We are open and here to help you 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us is a little different at the moment.  This is to limit face to face contact where possible and help stop the spread of Coronavirus.

We are open and if you need to see a GP, please ring us on 01746 767121. 

Face to face appointments are available to all patients, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you.

In addition to face to face consultations we are where appropriate offering consultation over the phone or online.  This can be a convenient and flexible way to receive healthcare .

Please do not call for general advice about COVID-19, this information is readily available on the Public Health England website and changes frequently.

 

If you think you have COVID-19 DO NOT come to the Medical Practice, you should ring 119 to book a test or visit 111 online for advice on what to do.  If you think you have COVID-19 and need medical attention ring 111 or 999 if it becomes an emergency.

For up-to-date information on the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus, including the current situation in the UK and information about the virus and its symptoms visit the Public Health England website.

Coronavirus Vaccination

Covid-19 Vaccination Status:

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

  • the NHS website (from 17 May 2021)

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.

If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.

When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.

Covid-19 Vaccination Progress:

We continue to work tirelessly to deliver the vaccine and appreciate you patience and understanding during this difficult and challenging time.

Please be assured that when you do become eligible we will contact you via text message, telephone or letter. 

Please also follow us on Facebook for the latest updates.

Please only call the practice when you have been advised that you are eligible to book an appointment and please choose Option 0 to speak with the dedicated vaccination booking team. We continue to receive a very high number of calls at this time and request that you only call to book an appointment when advised to do so.

Thank you
