Covid Vaccination Programme

We have very specific instructions from NHS England as to which patients we can vaccinate at present. This group currently includes:

  • Over 80
  • Care Home residents and Staff
  • NHS staff

Given the constantly changing information from NHSE, we are trying our best to contact the patients within those cohorts to arrange a vaccination. We have had limited supplies so far and we only get a couple of days notice to arrange clinics. So please be patient as the supply in the system builds up.

As a surgery we have 900+ patients who are over 80 and in the first cohort and we have had enough supply to vaccinate a small percentage. However, we have run more clinics this week and more supply is now scheduled for the 14th and 15th January, enabling us to vaccinate more patients over 80 and residents in Care Homes.

We are working in collaboration with the other practices in Haywards Heath to deliver this vaccination programme at scale and as efficiently as possible, whilst still being able to look after our patients in our GP surgeries.

Vaccinations clinics will be held at Clair Hall in Haywards Heath, but mobile teams will be sent to administer the vaccine within the twenty Care Homes we are covering.

How will you get an appointment?

As soon as we have a vaccine to offer you, we will be in touch to arrange an appointment.

We are using two methods to contact patients

  • If we have your mobile telephone number, you will be sent your appointment straight to your phone where you will need to book-in to confirm your attendance.
  • If you have not provided us with a mobile telephone number, then a member of staff will call you on your landline.

If you do not think we have your mobile telephone number and would prefer to be contacted in this way, please contact us with your details using any of the options below.

  1. Using the Text Reminder Form below

  2. Email us your Name, Mobile Telephone Number, Date of Birth and Email Address

  3. Call the Surgery and speak to a member of staff who will take your details.

    01444 484056

Please do not worry if you do not have a mobile telephone, you will still be contacted by our staff using your landline number.

 

The Doctors and Staff are working hard to get the vaccine rolled out as quickly as possible. The constraint so far has been the supply of vaccines to us, but we hope this will change over the next two weeks.

UPDATE: 14th January 2021

Based on current delivery promises we hope to have completed vaccinations for all of our patients over 80 years of age and care home residents by the end of next week.

Focus will then begin on the next priority cohort group. We will provide more information as we get sight of further vaccination deliveries.
