Covid 19 and Vaccination Information
As from today ( 30th June 2022) Park Surgery has paused doing Covid vaccinations. We will not be doing any in July and August and will resume in September. This also includes any patients in care homes, home visits and Immunosuppressed patients.
Please contact the national booking system, you can then receive a vaccination at a centre convenient to you.
Please search online for 'Book or Manage a Covid vaccine NHS UK'
If you have any trouble gaining a vaccination appointment you can call the HIOW vaccination Helpline 0300 561 0018
Please do not contact the GP surgery about COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing a person’s COVID-19 vaccination status.
Beware: Covid Passport Scam E-mails
We have had reports of scam e-mails being sent to patients reguarding "Covid passport", purporting to be from Patient Access.
Patient Access users are advised to therefore check the name and e-mail address of the sender: all e-mails from Patient Access will come from: @patientaccess.com. Do not click on any log-in links that you receive via e-mail, instead visit the site using the address bar of your browser - this way you know you are on the genuine Patient Access log in page. You can find more information and guidance on their information security page.
Demonstrating COVID-19 vaccination status
Anyone living in England can now get their proof of COVID-19 vaccination status through the NHS App.
You can also call 119 to request a letter of proof of Covid-19 vaccination status.
Message from the Park and St Francis Research Team: "Please help us Fight Covid-19 by volunteering for research"
The PRINCIPLE trial aims to find treatments that reduce hospital admissions and improve symptoms for people with COVID-19.
Patients over 18 years with COVID-19 symptoms and a positive COVID-19 test in the last 14 days have been volunteering to enroll in this trial over the last 2.5 years. Recruitment for this trial is currently suspended whist the data is being analysed, please see the Primary Care Clinical Trials Unit website for further information about this study.
If you'd like to know more about COVID 19 research and how you can contribute, please visit the Be Part of Research site, which is run by the National Institute for Health Research.'
"Thank-you to all our fabulous patients who have supported us in the various Covid-19 (and other) trials we have been running over the last 12 months or so - we really appreciate the time you have given us! Your contributions, have been, and continue to be, vital in the development of effective strategies, treatments and vaccines that will help control the virus, both now, and as it continues to evolve."
