Please note that if you need to discuss your vaccination appointment at Dewsbury Health Centre please call the GP surgery you are registered at and NOT Eightlands Surgery (unless you are an Eightlands patient). Although the vaccination centre is in Dewsbury Health Centre we are ONLY able to sort appointments for patients registered with us and cannot answer general queries.
Covid Vaccination - 1st May 2021
We have now sent invites to all patients aged between 40-50 years to book covid vaccinations. If you are within this age range and haven't received an invite please call us to book as soon as possible.
We have invited all eligible patients in cohorts 1-9 for the covid vaccination. If you have recieved a message to book your vaccination and have not yet done so, please contact us to book as soon as possible. If you are aged over 50 years and haven't yet recieved an invite please contact us book.
We are now using a booking system called 'AccuRx' which will send you a text to book your appointment. This text will come from a number that will show in your phone as 'Eightlands'. This message is personal to you and can be sent to a relative or friend to book on your behalf if you cannot do it from your phone. If you do not wish to have the vaccine, please follow the link and decline the vaccine - we will then update your medical record and stop contacting you to book.
In order for us to invite patients more quickly for the covid vaccination, it would help to have a mobile phone number on file. Please use the form online to update your contact details.
As a group of Gp’s in North Kirklees we have vaccinated 15,075 patients as of the 22nd of January. We would like to thank all primary care, Curo, CCG staff and also the wonderful volunteers that have made this happen. We would also like to thank our patients that have been very understanding and happy to attend appointments with very little notice.
As a practice, Eightlands Surgery has vaccinated;
100% of our care home patients.
89% of patients over the age of 80
66% of the top 4 priority list of the target population due by mid February as per government guidance.
Unfortunately we are only receiving 300 vaccines next week as such we plan to concentrate on the housebound patients. We shall update you once we have more information on our next delivery dates.
We can vaccinate over 10,000 patients a week working collaboratively with our 27 Gp practices over the 2 sites in Batley and Dewsbury. We will contact you with an appointment once we have the vaccine, please do not contact your GP surgeries.
