In line with the latest national JCVI guidance, we are now rolling out the COVID-19 booster vaccine programme across North Hampshire to those who are eligible – we will be following the guidelines in the order and eligibility given.

The North Hampshire CCG has been working hard to get ready for the next phase of the roll out of the life-saving vaccine.

It is important to note that even if you fall within one of the early cohorts (due to your age or existing health conditions) you will only be eligible for your COVID-19 booster vaccine at least 6 months after your second vaccine dose.

A NOTE FROM DISPENSARY

 

 

We would like to take this opportunity to inform all our valued dispensary patients, of some changes that we are making, to the way we run our dispensary.

 

The last year, the entire practice has worked through unprecedented times. Covid-19, and the United Kingdom leaving the European Union have brought about many changes and we thank you for your patience and understanding during these times.

 

During the past few months, the dispensary department has been operating with significantly reduced staff. Covid-19 has caused us major disruption with staff shielding, and self-isolating. As a direct result of this, our prescription processing time is often longer than the 5 working days we promote. We are very sorry for this and understand the frustration and inconvenience this causes. Please be assured that we are addressing this, and hope to be back on track soon.

 

To accommodate and facilitate change, we have decided to close the dispensary between 11.00am - 4.00pm on the last Thursday of every month, commencing 25th February. This will allow us time to further develop our skills, and manage our expanding workload, thus providing our patients with a more efficient service.

 

May we also remind you that the dispensary is closed daily between 1-2pm; we are unable to hand out medication during this time. You will receive a text message when your prescription is ready for collection. Please wait to receive this in order to avoid a wasted journey and disappointment. This system has been put in place to help you and us.

 

Since leaving the European Union at the beginning of the year, we have experienced some minor difficulties in obtaining some of our regular brands of routine medications. To manage this we are now dealing with a number of new manufacturers and suppliers. Please rest assured that your medication, unless changed by your health professional, remains the same. The changes you may notice are different packaging, slight changes to pack size and items displaying the drug name, instead of a brand name.

 

We thank you for your continued support, and understanding during these uncertain times. Without your help and loyalty, we would not have the benefit of this great dispensing facility within our practice. We remain committed to providing all our patients with the highest level of care and service.

 

With best wishes from Dr Fisher, and the Dispensary team.
