You will have seen that the highest priority for the NHS is to offer booster COVID jabs to everyone over 18. This is a big challenge as it will require everyone to work even harder and longer than they do now. Winter has always seen a lot more illness and higher demand for services. COVID has made it even harder, and the new Booster campaign makes it impossible for us to maintain normal services. Our phone lines are overwhelmed by the volume of calls we receive, and we kindly ask you to only ring the surgery when it’s essential. That way we can respond to our patients with the highest need. If you have a vaccine query ring the national booking service, not the surgery.
To keep our patients safe and prevent our staff from catching COVID or having to self-isolate, we will be doing telephone (or digital) consultations first and then inviting those patients that we need to see face to face into the surgery. In view of the extremely infection nature of this new strain we will be rigorously applying control of infection measures within the practice and ask patients to comply with these requirements.
We will do our very best to meet our patients needs but there may be times in the extreme circumstances we are now in that we have to prioritise those in greatest need. Many minor illnesses are self-limiting and do not need a clinical intervention. Patients can often seek help for such conditions from the local pharmacy. Routine care where a patient’s condition is stable may need to be delayed for a while.
We will always do our best for our patients but ask for your understanding in these most challenging of circumstances.
Thank you for your patience, Roslea Surgery
COVID-19 BOOSTER NOTICE
The NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities. All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.
Please DO NOT contact the practice over any vaccination queries or bookings
as this will stop patients with medical conditions being able to get through.
You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months. We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly. New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December. We will be working with all our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days. All these appointments will be added to the National Booking System. We encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, has yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so. In terms of any planned appointments, there are no changes at the current time, and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.
FROM 19-JULY-2021, ALL PATIENTS SHOULD CONTINUE TO WEAR FACE MASKS & SOCIAL DISTANCE IN HEALTHCARE SETTINGS
Please follow this guidance to help us protect our vulnerable patients.
