A Message to our Patients
On behalf of the Partners and Staff at Ardleigh Surgery I would like to wish all our patients a happy and healthy New Year.
With the release of the covid-19 vaccine I hope we will all be able to move to a more 'normal' life as soon as possible. The Covid-19 vaccination programme is being implemented nationally. In line with Public Health England requirements vaccines are being offered in stages to specific Patient groups. Patients are being contacted by a central booking team to be invited to receive a vaccination. This team is independent of Practices and at the moment Practice teams are not able to book any Covid-19 vaccination appointments for Patients.
Currently, across North East Essex it has been agreed that the programme shall be delivered from three dedicated vaccination sites. When contacted, Patients will be given further details of their nearest centre.
Presently, Practices are facing unprecedented volumes of calls and workload and we request Patients not to contact the Practice with queries specifically relating to Covid-19 vaccination appointments. The central booking team will contact Patients directly and in accordance with the national Patient bands.
Thank you for your continued support of our Practice Team who have shown amazing commitment and dedication during the Covid Pandemic.
