Update around Covid-19 Vaccination Programme (5th May 2021)

We are starting to release vaccine appointments at Ramsbury Surgery on the National Booking Service (NBS). Please be aware this will be the principle way of booking your vaccine going forward but we are starting slowly to see how it works for us as it's a very different way of running our Clinics. Please use the link here to go onto the NBS.
You can only use this service if any of the following apply:
- you're aged 40 or over
- you'll turn 40 before 1 July 2021
- you're at high risk from COVID-19 (clinically extremely vulnerable)
- you have a condition that puts you at higher risk (clinically vulnerable)
- you have a learning disability
- you're an eligible frontline health or social care worker
- you get a Carer's Allowance, get support following an assessment by your local authority or your GP record shows you're a Carer.
As you will be aware from the National Media, those in Cohort 10 (aged 45 - 49) are now eligible for their first Covid Vaccination. Vaccine supply for first doses continues to be limited for the next couple of weeks but then hopefully increases in availability from the middle of May. To date, we have offered all those patients who fall into Cohort 10 an opportunity to book their appointment. If you have been unable to attend our Clinic this week, please remember you can still go on the National Booking Service to get your vaccination elsewhere. For the next two weeks, we are very busy doing second dose Astra Zeneca and Pfizer clinics for those patients who are due.

Currently due to fluctuating Covid and workload pressures, your prescription may take up to seven working days (EXCLUDING WEEKENDS AND BANK HOLIDAYS). Phone requests cannot be taken. Controlled Drugs cannot be dispensed on Saturdays.

Face Masks

Anyone coming into our Surgery for any reason MUST wear a mouth/nose covering/mask of some sort. It does not need to be a medical mask or anything expensive. Just some kind of covering. This is not just for the patient - this applies to anyone coming in - the Carer, the Parent, the Child - whoever is entering. These are the new rules that we have to abide by. Please support us. Many thanks for your continued understanding and patience. 😷 😷 😷

The exceptions are:

  • children under the age of 11,
  • people with disabilities and
  • those with breathing difficulties
  • those who are travelling with someone who relies on lip reading.

Telephone Call Recording

Telephone calls to and from patients to healthcare organisations may be recorded for legitimate reasons, for example, for medico-legal purposes, staff training, and audit, provided all reasonable steps are taken to inform callers that their call will be recorded.  Ramsbury and Wanborough Surgery’s telephone system records all calls in and out of the Practice for training and monitoring purposes.  The recordings cannot be accessed by any unauthorised personnel and requests to access the call recordings have to go through the Management Team for case by case authorisation.  Recordings of calls made and received by Ramsbury and Wanborough Surgery may also be used to support the learning and development of our staff and to improve the service we provide to our patients.  They may also be used when reviewing incidents, compliments or complaints.  Call recordings will be managed in the same way as all other personal information processed by us and in line with all current legislation.

Platinum Award again

Ramsbury and Wanborough Surgery has once again been awarded the Platinum Carers Award in recognition of the outstanding services and support provided to Carers. This is a combined award from Wiltshire Investors in Carers and Carers Support Wiltshire.  We offer "flexible" appointments for people who are Carers to try to make it easier for you to visit your GP/Nurse.

Communication Channels

In addition to our current methods of communication, we have been provided with a new messaging service called Mjog. MJog is a free App for patients allowing quick and easy two-way communications with us at the Surgery. Patients will be able to use the App straight out of the box, providing patients with a convenient way to manage appointments, be alerted about services and receive reminders from us.

It is free to download with no message costs.  It’s a simple process to cancel appointments in ‘one click’, provide feedback to or complete patient surveys and NHS campaigns (such as Flu vaccinations, cervical smears and NHS Healthchecks).   

MJog gives patients the ability to text back saying “CANCEL” or “DECLINE” for example instead of phoning the Surgery to cancel their appointment or decline a flu vaccination. There is one major difference with this new system – Appointment Confirmation messages will no longer be sent immediately. You will receive a Confirmation Message one week prior to your appointment and then a Reminder message the day before your appointment. If you book your appointment less than one week in advance, you will only receive the Reminder message.

MJog

We have been rated as Outstanding by CQC.
