Dear Patients

We are heartbroken to share that our friend and colleague Kim Barrington-Hines passed away last Thursday (23/09/2021). Kim has been an Advanced Clinical Practitioner with Jessop since July 2017 and was a huge presence in our team over the last few years. We will all remember Kim for so many reasons especially her kindness, strength and day-brightening sense of humour. Kim had such an incredible passion for her work and caring for patients was always central in her thoughts.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kim’s family and loved ones. We know that many of our patients will have got to know Kim as she cared for them over the last few years. We have set up a MacMillan Tribute Fund in Kim’s honour for friends, patients and colleagues to leave their condolences, thoughts and memories. You can visit the page at https://tributefunds.macmillan.org.uk/in-memory/Kim-Barrington-Hines?SearchTerm=kim+barrington+hines and all donations will go to MacMillan, Kim’s chosen charity.

The impact of Kim’s passing is being deeply felt in our Jessop team, so we value your ongoing understanding and kindness whilst we strive to provide the best service we can.

Rest in peace Kim

Rest in peace

Flu Vaccines 2021/22

You can now book your flu immunisation by contacting the practice.

The start of our flu immunisation programme this year has been delayed until early October due to the well publicised issues with vaccine deliveries to many GP Practices. We have also been awaiting the National guidance, received last week (14th September 2021) on whether we can co-administer the flu vaccines with a 3rd dose of the Covid-19 Vaccine. It is permitted to have both vaccines at the same time, though national advice is not to delay getting either vaccine. For various practical and logistical reasons most people will not be able to have them together, so please book in for whichever of the vaccines when invited to do so.

Covid-19 Vaccine Booster Doses

ARCH (Alfreton, Ripley, Crich, & Heanor) Primary Care Network will be starting Phase 3 of the Covid-19 immunisation programme shortly. Individuals become eligible for a booster dose once 6 months have passed since their second dose was given. Our Local Vaccination Service has given more than 65000 doses of a Covid-19 vaccine so far, and we are pleased to be able to offer some booster doses from our site at Church Farm in Ripley. PLEASE AWAIT YOUR INVITATION to book an appointment rather than call any of our practices directly. Booster doses will also be accessible for eligible people via the National Booking System by calling 119

Blood test requests

You may have heard about blood test shortages in the NHS. This doesn’t mean all blood tests are stopped.

If you are due a test, or think you may need one, please continue to request one. Your GP will decide if you need one now, or if it can be delayed until the shortage is resolved.
