COVID Vaccination Programme
The practice will soon be contacting eligible patients to book in for their Covid vaccination. Patients will be contacted in order of clinical need as set by national guidance (see here). In order to keep the phone lines free for people with urgent medical problems please DO NOT contact the surgery about the vaccination until we have asked you to book your appointment. Regular updates will be posted here on the website. If you read that you fall in to a group who have been invited to make an appointment, but you have not been contacted, then you should of course call the practice to let us know.
If you have been invited to book your COVID vaccine appointment you MUST read the COVID vaccine information available here.
Blood Tests During the Pandemic
The practice continues to offer pre-bookable blood test appointments to all of our patients; these can be booked by calling the practice. During the pandemic we are regrettably unable to offer a walk-in blood clinic as it would not be possible to do this and maintain social distancing. Patients may be able to obtain an earlier appointment by arranging to have their blood taken at an alternative local venue.
These clinics can be booked by calling: 0300 300 1003
IF YOU ARE BETWEEN 50-64, PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY TO BOOK YOUR INFLUENZA VACCINE

Social prescribing is a means of enabling GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. Social prescribing is person-centred. One of the great strengths of social prescribing is the time available to patients to discuss their issues; typical sessions last 30-60 minutes. This length of time combined with the open ended nature of social prescribing has created a source of support that is much needed by the majority of our patients & GP’s, which can then grow into a holistic care package for patients. More details can be found under the Services Section of our Website
In order for us to improve the services we offer, you may be asked after each appointment with the practice to complete our questionnaire. There are just two questions which will only take a few moments of your time.
