Get your Covid-19 vaccine today 

We urge everyone aged 12 and over who has not yet had their first, second or booster vaccine to book on the national booking system (or call 119) or find a walk-in site. 

Vaccination is the best protection we have against Covid-19 (including the Omicron variant), serious illness and hospitalisation. 

There is comprehensive information on the over 100 vaccination sites in north east London, guidance, and answers to questions about the vaccine here. 

Important Information

  • Do you have a new continuous cough?
  • Do you have a high temperature or fever?

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.
