Finchampstead Surgery: Update 23/04/2021

Cervical Smears

Following posts on social media recently regarding the availability of booking cervical smear appointments at local surgeries we would like to update you on the current availability at Finchampstead Surgery

We are still doing regular cervical smear appointments, we have carried out the following appointments this year

January – 62 appointments

February – 89 appointments

March – 105 appointments

April – 70 appointments so far

We currently have a short waiting list of people who have phoned up wanting to book appointments and will call patients and book them in as soon as we have availability.

Our Nurses have been busy throughout the pandemic with cervical smears, baby immunisations, dressings/wound care, blood tests, removal of stitches, review of chronic diseases and much more as well as vaccinating thousands of patients against Covid 19

From May 2021 we will be employing an extra HCA at the Surgery who can take some of the work from the Nurses which will enable us to put on even more smear appointments and hopefully reduce the list.

We hope you will appreciate the hard work of our Nurses and everyone at the Surgery who are working as hard as possible to maintain the service for everyone in a safe manner.

Covid Vaccinations

We are currently doing second vaccinations at the Surgery 11-12 weeks after your first vaccination.  We will call you or text you to make an appointment.

Please DO NOT contact us unless you had your first vaccination at the Surgery before the middle of February and have still not been invited for your second vaccination.
