Please be aware of COVID-19 Vaccine scam

FRAUD SCAM - COVID 19 Vacination.pdf

 

To prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVD-19), we are  moving all requests for appointments to a telephone triage system. Please ring us between 08:20 -10:00 am if you need medical advice for acute conditions. After the doctors call, patients who need to be seen in person will be given a face to face appointment at the surgery.

Alongside telephone, video, face to face appointment we now have online consultations.

This health advice can be accessed either via https://www.online-consult.co.uk/org/the-ridgeway-surgery   

Or for patients who have an online access, can access it via the "health advice" tab.

 COVID-19 Vaccinations Update

We are very excited about the COVID-19 vaccine being approved for use and starting to be given to patients. Because of the nature of the vaccine and the logistics of getting it delivered, initially not all GP surgeries will deliver it from their buildings. We are pleased to say that Winyates Health Centre has been approved to deliver vaccinations from within its building and this service will be made available for all of our patients registered with one of the 12 GP practices across the 2 Primary Care Networks (Kingfisher PCN and Nightingales PCN) across Redditch.

 

When we receive the first vaccine, we will ring people in the Government’s priority order, to book the appointments; PLEASE DON’T RING US. Separate arrangements will be made for our housebound patients and residents in the care homes, to receive their vaccination as we did with their flu vaccinations.  

 

We will run this immunisation campaign in the same safe Covid secure way as we did our flu clinics.

 

We will be moving office and clinical staff away from other work to run the clinics, as well as calling up retired colleagues to help. Moving staff away from our surgeries may impact the routine care available and the capacity for appointments at the surgeries so please be understanding. 

We know you will have a lot of questions, and as soon as we receive relevant literature, we will share it with you.

 

This is all we know at the moment, but it’s a great step forward and we look forward to getting the clinics underway very soon.
