We would like to inform our patients that Bildeston will be undertaking the covid vaccination programme starting mid-January. The service will run collaboratively with our two local practices, Constable Country Practice at East Bergholt and Hadleigh Health Centre. The two hubs will be Hadleigh and East Bergholt.
We will not be writing to patients to invite them due to the short notice required to deliver the programme, instead we will call our patients from the surgery by telephone to invite you to attend either the Hadleigh or East Bergholt site. This may change as we move through the cohorts. Please can we request that you do not call us, we will call you.
Patients will be invited following the strict criteria we have to follow. The first cohort will be patients aged 80 and over. We cannot vaccinate you earlier outside your cohort. We need your help to communicate this information to relatives, friends and neighbours in this cohort who do not have access to social media, by letting them know that we will be calling them in January.
Please be patient with us, the roll out of the covid vaccination programme requires a lot of planning in order for us all to deliver safely and efficiently while we continue
to deliver our normal service.
