Good News! It has been confirmed that there will be a COVID Vaccination HUB in the centre on Newton Abbot which will be ran by the Federation of Newton Abbot practices, this includes; Albany, Devon Square, Cricketfield, Buckland, Bovey & Chudleigh, Kingsteignton and Kingskerswell & Ipplepen. The HUB is located at Sherbourne House (Kingsteignton Road, Newton Abbot, TQ12 2PG), which has been set up and made suitable to run a COVID Vaccination clinic for all of our patients.
It is absolutely vital that you do not call the surgery or try to make an appointment for the vaccination. We have got to invite people based on priorities determined by NHS England and the Government. We will call patients when it is their time and it will take several months to get through all patients in the current priority groups, so please be patient.
Firstly we have begun by calling all of our over 80 year old patients who are classed as 'Clinically at risk' and started booking them in as per the current government guidelines, as well as all residents in care homes and their carers.
Please only go to Sherbourne House if you have been invited in for a vaccination. The site is closed at all other times and cannot take ad-hoc enquiries when it is open.
Delivering this vaccination programme is very complex and will take staff resource from our surgeries at a time when shielding and isolations is already impacting on staff levels. Please practice self-care when you can, use 111 online for advice, or your Community Pharmacist may be able to help. Please only contact the surgery if you have an urgent medical enquiry or if you have been asked to schedule a routine follow up appointment.
If you are a healthcare professional please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your role, along with a letter from your employer confirming this or work ID so we can update your patient record and add you to the relevant priority list to be called once supplies and delivery allow.
Many thanks for your patience; we will ensure that the website is kept up to date with the latest information.
