We have suspended bookings for our flu clinics due to unforeseen road freight challenges. We are not cancelling appointments already booked at the moment, if we have to cancel clinics we will be in touch with those patients who have already booked. Please do not call the surgery. We will keep this website and our Facebook page updated with the latest situation.
Due to the shortage of blood test tubes NHS England have advised all GP practices that testing must be halted until 17 September 2021, except for clinically urgent testing.
Examples of clinically urgent testing include:
• Bloods that are required to facilitate a two week wait referral
• Bloods that are extremely overdue and/or essential for safe prescribing of medication or monitoring of condition
• Bloods that if taken could avoid a hospital admission or prevent an onward referral
• Those with suspected sepsis or conditions with a risk of death or disability
CORONAVIRUS - VACCINATION UPDATE
For COVID-19 vaccinations please contact the National Booking Service to make an appointment - not your GP practice. All local sites are now available through the National Booking Service online or by calling 119 and it's the best way to get an appointment for both 1st and 2nd doses if you don’t have an appointment already. Please don't hesitate, when it's your turn to be vaccinated please do so as soon as possible. The NHS appreciates that at times the system can be busy and but be assured we will make sure everyone is offered the opportunity to be immunised so please keep trying. New clinics are being set up all the time at various locations including some community pharmacies so your patience is appreciated.
You can find more information on the vaccine here Covid Vaccination Leaflet and also on the Government website here. For any queries you might have please see BSW Clinical Commissioning Group's website Frequently Asked Questions
Covid-19 Vaccination Appointment Transport
Link 6 & RWB Good Neighbour Scheme is available to take patients to and from Covid-19 vaccination appointments for those who are unable to access transport from family or friends.

Barnes Couches are also offering a return transport service to Covid-19 vaccine appointments in Wiltshire for a small charge. For more information or to book call 01793 821303.
COVID-19 VACCINATION CERTIFICATES/PASSPORTS
We are unable to provide you with certification of Covid vaccination. These can be obtained from 17th May either by calling 119 (option 1, then option 2, then option 3 - vaccination status certification queries) or from the NHS App - you just need your NHS number and a passport or driving licence to set it up.
