Covid 19 and GP Practices Update Jan 2021
The NHS in London is very busy due to rising coronavirus infection rates, but we’ll help you get urgent care when you need it.
We are providing appointments, including evenings and weekends, for patients with urgent health needs. If you feel you need to see or speak to your GP, please complete an eConsult and a clinician will get back to you. If you need to be seen, they will invite you for an appointment that same day.
Please do not come to the practice unless you have been asked to do so.
You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice - including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms.
Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.
Thank you to Londoners for following the Tier 4 rules, which will help reduce infections, protect the NHS and keep each other safe.
Covid 19 Vaccination Message for Patients January 2021
COVID-19 Vaccine: The NHS will get in touch when it’s your turn to be vaccinated – please do not contact the Surgery before then
The vaccine may not be given at your GP Practice but at another local vaccination service
The first phase of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme has begun. However, initially the vaccination will be prioritised for those over 80, care home workers and residents, and frontline health and care staff. These vaccinations will be delivered through a limited number of Hospital and GP Hubs. See this leaflet explaining who was chosen for the first group and why.
If you are in a priority group, when it is the right time, you will receive an invitation to come forward for your vaccination. For most people this will be a letter (some might receive a call or a text), either from the practice or the national NHS. This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number.
This is going to be a long-term programme and it will likely take until at least Spring before all high-risk groups have been offered a COVID-19 vaccine.
Please help us and do not contact the practice or other NHS services to get an appointment for a COVID vaccination until you get this letter. Please also continue to follow the national guidance to control the virus and save lives.
