Following yesterday’s announcement from the JCVI and Government about the covid booster programme we are planning how we will deliver this locally. Eight Hambleton GP practices will work together again to deliver this from a site in Northallerton in a similar way to the initial vaccine programme which we successfully ran earlier in the year. This will also include our flu programme, enabling co-administration of the vaccines as per the national advice. We will also be able to provide vaccines to those who still need their 1st / 2nd doses, and for those who are severely immunosuppressed that now require a 3rd dose to complete their initial course. We will follow the JCVI cohorts 1-9 for the booster programme, vaccinating our most vulnerable communities first. You will receive a text message, telephone call or letter when it is your turn. Please don’t contact us to ask further questions at this stage, we are awaiting further details and will provide more information shortly.
Your GP Practice supports a medicines management review service of medications prescribed to its patients. This service involves a review of prescribed medications to ensure patients receive the most appropriate, up to date and cost-effective treatments. This service is provided by qualified and registered healthcare professionals from within the GP practice, our NHS Primary Care Network, NHS North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group or by external partners approved by the GP practice. Patient identifiable information does not leave the practice system but is accessed to ensure only appropriate clinical recommendations or decisions are made for each patient. Each patient can opt out of (or back into) the practice using their data for anything other than specified purposes or where there is a lawful requirement to do so.
Facemasks are to be worn when entering the surgery - we do not provide these for patients as these are reserved for medical staff

Due to the latest advice regarding Coronavirus we won't bring any patient into the surgery for a face to face appointment until they had a telephone consultation. All appointments will be triaged by a GP. If you have any symptoms you should self isolate https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronarvirus-covid19
