New Covid rules


Why can't I see my GP?

Please see this short video which helps to explain the situation with seeing your GP and the best routes to the best care.


Patient Survey

Should you receive an email with the subject "PARK ROAD GROUP PRACTICE PATIENT SURVEY" this has been sent out by us to a randomly selected patient list. This survey has been sent though a company called Survey Monkey. We would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to reply to the survey should you receive one. Thank you.


Taking the next step – July 19th

Face Masks and other Social Distancing measures in General Practice from 19th July

IPC Guide

The government have announced their plans to move out of lockdown, indicating that this is likely to be from 19 July. Until that time we wanted to remind you that the hands, face, space, fresh air mandatory requirements and guidance still apply.

The number of people who have received their first, and in many cases, second vaccination locally is fantastic but it doesn’t completely remove the risk of Covid and the virus continues to circulate in our communities. If you haven’t had your vaccinations yet you can find out more about the walk in opportunities in your local area HERE and we encourage you to share this information with friends and family.

Please remember that at this time, all infection prevention and control and the guidance regarding the use of face masks/coverings, which has been put in place for health care settings remains unchanged. This is for your safety, the safety of loved ones receiving care and for the safety of our staff. If visiting a healthcare setting, such as your GP practice, or when going to receive your Covid vaccination, you will still be required to practice good hand hygiene, wear your mask and give appropriate space to staff and other people in the area.

Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid Javid said:
“As we move from regulations to guidance and get back to our everyday lives, see our loved ones and return to work, it is vital people practise good sense and take personal responsibility for their own health and those around them”

We have made such positive strides over the past few months, to keep moving forward, we must still remain mindful that we need to help protect each other.
After the 19th July, for the safety or yourself and others, we continue to recommend you:

  • Meet others in well-ventilated areas where possible, such as outdoors or indoors with windows open.
  • Wear a face covering where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet in enclosed and crowded spaces.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze.
  • Stay at home if unwell, to reduce the risk of passing on other illnesses onto friends, family, colleagues, and others in your community.
  • Consider the individual risks of others, such as clinical vulnerabilities and vaccination status.

To keep up to date and fully informed with the changing guidance continue to visit GOV.UK and NHS.UK for trusted information.


Travel Immunisations

We are not offering a travel vaccination service at present.

There is a global shortage of some travel vaccinations at present and the surgery is unable to offer a full service at this time.

We will update our website as things progress.

Please contact your nearest travel vaccination centre (or local chemist if they offer the service) for further guidance.


How to get your COVID pass.

NHS App imageTo get a NHS Digital Covid pass you will need to use an online service.

You can get access to the certificate either through the NHS App or via the NHS website.

You will need to register for an NHS ID which will allow you to access the immunisation record. This process is easier if you are already registered for patient access with your surgery as your identity has already been confirmed. To sign-up for online patient access at your surgery please contact reception or next time you visit the surgery, bring with you a piece of photo ID (passport, driving licence) and something with your address on like a bank statement but not a gas or electric bill. If you don’t have these, please talk to us and we will help you sign-up.

Please click here for further details on getting a digital COVID pass.

A Message from Surrey Heaths GP Clinical Lead

“Whichever service you access, I’d like to reassure you that the NHS is working very hard to be there for you in a safe and timely way.

GP Practices are currently facing unprecedented times with very high levels of demand.

This includes significant waiting times for non-urgent routine care and high volumes of telephone calls which we are working hard to reduce. We are also implementing additional resources, where possible.

To support us during these challenging times, please consider how urgent your request is before contacting your GP Practice and whether there is another service, like your pharmacy or NHS 111 that could help”.

Dr John Fraser – Local GP and Clinical Lead for Surrey Heath

YOUR SURGERY IS OPEN

As I am sure you can appreciate it has been an extremely difficult time for all NHS staff and that includes our team.

We are grateful for your ongoing support and we thank you for your patience.

We are glad that now -

Heatherside and Old Dean Surgeries are open - we will still be following strict Covid measures and signs will be in place to help guide you.

Nurses and GPs will be working from Heatherside and Old Dean sites and may ask you to visit them at those sites if they need to see you (some have already started this)

All appointments will remain as telephone and video consultations in the first instance and the clinician will only ask you to attend if deemed necessary - We must continue to be vigilant of increasing Covid 19 numbers

You will be able to book a routine phone call 3 weeks in advance

Further updates will follow, in the meantime please continue to be patient and please understand that we will take a Zero Tolerance stance to any abuse towards any staff member regardless of the reason
