Covid Vaccination Scams

“Warning of vaccine scam phone calls

Scammers are using the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine to try to con people out of money, a council has warned.

Wirral Council told people to be on their guard after residents of New Ferry were prompted to book non-existent “vaccine appointments” in a recorded phone message.

Those receiving the calls are then asked to confirm by pressing a button on their phone – which results in them being billed by their provider.

Elderly people have been targeted by the calls, the council said.”

Important message

“The NHS in London is very busy due to rising coronavirus infection rates, but we’ll help you get urgent care when you need it.

“GPs are providing more appointments, including evenings and weekends, for patients with urgent health needs. Contact your practice, or check their website, and they will tell you how to arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care.

“You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice - including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms.

“Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.

“Thank you to Londoners for following the Tier 4 rules, which will help reduce infections, protect the NHS and keep each other safe.”

AskmyGP instructions - Registering for the first time and making a medical request

Getting clinical and administrative help at the Nightingale Practice is going to get quicker and easier, using your smartphone, tablet or computer anytime anywhere.

This is all thanks to your feedback.

 From the middle of August 2020 we are changing our appointment system.

 We hope that this new system will improve your experience of the practice and as always we would welcome your feedback online (care opinion) or why not join our virtual patient group

Why a new system?

Feedback from patients has always been very positive when they have spoken to or seen a healthcare professional however, trying to get through to the surgery by phone proved to be constantly difficult.

Our new system allows patients to get the right help from the practice team through making a request on-line, freeing up the phones for those patients who are the most vulnerable and find it most difficult to get through to us.
