COVID-19 Vaccines - Update 07.01.21

We currently do not have any information of when we will receive the COVID-19 vaccinations in practice. We or NHS England will contact patients as soon as we have this. Everyone is working hard to ensure this happens as soon as possible so please do not contact the practice to query this.

Beware - COVID Vaccine scam text messages

Today we have been alerted to a highly believable scam which starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the vaccine and to click on the link in the text message.  The user is then led to a webpage, which looks very convincing and asks them to complete some details, in order for them to be able to apply for the vaccine.   The details asked for: Name Address Date of birth Proof of address Card payment details   With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue, as fraudsters continue to take advantage of the roll-out to some many people.   Please see our article on this website:  https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/news/fake-text-identifying-you-eligible-covid-19-vaccine

The importance of attending your smear appointment

During this busy time it is still important to keep attending your scheduled smear appointments. At the surgery we have noticed an increase in the number of patients not attending these. The practice is very busy and this is a waste of practice nurse time. It is also really important for patients to attend their smear appointments, for further information regarding the importance of smears please visit https://www.jostrust.org.uk/information/cervical-screening.

Flu Vaccine Update 01/12/2020

We are now taking bookings for the flu vaccines for patients aged 50 - 64. Please call the surgery to book into one of our flu clinics. Thank you.

  • You or your relatives have a history of violence or threatened violence or we believe that there is a real risk to the personal safety of practice staff or to the property of the practice.
  • You have previously been removed from the practice list, for example due to an irreconcilable breakdown in your relationship with a member of the practice team.
  • You are outside the practice boundary.

To complete your registration you MUST complete all parts of the registration form and return to the practice. It takes about 2 weeks to process your registration.

The receptionist will give you a Practice handbook giving details of the Practice and the services we offer. This also contains the opening times of our two surgeries and details of how to book an appointment.

If you have an existing chronic disease (diabetes, asthma etc.) you will need to book an appointment with one of our nurses.

Please note: If you are on any regular medication, you will need to book an appointment with one of the GPs before we can prescribe this for you. Please bring all your regular medication to the appointment.
