Cringleford Surgery joins GP practice sites across Norfolk and Waveney in vaccinating patients against Covid-19

Cringleford Surgery, near Norwich, has today joined seven other GP practice sites across Norfolk and Waveney to begin vaccinating patients against Covid-19.

The GP sites will be acting as ‘primary care hubs’; vaccinating patients from their own practice as well as other neighbouring practices.

Those who are most at risk from Covid-19 are being prioritised first; members of the public who are over 80 years-old, care home workers and a small number for at risk frontline NHS staff.

Cringleford Surgery NHS staffGP practices work closely together with neighbouring practices in local groups called Primary Care Networks (PCNs). Each PCN will have a designated vaccination site, providing a good geographical spread of vaccination locations across Norfolk and Waveney.

Cringleford Surgery joins the following GP practice sites to begin vaccinations: Fakenham Medical Practice, Fakenham; St James Medical Practice, King’s Lynn; Lionwood Medical Practice, Norwich: Falkland Surgery, Bradwell: Swanton Morley Surgery, Swanton Morley: Thetford Healthy Living Centre, Thetford and Kirkley Mill Surgery, Lowestoft. More sites are set to go live in the coming days and weeks.

Dr Siobhan Rowe, Senior Partner at the Humbleyard Practice (which includes the Cringleford, Hethersett and Mulbarton surgeries), said: “We are so excited to be starting vaccinations to protect patients from Covid-19. This has been an amazing effort from all those involved in getting ready to roll out the vaccine.

“We will be vaccinating patients from across a number of neighbouring practices including the Humbleyard Practice sites and Wymondham and Hingham surgeries. People in the ‘at risk’ priority groups will be contacted to make an appointment no matter which practice they are registered with.

“This is an incredibly exciting but also a challenging time, so please do bear with us. Please be patient and wait until you are contacted.”
