Noticeboard

We are aware that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has recommended the extension of the Covid-19 vaccination programme to 16 and 17 year olds. We are awaiting further guidance from NHS England on when the programme will commence and how the vaccinations will be administered to this age group. Please do not contact your GP – eligible young people will be contacted when the programme commences to advise on the next steps.


On week commencing 9th of August 2021 we are sorry to be saying goodbye to Dr Vivek Patel, who is leaving for a new venture in Sheffield. We all wish him the best for the future. In the same week, we will be welcoming Dr Robert Webster as a new salaried GP to the Practice and look forward to working with him.


To book your Covid vaccination(s), you need to use the 119 service online or phone 119

Demonstrating COVID-19 status

Individuals in England who have had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine can now get proof of their vaccination details and demonstrate their COVID-19 status for international travel using the NHS COVID Pass.

There are 3 options to demonstrate COVID-19 status: via the NHS App (if you have full access to the App and are registered at a GP surgery), through NHS.UK and by letter from the 119 telephone service.
