When we are closed.....
Our next closure will be the 19th September 2022
The surgery is closed on normal Bank Holidays and approximately six afternoons per year for staff training. When the Surgery is closed, call NHS 111 for non-medical emergencies and 999 for medical emergencies (including chest pains and shortness of breath).
Please do not contact the surgery regarding Covid Boosters. NHS UK are contacting patients direct and inviting them to book into Covid booster vaccine centres. Please call 119 rather than the Practice if you don't receive your invitation when expected.
Covid Vaccination 3rd Dose for Immunosuppressed Cohort
The government has identified a group of patients who should receive a third dose of vaccine as part of their initial vaccination programme. These are patients with severe immunosuppression around the time of their first or second COVID-19 vaccine doses. These patients are currently being identified by their GPs and hospital consultants and will be contacted shortly to come forward.
More information on the specific medical condition associated with immunosuppression can be found at:
VACCINATION STATUS CERTIFICATION
From 17th May people in England who have had both vaccine doses will be able to demonstrate their status via the NHS App. Those without access to the app can request a letter from the NHS proving their vaccination status by calling 119. The Practice will refer queries from patients to the referred to sources above.
