Doddington Hospital

I visited Doddington Hospital today to see how their plans for a local vaccination centre are progressing. GPs from Fenland and South Fenland Primary Care Network will begin vaccinating patients there next week and aim to have 3,700 vaccines administered at five stations targeting care home residents and over 80s first, moving onto the over 75s from January 25, and over 70s and clinically extremely vulnerable in February. I met GP Simon Hambling and his team and it was great to see the dedication and professionalism of health care workers faced with the current challenges. As a member of the Government’s Vaccine Taskforce, I am reassured by the ambition and pace of the rollout plans. However, in line with my continued campaigning to ensure these type of services are available to constituents close to home, I’m delighted that vaccination centres are being provided locally without residents having to travel long distances. Vaccinations at Doddington will cater for patients from GP practices including George Clare Surgery, Priors Field Surgery, Fenland Group Practice, Cornerstone Practice, Ramsey Health Centre, Mercheford House Practice, and Riverside Practice. GP surgeries will remain open as normal for other issues. Patients will be contacted when it’s their turn to book vaccination appointment.

Other vaccination locations are already up and running in Wisbech and around Ely as well as Peterborough and Addenbrooke’s, and are starting next week in Whittlesey, Hinchingbrooke and Papworth. Some care home patients in Wisbech and Ely are being vaccinated at their care home. Patients’ vaccination location will depend on which surgery they are registered at.
