Stanground Surgery Update
Between December and June we delivered more than 38,000 COVID vaccinations from the Stanground Surgery site for patients from across the South Peterborough area. In order to make Stanground a designated vaccination centre it was necessary to make a significant number of internal changes to enable the transfer of the core services previously provided there to our main site New Queen Surgery.
We recognise that Covid restrictions are now being relaxed and we are now working very hard to get Stanground into a position that we can resume core service delivery from there. The works taking place include the replacement of the IT infrastructure, a redecoration of many parts of the site and new flooring being fitted. Unfortunately, we cannot yet confirm a date when this work will be completed.
The other key factor in the reopening of Stanground as a surgery is the recent confirmation from the Government of the COVID Booster programme starting in September. At this stage, we do not know what this booster programme will look like nor how and where it will be delivered for out patients. Stanground may be an option we have to consider.
We appreciate this may not be news you want to hear but it is important that we keep you updated with the true position. As the situation unfolds, we will keep you updated on our progress and we thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
