COVID VACCINATION UPDATE - 15TH DECEMBER 2021

As you know the NHS in Oxfordshire and across the country is working fast to roll out the expanded COVID-19 booster vaccination programme and increase vaccine appointments for patients.
From today, Wednesday 15 December, all adults aged 18+ can book their booster appointment. We will contact you as quickly as we can to book your vaccine at our local GP-led site, or you can go via the NHS National Booking System.
The need to make boosters available at speed will require a lot of our staff time and resources, so we need to clinically prioritise our ‘business as usual’ GP services to support the vaccination programme. This could lead to some routine appointments and services being postponed. We will update you if this is the case, or you could help us help you by postponing routine appointments yourself – but please let us know if you are not coming.
Please be assured that clinically urgent services are open and urgent appointments will go ahead as planned.
The aim of the NHS is to offer every adult the chance to book their booster jab by the end of the year to help protect against the Omicron variant. Vaccines continue to remain the best line of defence against the virus.
Thank you for your cooperation and continuing support during these very challenging times.

Certificates or evidence of Covid Vaccination Status

We are unable to issue this certificate at the practice.

Please see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad for further information.

Proof of your vaccination status will be available in the NHS app from 17th May 2021 and in some of the other apps that provide you with Patient online services. 

The NHSapp can be downloaded from:
https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/nhs-app/id1388411277 for iPhone/iOS
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhs.online.nhsonline for Android.

If you have not used it before, there is a self-registration process within the app to create an "NHS login" as per https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/nhs-log-in/

If you already have access/ login details for patient online services, for example "Patient Access", you may use this.

Alternatively, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine.  The letter may to take another 5 days to reach you, or more if postal services are affected.  Please take account of this when making your plans. 

Please note that this information is only available to anyone who has been vaccinated in England.

With effect from 1st July 2019 The Key Medical Practice will be working as part of a Primary Care Network with three local practices, Gosford Medical Centre, Islip and Woodstock Surgery.  Please click on the link below to read an information sheet which has been written by the Patient Participation Group Forum about what this means for our patients.

 

Primary Care Networks - Information for Patients

Welcome to The Key Medical Practice

Our aim is to provide high quality, effective health care delivered by compassionate and efficient staff.

We hope you find all the information you need in our website. If not, please do let us know. Our practice leaflet contains much about our staff and services and can be found here.

We have been looking at ways to improve access for our patients. Did you know you can book GP and blood test appointments and order medications online? These services are very easy to use and are proving popular with many patients. Please download an application form and bring to reception with photo ID so we can provide you with your pin.

Nominating a pharmacy is another great time saver. Simply tell reception which pharmacy is most convenient for you and we can send your prescription there directly. Two working days after you have requested your medication it will be ready for collection at your nominated pharmacy. If you choose to change your nominated pharmacy at any time, just let reception know. 

The practice has an active Patient Participation Group. More information about their work can be found under the 'Have Your Say' tab above. The page now includes a link to the minutes from their latest meeting.
