COVID19 VACCINATIONS:- Patients are being contacted by mobile phone, text or letter to invite them in for their 1st dose & subsequent 2nd dose of Covid19 vaccine. You will be contacted by the site of your 1st dose to arrange your subsequent 2nd dose.. NHS England are responding to the national priority groups. Please take the first opportunity to get your Covid vaccination to ensure that you are protected wherever you are offered a vaccine. A vaccination programme of this size and scale (1st and 2nd doses) will still take some time to roll out in full but we want to assure you that there is enough vaccination for everyone and no one will be forgotten
Chelsfield Surgery have now finished completing their 2nd doses within the surgery for any patients that had their 1st dose here. Where ever patients had their 1st dose, normally they would return to that site for their 2nd. If patients have been abroad or missed their 2nd dose of covid19 vaccine, then they need to contact website or telephone number below to book:
Information on booking a covid19 vaccine can be found www.nhs.uk/book-a-coronavirus-vaccination or National Booking Service
or ring 0208 175 0438
Please continue to follow all government guidelines to help control the virus and keep you, your loved ones and your community safe. Thankyou for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.
Bromley Alliance will be wholly responsible for the delivery of the PFIZER vaccination. This is not something that your GP surgery can store, administer or book for their patients.
NHS services are using text messages as one of the ways to invite people in for their Covid vaccination. A genuine message will never ask for your bank details or request a payment. It may ask you to confirm your date of birth to make sure the message has reached the intended person. Text messages for our local GP-led site may include a weblink from ‘accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk’.
If you receive a text message which looks suspicious, you can forward this free of charge to the 7726 SMS reporting service.

Care Quality Commission
Following our ANNUAL CQC provider information collection (PIC) call on
29 November 2019 During an annual regulatory review
We reviewed the information available to us about Chelsfield Surgery on 20 December 2019. We did not find evidence of significant changes to the quality of service being provided since the last inspection. As a result, we decided not to inspect the surgery at this time. We will continue to monitor this information about this service throughout the year and may inspect the surgery when we see evidence of potential changes.
The average pay for GPs working in the practice of Chelsfield Surgery in the last financial year was £89,988 before Tax and National Insurance.
This is for 2 Full Time GPs and 3 Part Time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is published and the required disclosure is shown above. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with any other practice.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.”.
