COVID-19 Vaccinations

Over the last 14 months the NHS has collectively delivered an incredible 117 million COVID-19 vaccine doses. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) recognises that there remains considerable uncertainty with regards to the likelihood, timing and severity of any potential future wave of COVID-19 in the UK.

We would like our patients to know that the Government’s strategy is to deliver the following from April 2022:

  • a spring dose for those most at risk (over 75’s, those severely immunosuppressed aged 12 and over and residents of older people’s care homes),
  • to offer vaccinations to 5-11 year olds
  • autumn boosters for those most vulnerable/elderly (although yet to be confirmed)

GP surgeries are not being asked to provide COVID-19 vaccinations from April 2022. We expect mass vaccination sites, such as Greendale, to continue providing COVID-19 vaccinations.

Ottery St Mary Medical Trust Fund

Established in 1990, the Ottery St Mary Medical Trust has enabled the Coleridge Medical Centre to remain at the cutting edge of general medical practice. 

As the demands on the NHS increase, the generosity of those who have donated to, fundraised for, or left a gift in their will to the Trust, has enabled the GP Partners at the Medical Centre to enhance the care provided to our patients. The Trust has invested the funds received in equipment and services which otherwise would not have been funded by the NHS.

The gifts the Trust receives are an acknowledgement of the care the practice delivers to the community. It is, therefore, fitting that the funds help us provide an even better service for Ottery St Mary and the surrounding villages.

The GP Partners, as Trustees, welcome and will consider all requests and suggestions for purchases that will benefit patients and users of the Medical Centre. The Trust is regulated by the Charity Commission and all purchases must meet the criteria set out in the Trust Deed.

Your donations have undoubtedly helped us provide reassurance, dignity and comfort to our patients, whilst potentially saving lives. From pre-birth to end of life, you have made the difference.
