Welcome to Nethergreen Surgery.
All of our latest information about how we are delivering the COVID-19 vaccination is available here.
Unless you are over 70 and have not yet been contacted about your vaccination, please do not call the Surgery with enquiries about the vaccine. Please review this information and wait to be contacted.
We understand from the latest government guidance that our priority order for vaccinating patients is as follows.
- residents in a care home for older adults and their carers - Mostly complete.
- all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers - Mostly complete.
- all those 75 years of age and over - Mostly complete.
- all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals - Mostly complete.
- all those 65 years of age and over - Receiving letters to attend mass vaccination centre. (May contact the surgery if cannot attend the arena).
- all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality. (This group includes carers) - Commencing. Text message invitations sent.
- all those 60 years of age and over - Pending.
- all those 55 years of age and over - Pending.
- all those 50 years of age and over - Pending.
It is estimated that taken together, these groups represent around 99% of preventable mortality from COVID-19.
Thank you for your patience. We are vaccinating eligible patients as fast as our delivery schedule from the NHS allows.
Over 70, clinically extremely vulnerable and frontline health and social care worker
If you are over 70, clinically extremely vulnerable or a frontline health and social care worker and yet to have the vaccine yet for whatever reason, it’s not too late to come forward. You can now book a vaccination appointment online at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/ or call the free number on 119.
Additions to the clinically extremely vulnerable list
On 16 February, the government announced they were expanding the number of people being asked to shield, that is those identified as being clinically extremely vulnerable to serious complications from covid.
Rather than being place on the shielding list as a person that has one type of health condition, people are being asked to shield based on a combination of factors including underlying health conditions, ethnicity, age, weight and deprivation.
All people now identified as extremely clinically vulnerable will get a letter from the government asking them to shield explaining what they need to do. This means they will be advised to stay at home as much as possible and offered help such as for food or getting medicines where needed.
This data will be shared with GPs and they will be prioritised for being vaccinated. If newly added shielded patients haven’t yet had a vaccine, please do not contact your GP about the vaccine, they will contact you when they have supply available.
At risk adults aged 16-64 and the over 65s
From 15 February, people from the next two priority groups will start to be offered the covid jab.
The NHS will contact people in the 65 to 69 age group, and people at risk aged 16 to 64 with an underlying health condition.
GP led primary care networks will focus initially on those with an underlying health condition because of the relationship between general practice and those with long term conditions, and continuity of care.
People aged 65 to 69 will be invited by letter to book an appointment at a large vaccination centre such as Sheffield Arena. If you’re aged 65 to 69 and want to wait to be called by your primary care network or who have already received the jab you do not need to respond to the invitation.
This is the biggest vaccination programme the NHS has ever undertaken and these are the largest groups to vaccinate so far and will take time to contact everyone. In the meantime, please don’t call your GP to enquire about a vaccine, the NHS will contact you when you’re eligible and we have a supply of vaccines.
The NHS and council are compiling a list of carers based on who receives the carers allowance or those known to SCC, carers centre and their GP.
Once a list of unpaid carers has been pulled together by the council and NHS, all those who are eligible adult carers will be contacted via the national booking system to receive an invitation to book vaccination through at large vaccination centre such as Sheffield Arena.
Adult carers who are flagged on their GP systems will also be offered vaccination via a primary care network.
We ask people to not contact their GP with vaccine query.

The Friends and Family Test
Disabled Patients & Carers
If you or a family member have a disability please let us know. We are able to make reasonable adjustments to enable you to have the same level of access as other patients. This could involve longer appointments, appointments at specific times, alternative methods of booking appointments, home visits, large print documents etc.
We support the NHS Accessible Information Standard, and endeavour to identify, share and meet any of our patients’ special communication requirements. Please let us know if you have any such preferences. The website http://www.easyhealth.org.uk has a variety of useful leaflets in accessible formats.
We also have an on-site car park for blue-badge holders only. Please let reception know if you have any special requirements. Our ground floor is adapted to support patients with limited mobility, however access the the 1st story is by stairway only. We will always endeavour to see patients downstairs should this be an issue. Please let a receptionist know if you would like to be seen on the ground floor and we will be happy to accommodate you.
If you are a carer please let us know and we can add you to our carers' register. There is a great deal of support for carers available - We have a notice board in the surgery outlining local events and contacts.
