Response to COVID-19 Vaccine Oxford-AstraZeneca media reports

The UK Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, which is responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are acceptably safe, have said that evidence DOES NOT suggest that the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab is linked to blood clots.

People should still go and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so.

New Patient Registration

To register with the practice you must live within our practice area.

You can either hand in your medical card or fill in a form at reception.

All newly registered patients will be asked to make an appointment with our practice nurse or nursing assistant for a short health check. We ask that you bring a urine sample with you (a white topped bottle is available to collect at reception) and any medication that you take regularly. We regard this as important as it bridges the gap until we receive your medical records from your previous GP.

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.
