Have Your Say

**Please be aware that the surgery DOES NOT keep any supplies of Lateral Flow tests **

We understand that access to the surgery is not as easy as we would like, and that appointment availability is reduced. Please read our latest notice from the Practice Manager under the NEWS section

We continue our work to recruit GPs and explore what locums are available in the hope to deal with our current capacity issues. We know other surgeries are encountering the same challenges and thank you for bearing with us at this difficult time.

COVID VACCINATIONS

16/17 Year Olds: national guidance has changed and booster vaccinations are now available. These must be 12 weeks after the second dose and if the patient has tested positive for COVID, there must also be a 12 week gap before they can be vaccinated.

12 to 15 year olds: these too can get their 1st & 2nd doses. Most can get theirs at school or you need to book via the National Booking Centre as not all sites are able to vaccinate this age group.

Booster Programme:  

A booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for everyone aged 16 and over, who has had 2 doses of the vaccine at least 3 months ago

You can book on line via the National Booking programme & our local hubs at The Oaks and Bosmere are now available to book through this facility as well.

Travelling Abroad? GPs cannot provide evidence or letters showing your COVID19 vaccination status. Instead, please see the attached document for guidance.

 

How to obtain your vaccination status

CHANGE OF GP : EXCELLENT news - we now have our full quota of GPs in the Practice. As a result, we have had to realign the patient lists for each GP so as to ensure there is an equal spread of patients across each doctor & to improve appointment availability

Urgent Treatment Centre

Thinking of attending the emergency department at QA Hospital or the Urgent Treatment Centre at St Mary’s Community Health Campus for an urgent, but non-emergency, need?

Please remember that there is an urgent treatment centre (UTC) near you at Gosport War Memorial Hospital/Petersfield Community Hospital where you may be seen much faster.

Contact 111 on-line, or phone 111 to be directed to the most appropriate place for your need – and to get an allocated appointment slot so you can be seen at the right place, first time by the most appropriate healthcare professional.

The UTC does accept walk-in patients for people unable to use 111, but you may need to wait longer or may be directed to another care facility if clinically appropriate.  

 

 Please help the NHS to ensure our emergency department is kept free for those patients in need of emergency or life-saving care.

Open

Your Denmead Practice is open!  The GPs completed 927 consultations last week of which 45% were face to face

We encourage you to get in touch if you have any health concerns. We have a new way of working, so if you need to discuss your concerns with a doctor, please book an appointment via the NHS App, use the eConsult service below, pop in to book or telephone the practice. We ask you not to Email us as this facility is used for the many messages and results from all the hospitals and clinicians. Receptionists do not receive these Emails so any requests for appointments will not be actioned.

Full details of our new way of working can be found in the attached document:

Welcome to The Denmead Practice Online 

picture.jpg

There has been a Doctor's surgery in Denmead since 1932. Before the Second World War the Doctors lived in Hambledon and had a branch surgery in Denmead - in fact the branch surgery was one of the cottages next to the present Health Centre.

The first Denmead surgery was in Dr Horn's house, it then moved to Ashling Park Road prior to the current Health Centre, which was built on the old village pond in 1974.

Denmead surgery as it is now, is a semi-rural Dispensing Practice with the branch surgery at Hambledon. The practice operates from Health Authority premises and incorporates on-site community services.

The Practice covers an area of 80 square miles and has a list size of just over 9,600 patients. The workload is covered by a combination of male and female partners plus a supportive Practice team.

Our Primary Health Care Team offers comprehensive care for all our patients in Denmead and surroundings villages.

We try to maintain good continuity of care by offering a professional service by your own doctor. We have a range of in-house services and a network of Community staff who can be called upon by your doctor for specialist care.

As a Practice we participate in research studies from time to time through the Primary Care Research Network.
