Flu Vaccinations Autumn/Winter 2020

We are still busy booking appointments for flu vaccinations.

Due to Covid-19 we are running our flu clinics slightly differently this year, with enhanced safety measures and social distancing, to minimise the risk to both your health and ours.

Our second vaccine delivery for the over 65 age group arrived on 16th October, but we are not due to receive the vaccine for the Under 65 at risk group until the end of October at the earliest. We will continue dedicated vaccination clinics, primarily on Saturdays, throughout the autumn season.

All clinics will continue to be by appointment only, managed by a bookings team via a dedicated telephone line, separate to our main surgery number.  Please try to avoid contacting our reception team to book or enquire about a flu vaccination; bear in mind they are trying to deal with patients who require medical assistance and also they may not have access to the flu clinic appointment schedules.

We are experiencing a higher than usual demand for vaccinations this year and so we have tried to ensure that patients in the highest risk groups received an invite and were/will be vaccinated first.  We have sent invitations via email and/or text message to those eligible patients who have given us permission to do so.  For those who haven't, a letter has been sent via Royal Mail.

Those patients aged 50 to 64 included in the new extended flu vaccination programme will be contacted soon. We are not permitted to vaccinate anyone in this group until after 1st December and are still awaiting an allocation of vaccines from NHS England.  Please do not contact us to make enquiries if you are in this group, we will contact you as soon as stock is received.  Many thanks

M.B. B.S., M.R.C.G.P., D.R.C.O.G., D.C.H., F.R.C.G.P. (London University 1987)

I have been a fulltime GP in Fordingbridge for the past seventeen years but decided it was time for a change. I trained at Westminster Medical School in London and did my GP training in Guildford.

I come from a medical family:  my sister is a midwife, my mother was a nurse and my father is a retired physician. I'm an advocate of patient centred care. I used to be a school doctor and take particular interest in children as well as care of the elderly. Out side the surgery I have five children ranging from 20yrs old to eleven. I play tennis in Downton on a Thursday. I love to read, mainly science economics and history books and also do some creative writing and painting, both badly! 

Dr Claire Chatt (f)

B.M., D.R.C.O.G., M.R.C.G.P. (Southampton 2006)

I joined Whiteparish Surgery as a Registrar in 2011 to complete my GP training, having spent several years as a Junior Doctor at Salisbury District Hospital. After finishing my training I spent some time as a GP locum at various Salisbury practices before returning to Whiteparish as a salaried GP.

I have always thoroughly enjoyed my time at Whiteparish, working within a fantastic team, a beautiful location and a lovely patient community. I was delighted to take on a partnership here in October 2015 and look forward to many happy and fulfilling years ahead.

At home I have a very supportive and understanding husband who works in IT and two young children who keep me on my toes. When I’m not at work we enjoy walking in the New Forest and if I get time, baking with the children.

Dr Simon Hawliczek (m)

BM BSc(Hons) DCH PGCert MRCGP (Southampton)

I joined medicine from a career in the Pharmaceutical Industry in London and following extensive work and travel in the developing world.

I joined Whiteparish Surgery as a partner from Fordingbridge Surgery where I was a full time GP. My broad GP and Medical experience and training was focussed in the local region following completion of my medical education at Southampton Medical School.

 I enjoy the variety and breadth of General Practice and within it I have particular interest in Locomotor Injury & Palliative Care.  I also have the responsibility of Whiteparish Surgery’s Child Safeguarding Lead.  I remain passionate and enthused by the potential invaluable provision of Primary Care both nationally and worldwide.

I have broad interests outside medicine from the active to the pure sedentary but these are largely superseded by my young family.

It's been natural throughout my life for my surname to be shortened to 'Havy' which is much less intimidating and easier to spell and pronounce!

I am delighted and privileged to be serving Whiteparish and its wider community, as a GP.
