Update as of Monday25th January 2022



Latest Covid Vaccination Update:

Given recent concerns about parents accessing children’s notes for Covid passes please see the following link where they can apply online if a child is over 12 without any access needed.

COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has now advised that pregnant women are more at risk of severe COVID-19 disease. They are reminding pregnant women to have their COVID-19 vaccines as soon as possible. They should not delay vaccination until after they have given birth. This is to protect them and their babies. In the UK, over 100,000 pregnant women have been vaccinated mainly with Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and they have a good safety profile.

These vaccines do not contain live coronavirus and cannot infect a pregnant woman or her unborn baby in the womb.

Evidence on COVID-19 vaccines is being continuously reviewed by the World Health Organization and the regulatory bodies in the UK, US, Canada and Europe.

Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are the preferred vaccines for pregnant women of any age who are coming for their first dose.

Anyone who has already started vaccination and is offered a second dose whilst pregnant, should have a second dose with the same vaccine unless they had a serious side effect after the first dose.


Bookings now open for 12-15s to get Second COVID Jab

On 20 December, the national booking service opened for 12-15-year olds to get their second COVID-19 jab. All eligible 12-15s can now book their all-important second jab online if they had their first dose more than twelve weeks ago, in line with updated guidance from the JCVI published on 29 November. Please encourage young people and their families to book in for either their first dose if they haven’t done so already and second dose as they become eligible online. Young people can get their vaccine through existing school immunisation services or by booking through the national booking service to attend a vaccination site outside of school hours.

I have an administrative request.

You can submit admin requests such as requesting a fit note (sick note) by visiting our website, go to the eConsult banner and select administrative requests

eConsult is a way to contact your own NHS GP practice online, for free, anywhere and anytime you have access to the internet, quickly and safely. eConsult is easy to use and will give your doctors all the information they need to triage and make sure every patient gets the care they need.

Choose the relevant section for your need or request.

a) I want help for my condition?

Your data is safe

Your health is private and we value this. All your medical information data goes straight to your GP practice. We delete any patient identifiable information as soon as your practice receives your eConsult, which is usually a matter of seconds. We don’t sell your data, and any data we do keep goes into improving the product for you and your doctors

The symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are usually mild, but some people can become very unwell.  The main symptoms of the virus is:-

 - high temperature. This means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

- new, continuous cough.  This means coughing a lot for more than an hour or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse then usual)

- loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.  This means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with Coronavirus have at lease one of these symptoms.

Use the 111 online Coronavirus service if you have any of the following:-

- High temperature

- new, continuous cough

- loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

NHS 111 will tell you what to do and help you get a test if you need one.  If you cannot use the online NHS 111, please try by phone.  Do not come into the surgery or go to a hospital or pharmacy.  Please help us and follow the government COVID-19 guidelines.

Staying at home if you have symptoms (self-isolation)

GP tip

If you are having to stay at home its best to have your own BP machine and oxygen monitor.  This monitor measures the amount of oxygen travelling around your body which is one of the key signs in COVID-19. Please contact us on 01322 334884 if you would like to use one for your home.

If your symptoms are mild you must not leave your home.  This is called self-isolation.  Anyone with symptoms must self-isolate for 7 days from when their symptoms started.  Anyone who does not have symptoms must self-isolate for 14 days from when the first person in your home started having symptoms.

Read more about self-isolation if you have symptoms of the Coronavirus

NHS 111 will tell you what to do and help you get a test if you need one.  If you cannot use the online NHS 111, please try by phone.  Do not come into the surgery or go to a hospital or pharmacy.  Please help us and follow the government COVID-19 guidelines.


Your GP practice is open and if you need to consult your GP, please ring us first on 01322 334884.  DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT.

If you are invited to come into the surgery for a face to face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering.  Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.  You can also call NHS 111.  For any patient requiring a COVID-19 test, please call 119 and follow the message.


GP’s are not required or in a position to provide exemption letters for patients who believe they should be exempt from wearing a face covering. 

Face masks or coverings are now mandatory in most public areas.

We understand that some patients will be anxious about wearing a mask especially those with certain medical conditions. 

The current guidance suggests there is no requirement for the public to provide medical evidence for exemption from wearing face masks therefore a self- declaration should be sufficient.

 Please go to the GOV.UK link below for more information on the use of face coverings.

For specific requirements in reference to public transport, shops or other areas where masks are required please contact those specific companies for further information.

Important Notice:

We have introduced a new efficient way providing follow up for patients after blood tests or scans or any hospital investigations.

Patient will be required to book a telephone consultation after their hospital investigations with the GP who requested it to maintain continuity of care with the doctor and prompt results.

On average blood results can take 10 days to 2 weeks, hospital scan results can take 2-4 weeks. Patients can book these telephone consultations after their blood test or scans.

Our reception staff will also be able to call you and book these appointments, please make sure we have your up to date contact numbers. You could do this via our online services or to visit the surgery to amend this.
