Good news for the New Year
Posted on 3 Jan 2021
We wish all our patients a happy new year, and we can start 2021 with good news.
We, along with other local surgeries are starting Covid Vaccination clinics between Thursday 7th and Saturday 9th Jan (each surgery running different morning and afternoon surgeries) from the top floor of the Health Centre. Further dates will be announced in the days to come depending on the supply of vaccine stocks from NHS England.
A group called IPC (Innovations in Primary Care) are going to be handling the booking process and they will be contacting patients directly to invite them in.
At the moment, this will be prioritised based on age starting with 80+ group only. This will be a rolling programme with the second dose administered before 12 weeks. We will also simultaneously have a campaign running over the next weeks to cover housebound and care homes.
Please wait to be contacted, and don't contact the surgery as we won't have access to the appointments. We do not have control of the priority list, so please do not call us and insist on getting a jab.
It is likely that we will have less clinics and appointments available in the surgery as we need to release staff to work in the vaccination centre. This is essential work tackling this public health crisis, so we thank you for your understanding and patience.
In the interim, please continue to be safe. Cases in the local area have definitely risen. Maintain your social distancing, and ensure you follow the rules if you test positive, or have confirmed contact with someone who has tested positive.
