IMP PRIMARY CARE NETWORK COVID VACCINATION PROGRAMME

We are pleased to finally be able to announce delivery of the Covid Vaccine which will allow Abbey Medical Practice to deliver this service to our patients, we apologise we have been unable to give this notice earlier, vaccine delivery dates come at very short notice.   We will commence on Saturday 16th January and due to the complexity of the vaccine, we need to deliver this as a group of practices working together from a vaccination base at the Lincolnshire Showground.   

NHS England have given us strict guidelines for cohorts and priority groups so…..

PLEASE DON’T CALL US – WE WILL CALL TO INVITE YOU

Practices are working really hard to both deliver this and continue primary care services so please be patient.   The first cohort is Care Homes, staff and patients over 80. 

Then working through the age groups 75 to 80, 70 to 75 etc.

However, even within those cohorts priority order depends on health needs also.

Imp healthcare practices are excited to be involved in this national programme and working very hard to get this up and running and protect our patients as soon as possible.     

Vaccine delivery dates are determined by NHS England and we have to work to their schedule so please understand this and be patient.

 

 

 

Extended Access to Appointments

 

The IMP Federation (of which Abbey Medical Practice is a part of) is pleased to be able to offer patients access to routine GP appointments at evenings and weekends.     The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.

The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods.

Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments.

For urgent matters at evenings and weekends, patients will continue to access the GP Out of Hours Services at Lincoln County Hospital via NHS 111 or the Minor Injuries Unit at John Coupland Hospital.

 

PLEASE NOTE   -  If a patient wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they will need to travel to another local GP practice or a central GP practice hub and will not see their own GP.

Ultimately, this is about allowing a patient to see a GP or practice nurse at a time that is convenient to them.

 

To arrange an appointment or for more information on when and where appointments are available, speak to a member of the Reception Team or call the practice on 01522 530334

 

Extended Access to Appointments     PLEASE NOTE - THERE IS NO EXTENDED ACCESS CURRENTLY DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS - WE WILL INFORM YOU WHEN THIS IS AVAILABLE AGAIN ACROSS ALL PRACTICES

 PLEASE NOTE   -  These appointments are for Routine - Non Emergency issues.
