St John’s Surgery at Terrington St John, near King’s Lynn, has today joined eight 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.

GP 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.

St John’s 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
  • Kirkley Mill Surgery, Lowestoft
  • Cringleford Surgery, Cringleford

More sites are set to go live in the coming days and weeks. 

Dr Imran Ahmed, Clinical Director for the Fens and Brecks PCN, said: “St John’s Surgery is really delighted to be playing a part in the biggest vaccination programme the NHS has ever seen. The surgery will be vaccinating patients from across a number of neighbouring practices, including Feltwell and Upwell.”

Lynne Self, Practice Manager at St John’s Surgery, said: “Primary care staff have worked incredibly hard to get the vaccinations up and running and we would like to say a massive thank you to them.”

Dr Anoop Dhesi, GP and clinical chair of NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “We want to thank our primary care staff who have been working tirelessly to ensure the vaccine rollout in Norfolk and Waveney goes as smoothly as possible. We’ve had some really fantastic feedback from patients and staff, which has been lovely to hear as everyone is working incredibly hard on this huge task.

“It is great to be able to offer the vaccine to more local people as we open up new clinics, but I would ask people please to be patient. GP practices will contact you when we can offer you a vaccine.

“To protect ourselves and our loved ones, it’s so important that we all keep following local tier guidelines - as well as washing our hands, wearing face coverings and staying two metres apart.”
