Together we will beat cancer
Your GP practice is open, and we are operating in a safe way during the pandemic
•You should contact us if you notice a change that isn’t normal for you or if you have a symptom that you are worried about
•If you need to get in touch, we are ready to help you safely. You will be able to talk through your concerns on the phone or via a video consultation (if you need to be seen it will be in a non-COVID area/GP practice to add individual details on safety procedure)
•If needed, we can arrange tests in the safest way possible.
•If you need to see your GP or specialist, they will follow strict guidance on infection control to protect themselves and other patients. This might include wearing personal protective equipment and restricting the number of people allowed on the premises at any one time.
Whilst we’ve received information that all 50-64 year olds may be eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of plans to protect more people against seasonal flu, these free vaccinations will be subject to delivery later in the year.
This allows us (GP’s and community pharmacists) to focus on those who are in an at risk group, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first; if you are in this category you will be contacted.
If you are aged 50-64 and not in one of the at risk categories you will be made aware in the coming months if you will be able to attend for vaccination. If the programme is extended this is likely to be November or December.
Of course if you wish to access a vaccine prior to this date you can pay to have this at your local pharmacy as in previous years, otherwise please wait for more information.

Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
The surgery is accessible to disabled patients, including those in a wheelchair. A disabled persons toilet is also available.
