    If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call. the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you've completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.

    Information on the Coronavirus

    Patients must wear a mask at all times when in the building.
    ‘We will be carrying out more appointments over the telephone and by video during the Covid pandemic but GP’s may also ask patients to come in to be examined if deemed necessary. Most nurse routine appointments or annual reviews will be slowly re-introduced over the next few weeks. If you are asked to come to the surgery we would ask that you wear a mask or face covering. When you arrive you will find that our doors are locked; please ring the video doorbell and a receptionist will ask you for your details and let you into the building. Following the current Government advisory we have been advised to maintain a 2m distance from one another, so will find that there are fewer chairs spaced out in the waiting room to allow for this. Thank you all for your patience and understanding at this time. ’

Covid Vaccine Information

Oxford AstraZeneca Vaccine
New guidance has been issued for the use of the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

This follows further reviews by the independent regulator, the MHRA, and the Commission for Human Medicines, of a very small number of people in the UK who have developed a rare blood-clotting condition since having the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

The MHRA and Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations have emphasised that the risk of this condition is extremely small and that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks for the vast majority of people. They have recommended that:

  • Everyone who has had the AstraZeneca vaccine should still have a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, irrespective of age, unless they suffered any serious side effects after their first vaccination.
  • People aged 30 and over or who have a health condition that puts them at higher risk of severe Covid-19 disease should still be offered the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine. The benefits in protecting them against the serious consequences of COVID-19 outweigh any risk of this rare condition.
  • People aged 18-29 who do not have a health condition that puts them at higher risk of severe Covid-19 disease will be offered an alternative Covid-19 vaccine where available. (This has been recommended as a precaution as people under 30 are at less risk from Covid-19 and not because they are considered to be at particular risk of developing the rare blood clot.)
  • People under 30 can still choose to have the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine if this will mean they can be protected more quickly and they have been made aware of the guidance.
