Fleet Medical Centre April Newsletter 2021


IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE READ

Covid Vaccination supply will increase significantly from w/c 22/3/21. The Harlington appointments are not available on The National Booking System. Eligible patients will be contacted by their GP surgery - in NHS cohort order- to be immunised at The Harlington. Please wait for our text/call

Please note: There is very limited free parking for patients in Gurkha Square Car Park. Please be considerate and allow this area to be used by those with mobility problems. There is ample low-cost parking all around the Harlington; we anticipate the vaccination process will require you to stay on site for a maximum of 30 minutes only. If you are going shopping after your vaccination please DO NOT use the Gurkha Square car park so people attending for vaccination are given priority in this area.


We wish to thank Oakley Health Group, Yateley, for their hard work and assistance to date in providing timely access to the Covid vaccination for FMC's elderly and shielded patients. Current guidance is that you MUST have your second immunisation with the same team who gave you the first. Therefore, OHG will contact the relevant patients when it is time for their second vaccination and you are encouraged to attend.

Cervical Screening Saves Lives but we do understand not everyone wishes to be screened. If you would like to defer or completely stop having smears please contact the surgery so that we can inform the cervical screening programme and amend your notes accordingly. 

If you have had your smear done and you are up to date and still get an invitation, please let us know so we can stop you receiving notifications

 



 Welcome to Fleet Medical Centre

We are a large practice with eight doctors and a team of highly skilled nurses and allied health professionals. We share the centre with an independent dental service and pharmacy. We pride ourselves in offering a traditional approach to general practice and run personal lists to ensure the best possible continuity of care. Fleet Community Hospital is adjacent and provides X-ray, physiotherapy, outpatient and inpatient facilities. We aim to meet the needs of chronic and acute medical conditions with emphasis on continuity of care with a named GP where possible. We are also a training Practice with up to three qualified doctors in education posts at any one time.


Serving You

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The lastest technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription, book or cancel an appointment online and view some of your medical record.  Many queries can be answered without direct healthcare professional contact and we encourage you to use links to the NHS Choices website for extensive information and symptom checker advice.  You will also find links throughout the site to more local sources of support and information.


Partners in Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.


Access & Parking

The building is easily accessed by disabled persons and wheelchair users. We also have a portable hearing loop on the front desk.

We have recently installed new signage throughout the practice in order to improve the environment and make access more clear.

We have a limited number of parking spaces. Please ensure that you do not obstruct any other vehicles and do not use the “staff only” parking area, this needs to be kept clear as this is in constant use throughout the day by the Community Nursing team and Home Visit Team who attend house bound and vulnerable patients in and around the Fleet area.
