Community Nurses

The district nursing team is a multi-skilled group of nurses able to carry out nursing care in the patient’s own home. They are able to assess health needs and provide care and advice. The aim of the nursing team is to try and enhance the patient’s quality of life and to help maintain their independence within the community. The district nurses may be contacted via SPA (single point of access) by calling 0300 300 7777.

Health Visitors

Health visitors are qualified nurses who have further specialist training in health promotion and education. The aim of the service is to identify and meet the needs of the local population served.

As you may know from the national news media, the Government has announced a rapid expansion of the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme, with boosters to be offered to all eligible adults.  General Practice has a significant role to play in delivering these vital vaccinations and in line with NHS guidance our practice is temporarily focusing on rolling out this programme as a priority.

 

This means that routine services will be unavailable for a short period of time. Practices will continue to provide urgent care for patients, for example reviewing potentially serious underlying problems such as known or suspected cancer.

As a consequence of this national directive, practices will have to work differently and you might notice the following:

 

 

Our practice hopes to be able to resume normal service as soon as possible. We are following national guidance from NHS England and NHS Improvement, and local guidance from the Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Clinical Commissioning Groups, who are supportive of our response to managing complaints. All complaints/letters/enquiries will be reviewed, and response provided at the first opportunity in line with clinical prioritisation.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding, particularly when dealing with our practice team who are continuing to work hard to support the vital vaccine booster programme roll out.
