welcome to Bingley Medical Practice
We know people are eager to get protected, but please help us by kindly not contacting us for information about the vaccine or to ask for an appointment. Our team will contact you directly when we have vaccine available for you.
To prepare, please set yourself up for online booking, by dowloading and registering on the NHS App (on your phone or tablet). This will make booking your vaccine appointment much easier. You can find more information here.
vaccine programme - progress as of 24th January
|tier||cohort/age||number of patients receiving at least one dose||target|
|2||age 80+||761 (92%)||824|
|3||age 75-79||395 (77%)||515|
|4a||age 70-74||45 (5%)||810|
Once all of those in the current "tiers" have been offered a vaccine, and when directed by the national Joint Committee Vaccination & Immunisation (JCVI), we will move on to the next "tier". Their full guidance can be found here.
Vaccine supply has been slow and intermittent so far. Hopefully this will improve in the coming weeks: we are ready!
be alert for fraud
Coronavirus vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS.
Anyone who claims to be able to provide you with a vaccine for a fee is likely to be committing a crime. The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.
Contact the Police online or by calling 102, and forward suspicious text messages to 7726.
You can find more information here.
Do you think you might have Covid19?.... get advice now
We're still here and ready to help!
The best way to contact us is to use eConsult: you can do this any day and anytime. You'll find instant help and advice, and we will reply usually within a few hours, and always before the end of the next working day.
We may give you a ring to find out more about your problem and make a plan. We may also ask you to send us some photos to help us make a diagnosis. And sometimes we will ask you to come to the Practice for an examination or test.
If you have been asked to come to the Practice, we will usually ask you to wait in your car, and then phone you when we're ready for you. We may ask you to ring us when you're in the car park.
Please don't come to the building unless you have been asked to. If you have been asked to come, please wear a mask or face covering if you have one. Thank you.
