We will regularly update this post with any new changes or information we want to share with you regarding Covid 19 and how it may change our services.

*Please do not attend the Surgery unless you have an appointment*

Covid Vaccinations

Please wait to be contacted.

All of the information on how it will work can be found here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

Our GP-led local vaccination service is providing vaccinations to people in cohorts 1-9 and this will continue. We will not be providing a vaccination service for people aged 18 to 49 when they become eligible. If you are in this cohort, you will be able to get your vaccination at other local vaccination services including hospital hubs, community pharmacies and larger vaccination centres

What this means for you?

Cohorts 1-9

Includes those aged 50 and over, health and care workers, unpaid carers and those with a health condition that puts them at greater risk.

We are continuing to book in people in cohorts 1-9 who have not yet been vaccinated for their first dose and we will carry on doing this to make sure that no-one is left behind.

If you are eligible and haven’t had your first dose yet, please contact the practice now to make your appointment.

 

We will be able to give the second dose to everyone who has had their first dose of the vaccine with us. We will invite you for your second dose when this is due.

Cohorts 10-12

People aged 18 to 49 Vaccinations have been delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

If you are aged 18 to 49, you will be contacted by the NHS when it is your turn and you will be able to choose from a range of local vaccination services including community pharmacies, hospital hubs and vaccination centres <delete as applicable and add any detail of/links to local services> When your age group becomes eligible, you will be able to book your vaccine and choose a local service through the national booking service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by phoning 119.

Please do not contact us to get an appointment. Information on the vaccine is available on the NHS.UK website.

Face masks

It is compulsory that all patients are required to bring and wear a face mask when attending the Surgery. Your mask does not need to be a medical standard mask.

 

Prescriptions

Prescriptions can be ordered via online access, e-consult or email using our generic email address warccg.fearnheadcrossmc@nhs.net, prescriptions can also be posted in the letter box outside either Surgery.

 

Appointments

Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you

In addition to face-to-face consultations, we are offering consultations online or over the phone. This can be a convenient and flexible way to receive healthcare but if you would prefer to see a GP or healthcare professional in person then this can be arranged for you.

 

The Process of attending for a face to face appointment

There is an intercom system at both buildings that you will need to ring on arrival, a patient advisor will then speak to you through this before bringing you into the building – please only press the bell once otherwise we will not be able to hear you. 

  • Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
  • On arrival we will take your temperature and you will be advised of where to sit whilst you wait for your appointment.
  • Our waiting room is socially distanced to keep all staff and patients safe. 

 

Please be patient with our staff who are working hard at this time to still give you the service that you need, but who like you, are scared and worried and have families they are trying to protect at home.

Verbal abuse is not acceptable
