    Breaking News:

    23/2/21 - National Booking Available for those aged 64 and above

    If you are aged 64 and above you can now book using the national booking service via this link or by phoning 119. This is not for an appointment at Milford War Memorial Hospital. We currently have limited vaccine supply so you may want to take this option rather than waiting to be offered an appointment with us.


    19/2/21 - Shielding update

    Have you received a letter to shield which you were not expecting?

    The QCovid system which has been used to identify additional high risk people. These letters have not come from your GP surgery. If you have any queries please visit COVID-19 Population Risk Assessment - NHS Digital which has a lot of detail about the tool which has been used. If this does not answer your question about the COVID-19 Population Risk Assessment, please email risk.strat.spl@nhs.net.

    15/2/21 - Some new updates:

    • Priority Groups - we have been advised to move onto group 6 (skipping group 5). Those in group 5 (those aged 65-69) will receive invites from the mass vaccination centres/pharmacies and we would advise taking up these offers. This means we can focus on those with underlying health problems aged 18-64. 
    • Health & Social Care workers  - you can now book online or by phone - more details here.
    • Second doses - we will start inviting people for second doses soon and these will likely be done in the 11th week after your first dose. You will be contacted by text or phone close to the time it is due.


    4/2/21 - New FAQ page added

    We have added a new page of Frequently Asked Questions. Please avoid phoning the surgery about the vaccination programme if possible as we need to maintain our normal services for patients. The British Society for Immunology have published "A guide to vaccinations for COVID-19" which is available here.


    28/1/21 - A couple of updates:

    • Second appointments - we are only booking first appointments at this time. Second appointments will be arranged closer to the time. At the moment we do not know what vaccine is arriving week to week.
    • Volunteer transport - Community First New Forest (01425 482773 or nftransport@cfirst.org.uk) may be able to assist with transport to vaccination appointments. There is a charge for petrol. You will need your appointment date and time before you phone.


    18/1/21 - Want to discuss an invitation from Bournemouth for vaccination?

    Please do not phone your surgery to discuss these letters which were not sent by us. We need to keep phone lines available for unwell patients. We plan to vaccinate all over 80's this week and are in the process of phoning those without appointments to book them in. Those under 80 and in Shielding groups are unlikely to be offered an appointment with us for at least a week so you should consider going to Bournemouth if you would like to.


    17/1/21 - Have you received an invitation for vaccination at the BIC in Bournemouth?

    It has come to our attention that some of our patients have received invitations to book their vaccinations in Bournemouth. We will be phoning and inviting all those aged over 80 and plan to vaccinate the whole of this population within the next 7 days at Milford. Please take this into account before responding to any written invite.

     

    14/1/21 - We are now booking appointments via text message.

    We are sending out booking links via text message to those with mobile phone numbers when they are eligible to book their injection. We will then be phoning those without mobile numbers and those who don't respond to the texts. More information is found on our Appointment Booking Page.

    Update 24/12/20:

    We have now delivered over 1100 first doses during the 21-23rd of December. These were mainly for people aged 80 and above but we also vaccinated some health and social care workers. We even had a rather special patient who you can read about here.
