Noticeboard

Covid-19 vaccines

Unless you are aged 80 and over and have not been contacted about having your first vaccine, please DO NOT contact your GP for a COVID-19 vaccine.

The NHS is prioritising vaccinating people who experts have agreed will benefit the most. We will let you know when it is your turn. Please see here for advice.

If you are aged 80 and over, and have not been contacted about a first vaccination please let us know. If you are aged 80 and over and housebound we have had to wait until we had the right vaccine, the right procedures and processes, so we have only recently started visiting homes - however there is no harm in ringing us to check we have you on our list. 

There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk)

_______________________________________________________________________________

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.

Teaching practicetwo_female_medical_students_2

This is a teaching practice and medical and nursing students sometimes sit in with the practice doctors and nurses. You will always be asked if you mind their presence at your consultation and if you don't want a student to be present please tell our reception staff.

You may also be asked to consent to your consultation being videoed as part of the training process. You can choose not to participate or ask that the video be turned off. Intimate examinations will not be videoed. All videos are confidential and will only be used in training and will be securely erased after use. Your help in training tomorrow's doctors is greatly valued.
