Covid-19 Vaccination Roll Out
We are so proud of the hard work and dedication our staff at West Walk Surgery have shown during the Pandemic.
We would like to thank our local community for the good wishes and gifts that we have received.
Our Primary Care network that consists of 5 local surgeries has successfully administered nearly 50,000 vaccines!
All of our over 18 year old patients have now been invited to get their vaccinations.
All of our over 50 year old patients and most of our over 40 year olds who have been vaccinated by West Walk Surgery have now had their second vaccinations.
We Are Here For You
Throughout the pandemic, our staff have strived to offer the best possible service to our patients, whilst ensuring we adhere to strict Government guidelines at all times.
Services that we have previously not been permitted to provide are beginning to be rolled out again as lock down rules ease.
Please be kind to our staff. They remain committed to providing the very best care available. Often, we can offer an appointment with a highly trained Clinician that can help you more quickly than waiting for a GP. Below are Clinicians who may be best placed to help you,
- Advanced Nurse Practitioner - Liz Rogers
- Paramedic - Matt Tidy
- Physician Associate - Sophie Pasley
- Clinical Pharmacist - Nicola Bruce
- Local Pharmacy referral scheme
Please answer the questions our Care Navigators ask you. This will enable them to signpost you to the person best suited to deal with your individual needs.
Please allow 72 working hours before collecting.
Our Senior Partner, Dr Andrew Moncrieff retired recently, he has looked after patients at the surgery for over 20 years. We wish him every happiness in his retirement.
We are currently training 3 new members for the Care Navigation team.
Thank you in advance for your patience whilst they undergo training.
Two new roles have been added to the team,
- Physician Associate - Sophie Pasley.
- Pharmacist Technician -Annie Mardon
Macmillan Mighty Hike
This year our chosen charity to support is Macmillan Cancer Support.
18 enthusiastic staff from West Walk Surgery signed up to walk a marathon in aid of Macmillan in September 2020 but this was cancelled due to the CVID pandemic. We have now had confirmation that it will go ahead in September 2021 and are excited to be dusting off our walking boots!
Most people are probably aware of Macmillan Cancer Support and having so much first-hand experience of patients with cancer, we wanted to something to help. We are looking forward to the challenge (and buying some good walking shoes!)
