Noticeboard

Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme - The NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.  All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.  You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months. The NHS are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.  You can also attend a local walk in clinic - click on this link to see the latest clinic venues and times.  

We will be working with all of our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.  All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.  In terms of any planned appointments with the doctors, nurses and other clinical staff at the surgery, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.

Blood Tests

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are not providing our walk in service for blood tests.  If one of the doctors/nurses need you to have a blood test, you will be asked to book an appointment.  This is so we can manage the number of patients in the building at one time safely.

You will be required to wear a face mask/covering when you come for a blood test.  There is a short supply of face masks and we would be grateful if you could attend your appointment prepared with your own face mask.

Thank you for your co-operation.


New Phlebotomy (Blood Taking) Service

From 03 August 2020 we will providing a new clinic times for our blood taking clinics.  The clinics will run on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings and these will be by APPOINTMENT ONLY.  Please contact our surgery to arrange an appointment.

We will no longer be providing a walk in service.

You will be required to wear a face mask/covering when you come for a blood test.  There is a short supply of face masks and we would be grateful if you could attend your appointment prepared with your own face mask.

Thank you for your co-operation.
