Campden Surgery Newsflash October 2021

Flu and Covid Booster Vaccine Programmes

Following the statement posted on our website from the Clinical Director of the PCN, these vaccine programmes are currently being organised as a group of local practices in the North Cotswolds and we will add details to our website when NHS England clarifies the procedure.

The appointment booking hub remains open to take answers questions and queries related to both the Covid vaccinations, the boosters and the flu programme. The number for the hub is 01608 692115.

Facebook Page

We now have a facebook page for Chipping Campden Surgery – @Campdensurgery – which we will use to display surgery and NHS information for patients.

Blood Test Bottle Shortage

This is in the process of being resolved and we are advised to re-start routine blood tests in a staged manner in order to spread out the demand for tubes over the next 8 weeks. We will be contacting patients on the waiting list and booking them in over this time period. Please wait for the surgery to contact you if you have been advised that your blood test has needed to be delayed.

New Partner

We are delighted to announce that Dr Nikki Hodgkins will be joining the practice when Dr Williams leaves. Dr Hodgkins is an experienced, local GP and will overlap with Dr Williams during December 2021.

Dr Williams’ patient list will be transferred to Dr Hodgkins – there is no need for patients to contact the practice as this will be an automatic transfer.

New Surgery Build

We are very happy to inform our patients that we have preliminary approval from the Primary Care Commissioning Committee to progress with producing a business case for a new surgery building and we will keep patients updated during this process.
