Noticeboard

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how we contact you will be different at the moment.  This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.  Face to face appointments are available, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what is most appropriate for you and to keep staff and patients safe.

Please DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have an appointment

Vaccine Scam Alert

We are aware some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the covid vaccine.  In some cases people are asked to press a number on their keypad or send a text message to confirm they would like the vaccine.  Doing so is likey to result in a charge to the phone bill.  In other cases callers are offered the vaccine for a fee and asked for bank details.  Please take care.

 

COVID- 19 Vaccines and Information

A-Z Vaccine FAQs COVID 19 vaccines for our patients are being provided at Musgrove Park Medical Centre.  There will be home visits for housebound patients.

We are inviting patients based on the national priority list. If you are in cohort 1-9 and haven't already had a first dose please contact us.  If you are not in these cohorts please be patient and wait to be contacted about when the vaccine is available for you.  

Our phone lines are extremely busy due to patients ringing with queries. The team is doing their best to answer your queries, but national guidance can be found using the link below. Please note the cohorts have been set nationally and our staff cannot influence this.

You can help us by responding to any text invitations as soon as you receive them to avoid us having to contact you.

We are also receiving many calls regarding second doses. As soon as we have further information we will contact you so there is again no need to contact the Practice.  We have systems in place ready to go as soon as we are given the second dose vaccine delivery dates.   However, if you have not heard from us regarding your second dose by the 11th week after your first dose please contact us.

Please remember once vaccinated you should continue to follow social distancing rules and any government guidance on restrictions. 

Thank you to all our patients for their continued understanding and support in these difficult times. Our teams are working extremely hard to vaccinate as many people as possible as soon as possible.
