Covid Vaccinations Over Summer - 22/06/22
Thank you to all our patients who have taken up the Covid-19 vaccination at Lister House over the winter. We are now a hibernating vaccination site meaning we are not delivering Covid vaccines at present. This is allowing us to focus on our patients day to day needs.
As a hibernating vaccine site we may be asked to step up and deliver again in the future in response to any surge. If you have not started or completed your vaccination course yet you can still have yours at another vaccination site.
We would like to thank the team at Lister House Surgery and colleagues across Primary Care for their remarkable efforts over the autumn and winter period in delivering 2.4 million vaccines to date.
Have Your Say On Extended Access - 13/06/22
We're working together with other GP practices in our area to deliver extended services. We want to ensure that our extended services will meet the needs of our patients. Your voice matters to us and we would be grateful if you could take the time to complete this short survey.
Covid-19 Tests Fraudulent Text Message
We have been notified of a text scam that has been sent to patients posing as Lister House. The text could easily be mistaken as a legitimate notification as the the text may appear grouped with legitimate texts from us.
The message advises you that they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Omicron and that they must order a test kit using a link within the text. The link then asks for a payment of £0.99 for postage.
Please be vigilant to avoid providing personal information such as bank details to fraudsters. Lister House will never ask for bank details from our patients.
643 appointments = 158 hours wasted this month
643 appointments which equates to 158 hours of clinician time was wasted over April. Please cancel your appointment if you can't make it or no longer need it. We can then offer your appointment to someone who needs it.
Suspicious Covid-19 Passport Text Message
If you have received a suspicious text message asking for payment for a Covid Passport or saying that you have come into contact with someone who has omicron you do not need to report this matter to us. NHS Counter Fraud Activity are aware of these types of texts. The appropriate course of action is for you to report it to Action Fraud.
Please note - the NHS or Lister House Surgery will never contact you asking for payment for a Covid Passport. Do not click on any suspicious links or enter any payment details.
