Practice Services & COVID
COVID Vaccine Update:
We need to capture details of front line Health Care Workers such as Dentists, Pharmacists, Physio’s and Care Workers.
If you are a front line Health Care Worker, please update the Practice with your job role via:
- Engage Consult - from the Practice website homepage
- Please do not telephone the Practice with this information as the phone lines need to be kept available for clinically vulnerable patients to reach us.
This information will be provided to the appropriate teams (NHSE) who will contact you to book your appointment with you directly.
If you are a front line worker but not a Health Care Worker you do not meet the current Government criteria to receive a COVID vaccination at this time and further information will be provided once guidance has been received.
Take care & stay safe
