UPDATE ON SUCCESSFUL VACCINATION PROGRAMME AT CATHEDRAL HOUSE

Last week at Cathedral House, the Viaduct, Greenwood and Tolson Primary Care Networks administered 7,200 vaccines which is a staggering effort. This brought our total doses administered since December to a significant milestone of over 22,000 doses delivered which is a truly remarkable number. 

 

In reaching the Government’s target, we have invited everyone in the top four at risk categories and have started working into the next ‘at risk’ groups. We have also completed first doses at all 55 of the Care Homes we look after and the vast majority of housebound patients.

 

This has been a tremendous effort by all 26 GP Practices we cover and we would like to pay tribute to all members of staff who have gone above and beyond their duties in achieving this feat. From the retired GP’s  and Nurses to the medical students, from the Practice Managers, admin assistants and patients representatives, all have played their part. It is a credit to them that they are taking part in delivering the biggest vaccination delivery programme this country has ever seen, whilst continuing to run services at their own surgeries.

 

On behalf of the Project Management Team, we would like to thank GHCCG, Kirklees Council and the Voluntary Sector Organisations who each have played their part in supporting the roll out.

 

We will continue to work tirelessly to ensure each of our eligible patients will be invited when they are due a first or second dose.

Latest information on - COVID-19 Vaccination programme

The vaccine will be offered to those at greatest risk from Covid19 first, starting with people living in care homes, people over 80 years old and frontline health and social care workers. This is based on the guidance from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations which is available here. As more supplies of the vaccine or alternative vaccines become available it will be rolled out in phases to people aged between 80 and 50 and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable. People will be invited for a vaccine when it is their turn so they do not need to contact their practice or the NHS.

Further information

We will share further information with you as it becomes available. In the meantime, there are three things people can do to help:

  • Please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine - we will contact you when it’s the right time to you to have yours
  • Please act on your invite when it comes, and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them;

Please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
