Patients who are housebound

Patients identified with mobility issues that would normally prevent them attending clinic will be contacted by their HSCP with a date and time of appointment. •It is likely that they will also receive a letter offering an appointment at the Community Vaccination Centre. This is because not all information about their status is not shared with the National systems which generate the letters due to information governance regulations. •Appointments can be cancelled by contacting the national COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline(0800 030 8013) or by going on-line at Rearrange or opt-out of your coronavirus vaccination appointments
