Charlbury Medical Centre Patient Group News – Jan 2021

From: Sue Smith, Charlbury Medical Centre Patient Group.

First, I want to start by emphasising that the delivery of the Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine has not yet been confirmed for next week.  Please continue to check the medical centre website, and Charlbury.info for news.  The medical centre has a great track record for vaccinating people speedily and efficiently.  Please help them by responding to their telephone calls and collecting your vaccination letter if there isn’t time to post it out.

Secondly, there has been a short discussion on the Charlbury town website about oximeters.  These devices measure heart rate and oxygen levels present in the blood. A drop in oxygen levels can be a key indicator into the severity of a Covid-19 infection. A person may not be aware of this, but the use of the oximeter will monitor oxygen levels and alert people to when they should act urgently. The article on BBC News gives more information: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-55733527

Lastly, we attach our winter newsletter.
