Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme

Across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight the NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.

You can book your booster from three months after your second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from two months.

We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly.

New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. We will be working with all of our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.

All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.

If you are yet to have your first or second dose of the vaccination then please do come forward and have these.

In terms of any planned appointments with <insert name of the GP practice>, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.

We urge you keep our phone lines free for patients to call with non-vaccination healthcare needs. The NHS will share details on other ways to access booster appointments across our communities as soon as possible.

Thank you.

MAKING AN APPOINTMENT

All GP Practices have had to change the way of working since the pandemic and follow government and NHS guidelines as we try to return to 'normal' with a new way of working.

Currently to safeguard patients and staff, reduce the spread of the virus and reduce footfall in the Practice, all patients requests for GP appointments will initially be made as a telephone appointment.

If a face to face consultation is felt necessary by the GP you will be advised of a time to attend.

The Reception Team will ask you the reason for your request and a few basic questions and offer you the next available telephone appointment with a GP or Nurse Practitioner

You are also encouraged to use the eConsult service found on our website

www.almaroad@nhs.uk
