COVID-19 BOOSTER VACCINATION CLINICS
We are running Covid-19 booster clinics over 2 weekends in October & November.
The first weekend clinics will be held over the weekend of Saturday 30th & Sunday 31st October.
We are currently in the process of contacting eligible patients to invite them in for their booster vaccination.
THERE IS NO NEED TO CONTACT US ABOUT THIS.
For those eligible patients who have registered a mobile number with us, you will receive a text message with a link which is unique to you.
When you receive your text message, PLEASE click the link, you will then be taken to an online booking page (SystmOnline) where you can see what dates and times we have and you may book an appointment which is convenient to you. The link is only available for 7 days.
We would ask that if you receive a text message, containing a link, you book your appointment this way as it is quicker and helps to relieve the pressure on our already pressured telephone lines.
For patients without a mobile number registered, we will send a letter to you in the coming days advising you of your eligibility and asking that you contact reception to book your appointment.
We will communicate with patients directly about the November weekend clinics once the details are finalised.
As the guidance for the delivery of the booster vaccine states that 6 months must have elapsed from the date of the patients 2nd vaccine, this vaccination programme will be staggered.
ONLY those eligible patients who had their 2nd vaccine on or before 30th April will be contacted at this time.

Bowel Cancer Screening
To detect cases of bowel cancer sooner, the NHS offers two types of bowel cancer screening to adults registered with a GP in England:
- All men and women aged 60-74 are invited to carry out a faecal occult blood (FOB) test. Every two years, they're sent a home test kit, which is used to collect a stool sample. If you're 75 or over, you can ask for this test by calling the freephone helpline on 0800 707 60 60.
