PARKING AT ROTHERFIELD SURGERY:

We realise that parking can be difficult at times, but we would like to politely remind patients that access to Court Meadow (at the top of the car park) must be clear at all times. 

In addition, please refrain from parking alongside the fence adjacent to the field, as this land is not owned by the partners of the practice and you do risk receiving a parking ticket from the owners of the land.

 

Covid Vaccinations

Update 11/01/2021

We are pleased to confirm that a Covid vaccination programme should (subject to vaccine delivery) start in Crowborough this weekend 16th January.

Please do not contact the practice for an appointment

The Crowborough vaccinations will be at Saxonbury House practice in Croft Road as only one centre is currently possible in any locality. 

There has been a considerable amount of work involved to set up this centre and all the GPs in the locality are working together to enable vaccination as quickly as stocks will allow.

NHSE have given practices a list of priorities for the Vaccination and full details are available at:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/?priority-taxon=774cee22-d896-44c1-a611-e3109cce8eae

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-why-you-are-being-asked-to-wait/why-you-have-to-wait-for-your-covid-19-vaccine

 

We will telephone patients with an allocated appointment time and to explain the process.  As part of that conversation we will ask some questions and  collect some additional information from you to complete the process.

We will not be able to book appointments if you telephone the practice as all our bookings are being arranged by a dedicated team of our staff.

On the day of your Vaccination please do not arrive at Saxonbury House Surgery more than 5 minutes before your appointment time as queuing will be outside because of social distancing.  There is NO opportunity to vaccinate earlier than your appointment time because of the process we have to follow.

Parking will be at the Waitrose Car Park (Thank you to Waitrose for their help) so please allow time to walk from the Waitrose car park.

We can only schedule appointments when we have vaccine delivery dates and we will contact patients as soon as we can.

Thank you for your help

Mass Vaccination Sites/Hubs 12/1/2021

 The press will be announcing the location of a number of mass vaccination sites over the coming weeks - we do not have details at this stage.

You may receive a letter inviting you to make an appointment at one of these sites and if you are able to travel to the site you may wish to make an appointment as you may get the vaccine sooner than if you wait for a call from the surgery.

 

You do not have to attend a mass vaccination site - this is your choice and we appreciate that some patients may not be able to travel to these sites.

 

If you decide to book an appointment please be assured that all the information and details of your vaccination will be sent to your GP in due course so your records will be updated.

 

If you decide not to book an appointment at one of these sites we will still be contacting you when you we have appointment that is available for you.

Please do not contact the surgery regarding any letters for the vaccination centres as we have no other details. 



Attending the Surgery

Due to the increase in positive COVID cases the surgery doors will now be locked, but we are open.  A member of the reception team will speak with you through the window and ask you COVID related questions and take your temperature before allowing you into the building.  We have not taken this decision lightly, we want to protect staff and patients.  With the door locked please knock on the window to gain someones attention.  We appreicate your co-operation during this difficult time.  Remember if the door is locked during opening hour we are OPEN. We will now be asking patients to wear face masks/coverings when attending the surgery. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

 

eConsult will be going live on 8/4/2020, to find out more Patient facing video with subtitles
