COVID-19 INFORMATION

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:

Due to the continuing situation with the coronavirus outbreak, the decision to temporarily stop the online booking of appointments and operate a 'telephone triage' service is still in place. This includes the nurses appointments and the CASH Clinic. Patients should only attend the practice after having spoken to a clinician.

Patients will not be able to come upstairs to drop in prescription requests or any other correspondence that you would normally hand in at the reception desk. Please send these to us via email on u.healthcentre@nhs.net where possible. However, if you cannot send correspondence electronically, you can also drop them in the secure box in the main entrance.

Where possible, we will be emailing all correspondence apart from Repeat Prescriptions, whereby we will ask if you can nominate a pharmacy for us to send the prescription directly to. This can be done two ways; by either going into a pharmacy and signing a form or by contacting the Health Centre on 01484 430386 and asking to change your nomination.

Thank you for your assistance in this very important matter.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Covid-19 vaccinations

The NHS has now moved to the second phase of the vaccine rollout – people under 50.  Vaccinations will be offered people according to their age.

Getting an appointment

Currently, anyone aged 44 and over can book a vaccination online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. If you are not able to book online you can call 119 free of charge, between 7am and 11pm seven days a week. As the age limit reduces, this will be updated on the booking homepage. 

If you would prefer to have your vaccination at the centre run by local GP practices you do not need to do anything – we will contact you when we have appointments available. We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but please do not contact your GP practice for an appointment. People will not be able to make an appointment unless they have been invited and you might stop someone who needs medical help getting through to us.

Getting your second vaccination

People need two doses of the vaccine to make sure they get maximum protection. If you had your first dose at a GP centre, you will be contacted by your practice when it is time for your second dose. This will usually be 11-12 weeks after your first vaccination. Again, please don’t contact the practice for an appointment, unless it is over 11 weeks since you had your first vaccination.

For more information about the vaccine, please visit www.nhs.uk or  www.kirkleesccg.nhs.uk/your-health/health-campaigns/covid-19-vaccination
