Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme

Thousands of people eligible for a Spring COVID-19 booster have not yet come forward.

The NHS in Sussex is calling for anyone who now due a second COVID-19 vaccination to book theirs this week. 

Latest figures show that 116,628 of those who are eligible have had their spring or second booster, but 91,894 people are now eligible and are yet to come forward or be vaccinated.

With hundreds of appointments available this week, people are being urged to book theirs as soon as possible. 

People are eligible for a spring or second booster if they are aged 75 and over or they are aged 12 years and over and have a weakened immune system.

People living in older people’s care homes are also eligible and specific visits are being planned in order to make sure these people get their vaccination.

In the majority of cases, people will receive the Moderna vaccination – one of the three approved vaccines in the UK widely used throughout the programme to date.

People can book an appointment from three months of the date of their original booster.

No invite is needed. The NHS is also calling on family members and friends to make sure their loved ones have received their vaccine if they are due.

Call 119 from 8am to 8pm or use the National Booking Service website to book a local appointment.

Walk in sessions are also available every day.

For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances.  These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

Engage E-Consultations

Request help from your practice easily online!

This is our new online consultation service

Patients are now able to use this service to contact the Practice about medical or administrative queries or prescription requests. The system is called Engage Consult and you can start using it by clicking here and completing your registration details. 

Any queries received via engage consult before 11.00am on a surgery working day will be dealt with and responded to on the same day.

Not all medical queries will require a GP appointment, however where an appointment is required a member of the Practice team will be in contact to arrange a phone call or face to face consultation. 

Please be advised that there is a limited number of queries (including during the weekend) that can be received by practice on a day. When you are not able to submit the request, this means the message box has reached the capacity of requests. 

Please wait at least 24 hours to receive a response from the surgery before you submit a repeat enquiry.

We hope this service will enable patients to get the help they require as quickly as possible.
