NHS Message

Dr Howcutt has issued the following statement:

"We have tried to contact all our patients aged 70 and over, and patients who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (the 'shielding' group), to offer a COVID-19 vaccination. There are some patients however who have invalid phone numbers or who haven't answered the phone several times.

Until now the NHS has asked people to wait until they are contacted to help ensure that those who are most vulnerable are protected first — and that remains the case for most people. However, to ensure absolutely everyone is offered the vaccine, people aged 70 and over can now contact the NHS so they can be vaccinated by the middle of this month.

So if you are aged 70 and over, or have a relative who is patient with us and aged 70 or over, who has not received a COVID-19 vaccination and would like one, please ring our reception to be booked into our clinic (we have spaces on Saturday for them); Tel: Tel: 01844 293300.

Alternatively, people in this group can book their vaccination through the National Booking Service.

Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.
