We will also operate a "Hot Seat" in the practice from 10am-2pm each day. If you come to the surgery and let reception know you're here for the flu jab and able to wait, one of our clinicians will be able to see you between patients without a prebooked appointment. Please note this  is unbooked and for vaccinations ONLY and so you will be seen between as clinicians are available.

Monkeypox Update - Aug 2022

The UKHSA, the organisation in England responsible for public health and infectious diseases, has been monitoring the number of cases and the spread of monkeypox since it was first detected in the UK.

 

It has advised that pre-exposure vaccination against monkeypox should now be offered to those at greatest risk of infection to help control the recent outbreak of the virus.

The NHS is following UKHSA guidance on prioritising those at greatest risk of exposure and local services are contacting people who are a priority for vaccination. If you are eligible for a monkeypox vaccine you will be contacted directly. You do not need to contact the NHS.

If you think you may have come into contact with someone who has monkeypox or who is feeling unwell or has symptoms that could be consistent with monkeypox infection, limit contact with others and contact your local sexual health clinic or telephone NHS111. Please do not visit A&E or your GP.

Find out more at Monkeypox - NHS (www.nhs.uk).

CHANGE TO OPENING HOURS

Please note that the practice closes each Monday Lunchtime 1-2pm. Urgent calls will still be taken by the Out of Hours service during this time. 

Half day closing for staff training. Once a month we close on a weekday afternoon for staff and team training. Upcoming dates will be notified below: 

 

Many thanks for your understanding
