Dr Jenkins - Maternity Leave

Many of you will already be aware that Dr Jenkins is currently pregnant.  She will be finishing work during July. Dr Jenkins has made the decision to extend her maternity leave and not return to the practice after her baby is born.  Being a GP Partner is demanding, especially when young children are involved and Dr Jenkins has decided to focus on her family for the time being.

 

We are pleased to announce that Dr Jenkins had a healthy and gorgeous baby girl.  Both are doing really well.

 

 

Doctor Changes
Dr Subrata Banerjea

It is with sadness that we need to announce that Dr Subrata Banerjea left the practice on 5 May 2017.  Dr Banerjea has been with us since June 2016 but has decided to leave permanent employment and locum.


Dr Swarnalakshmi

We are however delighted to confirm that Dr Swarnalakshmi (known as Dr Swarna) will be joining us permanently during the summer.  Swarna has been working with the practice as a locum for some time now and after an extended trip overseas for family reasons she is returning to the UK and our practice very soon.

Meningitis B immunisation programme

Following the recent media coverage about the death of a young girl from invasive meningococcal disease caused by Meningitis B (Men B), Public Health England and NHS England have clarified for practices whether or not it is possible for us to vaccinate children who fall outside the eligible group.

This information is taken from Public Health England publications and the GOV.UK website however in summary:

 

What is the national policy for Men B immunisation?

The Men B immunisation programme started on 1 September 2015 for babies aged 2 months, i.e. babies born on or after 1 July 2015. There was a limited catch-up programme for babies born on or after 1 May 2015. The routine schedule is for immunisation to be given at 2 and 4 months with the primaries, with a booster at 12 months.

 

Can a practice vaccinate children born before 1 May 2015 if parents request it?
No. The national stock of Bexsero® should only be used to vaccinate children who are eligible for NHS vaccination
