Non-urgent advice: COVID-19 Vaccination Update
If you have received your first COVID-19 vaccination dose the second will be around 7-8 weeks later. We will contact you shortly before it is due (ideally by text message) to book your second appointment.
Booster doses have now started. These are available to all those aged over 50 and those over 18 with underlying medical problems. Booster doses can only be given once it is 6 months after your second original COVID vaccine dose.
Non-urgent advice: COVID-19 Notice – Update 12/4/21
As advised by NHS England we are still running a total triage system and trying to deal with the vast majority of issues over the phone or by video consultation. If you need to be seen at the surgery then this can be arranged but we need to reduce the number of patients attending the surgery to reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus.
