COVID-19 vaccine Oxford-AstraZeneca and blood clotting

Recently there have been reports of an extremely rare but serious condition involving blood clots and unusual bleeding after AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccination.  The national committee which recommends on vaccines has therefore recommended that patients under 40 years are no longer offered this vaccine for their first dose. If you have already had a first dose of AZ vaccine without suffering this rare side effect you should still complete the course with the AZ vaccine for your second dose, even if you are under 40.  For more information please see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-and-blood-clotting/covid-19-vaccination-and-blood-clotting

New Patient Registration

To register with the practice you must live within our practice area.

You can either hand in your medical card or fill in a form at reception.

All newly registered patients will be asked to make an appointment with our practice nurse or nursing assistant for a short health check. We ask that you bring a urine sample with you (a white topped bottle is available to collect at reception) and any medication that you take regularly. We regard this as important as it bridges the gap until we receive your medical records from your previous GP.

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.
