Self-care is about keeping fit and healthy, understanding when you can look after yourself, when a pharmacist can help, and when to get advice from your GP practice or another healthcare professional.
For Self Care Week, we're sharing our top tips for self-care, so you know what you can do at home and when you might need to seek further support. Please access our information pages under "self care" to find out more or click on the link below
Update on the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme We know that following the national Government announcement that the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme is due to be opened to a wider group of people that many of you understandably are keen to know when you will be able to have your vaccination. The NHS is working quickly to respond to the new variant (Omicron) and to put in place the next and most complex phase of the successful COVID-19 vaccination programme. Following updated guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) the NHS will shortly set out how staff will expand the booster programme – this will include how booster jabs will be given in priority order so that the most vulnerable people are protected first, while also increasing capacity to vaccinate millions more people in a shorter space of time. The NHS will contact you when you are due to book in for your lifesaving booster vaccination, and when you get the call, it’s vital that people come forward as quickly as possible. Could we please ask people NOT TO call the practice to ask about their vaccine as this takes away our staff from responding to people who need health care. Please could we ask you to continue to remain patient and respectful with our staff as they work hard to support
WELCOME TO KIRKLANDS SURGERY
Established in 1926 by Alistair Mead, the practice serves patients in Copnor and adjoining districts. The doctors and staff at Kirklands surgery in Portsmouth are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups
Situation and Car Parking
We regret that there is insufficient space to be able to offer patients car parking facilities on the premises. However, there is ample space in the driveway for private cars or taxis to `drop off’ and `pick up’ patients who have difficulty walking. The best car parking possibilities are in Powerscourt Road.
NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP FOR ALL PATIENTS
All Kirklands patients now have a named accountable GP. The named accountable GP is responsible for the patients' overall care at the practice. If you would like to know who that GP is please contact the surgery. If you have a preference as to which GP that is, the practice will make every effort to accommodate this request. It will not always be possible for you to see the allocated GP; when booking a routine appointment patients are also free to book the GP of their choice. When requesting a same day emergency appointment it may not always be possible to book the doctor of your choice.
