Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination status for travelling abroad

Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your vaccine record.

Please visit this nhs.uk webstie for further advise

Practice Delivery of Covid Vaccines

From week commencing 22nd March all covid vaccines will now be delivered at the Thanet (SAGA) Hub on the Haine Road

The surgery team will be working alongside other practices at this central Hub to vaccinate the remaining groups and to deliver the second doses for all patients previously vaccinated at our surgery or at our designated site at Minster surgery.

The Thanet hub has lots of parking and will be easy for patients to book and attend and also more efficient for us to deliver the vaccines.

Stage Coach will be offering a free hopper bus service from the Westwood cross bus stop behind Debenhams every 15 minutes to the vaccination hub

We will be using an electronic booking system so if you receive a text from your GP Practice with the Hub address, please respond and book your vaccination.

We ask you to follow the instructions in the text to book or cancel appointments and not to contact the surgery to confirm details.

For those patients without a mobile phone the surgery will contact you to book second doses but it would help us greatly if as many people as possible use the electronic booking system to speed the booking process.

Please note that from now on you must use the Thanet Hub as we will not be administering vaccinations at the surgery

 

IMPORTANT ADVICE TO KEEP YOU SAFE FROM CORONAVIRUS

Please see the information sent out to the at risk group by NHS England.

 

Practice Working

Whilst shops have been advised they can reopen practices will take a little longer to return to the way they worked before COVID-19. Due to our need to protect patients who are at risk or unwell and to reduce the burden of the virus on our staff we will for the foreseeable future ask patients not to attend the surgery unless they have an appointment.

Instead patients should continue to book appointments on the phone and to phone us with questions including those about medications. Patients attending the site for booked appointments will be encouraged to wear a face covering.

We are planning to reopen the doors later this summer in preparation for our flu and winter campaign when we expect that more patients will need face to face consultations but will continue to encourage patients to only attend for booked appointments.

When the doors are open we will be operating a one way system through the site and if patients need a further appointment we will encourage them to go home and book on the phone.

 

Extended hours

The Practice is now able to book additional appointments for our patients as part of the extended access scheme. These appointments will be outside the Practice usual opening times (8:00-6:30). 

The appointments will be available at the practice or other local practices during the week or at the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital on a Saturday or Sunday.

These appointments may not be with a doctor from this practice but with your consent the clinician will have access to your electronic medical record. 

For more information and to book please speak to a member of our Reception Team.
