Covid 19 Update
Posted on 4 Jun 2021
Many of you will be aware that Swineshead Medical Group has been working with Greyfriars Surgery and the Sidings Medical Practice to offer Covid Vaccinations to all eligible patients within the Boston Locality on behalf of the Boston Primary Care Network.
The vaccination hub, at the Sidings Medical Practice, came into being on 6th January 2021. Due to our busy work commitments we have just finished delivering the vaccines and are now handing over to the Princess Royal Sports Arena (PRSA) who will continue to deliver vaccinations for patients in our area.
The 3 practices came together and have worked extremely hard over the past 5 months and have delivered over 30,000 vaccinations for all 6 Boston GP practices. This includes care home residents, housebound patients and other patients from the most clinically vulnerable groups as identified in national guidance.
Rest assured, if you are eligible for a vaccine or become eligible for a vaccine, you will be contacted and sent a link to book an appointment at one of the local vaccination hubs.
If you need to book a vaccination we advise you to call '119' who will be able to book you an appointment.
We were able to facilitate the Vaccination hub due to the continued hard work of our teams, both clinical and non-clinical staff. Working long hours and also providing cover on their days off to enable us to vaccinate as many patients as our vaccine supply allowed. We should also give acknowledgement to our fantastic team of volunteers, supporting our staff, providing car park cover, directing patients and numerous other duties. We truly could not have done this without them.
The community spirit and gratitude has been overwhelming. We have received letters and cards of thanks as well as numerous donations and gifts ranging from hampers, cakes, chocolates, flowers, the list goes on.
We are truly grateful to all that have made such nice gestures and it really makes all the hard work feel worthwhile.
Keep safe and together we will beat the pandemic.
