Understanding General Practice
Following negative and damaging coverage about general practice in the media, our Chief Executive Michael Wright, has produced a video to help patients understand some of the unique challenges that practices face daily.
If you are eligible for a Covid Vaccine you can book an appointment for your vaccination using the online National Booking Service; you can access the website here or ring 119 option 2.
If you require transport please inform staff at the time of booking or contact the Surgery. Please select the link for further Transport information.
Oakwood Surgery will have clinics available to book for the coronavirus although these may not be a daily occurence.
We are using the Astra Zeneca vaccine. A few patients have expressed concerns after media reports. We would like to reassure you about this.
There have been a few rare instances of specific type of blood clots and clotting issues (37 cases per 17 million) and the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) continues to advise that the benefits of the vaccine far out weighs the risks. This is much smaller than the risk of a blood clot (less than 1 in a million) in the healthy population.
If you need confirmation that you have received 2 vaccinations for international travel you can check your vaccination status on the NHS App.
If you do not have access to online services you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119 once you have received 2 vaccines; please only request this letter after at least 5 days after your 2nd vaccine. (It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive).
You CANNOT request a letter from your GP practice.
