We received positive news this week for Heathfield residents which you may already be aware of. The GP surgery is now in a position to offer vaccinations to its patients and is contacting the over 75s to invite them to appointments in Heathfield. The message that the surgery will be sharing is as follows:
We are pleased to confirm that from this week we will be starting to make appointments for our patients to receive the COVID-19 vaccination at Heathfield Surgery.
We will be contacting patients aged 75 and over – those in the next priority group - and making appointments as deliveries of the vaccine are confirmed.
We would politely ask our patients not to contact the surgery to ask for an appointment – we will contact you as soon as an appointment is available. We will contact you via SMS or via a telephone call.
We would like to thank our colleagues in the Greater Wealden Primary Care Network who have been providing the vaccine to our patients aged 80 and over in the last week. Thank you for your support for our patients.
Going forward, subject to supply of the vaccine, we hope to be able to be providing regular clinics for our patients as we work to meet the target to have the first priority groups vaccinated by the middle of February.
You can find out more about the vaccination programme, including a Frequently Asked Questions at the Sussex Health and Care Partnership website: https://www.sussexhealthandcare.uk/keepsussexsafe/sussex-covid-19-vaccination-programme/
Please do share with your residents. The top four priority groups on the JCVI list are expected to be vaccinated by 15 February. It is also expected that all housebound patients aged over 70 will also be visited for their vaccinations appointments within this time frame. GPs are responsible for identifying their housebound patients and ensuring that they receive the vaccine. If anyone in these categories has not been contacted by mid-February they should contact their surgery. Please do not make contact before this time.
Letters from NHS England are now being sent to all patients in the top cohorts to give them an opportunity to attend one of the centralised mass vaccination centres. If patients would rather have an appointment with their GP practice they should wait for their GP surgery to contact them.
