Urgent Message for Covid vaccination bookings
It is important to keep our phone lines free so that people who need to can access our services.
All those in priority group 1-4 should have now received their 1st Covid-19 vaccination. If you fall into one of these priority groups & have NOT yet been contacted regarding your vaccine please contact your relevant vaccination team (as outlined below).
*Clinically Vulnerable – Those who have been in receipt of a shielding letter since March 2020.
We appreciate that people are anxious and want to receive their vaccinations and we are working closely with our partners to vaccinate all of these priority groups. We will begin vaccinating those aged 65 – 69 at the surgery from the 22nd February 2020. We have limited delivery of vaccines weekly and you will be invited via letter, text or telephone call. We ask that you please do not contact the surgery regarding the COVID vaccine as we guarantee that you will not be missed.
Thank you for your understanding. It is important to note that the groups above are also being vaccinated concurrently so we can vaccinate as much of our population as we can. Please be patient and wait to be contacted and we will get to you.

Ages 80+ (Phase 2) – 91% vaccinated,
Ages 75+ (Phase 3) – 92% vaccinated

Advice for those who have symptoms of Covid-19
The latest advice is that people no longer need to contact NHS 111 if they think they may have contracted Novel Coronavirus. People with fever or persistent cough should stay at home for seven days if they live alone, or 14 days if they live with others. Anyone who lives with someone displaying Coronavirus symptoms should also stay at home for 14 days. They should not attend the GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
They should only contact NHS 111 if they feel they cannot cope with their symptoms at home, their condition gets worse, or their symptoms do not get better after seven days.
You can help stop the spread of Novel Coronavirus by ensuring you practice good hygiene. Cough and sneeze into a tissue, bin it and immediately wash your hands with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds.
