COVID-19 Vaccination information
We are no longer offering Covid-19 vaccinations to those under the age of 50. Patients will now need to book their vaccination online or by calling 119.
You will need to check that vaccines are being offered for your specific age, and this is updated on a regular basis.
If you are under 50 but in another eligible group, such as an unpaid carer or with a long-term condition, please call the practice to arrange your vaccination.

Coronavirus Update - 11.12.2020
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic we have had to implement changes in order to keep vital services running for you.
All patients will now be telephone triaged, and seen in the Practice only if deemed necessary by a clinician. This means that all online bookable appointments are suspended until further notice.
Prescription requests are not accepted over the telephone, we encourage those of you with online access to order online, and those without to either post your request or put it through our letterbox at the front of the surgery. We are unable to issue extra supplies of medication or issue medication early.
Routine chronic illness management appointments will be cancelled for the time being. We will endeavour to reintroduce these as telephone appointments in the future, if appropriate. We will contact you by telephone, text or letter to confirm this.
Thank you for your patience.
