Coronavirus (COVID-19) Latest Information
The COVID-19 vaccine is free of charge on the NHS.
You need to have 2 doses of the vaccine and be able to attend 2 appointments. This is a long-term program and will take some time before all groups have been offered a vaccine.
We have now come to the end of our Over 70's cohort, other than those patients who are not available or have declined the vaccine. We have also delivered vaccinations to the majority of our housebound patients and we will continue to work hard to invite our next cohort of patients as soon as we are able.
You do not need to contact the surgery to ask about booking an appointment for your COVID-19 vaccine, we will get in touch with you when it’s your turn to be vaccinated.
Please inform the surgery of any changes to your contact details through online services or via email to ensure we can contact you when it is your turn.
Our team are currently continuing to deliver outstanding care to our patients whilst delivering the COVID vaccination clinics which are arranged at very short notice and we would like to thank you for your continued support and kind messages during these difficult and demanding times.
Please be assured that we will contact you when it’s your turn for the vaccine.
NHS 119 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Use this service if:
you think you might have coronavirus
in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus – see coronavirus advice for travelers and a list of high-risk countries on nhs.uk
you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
a high temperature
a new continuous cough
a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia)
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
DO NOT go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
For specific information and advice contact nhs.uk
We have temporarily removed the facility to book appointments online. This is a precautionary measure and we would ask patients to contact the surgery to book an appointment rather than coming in to make your appointment in person.
Thank you for your co-operation at this time.
