Update 04.04.2022

COVID-19 vaccinations for 5-11s

 The NHS is now offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all children aged 5-11, in line with the latest advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). As well as protecting children against serious COVID infection and Long COVID, this will reduce the risk of children passing on the infection to others.

 

The practice is currently not offering vaccinations for this age group, unless they are within one of the at-risk groups who will be invited, but you can book an appointment at a convenient community or pharmacy vaccination centre. Please book online at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or by calling 119, free of charge.

 

For further information on COVID-19 vaccinations for 5-11s please visit the NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group website.

Nurse Practitioners

The Practice currently has four Nurse Practitioners who have specialist skills and experience.

They all run their own clinics and can offer assessment and advice on minor illnesses, minor injuries, home care, and medication available from the chemist without a prescription, and a wide range of other medical issues.

Nurse practitioners are qualified experienced nurses, educated up to a Masters degree level, who work as independent, autonomous practitioners.

Nurse practitioners training enables them to:

  • Perform an in-depth clinical physical examination
  • Initiate investigations where necessary
  • Reach a diagnosis
  • Advise on treatments and where necessary prescribe medication for acute problems
  • Refer to other members of the healthcare team where appropriate or necessary.
