COVID VACCINATION UPDATE – 1st March 2021
East Cleveland Group, Primary Care Network
(Brotton Surgery, Hillside Practice, Springwood Surgery, The Garth Surgery, Woodside Surgery)
Hillside Practice is currently working hard to deliver Covid-19 vaccinations in conjunction with our 4 partner practices within East Cleveland. We are currently offering patients in Cohort 6 (All those aged 16-64 with an underlying health condition which puts them at higher risk of serious disease or mortality) appointments first, in. Once we have completed this cohort we will then invite our Cohort 5 patients (All those aged 65-69) who have not taken up the offer of being vaccinated at a Multi Vaccination Site via the national booking system www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination
Our clinics whether offered jointly by all practices and held at The Garth Surgery or offered by individual practices are determined according to the vaccine supply, taking in to account vaccine type and numbers that are allocated to us by the national team.
More information on the JCVI/PHE Covid vaccine priority list can be found at
COVID-19 vaccination first phase priority groups - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
WEEKEND COVID-19 VACCINATION APPOINTMENTS
Should you be unable to attend your allocated appointment on a weekend for any reason please call 07532 102347 to cancel. This will allow your appointment to be given to someone else and avoid vaccine wastage.
To cancel weekday appointments please ring Hillside Practice on 01287 650430 as normal.
The NHS has introduced new safety measures.
Hillside Practice takes health and safety to both our patients and staff very seriously. To help to prevent the spread of Covid- 19, in line with NHS guidance, from the 15/6/2020 we are asking all patients who need to attend the practice to wear some form of face covering, this covering will need to cover both your mouth and nose. By doing this it helps reduce the release of infection particles into the air when someone speaks, coughs, or sneezes.
We will send messages to as many patients as possible but please help us by sharing this post.
The practice continues to request that patients make contact with us either by telephone or e-consult. All repeat medication requests should continue to be submitted on-line or put in the letter box. The prescription line can still be used by eligible patients.
Thank you for your cooperation
