We are delighted to announce that we have started the COVID vaccination programme. All vaccines are being done at Queensway Medical Centre and we are working closely with local practices in the town and surrounding villages to ensure all residents receive the vaccine. Please be assured the practice will be contacting patients in accordance with Government guidance either by telephone or text message and we request you do not call the surgery asking for an appointment. Those who are housebound or in care homes will be contacted separately.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, to protect our
patients and our staff we have had to put a number of procedures in place as
- All appointments will be done via
telephone triage and you will only be invited up to the surgery by a Clinician
if absolutely necessary.
- Necessary booked Treatment Area appointments and blood taking will continue to go ahead.
- The front doors remain locked but an intercom has been installed that you will need to ring if you have to attend the surgery.
- Prescriptions can be requested by phone, post, your pharmacy, letter box (at the front of the building), or online via Patient Access if you are registered for this service.
- All prescriptions will be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy.
If you or anyone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19, please do NOT attend the surgery, You must follow the isolation guidelines as set by the Government.
If you attend the surgery you MUST wear a face covering. Unfortunately the practice does not have sufficient stock to provide these.
Medical Centre would like to thank all of its patients for their understanding
during this difficult time.
For more information please view this page.
If you havenât already done so and are eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination, please contact the surgery to book an appointment. This includes all patients over the age of 65, those with certain health conditions, pregnant women, carers or if you live with someone who is at high risk from coronavirus (NHS shielded patient). We have not yet been given any further information regarding vaccines for those older than 50.
