Final two GP vaccination centres open in Milton Keynes

Date: 16/01/2021 | Category: CCG News

Today (16 January) two more Primary Care Networks (PCN) neighbouring GP surgeries run by family doctors and their teams, open their vaccination centres in the Milton Keynes area.

Watling Street PCN surgeries will be delivering jabs to invited patients at the Whitehouse Medical Centre, Brahaman Way, Milton Keynes, whilst The Bridge PCN surgeries will be contacting people to attend at Newport Pagnell Medical Centre, Queens Avenue, Newport Pagnell.

Fully trained vaccinators will be administering the jab at both medical centres. To ensure there is plenty of room for social distancing when waiting it is important that people only attend if they have received an invite from their GP and arrive at the time stated. We need to keep everyone safe while they wait.

This will mean that Milton Keynes GP surgeries will all be live and delivering vaccines to the highest priority patients, through their agreed vaccination centres.

Dr Sarah Whiteman, the Medical Director and putative Chair of BLMK CCGs, said: “Delivery of the biggest ever NHS vaccination programme has been a huge undertaking so I am thrilled that we can now say we are administering vaccines to the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes footprint that we cover.

“I can appreciate that local people will be keen to get their jab as soon as possible, but we would ask that patients do not contact their practices at this time.

“GPs are working through their lists and making appointments according to the criteria provided by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.”
