Vaccinations and Boosters
Visiting us in 2023
We know things might still be a little different, but please remember that we here for you and doing our best to continue to protect our patients and our team. We are not currently running our drop-in clinic and instead suggest using Patient Triage. We recommend the NHS App to help check symptoms, order repeat prescriptions, use Patient Triage, access your notes and more, you can also try HANDI App for support for children.
How to help us keep our team and patient healthy:
- Only attend if you have a pre-booked appointment or have been requested to attend by a clinician
- All patients must still wear a face mask unless medically exempt
- Keep a little distance and continue to follow one way system in place
- Keep following the guidance on hand washing, sanitising and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The symptoms are similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu. Most people feel better within a few days or weeks of their first COVID-19 symptoms and make a full recovery within 12 weeks. For some people, it can be a more serious illness and their symptoms can last longer. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
