How we will be contacting Patients to book Covid Vaccinations

I have been invited to book my Covid-19 vaccination through accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk. Is this legitimate?

 

The link you will receive is a legitimate invitation from your GP.  Accurx, is a software provider helping GP practices like ours to deliver the Covid-19 vaccination programme across the UK.

The link you will have received or will receive is sent on behalf of our GP practice and will enable you to book in to appointments available at your Local Vaccination Centre(s). You should feel confident accessing it.

accuBook is an NHS Digital assured appointment management solution, and this can be verified on their website:

Please do not worry if we are unable to contact you by Mobile Phone, we will still be contacting our Patients by landlines or Post

COVID-19 vaccination fraud warning issued

We are aware that some people are receiving suspicious calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination.

To protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals, remember the following points:

  • The vaccine is only available on the NHS for free to people in priority groups, and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. Anyone offering a paid-for vaccine is committing a crime.
  • The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine, and never ask for payment or for your bank details.
  • At the moment we are also not making house calls to deliver or discuss the vaccine. Anyone offering this now is committing a crime.

The health and care system is working together to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine to local people. We’re doing it in a way which means those who are most at risk will be invited to get their jab first.

Please be reassured that the NHS will get in touch when it’s your turn to be vaccinated.

Dr Karen Kirkham, local GP and Clinical lead for the Dorset COVID-19 vaccination programme, and Assistant Clinical Director of NHS Dorset CCG, said: “It’s really important that people are aware of how to protect themselves and their family members from fraud and follow the advice on how to do this.

“At the same time, we’d like to provide reassure to local people in Dorset that the NHS will be in touch when it’s your turn to be vaccinated. Please don’t contact us to seek a vaccine. We will contact you. We hope this is helpful. We’d like to thank people in Dorset for their continued support.”

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

Where the victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police online or by calling 101.

Red Hub Sites

During the current Covid-19 outbreak, patients experiencing certain symptoms (breathing issues and / or fever) and who have been telephone assessed by a GP to need a face to face examination will be called to one of our local 'Red Hubs'.

If you need to be seen, please ring your own practice who will add you to a list for triage, then they will give you a time to attend the hot site if needed.

Process if you attend the hot site:

Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your appointment time as parking may be limited.

When you arrive WAIT IN THE CAR and call 01202-673520 to inform reception:

  • If you are in your car you will be asked for your car registration, make and colour.
  • Please have this information available.

When it is your turn.

  • A member of staff - who will be wearing full protective equipment - will come to the car park to invite you in.
