COVID VACS UPDATE


PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND YOUR SECOND VACCINE APPOINTMENTS. WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF DNA'S AND WE DO NOT WANT WASTED VACCINES.  WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET A SECOND VACCINE IF YOU DO NOT ATTEND YOUR BOOKED APPOINTMENT.


NHSE are now inviting patients 18 and over to attend Central Birmingham Millenium Point Mass vaccination centre and others, this is an alternative to  your local PCN run clinics, but if you wish to book and attend the Birmingham Clinics please follow the instructions on the letter when you receive it or visit www.nhs.uk/conditions.coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccine/ 


The surgery and local PCN are continuing to do 2nd vaccines and when vaccines are available 1st vaccines too.


If you have a mobile telephone number that you are happy for us to identify as your preferred method of contact (we can then send you text invitations / messages which saves time in getting messages to you) please let us know by texting the words "sms consent" to 07756525536 with your full name, we will then amend your records. Thank you



ADVICE FOR TEENAGERS

We understand that there are many issues and pressures affecting teenagers, so if you have health concerns of any kind, and don't feel able to discuss them at home, we're here to help.

We don't want you to delay in seeking help and it's important that you you know that we will see you on your own, or with your choice of parent/guardian/another relative or a trusted friend.

We also want to assure you that we offer confidential advice, treatment and referral when needed. (The only possible exception is that if you are worried that you are at risk of harm or abuse we may need to share some information which is done after discussion with you.)

It seems that doctor's receptionists have a reputation for being dragons, but we promise you that our's are not! If you have any concerns or preferences (e.g. to see a male or female clinician), or if you have any questions at all, please explain and they will do their best to help.

We've tried to gather together a list of useful websites which you can access by clicking on the link below, and if you have any other suggestions please feel free to email us on manorhouse.marstongreen@nhs.net (Please don't include any confidential information.)
