Autumn Booster Campaign

The Saltaire & Windhill Medical Partnership remains open and we continue to be here to help you.

As you will no doubt be aware, there is an upcoming booster campaign for COVID which commences on 1st September 2022.  Our practice will be offering the vaccine to patients who are housebound or in care homes.  We will not be offering clinics to any other groups.

Why are we only offering the vaccine to housebound and those in care homes?

The Covid-19 vaccination campaign has been a massive drain on staff and resources, and has pulled us away from delivering core GP services.  We feel that fully taking part in the campaign would affect the staffing and service delivery of normal general practice. With ongoing catch up for long term conditions and continued high demand for GP appointments we do not feel we can take on COVID vaccines without risking an impact on routine service delivery.

How will eligible patients get a vaccine?

As before, a number of local sites will be offering COVID vaccines. Patients can book online at the nhs web site or ring 119.
