Access to primary care
We are responding to a national critical incident to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Staff from our practice are now prioritising offering COVID-19 boosters to all adults by the end of the year.
Regrettably this means there will be a temporary disruption to our services, particularly affecting routine appointments until the new year. If you already have an appointment booked, please attend it, unless we tell you otherwise. Please do not turn up at the practice unless this has been agreed in advance. If you need to cancel your appointment, please let us know so we can offer it to someone else.
We will deal with urgent issues. If you feel you need to speak to us urgently, please contact us and we will assess your needs. However, there may be delays, so please bear with us.
Alternatively, please make use of other health services, including:
Your local community pharmacy who can give you lots of healthcare advice and support. Click here to find your nearest pharmacy or call 111.
NHS 111 helps patients get the right advice and treatment when they urgently need it. Call 111 or visit www.111.nhs.uk. Available 24/7, 365 days a year.
If you have a life-threatening emergency, call 999 or go to your nearest A&E.
Getting your COVID-19 booster NOW is the best way to protect your Christmas. Book online or call 119 today. If you don’t manage to book, keep trying, more appointments are becoming available daily. If your GP contacts you to book a COVID-19 booster, please book one. Please do not contact the practice.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
