We would ask at this time you do not call the surgery requesting a Covid Vaccination as you will be contacted when it is the right time for you to come forward. 

Phone calls to the surgery regarding Covid Vaccinations are putting an increased pressure on the surgery, and is making it more challenging for us to do our routine work.  

Meanwhile, we all need to keep the advice of hand washing, face masks and social distancing. 

Thank you for your help, support and patience in helping us to help you.
