Non-urgent advice: Coronavirus Vaccine
Please could we kindly ask you to avoid calling the practice for information about the vaccine as we cannot provide any further details or book anyone in for an appointment to receive a vaccine.
We are experiencing high call volumes currently, calling for the vaccine may stop someone who needs urgent medical help getting through to us.
You will have seen on the news that the NHS is preparing to roll out a vaccination programme for COVID-19. At this stage we do not have an approved vaccine. Before any vaccines are approved for use they go through a strict process of clinical trials and safety checks. Our practice is working with other NHS providers, and our healthcare partners, so that we are ready to offer the vaccine as soon as it becomes available and is approved for use.
Vaccines will be offered from a number of different locations in Leeds to make sure everyone who needs a vaccine is able to get one. We will share these details withour patients as soon as we know. For information about who will be offered a vaccine, please see the guidance from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations.
Non-urgent advice: Patient Attendance of Appointments
It has come to our attention that there has been an increased amount of appointments that have not been attended by patients.
As our surgery is working under immense pressure at the moment time is very precious to us. Please could we ask that patients let us know if they are unable to make their appointments.
This can be done by calling the surgery on 0113 274 4777, emailing us at [email protected] or cancelling through your patient access online services account
Non-urgent advice: Patient update: Flu Vaccinations
We now have Flu Clinics for patients aged 50-64yrs who are not in an at risk group. If you would not normally be eligible for a flu vaccine and are aged between 50 and 64 you will become eligible from the 1st December.
In order to accommodate social distancing measures, we are holding our Flu Clinics at St Chad’s Church Hall in Headingley.
We have clinics on Friday 4th and Friday 11th December.
These will run from 8.30am – 5.30pm.
If you have access to our online services, please log into your account where you will be able to book your appointment through the system. To manage demand for our reception team please only contact us to book if you do not have access to our online services.
To avoid any potential confusion, please note these clinics are for the FLU vaccination and NOT a COVID vaccine. Information on the Covid Vaccine will be supplied in due course. Please also note that where you have any symptoms associated with COVID 19 you should cancel your FLU appointment and self-isolate as per government guidelines.
