Noticeboard

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.

Anyone who needs an urgent blood test will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date. 

From 19 July face coverings will still be required when entering any site of Sandhurst Group Practice, unless you are exempt. In line with official public health advice, measures remain in place across all healthcare services to protect patients, visitors and staff. 

From Monday 19th July our doors will be open again from 08:30am  

On the day appointments will be available on the telephone from 8am - we encourage everyone who is phoning for anything other than on the day GP appointments to phone after 9:30am - thank you for your understanding

The latest news section directs you how to obtain a Vaccine Passport 

(this is not available through the GP surgery)

Please be ready to give your Date of Birth and a SHORT description of why you require a consultation immediately you get through - this will help us deal with you quickly 

 Please note that Face Coverings & Mask Exemption Letter Requests will be refused as Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. For further information please follow  this link Face Mask Exemption Poster.

  Your local A&E is experiencing longer delays than usual, so to help us (and to avoid a long wait) we would ask that you only attend there or call 999 in a serious or life-threatening emergency.

 Our Home Visits are now carried out by Paramedics - they will have ID for checking and will arrive in  normal transport.  They have full access to your notes and will be communicating with your Named GP.  Please request a Home Visit through Reception as normal.  The Paramedic may phone to check your symptoms and the emergency beforehand, so make sure we have your correct contact details. 

We no longer offer Travel advice & Clinics. You  will need to go to your local Travel Clinic for this advice or go online to a travel Website such as fit-for-travel

Sandhurst Voluntary Care

Sandhurst Group Practice are happy to promote SANDHURST VOLUNTARY CARE, and as the name suggests this is a totally voluntary organisation, in that all those that work with the organisation are volunteers and give their time freely.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

SVC provides transport for those people who are unable to get to medical appointments, whether these are at the surgery, the dentist or at hospitial, for those who have no other way of attending. This means people who are unable to use public transport, do not have their own transport, and do not have friends or relatives who can take them.

SVC IS NOT A FREE SERVICE

Although volunteers do give up their time freely, they can claim petrol expenses, and therefore depending on the miles travelled, a donation is made by the client. These donations go directly to the Treasurer who is responsible for reimbursing the Driver.

HOW TO CONTACT SVC

Contact is by Telephone on Mobile Number 07799 410231and the SVC can be contacted Monday to Friday between 2 and 5pm.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP US?

SVC are always looking for people who may have some spare hours in the day, whether as a Driver or a Duty Officer on the end of our Mobile phone one afternoon a month. If you are interested in helping us, we would love to hear from you.  Please contact 07799 410231
