PATIENT INFORMATION ABOUT BALDRY GARDENS COVID VACCINE CLINIC
When will the clinic start?
We plan to run our first clinic on Saturday 6 February 2020.
How will I be invited?
Your registered GP will be inviting you by text. The text will have a link to our appointment book, and will show as accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk/...
Please be careful as there are scam texts circulating. We will not be asking for your bank details – the vaccine is free to all patients.
For those patients who don’t have a mobile phone, we will be contacting by phone.
Please make sure your registered GP has your correct contact details – mobile and home phone line and email address if you have one.
You may also receive a letter from the national recall system, and you can book at other vaccine clinic sites by following the instructions in the letter. This recall system links into clinics at Westbury Chemist at 84-90 Streatham High Road (open now), and Copes Pharmacy at 570-572 Streatham High Road (due to open soon).
Who will be invited?
We will be focussing on ensuring that every patient over 70 years or age, or who has been ‘shielding’ due to high risk from Covid-19 infection has been offered a chance to be vaccinated. The national target is to ensure all patients in these cohorts are vaccinated by 15 February 2021.
When we have contacted all these patients at least once, we will start offering appointments to >65 year olds.
What about housebound patients?
We will be arranging to vaccinate all housebound patients at home. This will be done by the nurse, pharmacist, doctor or health care assistant in your usual GP practice.
Included in these lists are all those patients who could not access vaccination at Streatham Place Surgery – where we were vaccinating whilst we set up Baldry Gardens as a vaccination clinic.
You will be contacted by your practice to let you know when to expect a visit. If you think you can get to Baldry Gardens, as it is nearer your home, then let whoever calls you know, and they can book you into this clinic site.
How do I get to Baldry Gardens Health Centre?
Baldry Gardens Health Centre is on the corner of Baldry Gardens and Streatham High Road, opposite the new Access storage units.
You can get 250 or 109 bus.
There is parking on the road for 1 hour for about 5 cars, and some disabled bays as well. Please try to walk, cycle or come by bus if you can manage it, so that less able bodied patients who need to drive can park nearby.
What if I need to change my appointment?
If you have booked online, you can cancel and change your appointment via the same online system.
If you were booked by your GP practice, then please call them back so they can change your appointment.
What can I do to help make sure the clinic runs well?
It will help us to run the clinic well, if everyone please can
- Attend your appointment as booked, if you can’t keep it please cancel it so someone else can use it
- Don’t come early – we will be having 72 patients an hour into the clinic, and there is limited waiting space
- Try not to be late – we will try and fit you in, but we might ask you to rebook if you are more than 10 minutes late and there is not space in the clinic
- Do not wear too many clothes and wear a short sleeved shirt or top under your coat. We need to able to access your upper arm easily.
- Do not bring shopping, or other things with you. Someone might trip over them.
- Bring your usual walking aid if you use one. The centre has full disabled access so there should be easy access if you are in a wheelchair
- Observe the one way flow and the requirement to keep 2 metres apart, other than when having your vaccine
