Dated 2 March 2021
For any patient that has had a covid vaccine at the Portslade Vaccine Centre booked through the surgery, we will contact you when we are able to offer the second vaccine. We are aware of everyone who has been seen and are waiting further details regarding when we can start the process.
Please do not call as this just slows access to others and we are unable to offer any further guidance currently
The vaccine roll out continues at pace. The majority of patient in the first 5 cohorts have been vaccinated or contacted. If you are in the top 5 cohorts and are still waiting, please call the surgery. For clarity, that is anyone aged 65 or over, or assessed as Extremely vulnerable.
If you are aged 16-65 and considered at risk, please wait for a call, letter or text.
If you are aged over 60, you are the next cohort to be contacted. Do not contact us we will call you.
If you are a carer and not sure if you are eligible, please check the link on the news item recently published
Due to increased demand on our service and staff, the surgery will be closing for 1 hour between 1pm and 2pm daily until further notice. This is to allow for cleaning of the surgery, staff to take a break and to ensure we have some protected time for administrative tasks. Thank you for your understanding and support
If you require urgent help during this time please call 999. For anything else, please call when we reopen
Please try E Consult facility for anything non urgent and we will deal with this within 48 hours
