12/12/2021 – RE: National COVID Vaccines Update

We are digesting the Prime Minister’s announcement this evening and what this will mean in terms of patient access to appointments over the next two weeks.

We ask you to please not phone the surgery tomorrow to enquire about COVID vaccinations. At this time, we do not have any information. We had not been given any warning prior to the PM’s briefing so we need time to plan what clinics we are able to offer locally; how they will be staffed; and whether we will be forced to cancel appointments at the surgery to release our clinical team to vaccinate.

If you can travel to a vaccination site, then more capacity will become available over the coming days at larger sites, so please keep checking online or by calling 119. We thank you for your patience while we work out how we can support local vaccination delivery without compromising access to care. We will keep you updated as soon as we know more.
