Due to the Tier 4 local restrictions, which include the fast rise in infections caused by the spread of a new variant of COVID-19 and increased admissions to hospital, NHS Hammersmith & Fulham CCG and Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH) have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend the Parsons Green Bookable Clinic (PGBC) from 1st January 2021.
Staff currently working at the PGBC are required to be redeployed to more critical COVID services, such as community beds and the vaccination hubs. We appreciate the hard work of staff and their willingness to flexibly support local patient needs.
This is a temporary service change and is subject to continuous review.
The CCG will communicate to all partners with more information when it is safe to restart the service.
Patients will continue to access healthcare via their GP, NHS 111 or 999 if it’s an emergency.
This is something we did not want to do but the increase in infections and the impact on our hospitals in Hammersmith and Fulham and NW London has left us no choice.
We thank you for your continuing support for the NHS in this national emergency.
