COVID-19 - VACCINATIONS

Vaccination is the most important thing you can do to protect your community against serious illnesses.  When enough people get vaccinated, it’s harder for a disease to spread to those who can’t have vaccines.

 

We know many people are interested in the COVID-19 vaccination and want to assure you that we are working through a priority list set by the Department of Health.  Please do not contact your GP about getting the vaccine. We will contact patients in order of priority. 

 

All Patients  in the following groups can contact the vaccination centre to have their Covid 19 vaccination by booking online @ https://vaccinations.covid-19.hscni.net/booking or phone 03002007813

  • Anyone who is 16 years of age by 31/3/2021 who has received a recent shielding letter (Clinically Extremely Vulnerable)
  • Anyone who is between 65 and 69 years of age
  • Anyone who is a Carer and is aged 18 and over by 31/3/2021

NEW TEXTING SERVICE NOW AVAILABLE

If you do not wish to receive texts from us please let reception staff know so we can record it in your notes.

If you have updated your mobile number or wish to avail of this service please let reception know.

New Practice Boundary:

To provide the best care for our existing patients we have decided to  reduce our practice radius to 5.5 miles of the surgery.

We will only accept applications from new patients who live within this radius

Any existing patients who CHANGE address to a new address outside the radius will also be asked to re-register with a GP surgery closer to them.

 

 

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
