October 2021: We are currently vaccinating our patients who are aged 80 and above with the COVID vaccine booster.
Immunocompromised groups should be vaccinated through their hospital specialist. Hospitals will identify the people who need an additional dose. You do not need to register or contact anyone. Please do not contact our practice by phone, this is in order to keep our phone lines clear for sick or unwell people trying to contact the practice by phone.
Flu vaccine: We are running weekly flu vaccine clinics for those aged >65 and other eligible groups. Please ring reception to book in for the regular flu vaccine. Children’s flu vaccine clinics will begin the week of Monday 25th October.

After referral, your GP does not know when your test will take place. It may take several days. Please do not contact your GP for COVID-19 test results. Following your test you will be contacted by the testing system by text if your test is negative. If positive you will be contacted by public health for contact tracing. You may be waiting a number of days for your test result. Please do not make multiple calls to the practice and keep the phone lines available for patients who are seeking help with symptoms.
