Covid-19 Vaccination Update 11/02/2021


The Primary Care Network is now starting to receive more regular deliveries of the cvoid-19 vaccine


For those cohorts who are eligible, you may receive a text message with a link to book your appointment. Some patients have understandably been wary of this being a scam, as there have been various messages circulating from unscrupulous sources.


To reassure our patients, the link within the text will read: book.nhs.me/ [and then a unique reference]. This is perfectly legitimate and is a quick a convenient way of choosing a suitable appointment time, whilst reducing the impact on our phone lines.


If no appointments are available when you click the link, please check back as clinics are being added as soon as the delivery quantity has been confirmed.

For those patients without a mobile phone number, we will call you when appointments are available.

If we don't have your mobile number but you have one, please call us so we can update our records.

The following groups in Red are now able to book their COVID vaccination via our reception team;

1.     Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers;

2.     All those 80 years of age and over.

3.     All those 75 years of age and over;

4.     All those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals* (i.e. shielding patients);

5.     All those 65 years of age and over;


The following cohorts will be contacted when they become eligible:


6.     All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality;

7.     All those 60 years of age and over;

8.     All those 55 years of age and over;

9.     All those 50 years of age and over.


*Please be aware that shielding patients are not considered as housebound and are advised to still attend medical appointments, which includes covid vaccination appointments.


For those of you who are a little unsure about Primary Care Networks it is just a broad name for 9 GP practices in Preston who work closely together on projects - if you're reading this page, you are more than likely to be a patient of one of the practices The practices who make up the PCN are;

England Lockdown January 2021

Following the prime ministers announcement England has been placed in a national lockdown. Please see the poster below for guidance. 


Patient Newsletter
October - December 2020
Please click on the link below to be taken to our latest patient newsletter 



The NHS COVID-19 App is part of the large scale coronavirus (COVID-19) testing and contact tracing programme and will be used, alongside traditional contact tracing, to notify users if they come into contact with someone who later tests positive for coronavirus – helping to keep us all safer. The NHS COVID-19 App alerts people at risk of coronavirus, asking them to isolate before they potentially pass the virus on to others as well as providing local area alerts and QR venue check-in. The app will help the NHS understand if the virus is spreading in a particular area, and so local authorities can respond quickly to stop it spreading further and save lives. The app does this while protecting a user’s anonymity. Nobody, including the government, will know who or where a particular user is.

To find out more about the app and to download it please click on the link below

Wearing Face Coverings 

Please click on the links below to watch a short video from Xander, aged 8 for reassurance that face coverings are not intimidating and the wearing of face coverings is to help protect everyone.

 If a medical appointment has been arranged for you at Lane Ends Surgery please come prepared with your own face mask or face covering

We have a limited supply of face masks which we need to try and preserve for our team so we can carry on providing essential medical care to the patients that need it.

Thank you for your support 







Do not leave home, except to get a test.

Find out how to get a test at

nhs.uk/coronavirus or call 119




Mental Health Awareness 

It’s possible that people’s mental health may be adversely affected as a result of coronavirus (covid-19) isolation and lockdown

Social media can help us stay in touch with loved-ones, but often it’s good to have a chat on the phone or via a video call. Sometimes we can have a lot of priorities building up at home as we juggle home-work and home-school – it’s important to set aside some quality time to relax with family and housemates.

If you are struggling you can call The Samaritans on 116 123 for help and support.


Vaccinations During Covid-19 Outbreak - Don't delay 

During the current Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak there are lots of things that parents are having to think about. 

Vaccinations protect children from many serious illnesses. To make sure that your child is properly protected it is important that they still get their immunisations on time where possible. Health experts strongly advise that you make and keep your children's immunisation appointments as planned. The same advice applies to teenagers who are due their routine adolescent immunisations. 

The diseases that the vaccines protect against are very serious and therefore vaccination should not be delayed because of concerns about post-vaccination fever. We have also been made aware of concerns that parents will not know whether a fever following immunisations is due to their immunisations or to Covid-19

Indications to date suggest that Covid-19 causes mild diseases in infant and children. As has always been recommended, any infant with fever after vaccination should be monitored and if parents are concerned about their infant's health at any time, they should see advice from their GP or contact NHS 111.

If your children are due routine childhood immunisations, please book the required appointments by calling 01772 529260. Please do not attend if the family is in self-isolation. If the child or parent develops symptoms of a temperature of 37.8 or above or has a new continuous cough please call to cancel the appointment. 

Please telephone the surgery to speak to our nursing team if you require any more information. 


Blood Clinics

From Friday 27/03/2020 blood clinics will no longer be walk in clinics.

If you need to attend a blood clinic please contact the clinic directly and make an appointment.

NHS 111 - Isolation Note

A new online service has been lauched for any patients of the practice what are unable to work due to COVID-19. Through this new service you will be able to obtain an isolation note for your employer if directed by the NHS 111 online service.

In order to reduce the ever growing pressure on our GP surgery, you will be able to obtain the isolation note without consulting your surgery. 

In order to gain access to the isolation notes please use the link below. 


You will be asked to complete a few question and then the isolation note will be sent to your email address. If you do not have access to an email address, you are able to have the isolation note sent to a trusted family member or friend or alternatively it can be sent straight to your employer. 

You can also utilise the service on behalf of somebody else. 

 Image result for paperless prescriptions

 Please get in touch with the surgery to nominate a pharmacy or alternatively visit the nominated pharmacy itself. 


Patient Information

Due to changes in COVID-19 the internal front doors of the surgery will be closed to prevent risk to patients and staff.

This will mean patients who have been triaged by a Clinician and asked to visit the surgery will need to use the intercom system in the foyer. The intercom system should only be used for booked appointments or a clinical emergency.

Please use the repeat prescription forms in the foyer and place your requests in the outside box. If you haven’t already got a nominated pharmacy add this information to your request. All prescriptions where possible will be electronic to nominated pharmacies.

From 16/03/2020 the majority of appointments will initially be via a telephone call. Clinicians will complete this type of consultation and arrange a face to face appointment if necessary. Any pre-booked appointments will be contacted in due course. 



If you feel well return home and self-isolate for 7 days

If you feel unwell ring NHS 111 or visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus

Thank you for co-operation in these exceptional circumstances.


Raising a concern 

If you have a concern about the care you have received or that of a loved one, we recommend that you should always speak directly to the practice about this in the first instance. However, if you feel this is not possible or you do not wish to do so then you can raise a concern by contacting the CCGs’ customer care team via email to csrccg.customercare@nhs.net or call 01772 214602 or 01772 214601 - please note that calls to these numbers will be recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
