IMP PRIMARY CARE NETWORK COVID VACCINATION PROGRAMME

We are pleased to finally be able to announce delivery of the Covid Vaccine which will allow Abbey Medical Practice to deliver this service to our patients, we apologise we have been unable to give this notice earlier, vaccine delivery dates come at very short notice.   We will commence on Saturday 16th January and due to the complexity of the vaccine, we need to deliver this as a group of practices working together from a vaccination base at the Lincolnshire Showground.   

NHS England have given us strict guidelines for cohorts and priority groups so…..

PLEASE DON’T CALL US – WE WILL CALL TO INVITE YOU

Practices are working really hard to both deliver this and continue primary care services so please be patient.   The first cohort is Care Homes, staff and patients over 80. 

Then working through the age groups 75 to 80, 70 to 75 etc.

However, even within those cohorts priority order depends on health needs also.

Imp healthcare practices are excited to be involved in this national programme and working very hard to get this up and running and protect our patients as soon as possible.     

Vaccine delivery dates are determined by NHS England and we have to work to their schedule so please understand this and be patient.

 

 

 

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
