Covid-19 vaccines 

We urge everyone aged 40 and above who has not yet had their first vaccine to book on the national booking system or wait to get a text or letter to book at alternative sites. Anyone over 60 or who is clinical vulnerable (moderate risk) can book on the national site or call their GP. 

If you have had your first vaccine, please make sure you have the second vaccine to ensure maximum protection. If you don’t hear about your second vaccination and it is more than 77 days since your first vaccine, there’s information on how to get your second dose. 

There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions, including vaccination information for frontline health and social care staff and carers at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk) 

Getting the help you need 

Most consultations are over the phone and via video. This is for everyone's safety. We will assess your situation and invite you into the practice if needed. 

We can arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care but please don't visit without an appointment. Appointments will be held in the best way to keep you safe from Covid.   

You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice - including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms. 

Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.  

Please help reduce infections, protect the NHS and keep each other safe by following the latest rules  

_______________________________________________________________________________

Please follow the government guidelines and do not come into the surgery, and make use of our online services or contact us by telephone.

If you are asked to come in, or have no access to any of the above means of contact then to help protect our patients and our staff we are asking that you attend alone or with no more than one other person to help you. On arrival you will be asked to speak to a member of staff through an internal window so that we can direct you most appropriately.
