News regarding Covid vaccines

Although there is not an approved vaccine for Covid-19 yet, a lot of work is taking place to make sure the NHS is ready to offer these to people as soon as a vaccine passes all the strict safety checks and is approved. 

 When will a vaccine be available?

At the moment, we do not have any information about when a vaccine will be ready. The NHS will not offer Covid-19 vaccinations until it is safe to do so and a vaccine is proved to be both safe and effective.

 Where can I get a vaccine?

Vaccines will be offered from a number of different locations to make sure everyone who needs a vaccine is able to get one. These locations are still being decided and we will share these details with patients as soon as we know.

 Who will get a vaccine?

The vaccine will be offered to those most at risk from COVID19 first, starting with people living in care homes and those over 80 years old. This is based on the guidance from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations which is available here. Currently, it advises that it should then be offered to people with high or medium risk clinical conditions and those aged between 50 and 80. This will be done in a phased approach and full details of when and where will be shared once a vaccine is confirmed.

Further information

We will share further information with you as it becomes available. In the meantime, please could we kindly ask you not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine as it may stop someone who needs urgent medical help getting through to us.

Flu Vaccinations

We are still administering flu vaccinations and if you are a patient who is in a high risk group, you should contact the surgery to make an appointment. 

Nasal flu to give to children aged 2-3 are also available with the practice nurse on a bookable basis.

Once you have an appointment please follow these instructions on the day - 

Do not attend if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been told to isolate. Contact us the following week and we will rebook you when you are able to leave isolation.

Attend on your own unless you need help with movement. 

Walk to the practice if you are able to.

Do not arrive early or late for your appointment time: we have allocated a strict number of patients per period to ensure that people are queueing for the minimum of time and social distancing is maintained.

Please wear a face covering. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, please be prepared to provide evidence of this.

Please come prepared with an umbrella in case of rain as the queue will be outside for a short period of time.

Access

The surgery building was opened in 1984 and is the result of extensive conversion works to the old Sowerby Bridge Police Station. Facilities are good, but we are always trying to improve them.

We provide ramps and toilet facilities for the disabled.  We also have a wheelchair available for anyone who has problems getting their own wheelchair into the surgery. All our patient services are on the ground floor.
