NEWS
THERE IS CURRENTLY AN INTERNATIONAL SHORTAGE OF BLOOD BOTTLES, AFFECTING BLOOD TESTS BOTH IN THE HOSPITAL AND IN THE COMMUNITY AND PRIMARY CARE:

As a result of the shortage, all doctors have been told to suspend non-essential blood tests.

Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one, but in some cases, where it is safe, you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date or your appointment may be rescheduled.

Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when tests will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will re-book your test as soon as we can. If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.

University Hospital Southampton and our colleagues in primary care are working together to support the management of this incident across Southampton.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Coronavirus information
 

COVID-19 Vaccination Service
The University Health Service is running the local COVID-19 Vaccination Service.

We are offering booked vaccination appointments for first, second, third (for immunocompromised patients) and booster doses on Saturdays. If you are a patient, we will notify you when you are able to come for your booster.

On Monday 29th November, the JCVI recommended the vaccination of adults over 18 where 3 months has passed since the second dose. Please note that, while we are working to prepare to provide this, the NHS is not yet operationally ready. We will be offering booked appointments to our patients and shortly through the NHS website. We have had to pause the walk-in model while we focus on protecting our patients.

Come along and get your COVID-19 vaccinations to protect yourself and your loved ones from coronavirus!

MORE INFORMATION ON COVID-19 VACCINATIONS AND HOW TO BOOK

If you have any further queries, please email soccg.unihealthcovidvaccinations@nhs.net as this will be picked up by the vaccination team. The vaccination team is different from the reception team who are working hard to provide the fundemental services of the surgery.
Face coverings

We are aware of the planned move to lifting the remaining Covid restrictions in England from the 19th of July. Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more control measures than other public facilities.

We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining:
• Social distancing
• Face coverings
• PPE for healthcare staff

The delta variant is more transmissible and patients may come to the surgery when they are contagious. It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care. Thank you
