Oxleas Immunisation Team Greenwich

Coronavirus

We are having to alter some of our services in response to the demands that Coronavirus is creating. This means that we may have less staff and will be unable to continue to provide services in the way we usually do. Therefore, we may need to do the following:

  • We may carry out consultations via phone or video call to review vaccination consent and related health concerns.

We will speak with you about any new arrangements we need to put in place. We will inform any other people involved in your care of any changes made.  

If you need to contact us, please call 0208 320 5721 during work hours

We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this time.

School sessions

School vaccination sessions are arranged in advance by the immunisation team and your child’s school.

A date is arranged with the school for the team to come in and deliver the vaccination programme.

Your child’s school are given the consent forms by the immunisation team in advance and the school then distribute the consent forms and letters to parents/guardians.

It is essential that parents/guardians read all the information given and complete the consent form in full and return back to the school within 3 days.

If your child is under the hospital for treatment we may request you obtain a letter from their consultant for them to advise us that they may safely receive vaccination, this is required in advance of the school session and should be attached to the consent form.

If you are a foster carer or not the legal guardian a consent form will need to be signed by the social worker or the parent with parental responsibility for the child or young person.

Your child’s school may inform you of the vaccination session date, however, this may be subject to change.

On the day of vaccination the immunisation team will treat your child with care and compassion and ensure that they are well looked after.

Following vaccination your child will be given a letter to inform you what vaccine/s they have received and information on common side effects and what to do is explained on the back of this letter.

Nasal Flu - reception to year 5

If your child did not receive the nasal flu vaccination at your school session and you would now like them to receive this please contact us on 0208 320 5721/42 we can then make arrangements for you to come along to one of our clinics.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.

My daughter (y2) had surgery last week, we missed the consent form for nasal flu (woodhill primary school) but the school is not able to send me that form. Could I found the consent form online and download it?

Dear Alberto

Many thanks for contacting us. Someone from the Immunisations Team will contact you today and complete the consent process with you over the telephone, in preparation for the vaccinations at Woodhill Primary School next Thursday

Many thanks

I had the Pfizer Covid vaccine at the Wensley Close centre Eltham on Jan 29th but have not had an appointment for the second dose. Can you advise please?
Thank you

Dear Gareth

The vaccination service at Wensley Close is not provided by Oxleas. People attending Wensley Close are by appointment only, invited by the GP Federation on behalf of their GP practice. You can contact the national booking line 119, or wait until contacted by your GP or GP Federation for the second dose vaccination there.

Best wishes

Director of Nursing

Hi, apologies for contacting you direct but I was unable to find any information on your website. I'll be due my second Pfizer/Biontech vaccination at the end of April. I had my first one in early February at Erith Health Centre which is where my GP registration is under Riverside Surgery. Are you still running vaccination clinics at the Centre? Are you able to advise me when I'll be called for my second dose? Will it be at Erith Health Centre?
Many thanks
Martin

Dear Martin

The Covid vaccination programme in Bexley is being organised by our GP colleagues and therefore we are unable to answer your query. We would suggest you contact your GP surgery directly who should be able to help you.

Kind regards
