A message about Covid Vaccinations

A message to our patients from the Partners

You may have seen news in the local media that Cheshire GP practices will soon be involved in the roll out of the COVID vaccination programme, the largest in the history of the NHS.

Dr Andrew Maurice, Chair of the Middlewood Partnership has stated that “It is marvellous news that the COVID vaccine is being rolled out and we are delighted that our Middlewood team will be leading the delivery of the vaccination programme for our communities over the coming months”

We have a lot to do to make the necessary arrangements and are busy sorting out all the processes and procedures. We are planning towards being able to offer vaccinations after Christmas and subject to vaccination supply will be seeking to ensure that every eligible registered patient receives their vaccination as soon as possible in line with national guidance.

In order to do this we need your help!

We very much understand how anxious people are and want to reassure everyone that we are working hard to put the programme in place. However in the meantime can we ask you to bear with us and wait until we contact you for an appointment. If we have not contacted you then this means that it is not your turn for the vaccine just yet. The order in which different eligible groups of patients are called to be vaccinated is not in our control and we are working very hard to make sure everyone is invited in the correct order. We are currently unable to offer any specific dates for clinics but we will update our website with more information as soon as it is available. We are sorry we can’t give you anything more definite but please keep an eye on the website for the most up to date information.

Please during this unprecedented time, wherever possible and appropriate, remember to use self-care and your local pharmacy team to deal with any minor illness.

The importance of this vaccination programme cannot be emphasised enough. The contribution of all our staff in being able to make this happen is unprecedented and we feel confident that by working with you, our patients, together we can ensure a safe and effective vaccination programme, thank you everyone.
