Lingfield surgery news items July 2024

Flu clinics 2024

The practice will be holding Flu clinics starting in October 2024 for all patients in the approved cohorts. We will contact patients by text campaign or phone, as we get closer to October. Patients may also be offered associated healthcare provision such as Shingles vaccination, Pneumococcal vaccination and a Covid booster if any of these are due.

Covid-19 Booster vaccinations update 2024

Lingfield surgery will be offering the Autumn/Winter Covid vaccination booster program as different cohorts become eligible. The start date has yet to be confirmed by NHSE but is likely to be the beginning of October to run alongside the Flu vaccinations. The practice will update patients closer to the date via our website and the Lingfield Patient Participation Group (PPG)

 Patients without a mobile number on their medical records will receive a telephone call from the practice and will be manually booked into a convenient appointment slot or patients can contact the surgery to request a vaccination appointment. Patients with a mobile number will receive an SMS text invite.

Please check the website for latest updates to covid booster vaccine guidance as this may change with ongoing clinical studies.

Clinical appointments not attended

The practice is experiencing a high level of non-attendance for clinical appointments. In May this was 143 not attended or cancelled appointments that could have been offered to other patients. If you no longer need a booked appointment or are unable to attend will you please let the surgery know so that we can open that appointment for use by another patient.
