As has been made clear by the government we face an impending challenge with cases of Covid rising rapidly.
There has been a national ask for us to urgently support increasing the covid booster delivery over the coming weeks.
We have been asked to prioritise urgent care and cancer symptoms during this period, which allows our teams to deliver extra vaccines during the next few weeks by stopping routine work
If you feel that your problem is urgent and cannot wait until the New Year, or you have symptoms that could be suggestive of cancer please contact the surgery.
Information about whether symptoms need urgent help can be found at NHS 111 Online.
We will continue to keep the econsult system open to help support our patients but you may be asked to contact the practice again in the New Year after this has been triaged
We know cancelling appointments is frustrating but we would assure that we would only take this decision if we absolutely had to. We thank you for your patience and support during this incredibly challenging time.
