Covid-19 Vaccines

We urge everyone aged 21 and above who has not yet had their first vaccine to book on the national booking system or wait to get a text or letter to book at alternative sites. Anyone over 60 or who is clinical vulnerable (moderate risk) can book on the national site or call their GP. 

If you have had your first vaccine, please make sure you have the second vaccine to ensure maximum protection. If you don’t hear about your second vaccination and it is more than 77 days since your first vaccine, there’s information on how to get your second dose. 

There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions, including vaccination information for frontline health and social care staff and carers at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk)

We are sorry if our telephone lines are busy.

Our clinicians are communicating through the telephone or video link via CLINICAL TELEPHONE TRIAGE APPOINTMENTS, rather than face to face contact for our safety and yours. If they deem it clinically safe and appropriate, then you will be invited to the surgery for a face to face appointment.

If you have been invited to the surgery for  a face to face appointment with a clinician/nurse/phlebotomy please call the practice 020 7511 4466 when you arrive at the front gate/door  a member of staff will let you in to reception where you will have your temperature taken and will be asked to use the hand sanitiser.

Nurse appointments for child immunisations and other procedures will be pre-booked,  you will be sent a Covid-19 screen text message and any patients that have symptoms will be asked not to attend the surgery, and cancel the appointment. 

Face Covering Information

 

Face coverings are needed in NHS settings, including hospitals and primary or community care settings, such as GP surgeries. They are also advised to be worn in care homes.
