‘Literally no patients’ at some NHS vaccination centres in Scotland after appointment letters glitch


Some NHS vaccination centres in Scotland have had no patients for a number of days after an apparent glitch in sending out appointment letters.

NHS Lothian on Friday last week said there was a delay to appointment letters, which Edinburgh Southern MSP Daniel Johnson told the Scottish Parliament had led to some vaccination centres having “literally no patients” on Monday and Tuesday.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told MSPs the Scottish government is investigating and said the issue could be down to the Royal Mail, as reported by The Scotsman.

The appointment problem is only thought to be be affecting some vaccination centres in the Lothians.

Mr Johnson said: “It became clear that there had been a major problem with the issuing of the blue letters, and that people between ages 60 to 65 in the Lothians had not been receiving their appointments.
