INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Covid Vaccinations 

We are very excited to be running covid vaccination clinics at present and have successfully vaccinated nearly 4000 of our most vulnerable patients to date. We are working within the SEOxHA primary care network with Temple Cowley Health Centre, The Leys Health Centre, Donnington Health Centre and Hollow Way Medical Centre to provide vaccinations at The Leys Health Centre. This week some patients may start receiving invitations also from the Kassam Stadium where a mass vaccination centre is being run. 

In preparation for receiving the vaccination or if you would like to read more about the vaccines available please click on the following link: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

Over 75s 

We are pleased to have offered and vaccinated most of our patients over 75. If you are over 75 and haven't yet been contacted please do email us on contact.tcmg@nhs.net or phone us so that we can arrange an appointment with you in our next available clinic. 

Over 70s and patients who are extremely clinically vulnerable (shielding)

We are currently inviting patients who are over 70 or clinically extremely vulnerable into the vaccination clinic. Please wait for an invite text or phone call to book an appointment. 

Patients under 70 and those not in extremely clinically vulnerable group

We are working under national guidance in delivering the vaccine. The JCVI have developed guidance for how we deliver the vaccine to those most vulnerable to coronavirus (you can read here for further information regarding who is in the different priority groups). If you are not over 70 or Extremely Clinically Vulnerable please wait to be contacted.

2nd dose of vaccination

As per government guidelines - by the JCVI and MHRA - we expect to be offering 2nd doses of vaccine approximately 12 weeks after the date of your first vaccination. You will be contacted closer to the time. The second dose of vaccine should be given at the site that you got your first. Those patients who received their first dose of vaccine at The Leys Health Centre should have their second dose at The Leys Health Centre. Those of you who are invited into the Kassam Stadium for the vaccine should have first and second dose there. If you receive an invitation to the Kassam Stadium but have already had your first dose of vaccine at the Leys Health Centre, please do not take the invite up - and allow the space to be given to someone who has not yet had the vaccine. 

 

We are commited to keeping our most vulnerable patients and staff as safe as possible, therefore we have suspended all routine face-to-face GP appointment bookings. If you have not spoken to a doctor please do not attend the surgery.

If you are asked to attend the surgery you MUST wear a mask or other face covering. Please note we are unable to provide these for you.

In line with the latest advice, if you have a high temperature, new, continuous cough or a loss of taste or smell you should self-isolate for a period of 10 days. There is no need to contact either the surgery or NHS111.
