April 2022 News

Spring Covid Booster Programme

Lambourn Surgery and Lambourn Pharmacy will be offering a covid booster vaccination to patients aged 75 years and over and patients with a weakened immune system.

Please do not call the surgery but wait to be invited and follow the instructions on the letter or text you receive.

Blood Pressure Machine

There is a new blood pressure machine in the waiting room at Lambourn Surgery for patients to use if requested by their doctor or whenever they would like to. You will receive a printed slip with the results on which can be handed to reception so they can be recorded on your records.

Missed appointments

Missed appointments continue to be a cause for concern for our medical team. On average 55, doctor appointments and 45 nurse appointments are missed each month. The cost of such lost time is often mentioned in the press but the key implication is the lost opportunity for others requiring appointments. Please help to reduce the number of missed appointments at Lambourn Surgery by letting them know if your appointment is no longer needed.

Keeping in touch

Did you know that you can get text reminders sent to your phone for appointments at Lambourn Surgery? You can sign up for this service by completing a form at reception or online here. If you are a carer or family member you can receive these reminders on behalf of someone who does not have or is unable to use a mobile phone, please contact reception. The surgery will need the patient’s written consent.

Communications

If you have any ideas for improving communications or other aspects of the Lambourn Surgery service please let us know. You can contact the PPG via email; ppgchairpersonlambourn@gmail.com or in writing via the surgery office addressed to the Chairman of the PPG.
