 COVID-19 UPDATE

 

24.02.2021

2981 Glebe House Surgery patients have now been vaccinated either at The Forum or at vaccination sites further afield, this equates to 55% of the eligible patient population.

We have now vaccinated the majority of patients in cohorts 1-4 and are trying to contact the remainder.

All 18-64 yr olds with underlying health conditions (based on the searches that are run via our computer system - SystemOne) have been invited, anybody aged 65/66/67 will have recieved a letter inviting them to a mass vaccination site however if you would prefer to attend locally contact the surgery and we can arrange this.

Please bear with us as we await instruction from the government about who we can invite and when, and when next vaccine supply will be, however we WILL be in touch when it is your turn.

Thank you for your co-operation

Hambleton Covid – 19 Vaccinations LATEST INFORMATION

We are continuing to offer patient vaccinations at our Vaccination Centre situated at The Forum, Bullamoor Road, Northallerton, DL6 1LP. Patients who receive their first dose of vaccine at The Forum will also be given an appointment from their GP for their second dose, probably at The Forum in due course once more is known about vaccine deliveries.


Some patients will receive a letter inviting them to book a vaccination appointment at one of the mass vaccination centres which are being set up by the Government. If you already have an appointment for your first or second dose at The Forum we would ask you to disregard this letter and keep your appointment at The Forum. If you have not yet been offered a first dose appointment at The Forum, you may wish to take up the offer of an appointment at a mass vaccination centre. This is your choice. However, if you decide that attending The Forum is more convenient for you, simply disregard the letter and rest assured that your GP practice will contact you in due course to offer you a vaccination appointment at The Forum.

Following on from comments on social media we would like to reassure patients that practices in the Hambleton area started administering Covid vaccinations back in December 2020, we are currently working through the over 80's age group and care homes. Appointment availibility is based on when a delivery is received at the vaccination site.

Please bear with us during these unprecedented times and we will contact you when you become eligable, this is based on the priority groups laid out by the Department of Health & Social Care.

For further information on these groups please go to:

Dear Patients,


As we go into the second lock down, the practice would like to reassure you that we continue to be available if you need us.


As has been the case since the start of lockdown, we are operating a "Doctor first " policy that means all patients seeking medical advice will be offered a telephone conversation with a GP or advanced Nurse Practitioner first, and then the appointment may be changed into a face to face or video consultation if we are unable to safely assess you and manage your problem over the telephone. This is in line with national NHS guidance which aims to help us keep all patients using our service as safe as possible.

 

We need to be able to safely care for the elderly, immunosuppressed and vulnerable patients using our service at the same time as managing patients who may be infectious. Initial telephone triage allows us to ensure these groups of patients are not sitting together in the waiting room. Any patients with higher risk symptoms will be offered review at the hot hub clinic based at the Friarage.

 

In addition, we have the "econsult" system available through our website for patients who have less urgent queries and a Practice pharmacist who can offer advice regarding medication related problems.


We would appreciate your patience when trying to access the service. There has been a lot of pressure on our phone lines and in recent weeks we have been busier than before the pandemic. We are doing our best to keep you safe.


All urgent problems will be dealt with by our duty doctor - even when all appointments have already been taken for the day: we are keen to ensure that everyone who needs urgent assessment can get appropriate care.

 

We are keen to make sure everyone understands we are still open and here to help in these more challenging times.
