Down at the Doctors July 2024

Posted on January 29th, 2024

The covid clinic at Little Hadham on the 25th May was well attended and I have some numbers for you. In total 858 patients were eligible for a Spring Booster and to date 540 patients have received the booster which is 63%. This is well above the national average (55%) as uptake has been significantly lower this time around. There is talk of another booster in Autumn which will run alongside the flu vaccination, and I have secured a few dates with the village hall as the venue is excellent and perfectly set up for clinics – more details nearer the time.

I will now hand over to one of the team.

Hello, my name is Charlie Parker and I have worked here at Much Hadham Health Centre for nearly 4 years. Some of you may know of me or have spoken to me before and I have had the chance to get to know some of our lovely patients. Last year I took on an exciting new role as head receptionist alongside 5 other fantastic ladies – Jody, Tracy, Verity, Abbie and Debra who you may also be aware of or had the pleasure to speak with.

With regards to the appointments if you feel your problem is medically urgent, please call from 8.30am and for routine appointments we would appreciate calls from 10am which enables us to deal with the morning rush. The team will ask for a brief outline of what your issue is to enable us to place you with the right clinician. I would just like to take this opportunity to say that we will always do our best to help you as much as we possibly can.

Not only am I head receptionist I also manage a number of administrational roles here at the surgery. One of them includes all the private work that needs to be completed by the GPs. This includes firearms reports, insurance forms, private letters, holiday cancellation claims etc. There is a charge for non-NHS work and the fees are in line with the BMA guidelines. These reports can take up to 28 days to complete. As you can appreciate the GP’s have a heavy workload, and medical reports can take significant time to complete/prepare. A lot of the time the GP’s will complete these reports after work or at weekends. Of course, we will always try to complete these as quickly as we can for you but sometimes this is not always possible.

If I have not already had the pleasure of speaking with you then I look forward to speaking with you in the future.

Kind regards
