Welcome to Dr Duggleby & Partners
FLU & COVID BOOSTER PROGRAMME:
Text or Email from the NHS regarding your booster vaccine. This has not been sent by the practice. Once we have confirmed our clinic dates and venue we will contact you by text or telephone inviting you to book an appointment. We hope to start the programme in early October and the venue will be in Northallerton. Please try to avoid contacting the surgery regarding this.
Following yesterday’s announcement from the JCVI and Government about the covid booster programme we are planning how we will deliver this locally. Eight Hambleton GP practices will work together again to deliver this from a site in Northallerton in a similar way to the initial vaccine programme which we successfully ran earlier in the year. This will also include our flu programme, enabling co-administration of the vaccines as per the national advice. We will also be able to provide vaccines to those who still need their 1st / 2nd doses, and for those who are severely immunosuppressed that now require a 3rd dose to complete their initial course. We will follow the JCVI cohorts 1-9 for the booster programme, vaccinating our most vulnerable communities first. You will receive a text message, telephone call or letter when it is your turn. Please don’t contact us to ask further questions at this stage, we are awaiting further details and will provide more information shortly.
BLOOD TUBE URGENT UPDATE:
If you have a routine, non-urgent blood test booked with Stokesley Surgery, we may be contacting you to reschedule. This is because of a global shortage of the tubes we use when we take blood samples that's affecting the NHS nationwide. Urgent tests will still go ahead. We are sorry for any inconvenience. All non urgent blood tests will recommence after 17th September.
