COVID-19 Vaccination Programme: Update 24/2/21

All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease are now eligible for their vaccine. Patients will be contacted by NHS England or the surgery to book an appointment. 

Sea Mills Surgery is part of the Affinity Primary Care Network, a collaboration of six practices working together to offer vaccinations at the Greenway Centre in Southmead. For an update on progress of the Affinity Network accination programme Please go to the 'Sea Mills News' section of the web site. 

 

CALL TO ACTION - Plasma donation

NHSBT are asking 18-65 males who've had COVID to donate plasma for new treatment research that could save lives.

Vaccination of unpaid carers

As part of priority Group 6, we are now vaccinating people with underlying health conditions and unpaid carers. Unpaid carers are defined as:

people who are eligible for Carer’s Allowance, or

people who are the sole or main carer of an elderly or disabled person who is at increased risk of Covid-19 mortality and is therefore clinically vulnerable. 

To be eligible for vaccination as part of Group 6, carers must deliver personal care to the individual at risk. This does not include, for example, shopping or cleaning.

Registered Carers

If you are already registered as a carer with your GP or Local Authority, or you have been confirmed as eligible for Carer’s Allowance, you will be invited for vaccination by your GP or asked to book through the national booking service. Please do not contact the NHS. 

It is possible you may be invited for vaccination more than once. Please do not be concerned and only book one appointment.

Unregistered Carers

If you deliver personal care to an ‘at risk’ person but are not registered as a carer or are not eligible for Carer’s Allowance, you will also have the opportunity to be vaccinated. Further information about this will be available in the next few weeks. In the meantime, it is very important that you do not contact your GP or Local Authority directly to request a vaccination. 

In Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire we are contacting people in Group 6 in order of those at most risk of a more severe outcome from contracting Covid. Please do not be concerned if you are not contacted immediately for vaccination or have to wait a short while to book an appointment.  We are working tirelessly to vaccinate everyone who is eligible as quickly as possible. Please be patient and kind to our staff; we will be in touch when it is your turn.

Don’t forget, if you want additional support as a carer, or know of someone who does, please contact the relevant Carers Support Organisation, below:

Bristol and South Gloucestershire: info@carerssupportcentre.org.uk or 0117 965 2200

North Somerset: carersupport@alliancehomes.org.uk or 03000 120 120 (option 3)

Please note that the Carers Support organisations have no further information on the vaccine programme other than that above.

About the Sea Mills Surgery Team

The Primary Heath Care Team is led by a partnership of three Doctors and the Practice Manager. The Partners have a special interest in providing continuity of care for family planning, minor surgery, gynaecology and children's medicine. We also provide private services such as HGV medical examinations, the completion of health insurance forms, NHS travel vaccinations and claims.

Booking an appointment with a GP or Nurse at Sea Mills Surgery

We are offering telephone consultations as standard at Sea Mills Surgery. To book appointment with your GP or the Practice Nurse please follow the following instructions.

  • Please book your appointment the 'usual' way through our reception team or using Patient Access.
  • Please arrive at your appointment time. This will ensure you are not queuing with other patients and reduces footfall in the building. Arriving earlier for your appointment would not mean you will be seen earlier.
  • Hand santitiser is available inside the surgery
  • When you arrive for your appointment please ring the buzzer stating your name and who you are seeing and you will be collected from the front at your appointment time. We are aware the intercom system is not ideal - We are cleaning the buzzer frequently throughout the day until an alternative solution can be installed.
  • Please ensure you have a face covering (either a mask or scarf) and is on before you enter the building. We cannot offer you a face mask at this time as supplies are limited.
