SERVICE UPDATE

Thursday 14 January 2021

When it’s your turn to have a coronavirus vaccine, the NHS will ask you to attend an appointment at a GP practice (which could be different to your own practice), a community pharmacy, or at a community vaccination site, either by phone call, letter or a text message. The NHS will NEVER ask for payment for the vaccine or for your bank details.  Please delete an ignore any suspicious messages asking for payment.

An NHS letter will soon land on the doormats of everyone over the age of 80 in Calderdale. This invites you to book your Covid-19 vaccination using a national booking service. If you have already had your first vaccination, you can just ignore this letter. We will be in touch with you when we are ready to give you your second vaccination. If you are over 80 and have not had your first vaccination, you can go ahead and book online or by calling 119. The booking service will offer you the choice to attend your nearest National Vaccination Centre, or if you prefer, you can choose to attend our local Community Pharmacy Vaccination Centre.  The surgery will continue to provide vaccination clinics in North Halifax in the coming weeks and we will ensure all eligible patients receive their invitation for the COVID-19 vaccination in due course.

With our NHS colleagues in North Halifax, we have so far given the first vaccine dose to over 700 of our most vulnerable patients.  Each group of patients will be contacted in turn with an invitation.

Changes to Products available on Prescription

After careful consultation with the Public, NHS Calderdale CCG has recommended that Practices stop routinely prescribing branded medicines and a number of lower value, self-care products, which are widely available to buy without prescription from pharmacies and supermarkets. The Practices in North Halifax are all working to stop prescribing items commonly available in supermarkets and pharmacies such as:

  • Baby Milks
  • Infant Colic products
  • Vitamin supplements
  • Emollients (moisturisers) for minor dry skin conditions
  • Cosmetic products e.g. facial hair products
  • antifungal nail paints
  • Sunscreen products
