The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how a regular GP practice communicates and interacts with all its patients.

To help stay on top of things, we have provided  tips and info on how to fully utilise your myGP Connect system to help your practice with the current situation.

Our solutions include:

  • Messaging – to invite patients to get the jab
  • Appointment reminder customisation – to make sure your reminders work for you during the “new normal”
  • Barcode – scan a barcode of the patient’s NHS number in the app to speed up vaccination admin
  • Call/Recall – to simplify invite and self-service booking of vaccination appointments
  • myGP preGP – to sign-post patients to the many local NHS services and charities that can help them (additional purchase)

If you have activated the myGP app and would prefer to send your Coronavirus  Vaccination invite as a Call/Recall Campaign, follow the below link to find our step-by-step guide. This will give patients the option of booking their appointment directly from the seasonal flu invitation they have been sent. You can also run multiple campaigns using this feature at the same time. This will reduce the number of incoming calls into your practice and will also reduce the number of patients you need to contact to book their vaccination.
