     From today the NHS 111 service in Kent, Medway and Sussex is being enhanced and it can now offer access to a wider range of health care professionals.

    GPs, paramedics, nurses, mental health professionals, dental nurses and pharmacists are all part of the new NHS111 clinical assessment service which launched today (1 October 2020).

     People who call 111 – free from mobiles or landlines 24/7 - or access the service via will speak to call handlers and/or healthcare professionals who will be able to assess symptoms over the phone, issue prescriptions and directly book people into onward care appointments if they need one.


  • All adults now able to have jab

    All adults can now book a life-saving Covid jab vaccine.

    From today, everyone aged 18 and over is being urged to arrange a jab if they have not had one as the NHS Covid Vaccination Programme, the biggest in health service history, begins the final push to protect the country.

    People can book on the national booking system – either the website or by calling 119 – or through their GP led service.

    People aged 39 and under who are eligible and pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine in line with updated JCVI guidance.

    This opening up to the final cohort of people comes fewer than 200 days since the NHS made history by delivering the first Covid vaccine.

      • COVID-19 vaccination scam alert

        We are sharing this information on behalf of Sussex  NHS Commissioners
        COVID-19 vaccination scam alert

        We are aware that some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination. In some cases, people are asked to press a number on their keypad or to send a text message to confirm they wish to receive the vaccine. Doing so is likely to result in a charge being applied to their phone bill. In other cases, callers are offering the vaccine for a fee or asking for bank details.

        People are warned to be alert to these scams.

      • Here is an update from Wellsbourne Healthcare.

        Dear friend of Wellsbourne Healthcare

        We hope that you and your family and friends are all staying safe during the current outbreak.  This is just to let you know about what’s happening at Wellsbourne Healthcare now and in the coming weeks.

        Infection Control To keep visitors and staff as safe as possible, we are open during our normal hours but we are asking people not to come to the surgery in person.  Instead, people can contact us by phone on 01273 000544 for all enquiries, appointments and repeat prescriptions.  If we do ask you to come in person, we have made arrangements to keep everyone safely distanced.  The Broadway Surgery is doing the same.  Lloyds Pharmacy is also open.

      • The national contact tracing service has started today (28 May)


        The national contact tracing service has started today (28 May), guidance and info is available here:

        The app is free and simple to use. Once you’ve downloaded the app, Bluetooth technology on your phone will record the distance between other phones that also have the app installed. If you become unwell with symptoms of coronavirus, you can allow the app to inform the NHS. This will trigger a notification that the NHS will then send anonymously to all other app users who you’ve been in significant contact with over the previous few days. Affected app users will be sent official NHS advice on what to do next.
