Welcome To The Practice

To all patients of Amersham Health Centre

You may have seen on the news that from Monday 17 May, doors at GP practices are 're-opening'. As you will know, our GP practice has been open throughout the pandemic, offering patients telephone and online appointments, with face to face consultations available for those who need them. This was in-line with national requirements to keep patients safe, whilst COVID infection rates were high and before the vaccination was widespread.

GP practices are now being encouraged to offer patients a choice of whether they would like a remote or face to face consultation. However, before we have more people coming into the surgery to see us in person, we need a bit more time to put in place measures to keep everyone safe. As we wait for further national guidance on doing that, we ask that patients continue to contact us by phone or online as you have been doing. We are facing unprecedented demands for our services and will need to continue to adjust how we use our clinicians' time to best support our patients - particularly those who need us the most.

We will keep you updated as soon as we are clear about how we can re-open our reception areas safely. Thank you for your support.

COVID-19 Vaccinations Updates

Vaccine Records - view and share proof of your COVID 19 status for travel and view your vaccination details, name and batch number. 

In order to view all these details, please download the NHS app (from the App Store).  Follow the instructions to register and then use the NHS App to access a range of NHS services and your GP account on your smartphone or tablet.

You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.

For more information go to www.nhs.uk/nhsapp

The NHS App shows COVID-19 vaccination status for people living in England. If people do not have the app and need proof of vaccination they can call 119 and request a copy of a letter.

Changes to under 30s receiving Astra Zeneca vaccines:

Guidance recently released advised that patients under 30 years old should not recieve the first Astra Zenena vaccine.  Those eligible individuals aged under 30 will be contacted by the NHS and offered an alternative vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna), either through GP-led LVSs, Hospital Hubs, or at vaccination centres.  We will keep you updated via our webiste when we are able to begin the process of booking these.

Those patients aged 30 years and under who have already had their first will still be able to book themselves into Astra Zeneca clinics for their second dose. The guidance for not having the vaccine only applies to those first doses.

The 4 June was the last vaccine clinic provided by the GP surgeries.  Any vaccines after this date will need to be booked via the NHS website or by calling 119.

We are now using Chain SMS to message patients!

Chain SMS on a mobile phone

Chain SMS allows us to send text messages to patients. It means we can be much more proactive with communication, messaging you quickly and securely, so you are not waiting around to hear from us!

Some examples of how we might use it…

Reminders of notifications (eg prescription ready)

Responding to simple queries (eg if you had a quick question about your medication)

Letting you know we tried to call

Send you advice at the end of a consultation


The practice name will always be at the bottom of the message. You won’t be able to reply to them. Please help us to help you by keeping your number up to date. If you don’t want us to contact you in this way please let us know.


GP appointments are now available in your area during the evenings and at the weekend. To book an appointment, contact your practice. Your NHS, here for you

Improved Access to GP Appointments

An improved service to access GP appointments has launched in Buckinghamshire and is available to all patients registered with a Bucks GP. This service involves local GP practices working together to offer patients better access to appointments. It means that you can now book an appointment in a practice local to you:

Up until 8pm from Monday to Friday (Amersham Health Centre - Wednesday)

Selected hours on a Saturday (Amersham Health Centre 1 in 8 Saturdays)

9am until 1pm on Sunday and Bank Holidays (at one of the three Improved Access Hubs located across the county)

This should mean that patients also have greater flexibility for routine, bookable appointments. It is, however, not a walk-in service. If you need urgent medical advice after 6.30pm or at a weekend, please phone NHS 111 in the first instance – they will be able to advise you and book an appointment if necessary.

These appointments can be booked through the practice you are registered with, and are being offered from three Improved Access Hubs, located at:

High Wycombe Hospital: (located at the Urgent Treatment Centre or UTC) Queen Alexander Road, High Wycombe, HP11 2TT

Stoke Mandeville Hospital: Corridor 5, Gate 2, Mandeville Road, Stoke Mandeville, HP21 8AL

Threeways Surgery: Pennylets Green, Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire, SL2 4AZ
