Nantwich and Rural Primary Care Network are ready to deliver the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
Nantwich and Rural Primary Care Network is made up of 5 local GP Practices, namely Audlem Medical Practice, Kiltearn Medical Centre, Nantwich Health Centre, Tudor Surgery and Wrenbury Medical Centre.
Together and in association with NHS Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Cheshire East Integrated Care Partnership, Nantwich Town Council and Cheshire East Council, we are working together to deliver the COVID-19 vaccination programme to patients, with some help from the Buddies.
We have been working hard to establish a local vaccination centre. The vaccination centre for our patients will be located at Nantwich Civic Hall, Market Street, Nantwich. The Civic Hall has now passed all inspections and the site is ready.
The NHS is prioritising the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine. When it is your time to receive your vaccine, you will receive an invitation to come forward. Please do not contact the NHS or turn up at the site for an appointment until you are contacted.
Dr David Holden, Clinical Lead for Nantwich and Rural PCN said;
“I am thrilled that we can finally begin to vaccinate our local population. We have all been working hard to establish a robust system within our vaccination centre and I send out my personal thanks to all involved, including the staff at Nantwich Civic Hall, who have been so very accommodating and have worked with us to create a safe and effective vaccination process for our patients”.
“To all of our patients, we ask for your understanding, we will be concentrating on our elderly and most vulnerable populations first. We will be working to the government guidance, which may be subject to change and you may be called at short notice. In the meantime, please continue to keep to the rules and follow the advice of ‘stay home, protect our NHS and saves lives.’"
“While you are waiting for your turn, please the rules of the national lockdown that started in England at midnight on Tuesday (5 January). We wish everyone the very best for 2021 and please keep safe”.
Dr Andrew Wilson, clinical chair of NHS Cheshire CCG, said: “The availability of two vaccines gives us all confidence of a return to something approaching normality in 2021. The NHS in Cheshire is pulling out all the stops to accelerate the vaccination programme.
“The NHS will contact you when it’s your turn for the vaccine. In the meantime, please continue protecting the NHS and saving lives by staying home and avoiding all non-essential travel.”
