COVID Vaccination Update

Dear patients,

We are following the Government guidelines on vaccinating priority group and we will be in contact with you when it is time to book your appointment, either by text, by phone or by letter. The vaccine is free to all.

We have had an increase number of calls from patients advising us that they have been contacted by a variety of external companies inviting them for their vaccine early – it is very clear they are being scammed. Please be aware that there are a lot of scams going around, we ask that you be extremely vigilant if you do receive something you are unsure about. We would hate for someone to get caught out by them. Remember when it is your turn to receive the vaccine a member of our staff will contact you directly.

We know that you, like us, are struggling with the confines imposed upon us all sue to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Everyone is trying to make the best of the situation and, as a practice, we are committed to caring for you in the best possible way whilst keeping both you and our team safe.

To keep you as informed as possible, we will update these messages frequently as we become aware of more information from NHS England:

  • Please do not telephone us to ask when or if you are going to get a Covid Vaccine.
  • The vaccine will be given in order of priority to those at highest risk first.
  • Please act on your initiation when it comes, and make sure you attend your appointments.
  • It is essential, if you are given a vaccine, that you return for the second part of the vaccination on the date you are advised to.

Meanwhile, we all need to keep to the advice of hand washing, face masks and social distancing but we all look forward to the time when we will return to life as normal.
