Walk in Urine samples Coffee with Mates Online Appointments Cheshire and Merseyside residents urged to ‘give digital a go’ as part of new NHS campaign How you make a complaint about primary care services is changing on 1 July 2023 Carers Week 2023 Hypertension day – 17 May 2023 Coffee with Mates dates May – July ’23 Vaccination reminder in World Immunisation Week (24-30 April) Test of Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system at 3pm on Sunday 23rd April
The next phase of Covid-19 vaccination gets underway in Liverpool this week, with the following priority groups now eligible:
In the coming days, people aged 65 and over will receive a letter from the national NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service. They can use the link or phone number in this letter to book an appointment at a number of sites, including one of three Liverpool pharmacies, or the mass vaccination centre in St Helens.
Alternatively, if people aged 65 and over don’t wish to take up this option, they can also receive their vaccination at one of the 14 GP-led sites across Liverpool – people will be sent a text message or contacted by phone to let them know how to arrange this. They should not contact their own GP practice separately.
People aged 16-64 with underlying health conditions, and carers, will be contacted by their GP-led service (either by text message or phone) to invite them to make an appointment. They do not need to contact their own GP practice separately.
All vaccinations are by appointment only; no drop-in vaccinations are available and members of the public who arrive without a booking will not be vaccinated.
People over 70 and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable (shielding) were in the first four groups prioritised for vaccination. The majority of people in Liverpool within these groups have already received a first dose of the vaccine, however anyone who hasn’t should use the national booking system – or contact their GP practice – to arrange a vaccination as soon as possible.
The NHS is prioritising vaccinating those people who experts have agreed will benefit from it the most first, based on national guidelines from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The full guidance is available here.
The GP-led vaccination centres and regional vaccination centres are in addition to hospital hub sites, run by NHS trusts, which are currently focused on vaccinating the local health and social care workforce.

NHS Cheshire and Merseyside has launched a new campaign to increase awareness of online health services …
From 1 July 2023 the way members of the public make a complaint about primary care services to the commissioner is changing….
High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
