Diabetic Eye Screening: Important Notice about Diabetic Eye Screening
The National Diabetic Eye Screening Team have recently issued guidance to restart screening for all in a phased approach. Our Restoration Plan has been agreed with the local NHS England and NHS Improvement Commissioners and we are very pleased and eager to start screening once again.
We will invite people to screening appointments in the following order:
Invite over next few weeks and months - those who are pregnant, under digital surveillance, newly diagnosed, had background retinopathy at last appointment (R1M0) or Did Not Attend their last appointment.
Next Year - Those who at their last appointment had no retinopathy or maculopathy (R0M0) are at much lower risk of developing diabetic retinopathy.
Should you notice any severe changes to your sight in the meantime, please telephone your local Hospital Eye Department or A&E.
The Bookings Team will be in touch to rearrange all other appointments once screening resumes.
Thank you for your patience.
We have appointments available for over 65's flu vaccines. These can be booked online via patient access/NHS app or by calling the surgery.
Go here for the latest detailed information from the government and other organisations.
Unfortunately we have been hit by both clinician illness along with staff self isolation. Therefore we are severely short staffed.
We will revert to telephone and video consultations for the majority, however patients will be seen face to face in extreme circumstances.
Sadly, other local surgeries are experiencing a similar problem, therefore there is no local staff cover available. We would appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
As our patients are aware, Mansfield Park Surgery has kept its doors open throughout most of the pandemic, and the GPs have ensured that face to face appointments, where appropriate, have been maintained.
As we move forward, and the lockdown measures are eased nationally, we will continue to keep the safety of our patients as our priority.
We are now slowly moving towards restoring our former appointment system, and enabling patients to book appointments up to 4 weeks in advance with the GP of their choice. The GPs will continue to conduct telephone and video consultations as a preference, but if you feel a face to face consultation is more appropriate to your needs, you can request this.
To maintain social distancing, the waiting room will be restricted to 6 people, therefore there may be occasions where patients will be asked to remain in their cars until room becomes available.
We will continue to review all measures as we emerge out of the pandemic.
Dr Celia Cornes will take her three month sabbatical with her family starting on 21st June. She postponed it from last year due to the obvious work commitments of the pandemic. We are very fortunate to have Dr Nicki Purnell, who many patients have come to know, take over her clinics and patient care whilst she is away.
Please note that after Wednesday 9 June at 18:30pm you will not be able to send a GP online consultation outside our normal surgery opening hours. Our opening hours are Monday to Friday, 08:00 am - 18:30 pm.
There is currently an international shortage of blood bottles used for taking samples and clinicians working in GP practices, hospitals, community and mental health trusts and ambulance trusts have been asked to suspend non-essential blood tests.
Our clinicians and managers in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight are working together to be more efficient. We will ensure we don't waste blood bottles and that we don't duplicate tests which have already been done. We are being thoughtful about which tests are ordered and prioritising those tests which will have an immediate impact on the diagnosis or treatment.
Our clinicians and their teams are working hard to prioritise our blood tests and we appreciate your patience whilst we put in place systems to manage this difficulty safely.
We would like to reassure all our patients that this disruption in supply should not affect any essential blood tests and any tests that are delayed will be rescheduled as soon as possible. We are working closely with NHS England to follow their guidance.
We will continue to provide you with updates regarding this and thank you for your support.
If you are already booked for a blood test and do not hear from us, please attend as arranged.

Covid-19 - proof of vaccination
The practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.
From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from: · the NHS App which you can download from app stores · the NHS website
It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.
If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119.
Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive. When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
