Coronavirus Vaccinations 

The coronavirus vaccination programme continues.  We are working with other practices in Slough to provide Covid vaccinations from two sites in Slough. These are Salt Hill leisure centre and Langley Health Centre.  The NHS intention is that all adults over 18 will be vaccinated.  If you have not been invited yet please be patient as we will shortly be inviting you.

 

Getting vaccinated only protects you from the virus, so you will still need to follow IPC and testing measures in your workplace, and follow general advice at work, at home and when you are out and about:

•     Practice social distancing

•     Wear a face mask

•     Wash your hands carefully and frequently

•     Follow the current guidance: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

 

  • COVID-19 Help and Support available

Help and Support is available for patients during this time, click here or on 'Covid-19 Help and Support for Patients' tab on the right hand-side, under 'Further Information' heading. 

  • AccuRX is now being used at the practice

The practice is beginning to use a system of individual text messages to patients called AccuRX.  We will be able to text individual patients as regards their clinical care.  If you do not want to receive  text messages please contact reception so that you can opt out of this system.  Please also contact reception if your mobile number has changed so that we have accurate records.
