IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING EXTEND ACCESS APPOINTMENTS FROM 01/05/2021
Chancery Lane Surgery has been honored and proud to have hosted the Extended Access service for the past two and a half years which has benefited many patients registered with practices within North Warwickshire and Nuneaton & Rugby, plus further afield across Coventry & Rugby.
However, with the introduction of Primary Care Networks (PCN's) it is now time that other practices take up the batton to offerand deliver this service to their patients closer to home.
Chancery Lane will continue to offer the Extended Access Service on a Monday with both GP and nursing appointments from 6:30-9:30 pm and for a limited period a GP service from 6:30 to 9:30 pm on a Thursday which will be moving to Springhill Medical Centre later in the Summer.

NOTICE TO PATIENTS ELIGIBLE FOR VACCINATION
VACCINATIONS ARE BY INVITATION & CONFIRMED APPOINTMENTS ONLY AND WILL BE GIVEN AT ATHERSTONE SURGERY, RATCLIFFE ROAD, ATHERSTONE, CV9 1EU
Eligible patients will be invited in priority order as per NHSE guidance starting with patients who are 80 years of age and over. You will be given a second appointment when you have received the first dose as the vaccine must be given by two injections a minimum of 21 days apart. Patients must attend both appointments for the vaccine to be effective. Patients cannot attend the second appointment if they did not attend the first appointment as we will not be able to vaccinate.
It is important to note that patients who do not ACCEPT THE FIRST APPOINTMENT cannot attend the hub within 21 days for the second injection. Patients must advise via the designated email address or call centre number if they cannot make the first appointment date / time.
We can only administer vaccines at the proposed site. (We are unable to provide vaccines at patients home as the vaccine cannot be moved off the site. A separate home visiting service is being planned for 2021). All care home and residential home patients will also be vaccinated by a separate service.
PATIENTS MUST BRING THE LETTER WITH THEM TO THE BOOKED APPOINTMENT AND COMPLETE THE SAFETY INFORMATION PRIOR TO ATTENDING.
IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS
You may have seen in the news this week (w/c 14/9/2020) about GPs being asked to provide more face-to-face appointments and we wanted to give you an update on the current situation.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have remained open and seeing patients. To help keep both you and our own staff safe, we have changed the way our appointments work: you may have been offered a telephone appointment or even a video appointment instead of being asked to come in to the practice. Offering these types of appointments has helped some patients to access appointments they wouldn’t normally have been able to attend due to their commitments, such as their work or caring responsibilities.
We understand that some of you may prefer face-to-face appointments, but hopefully you understand why we have had to make these changes. Where someone has needed to come into practice, either because it was medically necessary or important for their care, we have and will continue to ask them to come in and see us.
COVID-19 is still an ongoing problem and we need to keep our focus on keeping you safe and reducing your risk of catching the virus. Here are some of the ways we’ve been doing this:
- Regularly cleaning to a high standard all areas of the practice;
- Wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE);
- Maintaining social distancing in the practice.
We also need to look after our staff, who are people just like you. Some may have health issues or other factors that can potentially put them more at risk, so it is vital we keep them safe so that we can keep providing a good quality service to you.
Increasing the number of patients in the surgery means we increase the risk for everyone. We want to do the best we can for our patients because we care about you and the people we look after.
As always, we are available to talk to patients, and we want to hear from those who need us. While we understand patients’ frustrations with the current situation, we hope that you will continue to help and support us, as you have always supported the NHS, so that we can go on providing you with care and support in the coming weeks and months.
