Coronavirus vaccination update
You may know that some hospitals have now started to invite patients to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and this week the practice, as part of a grouping of 6 PCNs, delivered its first vaccinations to around 60 of our older patients. Due to uncertainties about the timing of supply, we are unable to give any indication of the speed of the roll-out and when each of the priority cohorts will be vaccinated. Please do not telephone us to ask when or if you are going to get a Covid vaccine. We will keep you updated as best we can through this website and you will be contacted individually if and when you are invited to have a vaccine. Please act on your invitation when the time comes, make sure you attend your appointments and that you return for the second part of the vaccination on the date that is given to you. And, in the meantime, please continue to abide by the social distancing and hand hygiene guidelines which will save lives. Thank you.

Named Accountable GP
All patients at Chineham Medical Practice have a named, accountable GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. Your named GP has been allocated to you by the practice
If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception at your next visit. Please do not telephone the practice for this information, our phone lines are very busy and primarily are for patients with urgent needs.
You can still talk to or make appointments to see any of our doctors or nurses, not just your named GP.
New patients will be given their named accountable GP at the point of registration by the receptionist.
If you are 75 and over you will have already been allocated a GP.
