Vaccine Booster due? check here Ready Reckoner
As you will be aware the Omicron variant is highly transmissible, and numbers are increasing quickly. We already have some staff off self-isolating, even though everyone is triple vaccinated. We expect further staff absences over the coming weeks, and this could have a significant impact on our ability to answer the telephones as quickly as we would like. If possible, please use other methods to contact us for non-urgent medical issues including email, letter, NHS App, SystmOnline. We would aim to get back to you within 48 hours of receiving your query.
Thank you for all the lovely messages of support and patience. We continue to do our best under challenging circumstances. COVID is affecting our staffing levels due to staff and family sickness. We are still waiting on delivery dates for our flu vaccines, COVID vaccines and blood bottles. Therefore, we continue to offer mostly telephone calls, undertake urgent blood tests and see patients who need to be seen face-to-face as appropriate.
We have been happy to offer face to face appointments without telephone triage for the last few months, unfortunately due to COVID sickness in several of our doctors and their families, we are having to revert to telephone triage first in order to remain able to deliver a safe service. We will off course see you if deemed clinically necessary. This will be reviewed daily and we will update you as soon as we can.

If you do not have access to a smartphone but do have access to a computer you can still access our online services by coming into the surgery with photo identification. We will then give you a username and password to access the same online services as the NHS app. Currently they both have the same information and features, but in future the NHS app will have much more to offer than our services.
