COVID-19 Vaccination

The COVID-19 vaccinations are done centrally (PCN) and not by individual GP practices at present therefore we do not offer this on site. Please DO NOT contact your doctor or the NHS asking about vaccination; this is not a service that you are able to book in advance. The NHS will contact you when your turn comes in the months ahead. If you are contacted, please do attend the appointment. See the Brent CCG website for further information: The NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Programme :: North West London Clinical Commissioning Groups (nwlondonccgs.nhs.uk)


The COVID-19 vaccinations are done centrally (PCN) and not by individual GP practices therefore we do not offer this on site. Please phone the surgery to book appointments – there might be delay in availability so please do not get upset if we are not able to offer you one immediately. Currently the Pfizer vaccine is administered and we will offer the Oxford version when the PCN has it in stock.


If you have been in hospital or recovering at home from COVID-19, there are helpful guides on how to deal with post-viral fatigue:


We are pleased that our recent interview with the CQC about our COVID19 readiness went well and the Care Quality Commission has found that we are able to provide safe care and treatment to our patients and staff and that we have the right assurance processes, monitoring and risk amangaement in place. You can find the full report here: CQC COVID19 Assessment for Dr Raphael Rasooly

“The provider is managing through the COVID 19 pandemic. They are taking appropriate infection prevention and control measures and there are adequate supplies of personal protective equipment. Staff levels are adequate, staff are provided with training and supported with their well being to cope through the crisis. Systems and risk management are being improved to ensure patients receive safe care and treatment.”

If you are a patient or a carer of a patient who you think would benefit from being referred to the social prescriber, please let your GP practice know. Social Prescribers are attached to the practice and can give you confidential advice and help support you not just with accessing specialist services and support but during the coronavirus pandemic, are able to carry out telephone assessments of your needs such as access to food, prescriptions and emotional support. Please ensure that we have your up-to-date contact details available when requesting a referral. You can check out the attached document below for a more detailed information.

Social Prescriber Brent Patient Leaflet


NHSE is requesting practices to utilise online prescribing as much as possible due to the current coronavirus situation. You may notice your prescription is no longer available in a paper format. Help us help each other stay safe and update your contact details, including your email address so that we can transfer your prescriptions to online services. You will also need to nominate a pharmacy for this process.


It is difficult to keep up with all the information that comes in about this new virus. We moved all our GP appointments to telephone/video consultations where appropriate. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have changed your contact details so the doctor can call you back. Some patients might welcome the addition of video consultations and we have found a helpful video on how to set it up on your phone: https://youtu.be/DI2rvhcAaIw

If you need your repeat prescription, please order it via Online Services or request to be set up for access. Alternatively, you can post your prescription requests in the box outside. At the moment there is no delay to the 2-working day process.

We have collecteda  wealth of advice for people with specific issues like chronic disease, pregnancy or just ideas on what to do while self-isolating and you can continue to view the latest advise from the NHS here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/


We are moving onto telephone consultations where appropriate to reduce the risk of coronavirus infection both to our patients and our staff. Please ensure we have your contact details. Online booking has been suspended for the time being.

We have a presentation on the changes we made to operate during the lockdown. You can see it COVID19 Changes


WHO Online Training

The World Health Organisation released an online course, free for anyone to take after registering for an account, about coronavirus and what precautions people can take. https://openwho.org/courses/introduction-to-ncov


WHO Update

https://www.who.int/dg/speeches/detail/who-director-general-s-opening-remarks-at-the-media-briefing-on-covid-19—3-march-2020

WHO’s Director General released an update yesterday with some positive news about the virus. “To summarize, COVID-19 spreads less efficiently than flu, transmission does not appear to be driven by people who are not sick, it causes more severe illness than flu, there are not yet any vaccines or therapeutics, and it can be contained – which is why we must do everything we can to contain it. That’s why WHO recommends a comprehensive approach.”


Wash your hands often and well!

NHS Advises that people pay particular attention to handwashing as a prevention to passing on the virus.  You can find the best way to wash your hands here: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/best-way-to-wash-your-hands/


How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus

Do
  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
Don’t
  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

We have received a number of queries about the Wuhan Coronavirus update. Public Health England issued the following information on their website and you can refer to it for updates.
