Due to the 97% increase in Covid cases in hospitals it has been recommended by NHS England that we return to wearing face masks in GP practices. Therefore, please wear a mask when visiting the practice. Those patients and visitors who arrive without a mask will be given mask to wear. Please don’t be offended when the reception staff ask you to wear a mask as we are only doing this to protect you, the other patients and the staff. We appreciate your cooperation in these difficult times. Many thanks David Harding, Practcie Manager

28th March 2022 Covid Spring Booster
As a precautionary strategy, an extra spring dose is being advised, to sustain protection whilst JCVI continues to review the epidemiological situation, ahead of an expected booster programme in autumn 2022.
The committee recommended that a booster dose should be given around 6 months after the last vaccine dose to:
- Adults aged 75 years and over
- Residents in a care home for older adults, and
- Individuals aged 12 years and over who are immunosuppressed
Patients aged over 75 will reach an interval of around six months from their previous dose between March and June 2022. They are recommended to visit PRSA (Princess Royal Sports Areana) as a walkin patient.
Immunosuppressed individuals who have received an additional primary dose may have received the booster (fourth) dose more recently. These latter individuals and other eligible people who received their last vaccine more recently should also be offered the booster during the spring campaign providing there is at least three months from the previous dose. This will ensure they have additional protection against a potential summer wave and will align with their peers to facilitate an autumn programme.
The GP prcatice will be working with the Care Homes to vaccinate their residents.
