Noticeboard

3rd Doses of the Covid vaccine will soon be available (please note these are for immunosuppressed patients and different to the booster vacinations), however please wait until you are contacted by either your consultant or your GP Practice. We ask that you don't contact the surgery, we will update as soon as we have further information

Shortage of Blood test bottles

There is a shortage in supply of some blood test bottles which may affect taking routine samples:

Please read the Cheshire Commissioning Group Statement in the link below

https://www.cheshireccg.nhs.uk/news/news-stories/national-blood-bottle-shortage/

 

 

 Patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser when attending the Surgery and our patient-facing staff will continue to wear PPE.

 

We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when the patients come to us they may be sick and vulnerable, and some cannot receive the Covid vaccine due to medical reasons, so we feel it would be wrong to not continue with these small precautions that can help to protect the patients and staff.

 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

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.

We are closed on all statutory Bank holidays
