Welcome to our website which we hope you will find both useful and informative.
With patient’s needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to help you find the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find resources on cancer screening, links to a number of diverse support organisations or you can visit the self help page where you can even make your own referals directly to some specialist services.
Message from the Park and St Francis Research Team: "Help Fight Covid-19 by aiding research"
'Park and St Francis Surgery is supporting vital COVID 19 research. As part of this, we are helping to carry out a national priority research study called PRINCIPLE. If you have symptoms of COVID 19, are aged 65 or over, OR are aged 50-64 and have an existing health condition, you may be eligible to join this important study. If you'd like to discuss taking part in PRINCIPLE, please contact us.
Please see the Primary Care Clinical Trials Unit website for full details of this study.
If you'd like to know more about COVID 19 research and how you can contribute, please visit the Be Part of Research site, which is run by the National Institute for Health Research.'
Covid 19 Vaccination Information
Please do not contact the surgery to enquire about your Covid-19 vaccination - this is diverting our resources and blocks phone lines for people who are not well.
The progress of vaccination coverage is currently being limited by vaccine supply to our surgery - this is a national issue - not something in our control.
When it is your turn, we will contact you to book an appointment for your vaccination.
Please make sure your contact details, are correct and that you answer your phone if you are expecting us to call you - calls from the surgery usually come up as "number with-held" or "private number".
Public Health England have instructed us on who to vaccinate and in what order - this is subject to regular revision as the situation changes and their strategy is revised.
Please do not contact the surgery to discuss, debate or challenge these decisions which are being imposed on us at a National level - it only blocks our phone lines and prevents us from dealing with people who need our help when they are unwell.
At present, the order of priority for vaccination is:
- Residents in care homes for older adults and their staff - in progress - awaiting further vaccine delivery
- All those aged 80 years and over and frontline Health and Social Care workers - in progress - awaiting further vaccine delivery
- All those 75 years of age and over - not started yet
- All those aged 70 years or over and the clinically vulnerable individuals ( not including pregnant women and those aged less than 16 years) - not started yet
- All those aged 65 years and over - not starting yet
- All those aged 16 to 65 years of age in an at risk group - not starting yet
- All those aged 60 years and over - not starting yet
- All those aged 55 years and over - not starting yet
- All those aged 50 years and over - not starting yet.
Patients who cannot be vaccinated are:
People aged less than 16 years of age
Those who have had a confirmed anaphylactic reaction to a previous dose of a Covid 19 vaccine or have had a confirmed anaphylactic reaction to any component of the vaccine or residues from the manufacturing process.
Flu Vaccination Update - 24th November 2020
There is currently a national shortage of flu vaccinations and we currently have none left.
As soon as we receive new stocks, we will contact remaining eligible patients, including people in the age 50-65 group, who are also being offered a flu vaccination this year.
