Important information to all patients
The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.
Each GP practices won’t be vaccinating its own patients – we’re doing this as groups across Liverpool – but using patient lists from each practice.
You’ll get a phone call or letter when it’s your time to get a vaccination – you don’t need to request one from us or another NHS organisation.
You are on our practice register therefore you will definitely be called.
Over 80s are being invited first, but don’t be worried if you’re over 80 and you haven’t heard anything yet, or you know someone else who has been invited but you haven’t – so far vaccinations have only started in some parts of Liverpool, but during January more people over 80 will receive their invitations. If you’re in this age group but haven’t heard anything yet it doesn’t mean that you’re a lower priority.
- If you are in pain or in need of support please phone your usual dental practice. This may be because you have severe toothache or a dental infection, or you have noticed other changes inside your mouth such as a white patch, red patch, a lump or an ulcer that won’t heal. All dental practices should be able to provide advice and management to you over the phone. This includes giving advice, guidance and prescriptions, which you can collect from your local pharmacy.
- If you do not have a dentist, please call the Cheshire & Merseyside Dental Helpline on 0161 476 9651. They will assess you and provide advice over the phone which may result in a remote consultation with a dentist.
- If your dentist or the dentist you have been referred to from the dental helpline think that you need urgent face-to face treatment, they will refer you to a designated dental clinic where you will be assessed and any requisite emergency dental treatment undertaken.
With the vaccine rollout in England now opened to those aged 25 and over, young frontline health workers have joined forces to make the facts clearer for young people and urge them to both get the vaccine when their turn comes and get tested regularly, even if they have no symptoms.Read More
