Church Lane Surgery is part of the Braintree Primary Care Network working in collaboration with all Braintree GP practices on the Covid-19 vaccination rollout.
We are now receiving vaccines and actively calling patients to book in first vaccinations. We are following the Government specific guidance on priority cohorts so please do not contact the practice as we will be proactively contacting you. Details of the Government priority cohort list can be found on the Gov.uk website.
However, if you have received a letter from the Government to say you are now eligible it is possible you may be able to book into a vaccination centre on-line. If this of interest please visit www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination.
In the meantime please stay safe and continue to follow the lockdown guidance.
Our new telephone system is now installed. The new system will give us greater flexibility when we need to change things or add current messaging and will help us to improve the service we offer to our patients by phone. Please bear with us while we get used to the new system.
The Government and NHSE have now approved the offering of flu vaccinations to patients in the 50-64-year old age group range. We will be actively contacting patients by text message and other means during the coming weeks but please call us if you would like to book for a flu vaccination with our nursing team. Alternatively, your local Pharmacy will also be able to do this vaccination for you.
Please note that we still have a duty to ensure social distancing and robust infection control procedures so foot-flow through the practice will be closely monitored for the safety of patients and staff.
Please do not come to the surgery without an appointment. COVID-19 Vaccinations are now taking place- please wait to be contacted for your appointment or click here for more information.
