COVID-19 vaccine update (13.12.21)
We are working quickly to respond to the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday evening and to understand what this will mean in terms of patient eligibility. The lakeside clinic is working hard to create extra appointments over the next two weeks.
We ask you please not to phone the surgery to enquire about COVID vaccinations. At this time, we do not have any more information.
As soon as we know, more we will update our website.
COVID-19 vaccine update (29.06.21)
If you are over 18 years of age you can book your first PFIZER vaccine. Please take up the offer of this important vaccine when you are invited. We are now giving second vaccinations and patients will be invited between approximately 6-9 weeks after their first vaccine. If you have not heard and it is over 10 weeks please contact the surgery. Your second vaccine will be the same vaccine type as your first.
If you need help to book please contact the support team on 01276 707100.
COVID-19 vaccine update (06.01.21)
PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SURGERY TO ASK WHEN YOUR VACCINE WILL BE. WE WILL CONTACT YOU.
We are only notified 2 days before receiving vaccines in advance of clinics – so please expect a short notice call.
As a practice we are now underway towards getting our over 80 years of age population vaccinated.
Other age groups and high risk patients will then be called according to national guidance.
Thank you for helping us to help you.
Urgent requests only please (06.01.21)
Due to the recent surge in Covid-19 and the pressures on the NHS, we have been asked to stop any NON-ESSENTIAL work immediately. We will keep this under review.
We are asking that you ONLY call us or do an online consultation if you have an URGENT request. If it is a ROUTINE request, we will ask you to contact us when the pressures have reduced. We are still taking all prescription requests as normal. Please do continue to contact us for acute illnesses or urgent matters.
If you already have an appointment booked and it is class as non-urgent work the practice will contact you and advise that your appointment is postponed until we are able to restart these services again.
Thank you for your support.
COVID-19 update (13.03.2020)
As you will be are aware, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a new illness that is spreading across the UK. As such, Station Road Surgery are taking actions to protect our patients, our staff and our community by introducing a new telephone triage system for GP appointments. Our aim is to significantly reduce the footfall through our surgery in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, in line with national guidance.
All GP appointments will initially be on the telephone. If you have an appointment booked with a GP, please do not come to the surgery – please stay at home and the doctor will call you at the allocated time. The GP will do all they can to help you over the phone – however, should they feel the need to see you face to face for an examination, you will be invited to the surgery for review.
Nursing appointments will continue as planned but we ask you to consider the national guidance before visiting the practice https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
- a high temperature
- a new continuous cough
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
We thank you for your co-operation and understanding. As you are aware, the situation is evolving daily and we will keep you updated via our website and text messaging service.
