COVID-19 vaccination update
Please do not contact the practice to ask for a COVID-19 vaccination. You will be contacted when you are eligible.
To make sure everyone gets the vaccine in a safe and controlled way, a prioritisation list has been established so the vaccine can be given to those who need it first.
We will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about location and date, so please don’t contact the practice to ask for a vaccine before then.
We are aware that some people are receiving suspicious calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination.
To protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals, remember the following points.
- The vaccine is only available on the NHS for free to people in priority groups, and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. Anyone offering a paid-for vaccine is committing a crime.
- The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine, and never ask for payment or for your bank details.
- At the moment we are also not making house calls to deliver or discuss the vaccine. Anyone offering this now is committing a crime.
If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police online or by calling 101.
There have also been reports of patients who have been invited by text message not trusting that the message is legitimate. If you receive a text message from your practice it should start with
This is a message for [name], date of birth [DOB], from [organisation name].
We are working hard to plan the delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations, while continuing to vaccinate people against flu and support our patients with routine and urgent health requests. On that basis, we are unable to answer additional questions about the COVID vaccine.
However, to help answer your likely questions, we have tried to summarise the key information you need to know about the upcoming COVID-19 vaccination campaign, along with sharing details of the way patient groups will be prioritised:
- The vaccine will be given in order of priority to those at highest risk first.
- We will be in contact with you with information about where and when you will need to receive the vaccine.
- Please act on your invite when it comes, and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them.
- Please continue to follow all social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
What are the priority groups?
- residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
- all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
- all those 75 years of age and over
- all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (excluding pregnant women and those under 16)
- all those 65 years of age and over
- all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
- all those 60 years of age and over
- all those 55 years of age and over
- all those 50 years of age and over
- rest of the population (priority to be determined)

If you need urgent medical attention that is NOT related to the corona virus please ring the surgery on 0161 231 4997, the receptionist will ask for more information and you will receive a triage telephone call/contact from a Doctor or Nurse. We would like to thank all our patients for their understanding and co-operation at this very difficult time.
NOTICE: Patients should contact NHS 111 for urgent medical care that can not wait until we reopen when we are closed by ringing 111. We now offer electronic prescription service.
