What to expect when you visit the Practice
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face to face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
Your GP practice is open and if you need to see the GP, please telephone us and we will arrange for you to speak to a GP or you can use the DoctorLink app (details below) or you can call NHS 111. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment.
Appointments are being delivered face to face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery please arrive wearing a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
If you are waiting for a check-up please be assured we will be in touch.

COVID-19 Vaccination programme
Over the last four months we have vaccinated thousands of patients and are so grateful to all of our staff and local volunteers whose hard work, support and dedication has enabled us to help deliver the vaccine to our patients who are most at risk of Covid-19.
The vaccine programme is now entering Phase 2 which will focus on cohorts 10 -12 (ages 18 – 49). Whilst we will continue to provide second doses to our patients who received their first dose through the practice, we have taken the decision to opt out of offering vaccination services for Phase 2 cohorts to enable us to focus on our day-to-day GP services.
Patients in cohorts 10 – 12 (ages 18-49) will be invited for their vaccine via a text or letter from the National Booking Service and will be able to book an appointment online via nhs.uk/covidvaccination or by calling 119 at one of the local Vaccination Centres, which includes (Grafton Centre, Chesterton Bowls Club amongst others).
Patients awaiting their second doses are asked not to contact the practice – we will contact you when it is the right time to book your appointment.
Any patient in cohort 1-9 who has not yet received their vaccine can also still book online via nhs.uk/covidvaccination or by calling 119.
Please continue to abide by all the rules of social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives, this still applies after you have received your vaccine.
