End of Covid Vaccination Hub

This page was last updated on 20th May 2022

 

Saturday 14th May marked our final day as a vaccination hub for the covid vaccinations. As a Wave 1 site starting back in December 2020 we have been one of the longest serving Local Vaccination Sites regionally and are proud to have been able to offer a local service for our practice population.  We thank our hard working and dedicated volunteer marshals and all staff for their enduring support of the programme.

 

If you require a first, second or booster vaccination please contact the national booking service either by ringing 119 or visiting https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/

 

 

 

Covid Vaccine Scams

Action Fraud has received reports from members of the public who have been sent text messages claiming to be from the NHS, offering the opportunity to sign up for the vaccine. The texts ask the recipient to click on a link which takes them to an online form, where they are prompted to input personal and financial details. In some cases the online form has looked very similar to the real NHS website.

There is advice about how you can protect yourself from Covid Vaccination Scams on the Action Fraud website here

Recent NHS Guidance on the use of Facemasks

When you visit the Surgery you are no longer routinely required to wear a face mask unless it is your preference. HOWEVER if you have respiratory symptoms, or any symptoms which you think could be covid, please wear a face mask as you would have previously.
 
Staff are also not required to routinely wear a face mask unless it is their preference. However, if they are working with untriaged patients attending with respiratory symptoms, or any symptoms that could be Covid, they will wear a mask and PPE as previously.
 
This guidance will be reviewed and adjusted if there is a rise in covid cases.
