Covid-19 vaccination clinic – Patient Information
We are delighted to confirm that we now have a permanent site in the West Wickham area offering COVID-19 vaccinations for our patients.
Each of the vaccination sites across the borough of Bromley are run by Primary Care Networks (PCN’s) that see GP practices working together in geographic areas to offer vaccinations from central sites. Most PCN’s in our local area, including ours, (HAYESWICK) are working with the Bromley GP Alliance to roll out the vaccination programme.
Please see this leaflet explaining the reasons behind the priority groups.
We are running the largest vaccination programme in the history of the NHS and our services are extremely busy. It is important that you wait to be contacted for your vaccine. You will not be missed. Please help your NHS and do not call asking for the vaccine.
The new vaccination site for for HAYESWICK PCN practices is at the West Wickham and Shirley Baptist Church so more vaccinations can be offered to our patients.
West Wickham & Shirley Baptist Church, Wickham Road, Shirley, CR0 8EH
Entrance: The way into the vaccination centre is via the sports hall on Monks Orchard Road.
By Bus: Main bus routes that run to the church are the 194, 119 and 356.
By Car: Parking on site is for blue badge holders only. The following roads offer on street parking which are near the site: Wickham Road, Oak Avenue, Monks Orchard Road. All roads are a five-minute walk away from the church.
Please note: Due to a strict social distancing policy and vaccine supply only patients with an appointment will be seen at the vaccine site. Please do not attend the site without a booked appointment.
Often the clinics are given very short notice of vaccine deliveries so please expect to be called at short notice. Invitations are being sent by text, telephone call and letters. Arrangements are also in place for housebound patients to receive their vaccinations at home.
Remember – You WILL be contacted when it’s your turn to be vaccinated.
This is going to be a long-term programme and it will likely take until at least Spring before all high-risk groups have been offered a COVID-19 vaccine.
Please continue to follow the national guidance to control the virus and save lives.
Information on the vaccine is available on www.selondonccg.nhs.uk/what-we-do/covid-19/
