|Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on Sunday 12th December, the Practice will be re-starting the COVID booster clinics. |
However, we are still awaiting sign off by the relevant channels and therefore no dates are available to book at present.
We therefore encourage patients to attend one of the sites available on the National Booking System: https://www.nhs.uk/…/coro…/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
As soon as we have further update on when we can restart the clinics we will advise accordingly.
We are also chasing for an update on our Housebound patients who were supposed to be visited by a 3rd party team to deliver the vaccine. We will do what we can to get the vaccines to these patients as soon as possible.
In order to create capacity, the PM has informed that routine matters need to be put on hold. Therefore we have temporarily changed all GP appointments to “on the day” appointments rather than being able to pre-book. This will apply from week commencing 27th December as all other pre-bookable appointments before this have already been booked.
At this time we don’t see the need to cancel appointments but this could change at any time. Therefore we appreciate your co-operation and understanding if anything changes.
It is encouraging to know that over 56% of our patients who are eligible for a booster, have already had it. With the co-operation of our patients and the hard work of the Practice staff we are confident that patients will be boosted as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
