Please be aware that medical students may be present in the Practice from time to time. We will inform you of this via a notice at reception and in the waiting room. If you do not wish to have contact with a medical student or have a medical student present at your consultation, please inform any member of the Practice team and we will respect your choice. 

 

 

Patient Notice:

Another Bank Holiday will soon be here, Thursday 2nd & Friday 3rd June. Please remember to order your medication in plenty of time. Thank you

 

 

The face mask rules have been confusing but the Doctors expect all who enter the surgery to still continue to wear a face mask please. Thank you

 

 

 

New System: 

The surgery is adopting a new system from Monday 19/4/21 which will allow the surgery to contact patients via their mobile phone. We will only be able to do this, if you have consented to receive sms messages. Patients can even respond to these messages. The aim of this is to support new ways of working and help reduce the number of telephone calls.  

 

 

Patient Update:

Some routine appointments are being booked for clinics such as blood test, blood pressure, smears, dressings, asthma clinics, medication reviews & CVD clinics. If you would like to book into any of these clinics, please ring reception after lunch time where possible.

If you wish to book to see a clinician, patients must ring on the day where their phone number will be taken,  and a clinician will ring them back in the first instance to action appropriately.  

If you are coming into the surgery because you have been given an appointment, we ask that you wear a face covering, use hand sanitiser and keep the 2-metre distance. Thank you.

  

 

  

Covid 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 through the NHS COVID Pass service from: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 
  •  the NHS website 
  •  119 - by requesting a paper letter

You will need to register to use the online services if you have not already. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified.

If you cannot access the online services, and you have had both doses of the vaccine, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel outside the UK in the near future,  and have had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take up to 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. Please do not contact the practice about your COVID-19 vaccination status unless you have been advised to by the 119 service.

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