Covid-19 Vaccination Programme
We would like to inform our patients that we are working alongside NHS England with regards to our patients receiving the Covid-19 vaccination. Please do not call the surgery to ask about the Covid-19 vaccine.
Our patients will hear in due course from NHS England. Thank you.
Due to Coronavirus we are asking patients to call the Surgery on 01753 653008 to book a telephone appointment. You may be seen after discussion with a doctor or nurse.We will NOT be booking appointments at the reception desk until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
Patients who attend the surgery are requested to wear face masks or face coverings - the exceptions are children under the age of 11, those with disabilities or those with breathing difficulties.
Do not leave your home if you have coronavirus symptoms.
Do not leave your home if you have either:
- a high temperature - this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough - this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss of sense of smell and taste
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.
Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Updated: Thursday 31st December 2020
We're excited and keen to vaccinate our patients and are eagerly awaiting a service specification to allow us to do so. The service currently being rolled out is for mass vaccination at scale - suitable to large corporate organisations. We have offered to provide support for this scheme in the meantime whilst we await the full GP vaccination scheme.
We will process repeat prescriptions over the telephone for patients over 70 years of age. (Updated 8th April 2020)
Prescription Requests - up to date information from NHS England.
We will not prescribe greater quantities than the normal pattern.
We will not prescribe early.
We will not prescribe more than 1 inhaler. We will not prescribe inhalers for patients who have not requested an inhaler for >12 months. You will require a telephone assessment with our respiratory nurse to enable us to safely prescribe for you.
We do not routinely prescribe paracetamol or antibiotics outside of our normal clinical practice.
All request will be processed electronically - please ensure that we have a nominated pharmacy to allow for electronic processing to the pharmacy for your collection. If you have online access, please request through this service. If you require a login, please contact us by telephone and we will provide details after completing data protection or alternatively, please put your prescription through the practice letter box at either surgery as usual. We will process all prescriptions via our usual procedure as this is to ensure stockpiling of medicines does not occur.
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advises you what to do. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
