COVID-19 BOOSTER: we are currently inviting patients for a COVID-19 booster (which provides longer-term protection against becoming seriously ill with COVID-19) Patients will be invited to the Altrincham Health & Wellbeing Centre for a COVID-19 booster if it’s been at least six months since their second COVID-19 vaccination and in line with official NHS England guidance which prioritises the most vulnerable. For more information please click here
FLU VACCINATION: patients will be invited to attend their annual flu vaccination appointment at Altrincham Medical Practice.
Please wait to be invited for your appointment rather than contact the GP practice: we will be in touch shortly.
COVID-19 VACCINATIONS IN SCHOOL FOR AGES 12-15: if your child has missed their COVID-19 vaccination in school, please contact the school nurse not the GP practice. The Covid-19 vaccination programme in schools is being delivered by school immunisation teams, not the GP practice. Click here for further information
Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make Altrincham Medical Practice as safe as possible and this will continue: protecting our patients and staff is our priority. Patients are asked to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the practice. Our staff will continue to wear PPE. Those visiting us are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the Covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel we should take these small precautions to protect people.
To demonstrate proof of their COVID-19 vaccination, patients can access the NHS Covid Pass using the NHS App, NHS website or by calling the NHS helpline on 119 and selecting ‘NHS COVID Pass’ to request a letter. NHS appointment cards cannot be used to demonstrate vaccination status. Please do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status For full details click here
