WELCOME TO DAYBROOK MEDICAL PRACTICE 

 

COVID-19 VACCINATION

The Covid-19 vaccination programme has begun. When it is your turn to be vaccinated, the NHS will contact you. Please do not contact the NHS.

 

In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a few different health and care organisations including hospitals, GP practices, care homes and others are working together on the Covid-19 vaccination programme. This means when it is your turn to be vaccinated, this may not be at your GP practice. You will be told where to go for your appointment and how to book.

 

In line with expert guidance, the first priority for vaccination is care homes residents and staff, people over the age of 80 and frontline health and care workers.

 

We understand a lot of people want to be vaccinated and would like to reassure you this will happen. Please be patient and wait to be contacted.

 

For further information on why you are being asked to wait for your Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information on the GOV.UK website

How has COVID-19 impacted your health and wellbeing? What has been helpful and what has not been helpful for your mental health?

Researchers from a collaboration group are asking people to complete a short questionnaire to help better understand how the coronavirus is affecting us all and its impact on our day to day lifestyle. We hope to find out what is helpful for people during this time and also what may be causing some people to be affected more than others in terms of their wellbeing. This is the second phase of recruitment. If you took part in the first phase of the study, you are still able to take part in this second phase, conversely if you did not take part in first phase; you are still able to take part in this second phase

Can you spare 15 minutes to help? Click on the link to the questionnaire for more information:

FLU INFORMATION UPDATE 19TH AUGUST 2020 FROM NHS ENGLAND

This is a generic communication that has been issued for the general population

 

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

 

Many thanks

NHS England
