AUTUMN COVID-19 & FLU CLINICS
Horsham Central PCN (Park, Holbrook, Orchard and Riverside Surgeries) will be offering both the Covid Booster and Flu vaccination appointments to all eligible registered patients. We are working with our GP federation, Alliance for Better Care to deliver the programme and will be running regular clinics at Holbrook Surgery, 9 Bartholomew Way, Horsham, RH12 5PL
Clinics dates are as follows:
18.9.22 10.00am – 17.00pm Covid only
24.9.22 10.00am - 16.00pm Flu only
25.9.22 9.00am - 17.30pm Covid/Flu
1.10.22 10.00am – 16.00pm Flu only
2.10.22 9.00am - 17.30pm Covid/Flu
8.10.22 10.00am – 16.00pm Flu Only
9.10.22 9.00am - 17.30pm Covid/Flu
When will I get my appointment? Patients aged 65 and above and patients under 65 who are in a clinical at-risk group will be invited via SMS to book, with appointments available from the 18th September Patients aged 50-64 years old will be able to book once these priority groups have been vaccinated.
How will I get my appointment?
Appointments can be booked via the NHS website or by calling 119 from the 7th of September or you can check the Alliance for Better Care Walk-In Clinic page. Where possible, we aim to offer the Flu jab for eligible patients at the same time as their Covid Booster - depending on vaccine availability. Please note - patients who have their Covid boosters in early September might be asked to return for their Flu jab at a separate appointment.
Patients who only want a flu vaccination
We will be running “flu only clinics” on certain dates and patients will be invited via SMS from the 19th September 2022. For those patients who do not have a mobile phone they will receive a call to book their appointment.
At present we will not be offering walk-in clinics. Please visit the https://allianceforbettercare.org/vaccination-programme-patients/ for updates on alternative walk-in clinics.
While this next phase focuses on the delivery of booster doses to eligible patients, we continue to welcome patients aged 5+ for first and second doses only of the Covid vaccine. Simply book via the National Booking System or attend one of the appropriate Walk-In Clinics. From September 2022, individuals aged 16 to 49 years who are not eligible for a booster in the autumn campaign will cease to be eligible for a catch-up booster from earlier campaigns. The exception to this could be for younger frontline health care workers, where there may be an advantage to minimising absenteeism over the winter period when most respiratory infections are circulating. As protection from mild disease following a booster is likely to be short lived, this group may be offered boosting later in the autumn programme although such considerations should be subject to operational flexibility.
BANK HOLIDAY (AUGUST)
Lloyds Pharmacy in Sainsburys, Horsham will be open for prescriptions on the Bank Holiday at the end of August.
New Patient Registrations
Holbrook Surgery regrets that it is not at present able to register NHS patients.
The decision has been taken in order to ensure the practice can continue to safely provide NHS services to its currently registered patients.
The practice is not able to maintain a waiting list of patients who would like to register in the future.
Once Holbrook Surgery is able to commence accepting NHS registrations, this information will be available at reception and on the practice website.
If you are not currently registered with an NHS General Practitioner locally, and need to see a doctor or a nurse, you can attend the Walk in Centre at Crawley Hospital, West Green, Crawley, RH11 7DH or contact GP Allocations phone number (Tel: 07425 616194) and email address firstname.lastname@example.org also https://www.westsussexccg.nhs.uk/your-care/finding-a-local-nhs-service/help-for-patients-if-a-gp-practice-has-suspended-new-registrations/ for further advice.
Holbrook Surgery is proud to announce its new, improved and updated website to our patients.
