The Practice is nearing on completion of the over 70 population- IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN CONTACTED AND ARE OVER THE AGE OF 70 PLEASE CALL THE PRACTICE.

We are about to commence Cohort 5 set out by governement- this is the over 65's 

DO NOT WORRY IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN CONTACTED YET- The Practice have been issued with STRICT guidnace that we can only vaccinate patients in the cohorts set out by goverment and are unable to vaccinate any other age groups until the current cohort is complete. 

 

We are recieving very small deliveries and can only accomodate the appointments to match supply. We are assured that the deliveries will increase. THIS IS A NATIONAL ISSUE.
