Welcome to Trent Valley Surgery
We are now operating a total triage system due to the current Coronavirus outbreak and have changed the way we make appointments. Please click here for more information.
We would like to say a massive thank all of our patients for their understanding and continuing support through this difficult time.
Please find us on Facebook @Trentvalleysurgery and follow us this is where we share important information about services, campaigns and general updates.
We are delighted to inform our patients that our vaccination delivery dates are confirmed and we are able to announce confirmed dates in which we will start to vaccinate. We will be working closely with The Glebe Practice throughout this.
The vaccination site will be John Coupland Hospital and our first confirmed vaccination dates will be Monday 18th Jan, Thursday 21st Jan & Sunday 24th Jan. This will be a rolling programme for the coming weeks and months delivering this vaccine.
We are only allocated a certain amount of vaccines each delivery which we unfortunately have no control over so we will be inviting patients and prioritising the over 80s, health and social care workers and patients in care homes/care home staff first as per national guidelines.
We understand the urgency everyone feels in receiving the vaccine although we need to ask for your support in not ringing the surgery and await a call from us as this will cause the reception staff to become overwhelmed. Please be assured as soon as you can have a vaccine allocated to you we will get you booked in via telephone so it is very important to ensure your telephone numbers are up to date. You can change this online, sending us an email or via phone.
Members of staff from the surgery will be needed at the vaccination hub which means you may experience changes within the surgery but we will do our upmost to ensure services run as normal under the circumstances.
This has been such a difficult time for all and we are very excited to start delivering this vaccine to our patients.
In the meantime stay safe, follow the guidance and once again thankyou for your patience and understanding.
