The NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases and has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
As the NHS is facing unprecedented challenges over the following weeks, we are having to make temporary changes to try and ensure we keep all our patients and staff safe. You can help us during this time by continuing to show respect for our staff who are dealing with a higher demand of phone calls, queries and appointments.
Health and social care worker seeking COVID vaccination update:
- We are prioritising frontline health and social care workers at the moment – Note: not all health and social care workers. If you are not frontline you will be asked to wait until later in the programme.
- If you are a Trust employee, then your Trust will contact you for the vaccination.
- If you are a social care worker in North Tyneside then your name should be on your Council’s list, you can double check this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
- If you're a dentist, community pharmacist or optometrist: the Practice should already have your details from the local dental, pharmaceutical or optical committee. However, if you want to check or if you are another type of worker (physio, podiatrist, audiologist, etc., whether private or NHS) please email firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, date of birth, NHS number, mobile number and place of work so you can be added to the list for vaccination at one of the local vaccination services.
- If you work outside North Tyneside please contact the CCG where you work.
