21 July 2021 – Update re Covid19 vaccination appointments

Thank you for your patience, and we ask for it for a little bit longer. We are now contacting patients in Tier 3 to make their vaccination bookings. We have over 2000 patients in this Tier and we are steadily working through the list.

PLEASE bear with us and do not call us unless a message has been left for you.

Once we have been given the go ahead to invite Tier 4 patients for appointments we will let you know.

Over the next few weeks you may see a media campaign advertising an 0800 number. This is for a national booking centre that is intended mainly for patients of practices who are NOT providing vaccinations. (Some practices simply do not have the capacity to employ additional staff, as we have, or the room space to hold vaccination clinics).

Phoning this 0800 number will not get you an appointment with us as we are managing our own bookings.

Thank you again for your ongoing patience – we share your frustration regarding the delays in getting Tier 3 (and Tier 4) patients vaccinated….but we are nearly there, and we do have you covered.

Kind regards

the team at Newlands Medical Centre
