Front line health and care workers are one of the priority one groups and as such will be receiving an invitation to access a vaccination through the mass vaccination centres by 14th February.

Vaccinations are also available through a bookable service at Hillingdon Hospital. This must be accessed via the employer, who will liaise with either London Borough of Hillingdon (care staff), the CCG (health staff) or H4All (third sector staff) to access slots. You will need your NHS number to hand at the point of booking.When you attend please take photo ID and proof of employment

Attending for Covid-19 Vaccine (Safety Checklist for patients)- Ruislip

This Link will provide you with updated information about the COVID – 19 vaccination program, with the following information:-

The delivery of the vaccine is being organised centrally.
The vaccine is not held at the practice.
Patients are called primarily via text message.
They then have to attend a community centre where the vaccine is administered.
We are working to vaccinate everyone in the first priority group (primarily those over 80) as quickly as possible.
This will take time but we are committed to getting to all people in this group by the end of February 2021.

We know it can be frustrating to see some people being offered the vaccine when you have not yet heard about your own; we are opening all our vaccination sites as quickly as possible and we will get to you soon.
We will also start to vaccinate those over 75 from early February, but again this will take time to get to everyone, so please bear with us.

The NHS will contact you when we are able to offer you an appointment, this will either be a text message, phone call or a letter.
If you miss the phone call please don’t worry, we will call again or send you a letter.

Please also be aware some people may receive two invites. If this happens, please pick the site you would prefer to go for your vaccination and follow the booking-in advice provided. You can ignore the second invite.

Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS in North West London and Public Health England are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to protect patients, our community and NHS staff while ensuring as many services as possible are available to the public.

If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.

Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine.

But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they’re at home for longer than 14 days. The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus

If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.

Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or you cannot go online.
