    Manchester Mental Health Services Consultation.doc Upcoming Surgery Closures ​ No upcoming surgery closures. If you require medical assistance while we are closed please call 111 or visit https://111.nhs.uk/ ​ Our surgery phones are covered by the out of hours service daily between 1pm and 2pm. Calls during this time will not be answered by the surgery. ​ ​ Due to staff shortages we have no option but to close our Gatley phone lines from Monday 28.06.2021. We aim to resolve this as quickly as possible and we will post an update when the phones reopen at Gatley. We apologise for the inconvenience. We are still open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. If you need urgent medical help but it’s not life-threatening, then make sure you use NHS 111 instead of going straight to A&E. You can contact NHS 111 by either calling 111 or visiting the website: https://111.nhs.uk/ If you need to go to A&E, NHS 111 will book an arrival time. This will mean you spend less time in A&E. This also helps with social distancing. NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book appointments at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics. Remember if you or someone you know has a life-threatening illness or injury then you should still call 999 immediately. 111 Service Update Covid-19 Vaccination Update You may have seen in the media that we will soon be offering a third dose covid vaccination to anyone over the age of 12 who was severely immunosuppressed at the time of their first or second dose. This includes the following people: being treated for acute or chronic leukaemia at the time of vaccination with advanced Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or Aids who have had a stem-cell transplant in the past two years who have had therapy for a solid-organ transplant in the six months before vaccination who have had immunosuppressive chemotherapy or radiotherapy in the six months before vaccination who have had high doses of corticosteroids in the month before vaccination Please be aware that those eligible for a third dose will be contacted as soon as possible, to discuss their needs and arrange an appointment for a third dose. These patients will not need to contact the practice. It is also recommended that individuals are reminded that household contacts of those who are immunosuppressed are advised to be vaccinated. Individuals aged 17 ¾ and over can book via the National Booking System and children aged 12 and over should contact the practice. Practice News ​ ​ Northenden & Gatley surgeries are still closed for walk in queries. Our telephone lines are open, however our call volumes are high so please try to use the online resources to contact us so we can help you with your query. ​ COVID UPDATE - 19th July Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward. From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery – patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE. We do understand that it can be frustrating, but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the COVID vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people. In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e-consult and by video). We thank you for your understanding and co-operation. ​ ​ ​ Covering your face when you’re in the GP practice Even though the restrictions on wearing a facemask lifted on Monday 19 July, the guidance from Public Health England confirms that people must still wear a face mask in healthcare settings like your GP practice and hospitals. This is to stop the spread of Covid-19 and keep yourself and our staff safe when they’re at work. What does this mean for me? When you book an appointment with your GP you will have a telephone or online appointment where possible but if you need to be seen in person, a GP will book you into the practice. When you arrive at your GP practice, yourself and anyone accompanying you must wear a face covering such as a face mask. You can find out how to make a cloth face covering on the Gov.uk website . Staff in the practice will be wearing personal protective equipment. Doors and windows will be kept open to let any Covid particles out into the air. Your practice will take the necessary steps to make sure that the premises is Covid-19 secure and safe for you to visit. Remember to wash your hands regularly and use the hand sanitiser provided, keep your distance from people, and avoid touching your face. For more information about the current infection prevention and control guidance visit the Gov.UK website . ​ We are working alongside Manchester University to improve our Covid vaccination service. One of their students is collecting anonymous feedback to better understand the perspective of young people. If you are willing to spare a couple of minutes to help us improve our service, please follow this link: https://www.qualtrics.manchester.ac.uk/jfe/form/SV_8DlU1TkuswN2pvw ​ We now have a Facebook page! Please visit us and click 'like' it to receive updates from us and share posts to reach the wider community. https://www.facebook.com/Northenden-Group-Practice-107231497693271/ ​ You can find your NHS number at https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/find-nhs-number/ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ Due to the ongoing pandemic, we may ask you to access GP services differently. This is so we can limit face-to-face contact and help stop the spread of COVID-19. Please watch the following video for more information. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ Anyone coming into the practice building will need to wear a face covering. Face coverings should not be used for children under the age of 3 and exceptions can be made for people with sensory needs and those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly. For more information: https://www.gov.uk/…/face-masks-and-coverings-to-be-worn-by… ​ Unfortunately we ARE NOT able to provide these for patients.

It's one of the 12 INTs in the city - each working across an approximate population of 30-50,000 people. On a practical level INTs bring NHS community health and adult social care services together to improve how they work for people. Staff will be located together in the same building and can work together. That means that district nurses, social workers and other staff meet each day, carry out joint visits and discuss the best plan for people in their care. As little as 10% of a population’s health and wellbeing is linked to access to Healthcare so the teams also work in the place they are based with other organisations (for example the police, council neighbourhood teams and housing), and importantly local community groups and people who live in the area to improve services. The neighbourhood team hold bimonthly Neighbourhood Partnership meetings and are committed to ensuring that plans, initiatives and solutions are genuinely co-produced, involving local residents, organisations and communities of interest.

  • Covid-19 Vaccination Programme | northenden-gp

    COVID-19 vaccination update Please do not contact the practice to ask for a COVID-19 vaccination. You will be contacted when you are eligible. We have been asked by NHS England to start delivering the COVID-19 mass vaccination programme from 15 December. This will be done by working together with other local GP Practices (called a Primary Care Network) to provide the vaccines, rather doing vaccinations here at the practice. To enable everyone to get the vaccine in a safe and controlled way, a prioritisation list has been established so the vaccine can be delivered to groups who need it first. We will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about location and date, so please don't contact the practice to ask for a vaccine before then. We are working hard to plan the delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations, while continuing to deliver the largest ever flu vaccine campaign and supporting our patients with routine and urgent health requests. On that basis, we are unable to answer additional questions about the COVID vaccine. ​ However, to help answer your likely questions, we have tried to summarise the key information you need to know about the upcoming COVID-19 vaccination campaign, along with sharing details of the way patient groups will be prioritised: The vaccine will be given in order of priority to those at highest risk first. We will be in contact with you with information about where and when you will need to receive the vaccine. Please act on your invite when it comes, and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them. Please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives. ​ What are the priority groups? Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers All those 75 years of age and over All those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (excluding pregnant women and those under 16) All those 65 years of age and over All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality All those 60 years of age and over All those 55 years of age and over All those 50 years of age and over Rest of the population (priority to be determined) Click to see full screen COVID Vaccination Update ​ As many of you are aware, GP practices are now commencing with the Covid-19 vaccination, to do this we are required by NHS England to deliver this in particular age groups, to deliver in batches of 975 vaccines at a time and also to deliver this vaccine from one site. This means we needs to work collaboratively with other local practices to deliver this as a group to our patient population. The other practices we are working with are all within the Wythenshawe area. Therefore, we will be providing vaccinations at a venue local to all. We are so very pleased that we are able to start with the over 80's last week and we will continue to work down the cohort lists. ​ We are asking patients not to contact the practice regarding the Covid-19 vaccine as we will contact you soon via text message, telephone or by letter.
