The NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases and has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff whilst also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
Check online at http://www.gov.uk and at http://www.nhs.uk for the latest advice on COVID-19 symptoms, testing and self isolation.
If you need to book a test please phone 119 or go online to http://www.nhs.uk we do not provide COVID testing at the surgery.
We are pleased to say the first phase of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme is going really well and we have had a superb uptake of vaccines. Unfortunately we do not have any information on when we will next have a delivery of Covid vaccines for 1st doses for patients over 50 or in a clinical at risk group. As soon as we have this information we will plan our next covid vaccination clinic and patients will be invited according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The vaccinations have been taking place at Valley Medical Centre which is our designated covid vaccination site within the Upper Don Primary Care network and recently at Oughtibridge Surgery when we have had stocks of the Astra Zeneca vaccine. We are arranging clinics as soon as we are notified that we are getting a supply of the COVID vaccines, sometimes we do not get a lot of notice and we will arrange clinics and invite patients for their vaccination at short notice.
If you are over 50years of age or in a clinical at risk group and are still waiting to have your first vaccine then please call 119 to book in to a mass vaccination site as we do not know when we are getting more supply of vaccines for 1st doses.
We are currently contacting patients in turn for their 2nd dose so please bear with us if you have not yet heard from us with a date, we will be working down our list of patients when we are notified of a delivery date from the supplier.
We are contacting patients mainly via a phone call or text so please ensure we have your up to date contact details. We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact us to request an appointment or to ask when they will be invited as we are working down the list of patients according to the government's priority groups.
