COVID-19 Surgery Update (December 22nd, 2021)

Posted on December 22nd, 2021

You will be aware that GP surgeries across the UK have been asked to increase our work on the coronavirus vaccination programme in a bid to ensure every eligible patient receives a booster COVID-19 vaccination.

To support this goal, we have been instructed to focus only on urgent work in the run up to 31st December. This means with immediate effect, we ask that patients only contact the surgery with urgent medical matters.

Please be aware the surgery will be administering COVID-19 boosters for our eligible patients however this will now be in the New Year. More information will come via the practice website and Facebook page. Invitations for booster vaccination appointments will be sent by SMS/text message shortly so there is no need to contact the surgery at present regarding this.

The surgery’s workforce will be reduced between now and the 31st December 2021 as some staff have been diverted to help with the vaccination programme.  This does not mean we are closed – we will still be here to pick up urgent matters and ask that you call us if you need us.  When you speak to our reception team, please give them as much detail as possible to the team can prioritise accordingly, however if your medical matter can wait, please contact us in the New Year.

We ask for our patient’s support over the next few weeks – we understand that you may be frustrated by these changes and there may be concerns on how we will catch up on any paused work in the New Year.  Please be assured that we will continue to do the best we can for our patients.

We ask that you please do not direct your frustration at our staff; they are tired, stressed and working under tremendous pressures. Please be respectful and considerate.
