UPDATE : Wednesday 3rd March 2021
We will sadly be saying farewell to Dr Helen Plumpton on 31st March this year. Dr Plumpton will be leaving General Practice after 25 years and plans to spend more time working in memory assessment and dementia. We will all wish her well, but she will be greatly missed by all her colleagues and patients. Our practice GPs will continue to care for Dr Plumpton’s patients.
The Pandemic Alert Level is 4 as advised by our Chief Medical Officers.
Our services provided at this time remain unchanged whilst we all follow the National Restrictions
You can and should travel for hospital, GP and other medical appointments that are arranged with you , including upcoming Vaccination Clinics
Covid-19 Vaccination Campaign 2021
As per recent Government Guidelines, GP led vaccine centres continue to focus on Group 6 patients, those that are aged 16 - 65 and at clinical high risk, including those that have recentlybeen asked to shield.
Our practice team will be calling eligible patients for their first dose vaccine in the COVID-19 vaccine clinics and using SMS text messaging to offer online booking appointments.
NHS England are continuing to send invitations out via post, and now have started Group 7 which is people aged 60 and above. Please do book your appointment at a larger vaccine hubs if you can, this will speed up your appointment time.
As we have been asked to focus on group 6, we will not be inviting group 7 patients at the moment.
If you are in Group 5- aged 65 plus, to avoid delay, we suggest you also book through the larger vaccine hubs if you are able to. We can offer you an appointment at Sidley Vaccine site but this may be at a later date while we focus on the Clinically vulnerable.
Please find below the link to book your vaccine at a larger vaccine hub, or you can call 119.
