Guidance to keep you safe when attending your vaccination appointment
While coronavirus has put limitations on all our lives, it is important that you or your baby or child still have routine vaccinations. They protect against serious and potentially deadly illnesses and stop outbreaks in the community. We recommend that you [attend/book in for] your next scheduled appointment – see www.nhs.uk/vaccinations for details on when they are due.
Travelling to and from your appointment
When travelling to and from your appointment, please follow guidelines which include travelling by car, bike or on foot if possible, keeping a safe distance from others and washing your hands regularly. For more details, go to www.gov.uk and search ‘staying safe outside your home’.
When attending your appointment
When attending your appointment, we will be putting in place a range of measures to minimise any risk of COVID-19:
Following advice from NHS England in view of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) update, as from Monday 16 March 2020 all routine appointments with a doctor or nurse practitioner will first be assessed by telephone triage.
Following your telephone assessment, if the doctor feels you need to be seen face to face then arrangements will be made accordingly.
Our priority remains to offer medical care to our patients with the most urgent medical needs, which may mean we have to suspend some services or are unable to see patients for routine appointments.
In line with the NHS guidance we have temporarily suspended the option of booking appointments online, this allows for all appointments to be triaged by telephone.
These measures are being put in place as a precautionary measure to protect both public and staff.
We will update our website as soon as the situation changes.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
