Message from the Riverside Medical Practice
We have received confirmation from Kent and Medway CCG that the Covid vaccination hub for patients registered with our practice will be Rochester Healthy Living Centre, Delce Road, Rochester.
Despite us and the CCG making strong representations to NHS England, we were unable to obtain approval to be designated as an Astra-Zeneca only site. We know that that will come as a disappointment to many local residents.
However, we are pleased that we have some certainty now in this matter and look forward to booking patients in, starting at the end of next week subject to vaccine supply.
GP-led vaccination centres such as the one at Rochester are staffed using existing staff from local practices. We will therefore be supplying staff on a rota basis. Whilst we will make every effort to maintain service levels in the practice, you may experience longer turnaround times on occasions. We would like to apologise in advance for this and will try and minimise the impact.
