Patients who have had both Covid-19 vaccine doses will be able to demonstrate their Covid-19 vaccination status via the NHS App from 17th May 2021. Those without access to the App can request a letter from the NHS by calling 119 from 17th May 2021.
We have had an increased number of patients ordering routine repeat medication via the AskMyGP platform. We generally try to assist with these requests when made but would prefer you to order via the SystemOnline platform (on the website as a link). You can also use the NHS app or Airmid app to do the same job.
The reason is that when you use AskMyGP, the request comes in as free text and our staff have to transcribe that against your repeat lists. Quite a few drugs have very similar names so this process is potentially open to error. When you order by ticking the box on the SystemOnline platform, the request is automated into our clinical system and simply requires approval. Hence there is much less margin for error/confusion and the request can be processed much quicker.
Many thanks for your support as ever.
The IMP group of GP Practices will continue to provide second vaccinations for all patients who had their first vaccination with them at the same site. However, IMP group of GP Practices will not be providing first vaccinations for the next cohorts – people aged under 50.
If you are aged under 50 and yet to have your first vaccination, you should wait to be called by the NHS. When it is your turn, you will be able to book in via the National Booking System website or by telephoning 119 and you can choose the location and date of your vaccination. Please do not contact the Practice.
Due to the Covid situation and staff absence, could we please ask that patients do not contact the surgery if necessary, until after 5 working days have elapsed since ordering their prescription.
Branch surgeries are closed until further notice. Please order in the usual way. If you would like your prescription delivered to you, please call the surgery after ordering.
