As you will be aware the Covid-19 rates of infection have increased to significant levels in our area.
At the same time we need to maximize our work of vaccinating patients with the Covid vaccine.
The NHS is very busy responding to the coronavirus pandemic either dealing with Covid related patients or administering Covid vaccinations to protect the population.
We have been advised to prioritise patients with the most urgent health needs.
If you have a health issue that isn’t urgent, advice is available on the NHS website www.nhs.uk or NHS app or you can speak to your local pharmacist.
You can also use e-consult (an online consultation form) which is available through this website. Your online form will be reviewed by a clinician and you’ll be contacted back with a text or telephone call with advice on what to do next or a request for further information.
If you are not sure what to do please contact the practice and we can advise you on how to get the help you need, as we are still very much here for you offering our care and support.
If you are invited to come to the practice for vaccinations or screening please attend these appointments.
www.nhs.uk is also available 24/7 for urgent health advice or by calling 111
