BIRKENHEAD GPs are making an urgent plea to contact elderly patients for their Covid jabs because their contact details are out of date.

Gladstone and Teehey Lane Medical Centres have completed the initial roll out of the Coronavirus vaccinations.

But staff at the surgeries have been unable to call some patients who have not updated their contact details.

Dr M Salahuddin, executive partner of the practice in Old Chester Road, said: “If you are over 70 years old and a patient of either Gladstone or Teehey Lane Medical Centres but have not yet been contacted, this may be because we do not have up-to-date contact details for you.

“Please urgently contact the relevant practice, either via their website or telephone number, to inform us of your current contact details.

“If you are outside this age group and think your contact details may not be up-to-date, you can check using online access.

“We thank all our staff and patients in these unprecedented times and offer our sincerest condolences to anyone who has been affected by the loss of a loved one.”
