COVID Vaccinations - Updated 15/01/2021

The NHS in South East London is supporting the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme across the region.

The nationally set priority list for the vaccine is still being used to co-ordinate who is offered the vaccines and when. This is a long-term rolling programme which will take several months so please be patient.

Vaccinations for this practice are presently being administered at a separate vaccination centre.

When it is your turn you will receive an invitation either via letter, text, email or phone call. It is important that you follow the instructions given to you such as booking online, via text or phone call. Please ensure you respond promptly to an invitation to be sure of receiving your vaccination. If you miss out you will have to wait until you receive another invitation and we have no way of knowing how long that will be.

Please do not call us or any other NHS organisation about getting the vaccination unless you have received an invitation from them.

As more vaccines become available more sites will open in South East London and more of the priority groups will be contacted.

As I am sure you appreciate our practice is very busy at the moment, as are other NHS services – please do not contact us with general queries about when you will be able to get the vaccine.

Information on the vaccine is available on www.selondonccg.nhs.uk/what-we-do/covid-19/ including frequently asked questions and this information is updated on a regular basis. Please continue to follow all government guidelines to help control the virus and keep you, your loved ones and your community safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.

Face coverings when using NHS services

All patients and visitors to NHS services must wear a face covering at all times.  This includes hospitals, community clinics and GP services.  Evidence has confirmed that face coverings can help reduce the risk of transmission if you are suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms. 

The government has set out advice for people on how to make their own face coverings easily at home, using scarves or other textile items. These face coverings should cover the mouth and nose, whilst allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandanna that ties behind the head to give a snug fit.

Please wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting on a face covering and after taking it off. Please avoid touching your face covering whilst wearing it to avoid transmission of the virus. 

If you attend an appointment without a face covering, you will be provided with a face mask in an emergency. Intentionally blankentionally blank

Intentionally blankOnline Consult

Due to the fast changing situation with regard to the Coronavirus we are now operating a telephone triage system for GP appointments. When you speak with a GP, if they feel you need to be seen in person they will book you a face to face appointment.

If you have been confirmed as having Coronavirus or have been advised to isolate by a healthcare professional then you can apply for a isolation note rather than approach us for a fit note. See the Latest News page for further datails.
