Covid-19 Update Post Announcement 20th December 2021
Following the Prime Minister’s recent announcement GP Practices have been asked to stand down all non-urgent work.
Please do not phone the surgery unless you have an urgent need. We will need to cancel some booked appointments to enable us to focus on the Government’s Covid booster vaccination target.
We are working hard to source staff and vaccine for this.
We will send out appointment invitation SMS messages to our patients with a mobile phone number, you can then click the link to book your appointment online. Please don't call surgery about the booster unless you have previously heard from us. Our website will carry updates as and when we get them.
You must be 91 days after the date of your 2nd vaccine to be eligible.
You can also book a vaccine through https://www.nhs.uk
Please be patient and be kind to our staff. Thank you.
As you will no doubt be aware; General Practice has come under intense criticism in the media over recent weeks.

Current Appointment Arrangements
During the Covid-19 Pandemic, all appointments are initially a telephone call, a GP will determine if you need to be seen face to face, if after a telephone consultation it is advised you need a face-to-face appointment, rest assured, you will be seen by a GP.
Please do not expect reception to book you a face-to-face appointment, the reception team are not being difficult, they are following instructions from the GP's.
If you are asked to come to surgery for a face to face appointment, please make sure you are wearing a face covering unless you are exempt for medical reasons. Thank you.
