17/8/21 Please be aware there is a global shortage of BT vials. General Practice is therefore under strict instructions to only undertake urgent or GP clinically required blood tests. At this time we are not able to perform any routine or regular annual blood tests. If you are unsure, please speak to our reception team or your GP for clarification. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
We have now commenced booking of flu vaccine appointments at the Surgery. Please note we are notifying patients by eligibility in stages to ensure we can cope with contact demand. A proportion of appts are being released online for those who use our online services. The new eligible cohort of 50-64 has been confirmed as continuing for the 21/22 flu season.
COVID-19 Update - This service is now able to resume face to face appointments. Please speak to our reception team who will schedule your appointment for one of the clinics hosted at the surgery.
Catherine Johnson works with the 4 Fleet Practices as a Link Worker and is based at Richmond Surgery on Thursdays. Her role is to provide individual support to help people improve their health and wellbeing by connecting patients to local community services to address their social and practical needs. You may have already spoken with Catherine as she is already calling some vulnerable patients to ask if any assistance is needed.
Catherine describes further what support she can offer:
From March 2016, NHS England required GP practices to declare the average earnings for GPs providing NHS services at each practice.
2021: updated. NHS England provided detailed instructions for calculating this figure. Using these instructions, the average pay for GPs working at Richmond Surgery in the last financial year remained at £45113.00 before tax and National Insurance. This figure is for 5 FT GPs.
