Covid-19 Vaccination  - 09.04.2021


2nd Dose Update


All patients who had their first AstraZeneca vaccine on the 28th and 30th January 21, the staff are contacting patients to book in their 2nd vaccine for next week. We are all working extremely hard and we understand the phone lines may be busy.  Please contact the Surgery to confirm the date and time of your appointment if we have not been able to contact you. Those patients who have still not received their first vaccine and are aged 50-64 yrs, please click on the link below to book at the Chester Racecourse, if you are unable to attend the Chester Racecourse then contact the Surgery.

Despite recent media coverage outlining a national supply issue, everyone in Cheshire West who has already had their first dose COVID vaccine will be offered their second dose within 12 weeks. Available vaccine supply is being prioritised for this purpose.


Most vaccination services in Cheshire West started vaccinating patients in early January and it has been determined nationally that second doses should be offered as close to week eleven as possible, following first dose.


Clinics are carefully planned around confirmed vaccination delivery dates in order to minimise disruption to patients. When confirmation of the delivery date for second dose vaccines has been received your GP practice will contact you to arrange your second dose appointment.

Once we have a delivery we will contact the patients, please avoid coming to the surgery to book your appointment as we have Covid-19 measures in place. The notification of delivery can be at very short notice and the Surgery Staff are working extremely hard to ensure all clinics are fully booked.


Depending on which vaccine we receive will determine which site it will be delivered from and we will informed you at the time of booking.


We would like to thank you for your continued support during this time.


We know that many people are eager to be vaccinated as soon as possible. We also understand that some patients will be concerned that they are not in the first groups for vaccination but may feel their circumstances or condition means they should be.

The decision about which order people are vaccinated in is set nationally by the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). Your local GP practice or individual GP is not allowed to vary from that priority order and is unable to make exceptions in individual cases. Your medical consultant or local counsellors are also unable to agree a variation from the national rules.

GP practices are working together to ensure they can vaccinate patients as quickly as possible and they appreciate your support in this regard and your understanding as they progress through the groups for vaccinations as quickly as possible.

Appointments

circled_dayThe surgery operates a booking system for patients. A certain number of appointments are reserved each day and these may be booked up to two weeks in advance.

There are a number of appointments that can be booked On Line. You will need to visit the Surgery to request a On line access code and then regoister for online services by using the icon on the home page of this website

We now have some telephone consultations available. These are for review appointments (NOT medication reviews) or for an appointment where it will not be necessary for the Doctor to examine you. There are only a few of these appointments each day - they do not  replace face to face appointments with the Doctor but may assist people that work or find it difficult to get to the Surgery.

If you require to see a doctor on the day, contact a receptionist to book an appointment. If all the appointments for the day have been taken and you need to see a doctor, you will be asked for information to complete a triage form. The duty doctor will review the triage forms and you will be contacted during the day to be given either an appointment or advice. If you are ill and need to see a doctor you will be seen that day; however, it may be late, after normal surgery hours.

Practice Nurses

The nurses’ appointment system is different as you may book up to one month in advance. All patients between the age of sixteen and seventy five who have not attended the surgery within three years, are welcome to attend a general consultation and will be offered appropriate health checks.

Patients aged seventy-five and over who have not attended within twelve months are welcome to attend for a general consultation and will be offered appropriate health checks. This general consultation may take place in the patient’s home where, because of the patient’s medical condition, it is deemed appropriate to do so.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
