CHANGE TO 2020 FLU CLINICS – PRE-BOOKED APPOINTMENTS ONLY
The practice has started its’s annual flu campaign. If you do not want to have the flu vaccination this year 2020/201 please email the practice on [email protected] and we can update your medical records.
Delivering the flu immunisation programme for this season will be more challenging than ever because of the pandemic. The format of the flu clinics will change to take into account social distancing and other measures to protect patients and staff from Covid-19. We are committed to ensuring that our patients get timely treatment and care, and that we can give that in the safest possible conditions to keep both our patients and our staff safe
As in previous years the free NHS influenza vaccinations is only for eligible patients who have received either a text or letter.
We will be contacting you soon if you are eligible for a flu vaccination – we will be concentrating on the patients who would normally be eligible – ie aged 65 and over, 18 to 65 with a long term condition, carers, patients and their families who are immunocompromised etc. We have not yet been notified by the NHS about the plans for the recently announced extended group of patients who will be eligible (50 and over). Please watch this space and we will keep updating as we know more.
Please wear a face mask to your appointment and do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to allow us to adhere to social distancing rules.
Clinicians will NOT be allowed to touch clothing. Therefore we ask that all patients wear suitable clothing so that the upper arm can be easily exposed. Remove coats and outer clothing on entering the building and more importantly if you feel poorly please re-arrange your appointment.
All practice employees will be wearing Personal Protective Equipment.
A one way system will be in operation to prevent patients crossing in the front doorway of the building. If you are unable to stand to queue or need assistance from a carer, please telephone the practice on 01924 669080 option 2 for appointments and we will book you an alternative appointment.
PLEASE REMEMBER NO APPOINTMENT NO FLU JAB
Do you need non-medical support during the current COVID-19 Outbreak?
Live Well Wakefield is a social prescribing service that links adult 18+, registered with a Wakefield GP – like ours, with non-medical support in the local area.
During the current COVID-19 outbreak they’re still accepting social prescribing referrals and are also encouraging referrals from our vulnerable patients who are self-isolating and have no support to access shopping, medication delivery and/or befriending support. They can also support you with information on up to date safety advice and help you to access additional support services as appropriate during this time.
Information on their standard service and what ‘Social Prescribing’ is, can be found on their website: https://www.livewellwakefield.nhs.uk/ (click on the topic boxes)
At present Live Well Wakefield is unable to offer face to face appointments but all assessments will be completed over phone/email or with a family member if appropriate to ensure they can continue to support all.
To refer yourself – complete their online form https://www.livewellwakefield.nhs.uk/referrals/new , call them on 01924 255363 and follow instructions on the answer machine message, or message them on Facebook @LiveWellWakefield
