COVID Vaccinations

 
Brookside Surgery, along with the 11 other Rugby practices, is currently participating in the Coronavirus (COVID 19) vaccination delivery at a central location in Rugby.
 
The first wave of patients started on the 16th December. We expect the vaccine supply and delivery to rapidly increase during January.
Presently, we are experiencing a high volume of calls regarding the COVID 19 vaccination programme and we ask for your patience, particularly with reception staff. Please do not contact us and instead wait for the surgery to be in touch with you regarding your eligibility to receive the vaccination. The number of calls we are receiving is diverting the attention of the reception team from dealing with urgent issues at this busy time.
 
To date, this is the largest vaccination programme in the world and we as a practice are proud to be part of this. At this time, routine services may be delayed owing to the time pressures and logistical challenges this operation requires. The Brookside patient community have been very supportive of the practice during the pandemic and we hope this patience and respect can continue at this challenging and exciting time in the battle against Coronavirus.
 
 
 

LATEST NEWS

 

Dear Brookside Surgery Community,

 

Amidst another national lockdown, we hope this update finds you well. 

 

Firstly, Brookside are excited to have a new doctor join the team. Dr Josie Cassell joined the practice in early January. Dr Cassell was a Registrar at the practice in 2019 and we are delighted to have bolstered our medical team with a very capable pair of hands.

 

Brookside Surgery remains OPEN for your health needs. Presently, the practice is also involved in delivering the ambitious and unrivalled Coronavirus vaccination programme and as such, routine appointments may take a little longer than normal. Urgent care will always be provided and we have support from a Paramedic visiting service and other healthcare professionals to ensure our rural patient's needs are met. 

 

We are proud to say all our over 80's, majority of housebound and those in a care home have been offered or had a Coronavirus vaccination. This week we will start inviting those over 75 years. WE WILL BE CONTACTING YOU. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SURGERY. The vaccination programme continues to take place at Locke House in Rugby and will continue for the foreseeable future. Rugby needs a central hub for logistical and storage reasons, and this is the rationale for this. 

 

We hope this provides and update and we endeavour to keep our patient population informed. Thank you for your patience and understanding particularly with the reception team at this pivotal moment in the fight against Coronavirus.
