THE COVID VACCINATION PROGRAMME
Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Vaccination Programme – Click here about the vaccine roll out in our area.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.
We are open and if you need to see a GP, please ring us on 0115 9382101. Our opening hours of 7.30 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday.
You can also call NHS 111.
If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured we will be in touch.
Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are asked to come into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
Covid-19 – The compulsory wearing of face covering in shops
The introduction of the requirement for people to wear face covering in shops is intended to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
There are certain groups of people who are exempt fro this requirement and they include:
Children under the age of 11
People with disabilities
those with breathing difficulties or
those who are travelling with someone who relies on lip reading.
These groups of people, their parents or guardians are able to indicate the reason, if required, as to why they are not wearing a face covering.
General practice is under considerable pressure as a direct result of the current challenges they are faced with with delivering a service to patients at the same time as coping with the consequences of this virus.
There is no requirement for general practice to issue letters for patients who are unable to wear face coverings, as the Government have clearly defined the exemptions of this requirement.
General practice needs to focus all its time and effort managing those who need their help and not be diverted from this by unnecessary tasks.
Many thanks for your help and support in this matter.
