*****UNDER 65 Flu vaccines now available*****

It is expected that winter 2021 to 2022 will be the first winter when seasonal influenza virus (and other respiratory viruses) will co-circulate alongside COVID-19.

Seasonal influenza and COVID-19 viruses have the potential to add substantially to the winter pressures usually faced by healthcare providers, particularly if infection waves from both viruses coincide. Unfortunately there is no HSC funding for the administration of the flu vaccine in primary care this year.

With this in mind we are still keen to get as many of our patients vaccinated against Flu as soon as possible. Therefore inspired by another popular Channel Islands autumn event we are offering the Flu vaccine to all ‘at risk’ patients for only £10 until the 31st October (while stocks last). If you are in any of the categories below please call any of our surgeries to book your flu vaccine appointment.

(Over 65s will be informed as soon as the vaccine specifically for this age group arrives on island)

****Important update for Town Surgery patients - please share****

To be able to continue to provide the highest level of care to our current and new patients in town we are relocating from Frances House to our new, larger and easily acessible surgery in the centre of St Peter Port at 1 Le Truchot.

This provides us with level access, increased consulting rooms includng a dedicated psychological therapies room, close to ample public parking with bicycle storage and easy access to public transport.

Our last day of operating from Frances House will be Thursday 23rd September. Our new surgery is due to open at the beginning of November. During this short time period of having no town premises all our current Town Surgery staff will relocate to either St Sampsons or L’Aumone surgeries. Therefore all town patients can still see their GP, nurse, physio, osteopath and psychological therapists during this time period. The phone number for town will remain the same and will be temporarily diverted to St Sampsons surgery while we eagerly await our new surgery.

All of the IslandHealth partners and staff are very excited about this new surgery and we hope our patients will find the facilities and services offered in town much improved. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the short time we do not have a town premises.

We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Island Ultrasound to offer an in house diagnostic Ultrasound service. This is in line with our ongoing commitment to enhance the medical services we offer.

The first clinic will be at St Sampsons Medical Centre on Thursday 9th September. From November it will be based at our new Town Surgery (more details on this exciting development coming soon!)

We hope this will allow our patients to access this very useful diagnostic test promptly and from a convenient location. It is available for both self funding and insured patients.

Ultrasound is covered by most major insurance companies but we would recommend that anyone gets pre-authorisation from their insurance company prior to their scan.

BLOOD BOTTLE SHORTAGE

There is a national shortage of blood bottles within the UK until further notice. This means that all UK & Guernsey GP practices are affected by the current shortage and we are taking urgent steps alongside our hospital colleagues to prioritise their use.

We have been given guidance on how to manage this shortage and we are currently taking steps to put these in place. As a result, we will be cancelling or delaying any ROUTINE or NON-URGENT blood tests and only booking in URGENT blood tests. If you already have a ROUTINE or NON-URGENT test booked, our GP’s will be looking into whether or not these can be cancelled / re-scheduled and you may receive either a telephone call or Text message informing you of the cancellation.

Our Clinicians will continue to evaluate your medical need for these tests and will allocate you an URGENT blood appointment if needed.

These changes are likely to be with us for at least the whole of September.

We fully understand the frustration this is likely to cause and apologise for any inconvenience.

Bad enough getting blood tests (Especially fasting) as it is. Got to wait sometimes weeks for one

OK, hubby will be anticipating a text. No problems, urgent and diagnostic must take priority

What do you technically call as urgent? I need a blood test as I’m on Methotrexate and Dr Riley wanted me to have a blood test ASAP to check my levels as it can poison me. I tried to book it this morning and got told this would only be a couple of weeks delay. So hearing this is worrying. Any info would be great. Thank you.
