Spring Covid-19 booster vaccines.

Adults aged 75 and over, residents in care homes for older people and those age 12 and over with a severely weakened immune system are being urged to book a spring booster vaccine from today. The spring booster programme opens on 21 March and offers the most vulnerable members of the community a chance to top up their immunity because Covid-19 is more serious for older people and those with a weakened immune system. The NHS will contact those who are eligible to make a spring booster appointment. The NHS will prioritise those whose clinical need is greatest, as it has throughout, starting with those who have had a bigger gap since their last dose, then working through the cohort to invite others who have waited less time. Everyone who is eligible will be offered a top up over the Spring and early Summer. The public will be able to book an appointment at more than 50 sites across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire including pharmacies, Vaccination Centres and GP practices. PLEASE SEE OUR NEWS SECTION FOR FURTHER INFORMATION REGARDING THE SPRING BOOSTERS

Covid-19 Staffing Pressures

Our teams have been working hard to look after our patients and have delivered a fantastic vaccination campaign as well as primary medical services. We wanted to let our patients know that this week we have significant staff numbers off due to Covid-19 illness or isolation. Please bear with us as we work with reduced capacity for the next week or two. Thank you to our patients for all the support and understanding we have received. Together we shall get through.

If I die it will be your fault...

The Institute of General Practice Management has launched a campaign to raise awareness of some of the abuse our teams face every day. While most patients are polite and courteous, our teams are having to deal with abuse daily and the abuse must stop. Featured on 5Live and BBC Breakfast, hopefully this will make some people think twice. Please take time to watch this 4 minute video

Think Stroke

Remember F.A.S.T. (Face, Arms, Speech, Time): Face – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile? Arms – can they raise both arms and keep them there? Speech – is their speech slurred? Time to call 999 if you see any one of these signs of a stroke.
