Covid Vaccination for Health and Social Care Staff

“GP practices as part of Primary Care Networks are not the provider of the covid vaccine to health and social care staff at this time. Health and social care staff will have access to larger sites such as vaccination centres or hospital hubs.

Frontline health and care workers will be invited for a vaccine over the coming weeks by their local hospital vaccination hub.  Staff will be contacted via their organisation to check eligibility and to coordinate liaising with the NHS

Please be patient and you will be contacted to book your vaccine at a vaccination centre when it is your turn.”

Below is a link of the letter that has gone to the employers:

Covid-19 vaccination first phase priority groups

As you may have heard in the news, the Covid-19 vaccination programme has now commenced.    We will be delivering the Covid vaccination as a Primary Care Network (PCN).  Our PCN is called Leek and Biddulph PCN and comprises of Moorland Medical Centre, Leek Health Centre, Park Medical Centre, Biddulph Doctors and Biddulph Valley.

 

We will be rolling the programme out from January onwards, starting with patients aged 80 and over.  

Please see the list of priority groups below.

 

You will be contacted by the practice either by phone, text or letter when it is your turn to be vaccinated, at which point we will book you into a clinic.  We therefore ask that you do not contact the surgery until that time.

NHS 111 help us help you

If you have an urgent but non life-threatening medical need, make sure you use NHS 111 first rather than going straight to A&E. If you do need urgent care, then NHS 111 can now book you in to be seen quickly and safely in A&E. NHS 111 is also able to direct patients to or book an appointment at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.

Contacting NHS 111 first will also help the NHS to keep you safe by maintaining social distancing and ensure that you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely and safe way. However, you should still dial 999 if you have a life-threatening illness or injury.

Just think 111 first. When you think you need A&E, contact NHS 111 by phone or online.

 #HelpUsHelpYou

Social distancing measures at A&E will help ensure you’re seen safely So, if you need urgent care, contact 111 first and they will be able to book you into A&E or direct you to a local service that is right for you.

Online Services

What is Patient Online?

Patient Online gives patients the option to make appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view their GPs’ medical record online, using their computer, tablet or smartphone. It complements the existing ways patients access appointments, prescriptions and their records.

Online services will be offered in addition to the traditional telephone and face-to-face means of interacting with a GP practice. Patients will be able to choose the route they prefer.

Patients appreciate the ease and convenience and record access helps them to be better informed about their health and better able to self-manage long term conditions.

The GMS and PMS contracts required practices to promote and offer online access to the coded data in their health record and in 2016/17 there are non-contractual changes that call for practice to provide patients with online access to clinical correspondence such as discharge summaries, outpatient appointment letters, and referral letters.

Patient information leaflet ‘It’s your choice’

Please print off and complete the patient application form. Bring the form into the surgery with 2 patient identifiable documents, e.g. driving licence, passport, utility bill so that the surgery can issue you with your unique PIN number.
