A PLEA FROM YOUR SURGERY
We are extremely busy at both surgeries at the moment due to staff working at the Covid Vaccination Site and we are organising appointments for the Covid Vaccinations.
Patients who are eligible to receive a Covid-19 Vaccination will contacted to book an appointment.
If you have not received a phone call to book a vaccine, please do not worry, we will notify everyone in priority order when the vaccine becomes available.
WE WOULD BE GRATEFUL IF YOU DO NOT CALL US TO CHECK
* IF YOU CAN BOOK - WE WILL CALL YOU
* WHICH GROUP YOU ARE IN
* WHEN IT WILL BE DONE
* IF YOU CAN GET PRIORITY DUE TO AN ILLNESS (EVERYONE IS CODED ON OUR SYSTEM FOR ILLNESSES/PROBLEMS AND THAT WILL ALREADY REFLECT WHICH GROUP YOU HAVE BEEN PLACED IN)
* ABOUT SHIELDING/MASK EXEMPTION LETTERS
We have approximately 10,000 patients to vaccinate and it will take some time. We are working on the 75-80s, the care homes and the Housebound patients over the next 2 weeks as that is our priority.
The GP's CANNOT issue letters for shielding patients or mask exemption, you will need to go on GOV.UK
for information on this.

THE LEYLAND COLLABORATIVE
We have been working hard to increase the numbers of appointments available to you. This has involved developing a partnership with other local practices, which we are pleased to tell you has now resulted in the formulation of the group named above. The Leyland Collaborative consists of the following practices Worden Medical Centre, Central Park Surgery, Sandy Lane Surgery and The Village Surgeries Croston & Eccleston. The new service available will provide access to GP appointments at weekends from December 2017 and weekdays will also commence from the 1st January 2018. The service is available to all patients within this group on a proportionate basis however it is important to be aware that the appointment may not necessarily be at this practice. These are all additional appointments so it not the case that patients of other practices will utilise all our appointments.
