COVID 19 - Coronavirus
We are are here when you need us: things just might look a little different!
All patients who wish to see a doctor or a nurse, must first speak to a clinician by telephone. If the clinician feels like they need to see you face-to-face, they will arrange that with you directly.
Please note that the COVID-19 vaccination is not currently available from GP practices: the NHS is working very hard to make this available to patients, and when this is available, you will be contacted directly. We will post updates here on the website as soon as we recieve them.
Flu season 2020
After several car-park flu clinics, and two successful drive-through clinics, we have vaccinated nearly 1000 patients this year! We have now RUN OUT of vaccines for those UNDER 65 years old, but if you still want a vaccine, you can get it free of charge at a high street pharmacy or supermarket. We do have some vaccines left for those over 65 years, so if you still want your vaccine, do contact the surgery as soon as possible - they will be given on a first come first served basis until we run out.
As you may have heard the government have announced that patients aged between 50-64 years old will be eligible for a free flu vaccination from their GP Practice as part of the flu vaccination programme. We urge that if you fall under this eligible category to not contact us for an appointment. We will contact you in due course as we need time to plan and order the vaccinations.
We urge anyone who’s in a clinical risk group to take up the vaccination offer when they receive it. It will give them a much-needed layer of protection and there is absolutely no evidence that getting a flu vaccine increases the risk of getting Covid-19’
