COVID VACCINE INFORMATION
Key messages – COVID-19 vaccinations (Greater Huddersfield)
The NHS is now offering vaccinations to people in Kirklees who are most at risk from Covid-19.
Our practice is busy contacting eligible patients as supplies are made available. It is likely take several weeks before we contact everyone, so please be patient.
Vaccinations are currently being offered to people in care homes and those aged 80 and over in line with national priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
When it is your turn, you will receive an invitation via the phone or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system. When you are invited for a vaccine, please act straight away.
We know people are eager to get protected but do not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine or to ask for an appointment. You will not be able to get a vaccination until you receive an invitation.
We are currently receiving a large number of enquiries about the COVID-19 vaccination. Before you contact the practice, please check the NHS website or look at these frequently asked questions where you may find the answer to your question.
COVID-19 infection rates remain high and local health services are incredibly busy. The best thing we can all do to protect ourselves our families and our community is to remember - Hands, Face, Space.
Vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS. Anyone who offers a vaccination privately or for a fee is likely to be committing a crime and should be reported to the police online or by calling 112.
The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.
ADVICE FOR PARENTS DURING CORONAVIRUS
Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself.
Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done.
Here is some advice to help
Please submit your eConsult before 1pm if the the request is urgent. Any eConsults received after 1pm will be put on to the clinicians list for the following day. Thank you
Zero Tolerance – Abusive or Aggressive Behaviour
Our staff come to work to care for others, and it is important for all members of the public and our staff to be treated with courtesy and respect.
In line with the rest of the NHS and to ensure this is fully observed, we have a Dignity at Work and Zero Tolerance policy. This means that aggressive or violent behaviour towards our staff or any member of the public within our Practice premises will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
Anyone giving verbal abuse to members of staff, either in person or over the telephone, will be sent a letter from the Practice Manager advising that this behaviour will not be tolerated. Any future violation of this policy will result in the removal from the Practice patient list. There will be no appeal process.
We feel sure that you will understand that proper behaviour is absolutely necessary for our staff and patients and that non-observance will not be accepted.
Here to listen, not to tell
We provide a confidential service to all our patients, including under 16s
This means that YOU CAN TELL OTHERS about YOUR visit BUT WE WON’T
If you have worries about confidentiality please feel free to ask a member of staff
