INVITATIONS FOR COVID VACCINATION
We have now telephoned or written to everyone who is 70 and over or Clinically Extremely Vulnerable to offer them a covid vaccination. If you believe you are in this category and we have not been in touch please contact the surgery.
If you are 65-69 years old you will be receiving a letter to book your covid vaccination in one of the mass vaccination sites which are being managed nationally. The letter will contain all of the information you need to book your appointment by telephone or by email. PLEASE NOTE this booking site does not include the practice's own covid vaccination hub at Islip Village Hall, which is being managed separately by The Key Medical Practice and three other local surgeries. If you are unable to travel to one of the mass vaccination sites available please contact the surgery and, if we have space, we will book you into one of our clinics.
The surgery has now been asked to invite patients who are 16-64 with underlying health conditions as described on the government website. If you believe you are in this group please wait for us to contact you and do not phone the surgery unless we have left a voicemail for you regarding your vaccination. Some patients in this cohort will receive a text message with a link to book an appointment, other patients will be called.
It is important to be aware that you will need to have your second dose at the same place where you had your first dose and this cannot be changed.
IMPORTANT SURGERY UPDATE - 30TH JULY 2020
Please read the document below for important and up-to-date surgery information during the Covid-19 outbreak.
It is very important that you do not come to the surgery unless you have been asked to do so by a member of the team.
We are taking this essential action to protect your health and the health of your community.
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.
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.
