COVID-19 Vaccine update
The Clays Practice, along with our colleagues at Arbennek Primary Care Network (PCN) (The Clays, Probus, Roseland and Brannel Surgeries) are delighted to announce that we have been given confirmation by the Governing Bodies that The Clay Area Health Centre in Roche has been given “Designated Site” status to commence COVID-19 vaccinations.
4.3.21 Our recent vaccine clinics for Group 6 have now finished and we are awaiting our next delivery for this group. We have not been notified when that will be. We will contact you as soon as we have more information.
Following the updated national guidelines we will only be contacting those in Group 6. Group 6 are patients aged 16-64 who are clinically vulnerable with underlying health conditions.
Our patients who are in Group 5 (aged 65-69) and have not yet been vaccinated you can book an appointment at one of the mass vaccination sites in Cornwall by phoning 119 or by clicking here to book online.
To all our other patients we politely ask you, please do not call us asking when you are likely to be vaccinated, as we will contact you in due course.
Please stay safe and follow the government guidelines.
Online Services - Access to online services via The Waiting Room will cease from July 27th 2020 and we will soon be using a new system called “SystmOnline”.
In the interim, If you order medication via The Waiting Room platform please either:
Please allow two/three full working days for your order and note that orders requested after 2.00pm will not be processed until the next working day. We will contact patients later in August with details how to sign up for the new “SystmOnline” when we have more details.
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
