COVID-19 VACCINATION

Due to the huge task of vaccinating so many people nationwide, the vaccine is going to be delivered in various ways, by mass vaccination hubs, smaller hubs and some GP Surgeries. We are working with 27 other practices and the Suffolk GP Federation to deliver the vaccination programme via a mass vaccination hub.  

When you are invited you will receive a text from NHS-Noreply or a letter with a unique booking code and web link. 

All Patients will be invited for their vaccine when they are eligible.  Please be patient, you will be contacted when you are eligible.

  

Information is available on the government website

(https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-why-you-are-being-asked-to-wait/why-you-have-to-wait-for-your-covid-19-vaccine)

We understand your anxiety but would like to assure you that as soon as is possible, you will be contacted and invited for your vaccination.

Suffolk and North East Essex System have launched a Covid-19 Vaccine website which gives a range of information about the vaccination roll out, links to local networks and organisations and a detailed set of FAQs.  There is also information about the vaccination centres and sites across Suffolk and North East Essex with local case studies and sites, including maps highlighting their location.  SNEE NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Service (sneevaccine.org.uk)

Dear Patient,

patient surveyWe would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this, we are setting up a patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received.  We will meet face to face, probably 3 or 4 times per year.

For any patients who would like to be involved but cannot attend meetings, we will offer a virtual group.  This means we will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
