******* UPDATE *******

I am pleased to let you know that we have managed to secure enough vaccine to offer appointments to our patients who are over the age of 70 years and those regarded as clinically at risk.

We will be holding clinics over the next few days so you should be receiving a telephone call to book an appointment. This means our teams will be making over 500 telephone calls to make appointments so thank you for your continued patience at this very busy time.

***Coronavirus Vaccine update***

As I am sure you will appreciate, we are working hard to ensure that all of our patients in the priority groups are offered an appointment to have the Coronavirus Vaccine.

To date we have been working through the eligible cohorts in turn and have held several clinics, two of which have been whole days.

The Government have announced that all patients in groups 1 to 4 will be vaccinated or offered an appointment by the 15th February. We know that we still need to vaccinate some patients in those groups, particularly the over 70 age group and those deemed clinically at risk. We are allocated the vaccine on a week by week basis so please rest assured that we will be calling you the moment that we are told that vaccine is being delivered to us.

We appreciate that everyone is very keen to get the vaccine and we are ready and prepared to call you to invite you to make an appointment just as soon as we know that we have supplies.

Our telephone lines are extremely busy with enquiries about this which may prevent patients with a medical emergency reaching us. Please wait to be called.

With very best wishes

Pam Saltmer

Practice Manager


** Covid Vaccination Programme **

The Covid Vaccination programme has commenced and is a schedule of 2 vaccinations. Local practices are working together to provide this important vaccine to all eligible patients across Scarborough and Ryedale.

We are working under strict guidelines from NHS England regarding eligibility and the order of invitations. If you are eligible you will be contacted by the practice and should expect to book 2 appointments for your 2 doses. Please note the location of your appointment as this may not be your usual surgery.

Please be assured that you will be contacted as the vaccine becomes available to our patients.

These are challenging times and we thank you for remaining patient and respectful with our staff whilst they try to assist you.

Thank you

 


New Patient Registration

If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so it would help if you could provide proof by way of a recent utility bill.

You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and will be provided with a practice registration pack.

All new patients over the age of 16 are offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information. 

If you are on any repeat medication it would be helpful if you could bring your current repeat medication list from your previous practice.
