Spring Boosters for Covid 19

 
 
The Spring Booster programme began on Monday 21st March, but many of our patients won’t become eligible for their 4th dose (6 months after their 3rd) until early April, after we close. As they become eligible they will be contacted by the NHS by letter, text or email and will be able to book appointments at the local pharmacies and other vaccination sites by calling 119 or going online: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/

Green Impact

This practice is delighted to be signed up to the Green Impact for Health Toolkit and is actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint. The climate emergency is also a health emergency, and health care in the UK contributes 5.4% of the UK's carbon emissions. We need to enhance the health of our current population without compromising the health of future generations, and this means operating within the sustainable boundaries of the planet. Fortunately most of the solutions for the planet also make our health better - for example eating a mainly plant-based diet, engaging in active travel and exercise in nature, avoiding smoking, reducing pollution etc all enhance our health and reduce our need for medications, with further benefits to the NHS, your health and the carbon footprint of healthcare. Take a look at www.greenerpractice.co.uk to learn more about this.
