Coronavirus/COVID-19

COVID-19 Privacy Notice

We are trying to reduce as much face to face contact as possible to protect you and us. The phone lines will still be open Monday - Friday 08.00am- 18.30pm. We will still be able to arrange urgent and necessary assessments according to clinical need but these will be via a phone call first. Please do not come down to the surgery.

Please can we ask that patients wear a face covering before entering the practice.

To order your repeat prescription we ask that you use online access, post the prescription or use the post box on the front gates as opposed to handing it in at the reception desk.

Symptoms?

If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough or a high temperature or a loss of taste or smell please do not attend the practice. To be tested for coronavirus please call 119 or visit gov.uk to book a test.

Demonstrating your COVID-19 Vaccination Status

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.
 
If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after youve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.
 
Please do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COVID-19 Vaccine:

The Covid-19 vaccination programme has begun. When it is your turn to be vaccinated, the NHS will contact you. Please do not contact the NHS. See above links for further information and FAQs.

In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a few different health and care organisations including hospitals, GP practices, care homes and others are working together on the Covid-19 vaccination programme. This means when it is your turn to be vaccinated, this may not be at your GP practice. You will be told where to go for your appointment and how to book.
 
The priority list for phase one of the Covid-19 vaccination programme is:
 Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
 
 All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
 
 All those 75 years of age and over
 
 All those 70 years of age and over and people deemed to be clinically extremely vulnerable
 
 All those 65 years of age and over
 
 All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
 
 All those 60 years of age and over
 
 All those 55 years of age and over
 
Invitations for the local vaccination centres are being sent out on a phased basis. Please note that the booking information is patient specific and the details should not be passed on to anyone else except for them to book an appointment on your behalf.
 
The practice does not have access to the booking sites so please wait for your invitation letter. As we get more information we will update this page. Further information is also available here
 
We understand a lot of people want to be vaccinated and would like to reassure you this will happen. Please be patient and wait to be contacted.
 
For further information on why you are being asked to wait for your Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information on the GOV.UK website or this leaflet.
 
COVID-19 Vaccines for Other Frontline Professionals:
 
Advice from the Nottinghamshire Local Medical Committe: "It has come to our attention that several practices are receiving letters and messages from other frontline professionals to be coded on the GP system to get vaccinated. This is not within your remit to prioritise COVID vaccinations for other frontline professionals outside of general practice. They will need to take this up with their respective employer or professional representative body. If patients do have any queries they can contact the Nottinghamshire LMC on 0115 977 1347 or email office@nottslmc.co.uk"
