Welcome to Park and St Francis Surgery
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.
New Telephone System
On Tuesday 18th January, we will be having a new phone system installed.
We do hope that this will run smoothly, however, there may be some 'teething issues' during this time.
If you do experience any issues getting through on the phone during the switch over, please accept our apologies and be assured that we will work to resolve them as quickly as possible.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Beware: Covid Passport Scam E-mails
We have had reports of scam e-mails being sent to patients reguarding "Covid passport", purporting to be from Patient Access.
Patient Access users are advised to therefore check the name and e-mail address of the sender: all e-mails from Patient Access will come from: @patientaccess.com. Do not click on any log-in links that you receive via e-mail, instead visit the site using the address bar of your browser - this way you know you are on the genuine Patient Access log in page. You can find more information and guidance on their information security page.
Covid 19 and Vaccination Information
Help us reduce the impact of the next Covid-19 wave by booking your vaccination with us.
We are still employing social distancing measures, using face masks and hand sanitising. Please attend suitably dressed to allow quick access to the top of your arm.
Please also ensure your contact details are up to date - mobile numbers and e-mail details are especially useful, since they allow us to reduce our carbon footprint, cut down the practice running costs - as well as improve efficency in organising your care.
Everyone eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine who has not yet received the jab is urged to do so as soon as possible to protect themselves, loved ones and our communities against the virus.
If you are aged over 16, you are now able to book your vaccination using the NHS App, or by calling our vaccination booking hotline 02380 240980. (lines are open Monday-Friday 08.30-12.00).
Please do not contact the GP surgery about COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing a person’s COVID-19 vaccination status.

Message from the Park and St Francis Research Team: "Please help us Fight Covid-19 by volunteering for research"

Your contributions, have been, and continue to be, vital in the development of effective strategies, treatments and vaccines that will help control the virus, both now, and as it continues to evolve."
