Welcome to York Street Medical Practice

 

Important message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme

Across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.

All adults from Monday 13 December are eligible to book their covid booster. You can prebook your booster appointment 2 months from the date of your second dose, although the appointments you will be offered will be 3 months from your second dose.  To book this  click here

All children aged 12-15 are now eligible to have their vaccine. The vaccination will be delivered through a schools-based vaccination programme. If your child missed their vaccination at school, or if you would prefer to book at a vaccination centre rather than wait until your child’s school is visited, you can book an appointment for them here 

For more information about who is eligible and to book your vaccination (1st, 2nd or booster) please click here

Dr Anthony Males

 

After almost 30 years working at York Street Medical Practice, Dr Males has decided to retire. He left us at the end of December 2021. He has overseen significant developments within the Practice during his time with us, not least, the move to our modern, purpose built premises. As well as being our Senior Partner, has been heavily involved in shaping the development of Primary Care in the City of Cambridge over a number of years. He has also helped to train an enormous number of medical students and Trainee GPs, all of whom have benefited from his considerable skill and knowledge. I know all our patients will wish him well in his retirement.

We are also delighted to welcome to our Partnership, Dr Aneja Malladi who will be joining us in February 2022. She brings with her a wealth of experience gained as a GP in Birmingham. I know she is looking forward to starting with us and getting to know some of our patients.

 

Visiting the Practice

Our doors are open but you should only come in if you have a booked appointment. For all other matters, please do not come in but telephone us instead on 01223 364116. .

If you do have an appointment, please continue to wear a face covering and maintain safe social distancing when attending the surgery. On arrival please use the self check in machine and take a seat. Please do not attend your appointment if you are showing symptoms of coronavirus, have had a positive test or been advised to self isolate’.

We have a limited number of face to face appointments to book in advance. These are to be used by patients that need to be seen by the GP. We are still booking the majority of our GP consultations by phone and you will then be invited for a face to face appointment if needed.

Face to face nurse appointments can be booked a week in advance.

We are following the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings which will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.

Thank you for your continued support

 

Additional Clinical Sessions

In order to help meet increased demand during the winter months, we are employing additional clinicians to provide more appointments. Funding for this has been supplied by our local Clinical Commissioning Group.

 

Hospital appointment help desk 

The Covid19 pandemic has added to the strain on all NHS services. As a result of this, waiting list times for outpatient and specialist appointments and procedures have increased. The practice has no direct access to the hospital appointment lists.

If you have been referred by your GP/are waiting for :
• An outpatient appointment
• An appointment for hospital tests (eg scans)
• A date for an operation or other treatment
• A follow-up from your hospital team

and you have a query about what is happening, please contact the Patient Helpdesk
on 0800 048 5800.

Only call the practice if your condition has genuinely deteriorated, when you
will be reviewed by one of the clinical team and appropriate action can be taken in
regard to your care.

 

Seasonal Flu

We have now used our supplies of vaccines for patients aged 50 and over and do not anticipate receiving any more doses.  If anyone still needs a vaccine please contact one of the local pharmacies. We are still booking childhood flu vaccinations for eligible 2 and 3 years olds. Please call the surgery on 01223 364116 if your child is eligible and you wish them to have a flu vaccination.

This guidance is HERE. If you feel you are exempt from wearing a face mask you can download a card HERE
