The Covid Vaccine programme has started in our area.
At the moment patients over 70 yrs and patients who are on the extremely vulnerable list (and have received a shielding letter from the government since the 3rd lockdown) are being contacted to attend for a vaccine. This will be through a phone call or a text message directing you to a web page where an appointment can be book. (if you are unable to book on this web page please be patient the appointments may have been filled and you will have to try again another time)
Please do not call the practice to make an appointment if you have not been contacted.
Thank you for your patience and keep safe
When to get tested:
For a home testing kit – ring 119 for advice
Appointment at a test site – ring 119
or go to www.bury.gov.uk/coronavirus-testing
The practice will be sending text message invites to these patients. If your phone number has changed or you do not think we have the correct number for you please inform the reception. If you are on a chronic disease register (COPD, Diabetic, Heart failure) please ring the practice for an appointment.
Due to COVID-19 the practice will be operating an appointment only system to ensure the safety of staff and patients. Do not ring the practice unless you have received an invite or are on a disease register.
