You may have heard through national media reports that GPs will start COVID-19 vaccination of priority groups (over 80s) and that the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine has now been approved for use. Please note NHS staff will contact patients who have been identified as priority to be offered the vaccine first. Please do not contact your GP unless you have been contacted. If you have been sent an invitation, call 01392 211266 and select option 2 between 10am-12noon on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Please continue to adhere to the Hands, Face, Space measures that are helping us limit the transmission of the virus. Thank you.
Covid19 vaccinations – second dose appointments
If you attended for your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination in December and have a second dose appointment booked on either Friday 8th January or Saturday 9th January, you should still attend this appointment as originally booked. If you have a second dose appointment booked for Monday 11th January, this has been cancelled and you will be contacted to confirm this and provided with information on plans to rebook this appointment.
Flu vaccinations for 50-64 year olds
We now have flu appointments available for patients aged between 50-64. Please call our flu line on 211266 and select option 2 between the hours of 10am-12noon on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. If you have online services, you can book an appointment online using your SystmOnline account.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, you can only book telephone appointments with a GP online at the moment, not face-to-face GP appointments. Select an appropriate appointment time and then the GP will call you. Do not come into the surgery for a GP appointment booked online at this time.
Instead of booking an appointment online or calling us, you can use eConsult. To complete an eConsult, go to the eConsult website, answer questions related to your condition or query and submit your answers to the practice. You will be contacted with any necessary follow up e.g. if you need to make an appointment.
If you are asked to come into the surgery for an appointment, please wear a face covering.
Please refer to the Gov.uk website for self-isolation guidance if you have a potential or confirmed case of Coronavirus.
What are the rules on self-isolating?
Self-isolating means staying at home and not leaving it. Anyone who has either tested positive for coronavirus or shown symptoms should isolate themselves for at least 10 days, and those who show symptoms should arrange to get tested.
You can find more information about Coronavirus on our Information about Coronavirus page.
