COVID VACCINATIONS

*** Important message for patients who had a CORONAVIRUS JAB IN DECEMBER 2020 ***

Your second vaccination date IS DUE soon

Did you have your first vaccine at Emsworth Baptist Church on the 22nd or 23rd December? If so, you will receive a letter by the end of the first week in March, telling you the date & time of your second dose. Your appointment will be on either the 12th or 13th March, again at Emsworth Baptist Church. Due to the huge numbers involved, there is very little flexibility to alter the date and time you are given. Rather than delay your vaccine, we would ask that you make every effort to ensure you can attend the appointment you are provided.

We will continue to rollout and invite all patients for their second vaccine, (12 weeks after the first dose), in date order.

The latest newsletters explaining the updated position on COVID-19 vaccinations in our area are attached below.

Patient Newsletter - Denmead Practice - updated 3 February 2021

Patient Newsletter - Havant Borough Group

The Government web site will have the most up to date information: www.gov.uk with the MHRA website also providing helpful details. 

The vaccine will greatly reduce your chance of becoming seriously ill though scientists do not yet know if you can still pass the virus on. It is therefore important that you still follow all the current Government advice such as social distancing, wearing a face mask and staying at home.

We are working down a strictly monitored priority order list that has been set out by NHS England. Along with local practices,  we are inviting patients as fast as we can with the vaccine deliveries that are being received across three hub sites. These sites are at Waterlooville, Emsworth and Hayling Island. We have no plans as yet to vaccinate here at our Denmead premises.

We urge you not to contact us but wait to be called.

Why aren't vaccines being given at the Denmead premises?

  • the vaccines need specialist storage and preparation which we are unable to provide in our building
  • sites must accommodate a huge throughput of patients which we are unable to do here whilst still remaining open for all routine matters for our other patients

Feedback

The vaccination programme is well underway and is receiving some great feedback from our patients, which in turn is putting a smile on the faces of all our staff and volunteers. Patients are impressed at how well organised the 3 hub sites are and how safe they felt when they attended. An example of the feedback is below, this one from Laura, the daughter of a Denmead resident. Many thanks to everyone for their continued support of the practice and staff during these difficult times.    

"I just wanted to send a message to you to thank the amazing volunteers and staff who are administering the COVID-19 vaccine at Emsworth Baptist Church.

I brought my frail 86 year old mother along late yesterday from her home in Denmead and I cannot praise and thank the staff and volunteers enough.

Marshals in high-viz to greet us in the car park and along the entrance route; dozens of people ensuring that we were reassured at every stage of this extremely well organised operation. Everyone was super-efficient and very kind - without being rushed (so important for older folk).

Please could you share my thanks with each and every member of the team and share this publicly if possible.

There is so much negativity out there about how we are dealing with this crisis and yesterday proved to me that this is very often unfounded."

Open

Your Denmead Practice is open!

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, or telephone the practice.

Please call us and we'll be happy to book an appointment

Public Health England recommend that people are vaccinated from December but due to the high volumes, vaccinations have often started early. Be assured that that there is still plenty of time for you to be vaccinated and to be safe.

Face masks 

Unfortunately we do not have sufficient supplies to be able to issue face masks to patients attending the surgery for an appointment.

We have enough for the GPs and Nurses to wear, which will protect you from us; however, you will need to wear a face mask, bandana or scarf if you are asked to attend the surgery.

** The DISPENSARY opening hours have changed to 9-12.30pm  14.30 - 18.00  All prescription enquiries can only be dealt with during these times. We would ask that payments are made by CARD only

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.
