Flu Immunisation Consent Form
If you have a child who is attending the surgery for their flu vaccination who isn't going to be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian and is instead being brought into the surgery by a relative or family friend, a concent form will need to be filled in by the parent/guardian to be handed in at the time of vaccination. The concent form should have been included on a link on the inital invite SMS but you can also download from here.

COVID-19 Vaccine for 16 & 17-year-olds...
We are aware that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has recommended the extension of the Covid-19 vaccination programme to 16 and 17-year-olds. We are awaiting further guidance from NHS England on when the programme will commence and how the vaccinations will be administered to this age group. Please do not contact your GP – eligible young people will be contacted when the programme commences to advise on the next steps.

You can prove your Vaccine status from the 17th of May...
You can prove your vaccine status from the 17th May by either logging onto the NHSapp where your status will be displayed in the app or by telephoning 119 who will send you a letter with the vaccine status on to your home address (the letter can take 5 days to arrive).
Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

Urine Samples. Read about our procedure change.
From the 1st March, we will no longer accept urine samples from patients who haven't first spoke to a clinician. The new process will require the patient to contact the surgery via their usual method where they will be lead through our online triaging service questionnaire (you can do this yourself on a computer or smartphone/tablet: https://access.klinik.co.uk/contact/beech-tree-surgery ).
Once the questionnaire is completed a clinician with review your answers and contact you directly with the next step. This may still result in a request for a urine sample to be brought to the surgery but this step maybe unnecessary and the clinician may be able to proscribe based on your triage results.
As this is a new process, there maybe changes and errors while we implement it so your patience during this time is greatly appreciated.
