(Green) Alert

FLU VACCINES

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have been advised that we will not now be receiving the delivery of the flu vaccines that were scheduled to be with us this week. This is part of a national issue and is apparently related to logistical and production delays. This regrettably means that we will now have to cancel the drive through clinic that was planned for Saturday 23 October. All patients who were booked for their vaccination will now be placed on a priority list and we will contact you all as soon as possible to offer you the earliest alternative appointment for you to have your flu vaccination. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but would like to stress that we are doing all we can to ensure all our eligible patients who wish to be vaccinated will be vaccinated as soon as practically possible.

Welcome to Debenham Group Practice 

COVID-19 Update
 
With the recent substantial increase in infection rates, we ask that patients continue to please contact us by phone or online (using eConsult) as you have been doing. We are facing unprecedented demands for our services and will need to continue to adjust how we use our clinician’s time to best support our patients - particularly those who need us the most. Please note that it also still remains a requirement for anyone visiting the surgery or dispensary to wear a face covering. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Due to on-going social distancing requirements across the NHS, we need to continue with the process whereby only one person can enter the building at a time when collecting medication. We have increased our dispensary opening times to try and reduce/minimise the need for queuing, but it would also help if those who are able, collect their medication midweek rather than the traditionally busier times of Monday and Friday. Thank you.

For anyone attending an appointment, when you arrive at the surgery please remain in your vehicle and telephone reception. A clinician will come out to you. For anyone dropping off a sample, please ensure this is packaged securely with the appropriate paperwork and post this through the letterbox

Additional COVID-19 information can be found here.

We will keep you updated with regard to any developments. Thank you for your ongoing assistance.
