We are working with The Health Triangle Primary Care Network (PCN) to offer the vaccine to all our patients who are eligible. 

We have been told the order of priority that we are able to vaccinate in. www.gov.uk/covid-vaccine-priority-groups

Update 8th June 2021 - We are now contacting all patients aged over 18 years old. You may receive a text or a phone call from the practice. 

All eligible patients between 18yrs and 39yrs will receive the Pfizer vaccine

Those aged over 40yrs will receive either the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine or Pfizer vaccine as per the availability on the day.

Please see this news post for more information on this update.

The text link remains valid - if a convenient date is not showing then please keep trying as new clinics will be added.

If you are in cohorts 1 to 9 and are yet to have your first dose or second dose, please email baccg.ringmead.healthtriangle@nhs.net.

Click here for more information about what our text message looks like and how to decline the invitation.

There is up to date information about the vaccine here, it also includes information about contraindications (when it's not suitable to have the vaccination). 

Frimley Health have also produced a useful FAQ resource.

  • Unless we have asked you to contact us, we will be in touch to offer you the vaccine - please don't contact us as it will stop people getting through on the phone lines
  •  You will need two injections up to twelve weeks apart
  • The invite may come by text or by telephone. Some telephone calls are being made on our behalf by our PCN, so may come from a withheld or unfamiliar number
  • We will attempt to contact you multiple times
  • You are able to decline the vaccine, and we will record this on your notes, but you will be able to still get the vaccination if you wish

Are you a carer? Please contact our colleagues at www.signal4carers.org.uk to register for local support and information.

Our advice to you is to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Please do not call the surgery about the choice of vaccine. The vaccinator on the day will be able to guide you. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

We will keep this page, and our Facebook page updated as we get more information. 

Please use online booking as much as possible so our patients needing to contact us for urgent medical problems do not wait for long on the phone. If you do not have online access please go to our Online Access registration page of the website and send your completed form along with photographic ID via email to - ringmead.onlineservices@nhs.net so we can organise online access for you. Otherwise you can use the NHS App to prove your ID - please see their website for more information.

Telephone Lines

We have been experiencing extremely high call volumes in the last few months and we would like to apologise to all of you that have been trying to get through to us. These are unprecedented times and we have had to adapt our ways of working to keep you and our staff safe. This includes using digital technology, remote working and keeping the surgery front doors closed for now, but giving access to patients through the intercom only if essential. We are triaging all appointment requests by telephone first to maintain as low a risk as possible to patients and staff, as safety for all is our priority, this means that the telephone is going to be very busy such that there may be a delay in getting back to you; having your phone to hand is essential when we call. 

 In order to reduce queueing on the telephone, If your call is not urgent and can wait for a day or two, or is of an administrative nature, we recommend you submit an eConsult via our website which enables a clinical review and an outcome by the end of the next working day. In order to reduce telephone use, we also suggest the use of the NHS App or Patient Access which also enables you to see any test results, book appointments or indeed see your immunisations records. 

 Please be patient with our team on the front desk - they have been working extremely hard throughout the whole of this pandemic, doing the best possible to help you.
