A MESSAGE FOR OUR PATIENTS

As you will know, the COVID vaccination programme is underway and some of our patients have already been able to receive the jab at Fordingbridge Hospital. Our staff have been proud to be part of a huge local effort to protect so many people, so quickly.
 
In time, a vaccine will be available for everyone, but at the moment the clear priority - nationally and for us - is to focus on the most vulnerable first, those aged 80 or over.
 
Please be reassured that we will be in touch with you when it is your turn. We know many of you are keen to be vaccinated as soon as possible, but we must ask everyone to be patient - we are not holding reserve stocks of the vaccine and so cannot simply add in extra appointments. Calling or messaging the Practice will not get you an appointment more quickly, but it will take our Staff away from their other work.
 
The Government has said that the vaccination process will be a marathon, not a sprint. It will take time to protect everybody, but we will be in touch with you all as soon as we possibly can.
 
While you wait for you invitation please remember to do the basics to keep yourselves safe:
  • Wash your hands.
  • Cover your face.
  • Make space.
