As you will probably know, we are currently working hard to give the Covid-19 vaccination to all eligible patients. Please do not contact us about getting vaccinated – everyone will be invited in due course, and we will not leave anybody out.
We have been made aware that some fraudsters may have been using the pandemic to target people, sending false messages which pretend to offer appointments. In these false messages, people may be asked to provide their bank details to verify their identity.
Please note - no part of the NHS will ever ask for your bank details. If you receive a message which appears to be from the NHS but which asks for financial information, it will be a hoax.
More information and advice can be found here. https://cfa.nhs.uk/resources/downloads/fraud-awareness/covid-19/COVID-19_SMS_and_Text_Message_Scams.pdf
We will be in touch with all eligible patients about getting the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as we can. In the meantime, please remember do keep doing the basics to help protect yourself and those around you – wash your hands, cover your face, give others space.
If you are a patient facing frontline health and social care worker and have not yet had the COVID-19 vaccination please contact the surgery via our email address
FGCCG.firstname.lastname@example.org with the below information.
- Date of Birth
- Occupation with a description
- Employer and their contact details
- Contact number
We currently do not have any COVID-19 vaccine clinic running but once we have appointments available we will contact you to book an appointment
We are all excited to hear about the progress of the rolling out of the Covid vaccine and look forward to this improving the quality of life for all of us.
We know that you, like us, are struggling with the continued confines imposed upon us all due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Everyone is trying to make the best of the situation and, as a practice, we are committed to caring for you in the best possible way whilst keeping both you and our team safe.
To keep you as informed as possible, we will update these messages frequently as we become aware of more information from NHS England:
- The vaccines are being rolled out in a very strict order
- Please do not contact the surgery nor the hospital to seek a vaccine
- We will contact you when the NHS has informed us that you are eligible
- We are still open if you have any medical concerns and will offer advice via the telephone whenever we can to prevent you leaving home unnecessarily
- With the current rapid increase in Covid-19 cases it is even more important to
- wash your hands
- wear a face mask as advised
- keep 2 metres apart
Thank you for your patience
