COVID-19 vaccinations for patients aged over 80

There is a lot of exciting news about COVID-19 vaccines being developed and now becoming available and approved for use.
 
We have successfully started vaccinating some of our patient population, beginning with patients aged over 80 years old. Over the coming weeks we will continue to contact our most vulnerable patients to offer them a COVID vaccination appointment. We will continue to contact those patients aged over 80 and will soon begin to offer appointments to those aged 75 and over. Please bear with us and please wait for us to contact you for an appointment.

We are working in collaboration with the practices in Calne to vaccinate as many of our over 80 year olds as possible. Please wait to be contacted by a member of our team at the practice regarding an appointment for vaccination. 
Appointments will be held at Northland Surgery, in Calne. This is due to the complexities of the current COVID vaccine meaning we need to offer this from a larger practice and in collaboration with other GP practices.
We will contact eligible patients, in order of age, as soon as we are able to offer a vaccination.

Remember to book your cervical screening appointment!

Around 2,600 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in England each year and around 690 women die from the disease.  It is estimated that if everyone attended screening regularly, 83% of cervical cancer cases could be prevented; however, attendance is at a 20-year low, with one in four women in the UK not attending their cervical screening. If you receive an invitation letter or if you have missed previous invites, please contact us to book your cervical screening appointment with one of our nurses.
