took the time to respond to the survey.
