5.10.2021 INVITATIONS FOR COVID BOOSTER CLINICS (PLUS FLU) VIA TEXT

Posted on October 5th, 2021

5.10.2021 INVITATIONS FOR COVID BOOSTER CLINICS (PLUS FLU) VIA TEXT
 
We are delighted to annouce that we will start inviting patients using the AccuRx texting system today and over the next coming weeks.
 
When we are ready to invite you, once we determine that you are due your booster 6 months after your second dose, you’ll receive a text with a link that looks something like this:
 
accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk/r/uniquecode
 
Please be patient we will be texting patients in small groups so don’t worry if you have not had a text and please try not to call us at this busy time. We will make sure we invite you all.
 
Once you get your text, you will be asked to imput your date of birth and then asked to select a location.
 
There will be three delivery sites offered:
 
Ludlow Mascall Centre.
 
Physio Department, Ludlow Hospital and
 
Health and Wellbeing Centre in Church Stretton
 
You are welcome to choose a day or site most convenient for you however we would recommend that most Ludlow Portcullis patients book in the Ludlow Mascall Centre as this centre is run by Portcullis Staff and has the following advantages:
 
  • Portcullis patients can get both the Covid Booster Vaccine and Flu jab together in this centre only.
  • We are also taking the opportunity of giving you a questionnaire to fill in as you leave, this questionnaire has useful information that we need from our patients. Thankyou for filling in the questionnaire and handing it in to the practice or emailing it to us at a later date.
  • Patients from other practices such as Station Drive, Bishops Castle, Craven Arms, Church Stretton, The Meadows Clun patients can book in this centre but we can only give them the Covid Booster vaccine alone, they will need to book their flu vaccine with their own practice in their own local centre.
 
For full instructions on how to book using AccuRx please read the following instructions we have prepared on our website

If you have any problems using the system please send us an email to portcullis.management@nhs.net and we will get back to you.
 
Please try and avoid calling the practice at this busy time.
