CORONAVIRUS VACCINATION PROGRAMME
For all up to date information about the coronavirus vaccine, please click HERE
for the NHS INFORM website
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OUR PATIENTS AGED 80 AND OVER - We have had it confirmed that our first shipment of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine will arrive the week commencing Monday 18 January 2021. Once we have received these vaccines, we will immediately contact all of our non-housebound patients who are aged 80 and over to book you a date and time at our Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic which will be held at the practice next week.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) can cause a flu-like illness with fever, cough, shortness of breath and loss of a sense of smell and taste. If you have any concerns or questions, please follow this link to the NHS Inform website which is updated regularly as the situation changes.
As of Monday 23rd March, if you are unwell and worried about COVID-19 it is important that you consult NHS Inform and phone NHS24 on 111 as the first point of contact, not the GP practice. People who need to be seen will be offered appointments at dedicated local assessment centres, staffed and equipped to deal with COVID-19 infection.
There is also information about how to self-isolate, if this is reccommended, and general advice about how to reduce your chance of catching or passing on the virus, and a printable self-isolation certificate to use if your employer requires this.
If you feel unwell and think you might have coronavirus
DO NOT go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call NHS24 on 111, stay indoors and avoid contact with other people
