We are pleased to announce that today we completed our housebound “Winter Vaccine Delivery Service 2022”
Over 4 days we completed almost 100 GP home visits for those housebound patients wanting winter vaccination.
We ran this as a GP pilot this year. We wanted to make sure that our housebound patients were offered winter vaccines (flu and covid 19 booster) as early in the season as possible. The pilot meant that we could give both vaccines at once and carers/relatives were also offered vaccines on the same visit. The GP visit also enabled other questions and concerns to be addressed. It was a very special opportunity to see our entire housebound patient list over just a few days and feedback has been very positive.
We have now vaccinated all of our listed housebound patients: possibly the first practice in Brent to have done this.
*Please let us know if you feel you have been missed as our housebound list is always changing.
