PATIENT NOTICE – COVID-19 PHASE 3 BOOSTER VACCINATION PROGRAMME

We are pleased to announce that the Phase 3 Covid-19 Booster Vaccination Programme will be commencing soon.   The vaccination will be offered to all patients in due course. Please do not ring the surgery to book your appointment, you will be invited when it is your turn.  If you are over 70 years or clinically vulnerable, please read the bullet points below:

  • If you are over 70 or clinically vulnerable, you may be getting a call from Newcastle GP Services (NGPS) in the coming months to book your Covid vaccine booster appointment.
  • NGPS work with all 31 GP practices in Newcastle and have been in charge of delivering 200,000 Covid vaccines since last December. They are helping all practices to book patients in for their appointments so if you get a call from an unknown or withheld number, from someone from NGPS, please be assured that this is a genuine service.
  • The first groups to receive the call will be the most vulnerable and elderly, so please bear with us if you don’t receive a call from NGPS soon.
