COVID Vaccination Update – 9 February 2021

Following the Health Minister’s announcement yesterday, all people aged over 70 who have not yet received a letter or a phone call to book the first dose of the COVID vaccine can now book an appointment by phoning 119 between 07:00 to 23:00 or booking online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. Please do not phone the surgery. We are experiencing very high levels of calls, which are causing problems for patients trying to contact us with medical queries.

If you already have an appointment booked at Crosfield Hall at one of our clinics this week, then please attend this appointment. Our clinics are still running. We are also still working to vaccinate our housebound patients and hope to have this complete by the end of this week.

This week we will begin texting invitations to book an appointment to eligible patients where we have a mobile phone number held on your medical record. Please be assured that a text received from accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk has been sent by the surgery and is not a scam.
