Covid Vaccination Update

 

We write to provide some further information around the vaccination process for everyone and hopefully to answer some of the questions that have been posted on various social media sites recently.

With regard to the issue of vaccinations where two or more people live in the same household but are called in separately.  This is out of our control, NHS England manage the process and only allow us to vaccinate certain groups at certain times therefore regrettably there are occasions when, as much as we would like to do the whole household at one time, we simply are not allowed to do so.  Rest assured your GP’s are well aware of this issue and whenever possible we will do as many patients as we possibly can at the same time, within the existing guidelines.

This also applies to the housebound, we are only authorised at the present time to vaccinate patients within this group, as we move through the groups we will have more flexibility but this will be over time.  Also please note that Housebound for these purposes are classed as patients who qualify for transport to Hospital by ambulance.

We are happy to advise that we are now starting to receive some small allocations of the vaccine for delivery at Cleobury Mortimer Medical Centre .  At the present time these are limited in number and we will only call into Cleobury those patients who will have most difficulty attending Bridgnorth.  This is simply because we have far greater stocks at Bridgnorth, but due to storage requirements they cannot be transported to local practices.

Patients over 70 will also have received, or will very soon receive a letter, from NHS England inviting them for a vaccination at a mass vaccination site; the closest to us are Telford and Ludlow.  These are not sent by us and obviously any patient is welcome to book a vaccination using these letters; however you cannot ask for either Bridgnorth or Cleobury if you choose to take up this route.   If you prefer to be vaccinated locally you can wait for contact from our own staff and we have capacity to ensure all 70+ patients will be booked in by 15th February.   We do however recommend whenever possible you attend the first appointment offered.

We have noted that a number of people have suggested patients phone their GP to request an individual is accommodated as an exception.  Please do not do this as we are unable to act outside of the official guidance.  We will contact all patients and advise you of an appointment opportunity, this will be via a mix of text messages and telephone calls.  Our staff are checking our patient lists daily and we do everything possible to get all patients vaccinated at the very earliest opportunity.

As a final note we are pleased to be able to announce that up to the 31st January the 9 practices working across the South East of Shropshire have provided 8,485 vaccinations.

Thank you
