COVID VACCINATION SERVICE AT ALTRINCHAM HEALTH AND WELLBEING CENTRE: INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS

For those coming for COVID-19 vaccinations at the Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre, please read the following patient information

Altrincham Healthcare Alliance Primary Care Network which includes Altrincham Medical Practice, Park Medical Practice, Shay Lane Medical Centre (Drs Kelman, Cranston, Naylor, Pathak and Haslam) and St Johns Medical Centre is continuing to roll-out COVID-19 vaccinations from Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre, 31-33 Market Street, Altrincham WA14 1PF

Please be patient: you will be contacted by your GP practice and invited for an appointment. As we are provided with the vaccine, we will be in contact with our patients.

How to get to Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre:

The pedestrian entrance is on Market Street. Please see directions

Car parking: the free underground car park can be accessed from Greenwood Street and is being made available to Blue Badge holders only. A lift connects the car park to the medical centre on the first floor.

Car parking system at Greenwood Street: take a ticket to open the barrier to the car park. Follow the signs for patient/disabled parking. Access from the car park to St Johns Medical Centre is via stairs or lift (press ‘1’ for first floor). Following your appointment, your parking ticket will be date/time stamped at the GP reception. Make your way to the ground floor ‘welcome desk’ via stairs or lift (press ‘0’ for ground floor) where you need to exchange your stamped ticket with a validated exit ticket to operate the car park exit barrier.

Patients receiving the COVID-19 vaccination are also able to access free parking for up to one hour at the Stamford Quarter car park (M&S). Having obtained a coin token on entering the car park, this will need to be authorised after your appointment at the ground floor ‘welcome desk’ at Altrincham Health and Wellbeing Centre to enable your exit.

The British Red Cross is able to assist those who may require transport to/from home. If you wish to use this service please contact 07912 080915.
