Wishing all our patients a safe festive season and a happy, healthy  and vaccinated 2021!

Please see all our latest updates below:

  • Covid19 vaccination

As a part of our Heart of Hounslow Primary Care Network, we are proud of having been rolling out the covid vaccination service via Heart of Hounslow hub during last week for our patients above 80s.

Covid 19 vaccines are being offered in order of priority. When the vaccine is available to you, you will be contacted. Please do not call your practice or 111 as you will not be able to receive it any sooner.

For more information about the COVID vaccination, please see here.

  • Flu jab 2020-2021

It’s not too late to to get your flu jab done this season to protect you, your family as well as the NHS. The flu jab eligibility has been expanded for this season including all patients from 50 years old.

We will continue with flu clinics on Saturdays in the New Year, however if you can only attend during the week, this can also be arranged if you phone or email us.

Please email kingfisherpractice@nhs.net if you don’t want your flu jab to stop further texts, or if you’ve already had it done elsewhere. It would very much help us to update your records rather than you ignore all our text messages!

Find out more about why all eligible adults should have the flu jab this year in particular here.

Find out more about the nasal flu immunisation for  2-3 year olds here.  If you are Muslim and concerned about the gelatine content, the British Fatwa Council / Karimia Institute has issued a fatwa permitting LAIV for Muslims. See here for more information or discuss the option of a special injection with our nurses if you remain concerned.

Please help us getting your online access service registered. You can submit the application by filling the form here. This will allow you in the future book your appointments, check your test result, order your normal repeated prescription, and check your medical record.

  • New Ways to get your GP contacted

We are still carrying on booking the doctor’s telephone consultation before any face to face offered. You might have realised our high volume of telephone calls. Alternatively, apart from the patient online access service, you can also try our eConsult to submit online GP enquiry for non-urgent issues, or send email to kingfisherpractice@nhs.net for any non-urgent admin enquiries.

  • New Project for Asthma/COPD Patients

Specialist respiratory nurses are going to be helping us review our patients in the New Year. It’s more important than ever that your asthma or COPD is well controlled and you have a personalised asthma “Care Plan”.  Await your invitation to book!

  • For Diabetics Patients

It is important to get your annual diabetic review done at the practice. Please do contact us if you haven’t got your appointment booked.
