COVID-19

VISITING YOUR GP SURGERY


PLEASE WEAR FACE COVERINGS

COVID-19 PROTECTIONS ARE STILL IN PLACE IN THIS SURGERY

In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings. 

Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so – unless exempt – is key to preventing spread of infection.


CONTINUE TO RESPECT (2M) SOCIAL DISTANCING


TEST AND ISOLATE IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS

If you have symptoms you must get a PCR test as soon as possible & before visiting your GP. Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used to confirm infection. 

It’s vital that you and anyone in your household isolate until you receive your test result, and for 10 days thereafter if the result is positive


WASH/SANITISE HANDS REGULARLY


COVID Booster Vaccination

Please do not contact the GP surgery regarding your Covid Booster.

The NHS will contact you when you are due your booster vaccination.  Alternatively if it has been 6 months since your second Covid vaccination and are aged 50 and over or have a chronic illness then please click the below link to book your Covid vaccination.

Health and Social Care Workers can now book their boosters through the National Booking Service 

Health and social care workers now have the option to book their COVID-19 booster vaccinations through the National Booking Service or by ringing 119. 

They may still be able to access workplace-based vaccinations through their employer, so we encourage all staff to check what if any arrangements their employer has in place in the first instance. 

As part of the booking process, staff will need to self-declare they are a frontline health or social care worker. They will also need to declare verbally when checking in at the vaccination site that:

    • they are a frontline health or social care worker, as identified by the Green Book;
    • the type of role/work they do; and
    • the name of their employer.

 They are asked to provide as proof of employment as an eligible health or social care worker using one of the following (further advice will be available when they make a booking):

    • A workplace photo ID;
    • A recent letter from their employer (past three months) or
    • A recent payslip which shows their employer (past three months). 

They will only be vaccinated if one of these forms of official proof is presented. These ID requirements also apply to individuals who are vaccinated via local booking services or a walk-in clinic. 

Booster vaccinations can be administered no earlier than six months after completion of the primary vaccine course. Staff in eligible groups will be encouraged to complete the primary course of the COVID-19 vaccine if they haven’t done so already
