Covid 19 – New Variant and the latest Updates from the Government

Posted on December 16th, 2021

In line with the Government’s announcement, the NHS is aiming to offer every adult the
chance to book a COVID-19 booster vaccine by the end of the year. This means our practice
is now prioritising the booster rollout.
As part of this, some of our routine services may be stood down temporarily to allow us to
focus on protecting as many patients as possible.
We are still there for anyone who may need care for an urgent need, but would ask for
patience as we support this key national priority over the coming weeks. We hope to be able
to stand back up any services as soon as possible and will update this page as soon as we
know more.
Please don’t forget there are many services available for you, depending on your condition.
These include:
• Self-care – This is the best choice to treat minor illnesses and injuries such as hangovers,
coughs, colds, grazes, small cuts or sore throats. Many of these can be treated at home,
simply with over-the-counter medicines and plenty of rest.
• Pharmacy – Pharmacists can give advice on and treat a range of symptoms. They can
support you with things such as diarrhoea, earaches, painful coughs, sticky eyes, teething
and rashes. Please be aware that some of our pharmacies are also delivering the
vaccination programme.
• NHS 111 – You can access 111 online or via the telephone. This is for any urgent but
non-life threatening health concerns. They will be able to signpost you to the relevant
service and provide advice where appropriate, or book you into a walk-in centre or minor
injury unit
• A&E / 999 – You should only attend A&E or dial 999 in a life-threatening emergency such
as severe bleeding, breathing difficulties and severe chest pain
